The "Why Do You Read Marketing Pilgrim" contest is now over and we have a winner. The odds were awesome for anyone that entered–you had a 1 in 47 chance of winning!

So who was our randomly chosen winner?

John Wayne Says it Best

Congratulations, drop me an email and I’ll send you the $500.

Thanks to John Honeck who randomly selected our winner.

Thanks to all that entered and shared their feedback about why they read Marketing Pilgrim. I appreciate your insight.

Stay tuned, we’ll have another contest to announce shortly.

  • Congratulations for John 🙂

  • Congrats to John. That was a neat sum isn’t ?

    Good job folks at Marketing Pilgrim that was a big giveaway.

    John, you got to brag about your win at Link And Earn. The place for professional braggers.

  • Andy,

    Although you closed comments on the apple doesn’t get it post, i had to tell you that i just loved the opinionated back and forth that your post generated! You were absolutely right in predicting the barrage, nay the avalanche of outpouring on the topic. And this leads me to believe, that with such phenomenal brand loyalty that Apple seems to inspire, they either do not need social media or that they already employ it at a more subliminal level.

    Phew! but that was really something! Did it really get abusive though? Pity about that when healthy debate degenerates into mudslinging and name calling. But do a controversial one again soon anyway:)

  • Zen

    Congratulations, John! Kudos on the cash. 😀

  • @Furniture Store – thanks for the feedback. The Apple fanatics did get abusive, and they clearly didn’t understand the point of my post. I had to close the comments because most of them came to a battle of wits, unarmed. 😉

  • really like to read at your good site.

  • Battle of wits unarmed! Really nice way of calling someone really dumb.

  • Congratulations John.

  • Congrats JOhn!!

    Thanks Andy for the exciting contest. Waiting for the next one.

    (And these tears here because I am happy :))

  • JUDD was the winner folks, read closer.

    I’m also more thankful than a Stadium full of turkey-stuffed football fans.

    They don’t quite have Turkey Day here in Australia like I’m used to, but the $500 made up for it.


    Thanks again Andy… smilin’ as I write this.
