Peer-to-Peer Lending (P2P Lending) Video Contest Update: 12 videos, 12,000 views

We are about half-way through the first person-to-person lending YouTube Video Contest announced by Centernetwork, Prosperlendingreview and on this blog on July 19. The contest will be running for another 8 days until August 10.

The goal of this contest is to invite Lending Club users (and just about everyone) to think of entertaining or educational ways to convey the benefits of p2p lending and to help spread the word about those benefits. With more than 12,000 views, the contest has already reached its objective!

For a reason that we cannot fully explain, we are getting a lot of animal-related videos, including cats, raccoons, lions, alligators and buffalos! As an example, you can see lions (banks) and alligators (credit card companies) attacking a buffalo (borrower) who gets rescued by other buffalos (lending club members) in this video posted yesterday by the latest entrant.

The winning contender so far is Steve Dinelli, with more than 6,000 views on YouTube with this excellent Lending Club Contest video.

Videos can get several thousand views in just a few hours on YouTube, so there is still time to enter the contest — all bets are off until the very last day. Remember, there is a $5,000 cash prize going to the entrant with the most views on YouTube. You can enter by posting your video in this Facebook group.

More animals, anyone? 🙂

    I still say the fallowing video is the best in the contest. I mean
    in all honesty if you give the guy a little extra time this could
    turn into a actual worthy add that can be aired right away. Then
    again thats just my 2 cents on thing.
