15,000 points passed & Apple MacBook Pro won!

Well hellooooooooo LeapFish Cash Dash contestants and interested parties! I am very happy to announce that I have passed the 15,000 point tier and won myself an Apple MacBook Pro! This is so very awesome. 

I was the first to achieve 15,000 points in the LeapFish Cash Dash, but Willie Ford Jr wasn't far behind and he has now also achieved MacBook Pro winning status. Joe Colburn is still rounding up the leaderboard and I expect him to hit 15,000 points in the near future.

I was actually a bit worried about whether or not I was going to win an Apple MacBook Pro. You see, I went on vacation, out of town, from May 7th - May 15th. That is a long time to be out of action in a "cash dash" contest. I was worried that some other contestants might sneak by and win all the prizes while I was gone.

However, before I left, I put in a LOT of work, creating content and trying to earn as many points as possible to get to the 15,000 point tier. That work has paid off! And, my worries were for naught. No one has stepped up to rocket themselves past the current 3 leaders and I still have a great chance at winning the Samsung LED TV, which I have to be one of the first 3 contestants to achieve 20,000 points to win.

Getting some competition at the top

In yesterday's LeapFish Cash Dash update, I wrote about how I took the lead in the contest, even after having a late start. Yesterday I was the sole person up at over 10,000 points, earning myself an iPad. Joe Colburn was next at 6,340 points and Willie Ford Jr at 5,355 points.

The Cash Dash is heating up at the top of the pack!  Today, the story is a bit different, Willie Ford Jr has joined the 10,000 point club with me and Joe Colburn has jumped up some points as well.

Here are the current standings as of this blog post:

Wes Novack10515 points
Willie Ford Jr10205 points
Joe Colburn6340 points

I'm not really sure how Willie Ford Jr is earning his points, so it actually surprised me that he jumped up that high into 2nd place.

I've continued to create content: blog posts, tweets, videos and more, which I hope will boost me over the 15,000 point threshold once all my content is reviewed (and hopefully approved) by the LeapFish Cash Dash team.

I noticed that Joe Colburn did a Cash Dash update video and gave me a shoutout in the video, which was cool to see. I learned about the contest from Joe and I'm sure he's happy to see me winning some prizes along with him.

So again, if you wanna join the rat-race, it's still possible. I started in the contest way late, but now I'm on top (for now). To enter the LeapFish Cash Dash contest, simply register here.

Andddd I take the lead!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I spent all day last Friday and many hours over the past weekend creating content for the LeapFish Cash Dash contest. All that hard work has payed off today when my point totals were pushed over 10,000 this morning, securing me one of the 3 Apple iPads that were up for grabs!

Here are the LeapFish Cash Dash leaderboard standings as of this blog post:

Wes Novack10315 points
Joe Colburn6340 points
Willie Ford Jr5355 points

I have created a ton of videos and other content (tweets, blog posts, etc) about LeapFish, which has allowed me to catch up to the leaders in this race, or "Cash Dash".

I gotta say thanks to LeapFish for putting on this contest and for offering up such great prizes. I'm highly looking forward to getting my hands on my shiny new Apple iPad!

I've had a chance to test out and play with an iPad before, thanks to a friend who brought one to lunch one day. I found it to be very easy to use, well designed and very functional. 

But even though I've won an iPad, I'm not gonna sit back and call it quits. The LeapFish Cash Dash still has Apple MacBook Pro's, Samsung 42" LED TV's and cash purses all available.

I'll continue trucking away at the contest, trying my best to accumulate as many points as possible.

And once again, I'd like to mention that it's not too late for  YOU to enter! If nothing else, you'll be entered into the cash drawings, for a chance to win some free moolah. How can you pass that up?

LeapFish Cash Dash update

In this post, I'll be discussing my standings on the LeapFish Cash Dash contest.

I entered the contest last Thursday, starting out in last place (obviously). With the top 3 leaders all near 5,000 points, I was distressed and concerned, wondering if I would be able to catch up to the leaders who all had a good head start. Yet, still, I pushed on ahead and I have now been bumped up to 1st place in the Cash Dash. Here are the current standings as of this post:

Wes Novack6525 points
Joe Colburn5800 points
Willie Ford Jr5255 points

How did I do it? Simply by creating content.As I explained in my LeapFish Cash Dash Intro post, you mostly gain points by creating content. Whether that content be tweets, blog posts, videos or linking to LeapFish from your website. Content is a very important aspect of the contest.

There is also the referral aspect though. You gain 30 points for every person that you refer to sign up for the Cash Dash, so the more people you refer, the higher your point totals are boosted. I've posted about the LeapFish Cash Dash just about everywhere I can think of, attracting friends and referrals to sign up for the giveaways.

So that's it. There's really no mystery or "trick" to what I'm doing. It's just plain ol hardwork, time and effort. Even with this post, I'm creating content for the contest and LeapFish is hoping that you do too.

There are numerous ways to win points and you can use a combination of methods for best results. The following actions earn you points:

As you can see, there are many different methods to earn points, most of which require you to generate some content around LeapFish. This is a campaign to increase awareness of the website and service, so it makes sense.

The second part of the contest is cash prize raffles, but LeapFish is doing these raffles only when a certain amount of people set their homepage to Even if you don't want to create content and aim for the prizes, a simple registration enters you into the cash prize drawings.

So get registered, get creating content and good luck.
