Announcing Winners Next Week: The Grand Viral Marketing Contest from Viral Content Buzz – {Closed}

Update: winners are announced here

This month at Viral Content Buzz we are happy to launch our first sharing contest: Add your high-quality article, have it shared and win $1000 in cash!

That’s a unique contest in one important way: You are losing nothing. All participants will get lots of exposure from social media shares our site will generate for your awesome articles.


  • Make sure your article is top-notch quality (the higher quality the article, the more shares it will generate as our users are all real and they only want to share great content that will add value to their social media streams)
  • You need to have a valid PayPal account (that’s how we’ll send you the prize)

There’s no need to enter the contest in any specific way: If you start using Viral Content Buzz, you are already in!

The contest ends on July, 12

The earlier you join, the more shares you’ll be able to generate!


  • The article that generates most shares from ViralContentBuzz wins $1000
  • The article that generates most clicks from VCB shares wins $500
  • The most shared contest announcement wins $200 (just blog about this contest and submit it in “Spread the word” section of the site).
    • *Note: We may give away several of these prizes if there are a few active candidates.
    • Badges: Feel free to use our badges as well as the official video to beautify your contest promotions.
  • Each of the winners will also get 200 free credits to continue enjoying ViralContentBuzz
  • We’ll also give away free credits to more active participants who will share great content adding quality to our platform

  • Bernard Z. says:

    Sounds Exiting! I wonder if I have to write a brand new article or if I can use an existing one. I haven’t really scheduled to write a new article this moth. Either way I hope Viral Content Buzz gets new members as I will be doing my part in order to ensure that this happens.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Silviu says:

    Hi Anna,

    I joined the contest. However it works bad from day 1. I cannot connect my social media accounts. I wrote them a message and I hope I’ll get an answer.
    I hope this is not a bad omen. The idea is wonderful.


  • I’m not sure if I’ll be able to take part in it, but I’ve shared the info across all my social media accounts.

  • Kristi Hines says:

    It’s not a post just about the contest, so I know it won’t qualify, but I did give your contest a mention in my Ultimate Guide to Blog Monetization. :)

  • Hi there,
    Sounds like a really great idea… However, whenever I try to access the members’ area or go to my dashboard I get the following error message:
    “Server Error :( Sorry, but the server encountered an error while processing your request.”
    Could you please tell me what to do to fix this or by what time will the site work so that I can participate? Thanks a lot in advance,

  • collins says:

    Good one from viralcontentbuzz i will surly take part in this contest not actually to win $1000 but to get my content all over the popular social networks

  • Interesting idea!
    I’m a vloger, so not sure if it applies to me, but I’ll check it out.
    Thank you!

  • Ana says:

    I am still getting a server error today after joining. On logging in it goes to with error message

    Server Error :(

    Sorry, but the server encountered an error while processing your request.


    • annsmarty says:

      This error isn’t repeating for everyone, so it’s hard to catch! We are looking hard though!

  • Darek says:

    Sound awesome!

    I just got few questions:
    1. People have articles submited here for ages will the old shares from those articles get into the count for the contest or is it only shares since the 12 June that counts?
    2. Is there going to be some sort of ranking to see whos the current winner?

    • annsmarty says:

      Hey Darek,

      1. Only projects which are added within June, 12 and July, 12 will be counted
      2. Well, this is our first contest and we’ll probably keep it quiet (as we are not sure what reaction will open stats cause)…

  • Anurag Jain says:

    This looks pretty awesome. I surely take part in this contest !

  • Silviu says:

    Hi Anna and Ann,

    I have just posted a review of Viral content Buzz on my site and added it for review on the appropriate section of the site. I hope it will be OK. I have also mentioned Traffic Generation Cafe in the same review.
    Well, I agree with rejecting old posts that are months old or years old. But you reject even posts that are just days old. I have a post written at the beginning of June, one of my best posts. According to your criteria it is too old. It is hard to find words to express my disappointment.
    Just one question: did you mention this rule in the promotional material before the contest? As far as I can remember, I didn’t see it.
    Restrictions and restrictions, rules that appear unexpectedly. It is harder and harder to keep up.
    Btw, that “Report as low quality” option is very dangerous. It needs manual monitoring and reviewing otherwise terrible abuses may appear. For example: I can identify a powerful competitor and then his or her best article. I will report that article as low quality. Other people can do that, too. Soon that article will be avoided and the author will lose any chance to earn something (despite the fact it is a high quality article).

    Have a nice day

    • annsmarty says:

      @Silviu I guess your projects were not rejected because the articles were old… There should be another reason stated in the rejection notification – please read it carefully

      Also, “Report as low quality” is moderated: That’s why it says “Report”: Nothing gets rejected without manual review…

      We have rejection process because we have quality guidelines in place:
      This is not share-automation platform: This is the service uniting people by interest and allowing only the highest quality content!

    I’m also getting the Server Error message when I use the Tweet, Facebook or Pinterest options, eg:

    Server Error :(
    Sorry, but the server encountered an error while processing your request.


  • Darren Wall says:

    Hi Ann,

    Arafath here and I came to know about Viral content buzz by means of update through my Myblogguest profile. I simply registered an account in VCB without familiar about anything. I added three project so far too. There are two people has tweet one of my project and I spend more than 5 hours in a day for Virtual Content Buzz nowadays. It’s interesting concept. I have a question, can you tell me where I can see my VBC rank?
