Surreal Giveaway – Prizes Worth $1200 From Surreal CMS

Categories Freebies, Web Design

The Surreal CMS crew does what every new startup should do to get new clients: offer some free licenses in order for a few lucky people to discover it, test it and spread the good word! So we have four prizes: 3 one-year subscriptions ($875), and one lifetime subscription (priceles$). Read the details below and be sure to try this great CMS

What is Surreal CMS?


For those of you who don’t know yet, Surreal CMS is not a technique used by Dali, it’s a popular remotely hosted content management system (CMS) that was designed with simplicity in mind. They say most people who can browse the Web will be able to use Surreal CMS with little to no training. However, here’s some further documentation.

Why Is It So Cool?

Do you want to manage multiple websites from one location, use your existing website(s) and web host(s), get a customizable theme and branding, access the CMS from your own domain that works with virtually any FTP/SFTP server? Well there’s an app for that!

The Giveaway

To win one of the licenses offered by the Surreal team, you must do one of the following. The winners will be randomly picked and listed here Friday. Good luck!

* share us in the comments something that inspired you recently (non-spammy links please)

  • I found this blog very funny and inspiring

  • i would say the visuals on Wired. The layout of the magazine could easily be transformed into some really good looking blog themes. Other then that I also have a bunch of web inspiration sites. i usually share all of them on emberapp.

    I was inspired by a smart car sitting in front of my local IKEA this morning . As a car guy I should hate this little thing, but I want one. The only thing stopping me from buying one is the fact that I use a scooter (electric wheelchair) and it would not fit.

  • This example of the awesome power and exciting possibilities of html5 is truly inspirational to me and hopefully the industry of web designers:

    I have personally been inspired by all the new CMS options out there and the progress that is being made to use programs like WordPress, Drupal, etc as CMS editors. The future will only get better as more and more CMS plugins add functionality to those softwares.

    For me was a reminder what happened 12 years a go with Apple and Microsoft, and shows how Steve Jobs can see beyond what was going on between Apple and Microsoft, and if did not happen we would see a very different Apple or would they still be around? Apple have influenced many people and companies in the past 12 years. And now have reached a point where companies want to imitate but here is the first mistake, don't imitate, innovate!
