If you were paying attention during my October 2008 Month in Review post on Sunday, then you should have seen this contest coming a mile away. Yup, it’s time for me to give away some more stuff to a lucky Beyond the Rhetoric reader. Are you feeling lucky? Does luck have anything to do with it?

What Can I Win?

Naturally, the first thing that you’ll want to know about any contest is what you can win. I don’t blame you. Let’s have a look at what’s up for grabs.

Pictured above are three great iPod accessories from the good people at Griffin Technology. On the left is the Griffin Simplifi, a handy iPod dock that also acts as a card reader and a USB hub. In the center is the Griffin iTrip Universal, an FM transmitter that is self-powered and will work with just about any MP3 player. And on the right is the Griffin AeroSport, a protective case and armband for the 2nd-generation iPod touch.

But wait, there’s more. I’m also offering a free paid review on Beyond the Rhetoric. If you’ve read any of my reviews in the past, then you’ll know that I offer great exposure and plenty of constructive feedback. So, to sum up what you can win in this contest:

  • Griffin Simplif iPod dock with card reader and USB hub ($70 value)
  • Griffin iTrip Universal FM transmitter ($40 value)
  • Griffin AeroSport protective case and armband for iPod touch ($30 value)
  • Paid review on Beyond the Rhetoric ($70 value)

That’s a total value of over $200. And yes, I’ll ship anywhere that has access to regular mail. Malaysia and Finland are fair game. Antarctica is not. Sorry penguins.

How Do I Win?

You might be wondering why I decided to call this the funnel vision contest. Well, I’d like to get more referral traffic to Beyond the Rhetoric, because the vast majority of site visitors are still coming by way of search engines and social media. I’d like to get a little more exposure in the blogosphere as a whole, so that’s where you come in.

Send as many visitors as you can from your blog (or website) to Beyond the Rhetoric during the month of November.

You can use just about any method that you’d like. Include my posts in your speedlink sessions, feature a link in the sidebar, recommend my blog to your readers… whatever you’d like. The only catch is that you can’t use underhanded methods like loading my blog in an iframe or anything like that. I’ll leave the definition of “cheating” at my discretion.

The winner is the person/blog that sends the most referral traffic to Beyond the Rhetoric, as determined by the data reported by Google Analytics on December 1. This is for all traffic generated during the month of November 2008, so if you’ve already send some visitors my way, they count. The winner will be announced in early December.

Good luck to everyone who enters. If you have any questions concerning any of the finer details, feel free to ask through the comment form below.
