Marketing Pilgrim’s SEM Scholarship contest revisited

At dinner in Chicago I was fortunate to be able to visit with Andy Beal and Ben Wills, winner of Andy’s SEM Scholarship contest. I commented that I had learned a lot and shared some of my views about the contest. I also talked about how all that great content was now buried in the mounds of blog posts that Andy’s so fond of creating. 

Andy said to send him over my thoughts and that it would be a good idea to revisit the contest now that the dust had settled. This is a great way to repurpose content (that may not be the correct description but fits in this case). I think other bloggers should take note and dig up some of their great posts and comment on what has changed. There is so much content out there and to write about it once and then never visit it again, is a waste.



  1. Thanks for bringing it up with Andy. I agree with your comments about the contest too. More than anything it was a great learning experience for me. I got to try a few things and see what did and didnt’ work. I also got to know some people that I didn’t previously, yourself being one. Hopefully one of these days I can get to one of the conferences and meet everyone in person.

    I’m looking forward to Andy’s next contest and hoping to have the time to spend with it. Win or lose I think it will be another great learning experience.
