Who is this for?
The #IBCT promotion was designed to motivate people to consider the fastest growing opportunity of the last decade. Making money online. Blogging for profit is real.
You might be shocked if you knew how much money many of the websites featured on #IBCT are earning every week.
The blog owners will tell you that it’s not about the money it’s about the freedom they enjoy in their day to day life.
Hopefully this information will inspire and motivate you to consider blogging as a means to grow your business online.
The #IBCT is for you it’s also for me as I dream to one day have a website on a list like this. One step at a time, lets move it.
What is the Future of the #IBCT?
The future of the tournament is unlimited.
I am extremely excited by the success of the technology conferences and I have big hopes of one day seeing the International Blogger Championship Tournament make it to this level.
