12 days into the contest and I'm dazed and confused...

So I am sure many of you have been trying to get votes everyday.  I have had hope with all the marketing I have been doing and having my friends and friends of friends vote that I would pop up into the top 10 but it hasn't happened.  I sent Walmart an email asking for the vote counts so I could see how far behind I am. THey sent a note back saying at this time they do not display the voting counts.  The only positive thing I can say about the contest/top 10 is everyday there are a couple new (never been in the top 10) videos on the list.  Which means that 1 days activity can get someone enough votes to springboard them way up the rankings.  

However here are some of my other observations.  Many of the video that have been in the top 10 have only less than 300 views?  How can product be getting views with out people watching the video?  some of the videos in the top ten I watch and think, You have to be kidding me! (This one is NUMBER 4!!! )  This morning's top 10 has company (Grasshopper Outdoor Products) that hold 3 of the top ten spots.  They entered 3 videos and they hold spots 3, 6, and 7!  They average videos for these videos are just 500! 

I am very frustrated by the lack of details for the voting.  I can't wrap my head around how many votes these videos have.


  1. Don't despair, you did a great job and tried very hard as did the other 4000 contestants. I think they really should have three versions to the contest. Most text votes, most FB votes, and most YouTube Views and I think they should show up as they come in. For people who have a large cell phone audience (I'm not sure how that happens) they don't even need people to view there youtube video to vote for there product and they don't even have to see there website or go to there FB page to vote or even the Walmart Get on the Shelf contest webpage to vote.
    For example the lady with the snapit eye glass thing waited outside a TV station and got interviewed and made everyone in the audience text there votes in before leaving. That was very smart of her. Doing it like we do, asking people one at a time via social networking and stuff is going to limit you to how many people you know who are not going to feel like they are getting spammed and are with you on it. Well established companies who can afford top of the line video production, tv, radio ads, networks and things like that are going to have an advantage versus small business owners like yourself, myself and the other 4000 folks who did it the old fashioned way. One by one requests. You have to wonder though, why a company that already has that kind of support is doing in a contest like this. Anyway, don't give up. Everyone who try's is a winner!
