I’ve been meaning to run another competition on WP Mods for a long time. In the past I have mainly used Twitter to promote and track competitions here. The problem is I don’t use Twitter actively. I can understand why people love it and I appreciate it’s a great tool for connecting with like minded people. However, as someone who spends most of their time either writing articles or researching topics for articles, I find Twitter to be too much of a distraction (plus I’m not a huge fan of the one way conversation type service anyways).
On the other hand, Facebook is something that I have found myself logging into every day as so many of my friends use it. I also think it’s better that everyone can talk together rather than on a one to one basis (a la Twitter). As such, I am keen to interact more with WP Mods readers through Facebook. And what better way to start things off than with a huge WordPress theme competition :)
The Great WordPress Facebook Giveaway
When I contacted some theme developers about this competition I thought I would get an OK response. I have however been completely humbled and overwhelmed by the generosity shown by the premium theme community.
I really can’t say thank you enough to the following companies who have contributed designs for WP Mods readers: Aloha Themes, Bizz Themes, FlexiThemes, Foxhound Band Themes, Gabfire Themes, Magazine 3, Mojo Themes, Natty WP, Organic Themes, Organised Themes, Press 75>, Press Coders, Pro Theme Design, RichWP, Solostream, StudioPress, ThemeFuse, Theme Jam, Theme Junkie, Themify, Tokokoo, WooThemes and WP Zoom.
The competition is very straight forward. Every day we will be offering one premium WordPress design randomly to fans of the WP Mods Facebook Fanpage.
The table below details all of the themes that can be won. We have confirmed prizes in excess of $1,500 though we may plan on adding additional prizes as and when we can (perhaps some premium plugins too) – so make sure you you visit back for updates :)
