RateDiary Facebook Contest

RateDiary Facebook Drawing

At RateDiary, we’re nothing if not attentive, and we have noticed something very odd.

While our Twitter contest has over 40 likes in 11 days, our Facebook contest has a grand total of… 1 like. And that “like” was us.

So, our greatest minds got on the case, analyzing the situation backwards, forwards, sideways, and in every diagonal direction you could think of, and came up with a startling conclusion.

The Facebook contest was too complicated.

Therefore, we have revised the Facebook contest, along with the rules of it, as follows.

The prize is the same as before, an Apple iPad, but this time, getting a chance at it is a lot simpler. The first step has already been followed by about 39 people. Don’t worry guys, this step includes all people who have already followed it, as well as all people who follow it for the next 90 days.

What is the magical first step? “Like” RateDiary on Facebook. Simple as that.

The second step isn’t much harder, take this Note (on Facebook) and Share it on your public Facebook feed, to let other people know about our great contest.

So, to recap

  1. “Like” us on Facebook
  2. Share this note on your public Facebook feed

This contest has a deadline! On May 26, 2013 the clock stops. We will collect all names of people who have completed the two simple tasks we have assigned them. All those usernames go into a party bag (We would have used a fancy hat, but the fancy hat has a contract with our Twitter contest) and one is pulled out. That person is the winner!

Much easier, don’t you think? And hey, if you share the note with a creative message, we might even collect it to display in a list on our page. We love a good chuckle, and we’re sure your friends will appreciate something clever as well.

Looking forward to seeing what you have to say!

Apple iPad Facebook Contest–Void


RateDiary Facebook Contest

RateDiary Facebook Contest


So get this, you know the whole RateDiary thing? We really want to kick it off, and kick it off big. So we’re starting out with a contest, giving away a free iPad.

You heard us right. We’re giving one person a free iPad.

We won’t say that person’s a lucky winner, ‘cause there’s no luck involved, just determination and a passion for RateDiary.

Here’s how it works.

The first thing you have to do is LIKE us on Facebook. Pretty simple, right? Just a click, and you’re already through the first step.

Second step isn’t too difficult either. You gotta head on over to and sign up as a consumer. It’s completely free to consumers, and always will be.

Third step is a little harder, but honestly? We think you’re more than capable of it. You need to generate business referrals. Basically what that means, is that you print out a voucher inviting a business to join RateDiary. Not sure how? Don’t worry, we’ll be posting instructional videos soon, and you can always call 1-866-3REVIEW – (373-8439) or ask us how on our contact page.

So, you take the voucher, and in your most polite, non-threatening, and collected tone of voice explain the idea behind RateDiary, and offer it to the business to join. Please do not come up to them, shove the voucher in their face, scream random syllables, and run. Let them know there’s a special deal if they sign up before we finish the Mobile App!

Once you get 20 businesses to actually sign up, you’re almost there! How will we know which one has signed up because of you? Well, make sure they know about the specific code on the voucher you hand them, it will not only identify YOU as the reason they signed up, but you will receive $20 in your RateDiary account for each business that joins!

So, what do you need to do to complete the contest? You need to find 5 businesses that have signed up, purchase something, and ask them if you can review their establishment for a few RateDollars. Using the RateDollar voucher, and the special code on it, you leave these 5 businesses each a review and a rating.

So, just to summarize

  1. Like our Facebook
  2. Join RateDiary as a consumer
  3. Get 20 businesses to sign up
  4. Leave 5 reviews/ratings

There is no special drawing, or random lottery. And nobody will hop the inside track on you, or in real-people speech, RateDiary Team members and their families can not participate in these contests. We would love to, but we’re not fond of handcuffs or orange jumpsuits. The first person to reach all these criteria wins a free iPad, pure and simple. If you think you’ve met all the qualifications, shoot us an email at and we’ll see if you’re our first ever RateDiary contest winner.

Yes, we said first. Did you really think we wouldn’t have more of these? If you don’t catch it this time, just wait. We’ve got so much more in store for you.
