Wow! Just saw a post about this great competition on Tom Raferty’s Social Media blog (sorry Tom, but I don’t think your appeal for people not to enter is going to work).
This has to be one of the most compelling pieces of “link bait” I’ve seen in a while, and a great way to generate buzz in the local blogosphere. Who, within striking distance of this superb looking accommodation, wouldn’t want to enter this competition?

I’ll have to post this as an example on my Digital Marketing blog… which is woefully in need of more attention than it’s getting. Funny, but researching and writing the book it sits alongside (due for publication by Kogan Page later this year) seems to be taking up all of my time!
I wonder if posting the competition to another blog means I get two bites at the cherry?
All you have to do is link to their homepage using Luxury Self Catering as your anchor text, and, in the same post, link to the site of a friend who might also be interested in the competition.
For more information take a look at the Luxury Self Catering Weekend Give-Away Competition Page on the Glengarriff Lodge website.
Now all I have to do is think of a friend who’d be interested in the competition and link to their site. Now, let me see… friends with websites I can link to…. Hmm… that’s trickier than it should be… OK, how about Marc Holden over at Firehorse Imaging.
Good luck with the competition… as long as you don’t win, of course! I’ve decided that’s my prerogative.
