Do you have a great idea for an online store, but you’re not sure how to get started without spending a lot of money to hire a developer to design and build it for you? Maybe you currently sell products online, but via a third party site like Etsy or Bonanza, and want to take things to the next level with a dedicated online store just for your products. Well now you could have the opportunity to make your vision a reality, without having to spend money buying ecommerce software. ZippyCart has partnered with SumEffect Inc., creators of the top-rated CoreCommerce ecommerce solution, for the “70 Websites Challenge” contest. This contest will allow five lucky winners to each win a free Starter-level online store for one year. This package would cost you $39.99 per month – that’s almost $500 in total over the course of a year. In addition we will also be giving away other cool schwag like ZippyCart t-shirts, stickers, and even a poster of the “70 Websites Challenge” graphic.
So I guess by now you probably want to know what the “70 Websites Challenge” contest is all about, and how you can enter to try and win an online store for a year powered by ecommerce software from CoreCommerce. Over the last decade more and more people are spending their free time surfing the Internet, reading news on their favorite blogs, checking their social networks, and looking for cool new websites that match their interests. As a result many people now have knowledge of hundreds of different websites – whether they realize it or not. This is what the “70 Websites Challenge” is all about. We’ve created a cool graphic that contains the names of 70 popular websites hidden in colorful and creative imagery. It’s a visual puzzle that you can try to solve.
Your job, should you choose to challenge yourself and enter, is to try and figure out at least 50 of the 70 websites represented in the imagery of the “70 Websites Challenge” graphic below, to be entered into the contest.
Maybe you need a bit of a push to get started so you can see exactly how the contest works. Do you see the chalk outline that is in a grid shape on the image? It looks a bit like the game Foursquare you played as a kid. So…you think that image might represent…oh…I don’t know…mobile check-in platform Foursquare.com? See how it works? Now that we’ve given you one answer for free, you only need to get 49 more to be eligible for the prizes. We’re pretty sure that once you get started you will want to figure out all 70!
If you want a little taste of how sweet the top prize from CoreCommerce truly is (and it is pretty sweet), then we recommend that you head over to their site to sign up for a free trial. Take a test drive and get a hands-on feel for exactly how easy it is to use their ecommerce software to create your very own online store. In the past, the CoreCommerce free trial was limited to 15 days, but now you can take as long as you want to get familiar with the product before you start paying for it.
