Here is a list of winners by first name and last initial, plus city and state (US) or country (outside US). All the winners should have received an e-mail from SearchNetworking.com by now, asking for their mailing addresses so that the physical paper vouchers may be mailed to them (if you haven’t gotten such a message yet, please post a comment here to the blog and I’ll work with you to get this taken care of). For the benefit of all and sundry, here are the names, in order of ranking (highest ranked response comes first):
- Melissa S Spring, TX
- Thomas L Germany
- John C Virginia Beach, VA
- Renne B Philippines
- Flavio B Brazil
- Steven M SE Ontario, CA
Now that they’ve all won, I need each of the winners to fill out the following questionnaire, so that I can write up interviews with each of them, mostly for this blog. As the “big winner” Melissa S. of Spring, TX, will be profiled in a SearchNetworking.com article as soon as I can get her on the phone for an interview, and write up the results. Stay tuned for lots more information about all of these folks right here!
