Okay, so maybe this prize doesn’t have anything to do with e-marketing. Maybe the process required to win it doesn’t really even teach you about marketing. But, the chance to win a free Xbox 360 Elite and a copy of the new Grand Theft Auto IV to be released at the end of April for doing nothing more than writing a posts and comments is something much to good to not announce.

John Chow of John is hosting the contest, sponsored by Top Hosting Center, a company claiming they have the “best web hosting plan on the web.”

The contest involves doing certain things to get you a set number of entries into the contest:

  • Write a short post about the contest on your own blog linking to the contest post and gain 250 “tickets.”
  • Become an affiliate of Top Hosting Center, receiving 50% commission for each sale you refer, as well as 250 “tickets” in this contest.
  • Every comment you leave on another blog’s latest post talking about and linking to this contest page will get you 25 tickets.

  • Mass message your MySpace or Facebook friends and gain 25 tickets
  • Subscribe to John and Top Hosting Center’s blog feeds and get 25 more tickets
  • Give the contest post a thumbs up on StumbleUpon and receive 10 tickets.

You can gain entries in this contest until April 30th, when the winner will be picked in a lottery type contest.
