Cherry Hill, New Jersey, August 28, 2006:
ResponsePlanet.com, the open public forum for ratings, rants and reviews, has announced a new "Write & Win a Cash Prize" contest to provide bloggers and commentators an opportunity to get paid to voice their opinion and express themselves powerfully. The contest is open to any person from anywhere in the world, making it a truly global competition.
ResponsePlanet.com has made it extremely easy for anyone to participate in this novel contest. Participants have to simply go to the home page of ResponsePlanet.com website and choose to write a review/ commentary on any one of the following 12 themes: Companies, Employers, Healthcare, Education, Politics, Music, Television, Movies, Culture, Cities, Travel and Sports. Each commentary has to be a minimum of 100 words and must be written in English.
The entries will be judged for objectivity, clarity of writing and overall quality of the review. The pieces should clearly communicate why the writers expressed the views that they have. The contest is open from August 28, 2006 and there are no limits to the number of entries each participant can post, though contest organizers reserve the right to delete obscene, hateful and derogatory reviews.
"We believe this contest will be a great platform for more people to openly express themselves,"says Jonathan Gropper, co-founder of ResponsePlanet.com. "Today, thanks to the Internet, consumers have more power than ever to force companies to listen and respond to their feedback. Our site provides the medium for consumers to express themselves and publicly rate people/companies/ products/services that are supposed to serve them. With this contest, we hope to stimulate greater participation from consumers in improving service levels for their own benefit; this is only the first of many such activities that we have lined up, which will be unveiled in due course."
Results will be announced on every first
of the month. The winner
will be awarded a cash
prize of US$100, to be
sent via PayPal.
