A very good friend of mine, Jo at Jobeaufoix.com, is one of a hundred bloggers that have been asked to promote Next in the run up to Christmas. Apparently, if she can motivate her readers to click through from her blog, to the Next website, she will receive a share of a prize fund that has been set aside to reward the bloggers. That all sounds fabulous, but I don't think the rules play in Jo's favour. Jo's blog is witty, well written, perceptive, informative and, just a little bit, cheeky so why would anyone want to leave her blog to visit the Next website? I have no idea? But, if her readers don't visit the Next website she will miss out on this share of generosity and remain a skint single parent in the run up to Christmas. If that happens her adorable children will, once again, have to be satisfied with a small orange and a piece of coal for Christmas.
I wanted to help Jo in her efforts but I didn't know how and this has been troubling me. My little boy saw me pondering and asked what the matter was. I explained the problem and he said, "I know how to help Daddy!" and he ran upstairs to his bedroom. I followed and found him in his wardrobe wearing his favourite jumper. "Look Daddy!" he exclaimed, "if people know they can buy cool clothes like this they won't be able to resist visiting the Next website!"
"Very true!" I thought.
But, I know some people won't be drawn to the Next website just to view their great quality clothing range. No, they will expect more - something in return! I needn't have worried though, for as Father Christmas explained to my two children, "If you visit jobeaufoix.com and click through to the Next website you can enter a daily prize draw to win lots of fabulous prizes."
There you have it. All you have to do is visit jobeaufoix.com and click through to the Next website and everyone's a winner baby!
