I am usually very sceptical of voting contest nowadays because of the high frequency of cheating and vote buying tactics.
There are serial contest junkies out there who make a career of winning marketing contests after contests. I kid you not. I know because I have dealt with my fair share in my line of work as an online marketing person.
Nonetheless, a friend asked me to join this contest by watch brand, Maurice Lacroix and I entered for the Chinese blogger position for fun. I love water sports and I watch beautifully designed watches. This campaign seems just right:
Thanks to the support from my Facebook friends mostly, surprisingly, I managed to lead in the Chinese blogger category for the past few weeks since I joined!
I was overjoyed… that was till a few minutes ago when I realised a certain contestant had jumped by over 10,000 votes overnight and overtook me in a few hours, out of the blue. I do not know how the person did it, but it was a shrewd move; jump voting at the very last minute so others won’t have the time to rally for votes in response.
I am not going to give up with a fight. Not when I have managed to come so far with the help of so many kind friends who voted for me.
Thank you very much!
If I win, I promise you nothing but the best of my efforts in bringing both Chinese and English blog entries to everyone on the record-breaking attempt by Seb.
If I don’t win, it’s okay too. I tried what I could and I am very appreciative so many of you tried too to help me win this. I am loved. 🙂
