How much info will we get on The Walmart Get on the Shelf Contest Top 10? I wonder what kind of breakdown will the contestants receive? Will we know how many votes we got? How many votes did it take to break into the Walmart Get on the Shelf Contest Top10? What will happen if the top vote getters suck? Will they replace them with hand picked products? We want to know! My guess is that there will be some real duds in the Top 10. Whatever happened to the criteria that QVC and other major retailers use to pick winning products? For example "Products that are highly demonstrable, solve problems, make life easier, appeal to a broad audience and have unique features and benefits are of interest to QVC" Does that all go out the window?

Walmart Get on the Shelf Contest halfway to the Top Ten Winners. As April 3rd approaches we are well into the first voting phase of the contest. We have been watching the Top 10 trending products and it's clear anyone can still get enough votes to make it to the Top 10 second round. We should be rising to the Top 10 trending products soon because it looks to be totally random. jk In the the meantime vote for us:

http://getontheshelf.com/ Are the top "Trending Products" really that good?

Are the Walmart Contest Top 10 going to be voted on by the contestants only? Where is the publicity for this contest? The only people that seem to be aware of this contest are the contestants themselves. I've asked lots of people not directly involved with the contest (but surf the net, watch TV, and shop at Walmart) and no one has any idea it exists. According to Adam over at http://www.tryingtogetontheshelf.blogspot.com/ even the official Walmart Get on the Shelf Contest video has only a few more hits than there are entries: "I noticed something else on YouTube that I thought was interesting. Do you remember the first Walmart video announcing the contest on GetOnTheShelf.com? YouTube shows it to have only 6,647 views! I find this very surprising. The contest generated 5,575 entries. This means there were only 1,072 views extra views! Heck I was probably half of those :) I find this puzzling!". We agree Adam ! With only a couple of days left before voting begins we are realizing that they are failing to promote this contest, and letting down all of the contestants that worked so hard to produce their videos.
Wake up and start promoting our contest !!!

http://getontheshelf.com/ Is this what the voters will see? If so, how can each entry get a fair chance to be seen? It seems that a product won't get the exposure if it doesn't make the top ten. So how do you make the top 10? I wonder how many of these larger compnaies will be buying adds and getting news coverage (like on CNN) to get an unfair voting advantage?
