Give It Away, Give It Away, Give It Away Now!

You could be a winner

Oh boy oh boy! I’m currently running my very first giveaway. (No, I’m not giving away Kids Belts.) It’s not going very well so far. It’s a short term contest that ends Friday at 9pm est, but that still gives everyone time to enter. Now to get them to enter…hmmm….

I submitted this contest to several giveaway websites but it doesn’t seem to be having any impact. I’m not sure if the problem lies in my lack of following or the prize value being to low. I am sure it’s mostly due to the lack of following. Not many people know I’m doing 30 posts in 30 days to promote our main business, selling Kids Belts. Those who do aren’t really interested in a contest unless I’m giving away $20,000. Which I’m not.

I’m thinking there must be a secret to this giveaway thing. Just like when I started selling Kids Belts 2 1/2 years ago, I was lost and overwhelmed by the (mis)information out there. How do you know what’s going to work? How do you what sites to submit to? I’m going to go have to pick some brains about this. I’ll get back to you.

Meanwhile, do yourself a favor and enter the giveaway!

Old MacDonald had 100 Christmas Songs (AND a giveaway!!!)

The Bug plays Old MacDonald Piano iPhone app

I am a bit behind. Okay, that’s an understatement. I am extraordinarily behind. But thankfully I have patient friends, family, and business acquaintances – that are friends – I mean, who are we kidding.  So I’m combining 2 posts about the same company because I owe them big time and I love them dearly.

This particular blog post, while not about Kids Belts, it is about another one of my favorite things, iPhone Apps, in particular, Kids iPhone Apps. Anything that keeps my kids occupied and not fighting makes me happy. Here’s the thing… My kids love these apps by Kiboomu and I’ve been meaning to post about the Old MacDonald app, just like I did with the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star app. Did you know that because of the Twinkle Twinkle app my son now can play the song on anything?

Kiboomu Old MacDonald iPhone App

And now the Bug, my little almost 4 year old girl, is enthralled with the Old MacDonald app. She loves to sing along. She loves the animal noises. And she loves to play along on the keyboard. The super cool thing is that she can change instrument sounds. I’m definitely giving this app 2 really big thumbs up and 5 stars!

Kiboomu 100 Christmas Songs

You know what else Kiboomu has? Just in time for Christmas 100 Christmas songs for just $5.99! If you were to buy these songs individually, you’d pay 99¢ each. So altogether you get $99 worth of music for less than $6. Wowza! That’s a 94% savings!!! Get it now while it’s still Christmas time. Your kids will love it!

This Just In: Kiboomu would like to give not 1 but 3 lucky winners BOTH the Old MacDonald app AND 100 Christmas Songs!!!

Do you wanna win or what? Okay, do one or all of the following:

  1. “Like” Kiboomu on Facebook and tell them “Common ¢ents Mama says Merry Christmas and Thank you for the Giveaway!“.
  2. Tweet “Old MacDonald had 100 Christmas Songs #GIVEAWAY on @DapperSnappers blog Thank you @Kiboomu! #CONTEST
  3. Subscribe to my blog.

Each will count as 1 entry, so leave a separate comment with your email address and what you did to earn the entry. If you tweeted, please comment the link to your tweet. Contest is open to US and Canada. Contest ends Friday, December 10th, 2010 at 9 pm EST. Winners will be picked using

So there you have it! Short but sweet. It all boils down to this; Kiboomu rocks!
