To Honor my Departed Mother. Free Hosting Winner Announced Congrats...
 
Hi Warriors

My Mother died on Christmas Day and it was a horrible blow. She was a kind, gentle and loving woman who raised 4 kids after my Father died when I was 4. She was generous and giving. She always told me no matter my circumstances I always had something to give to help others even if it was just a smile. To Honor her Memory I'd like to give a totally broke IM newbie a break and a hand up.

I'll give you 1 domain name of your choosing, free hosting for 1 year on one of my servers. It has cPanel and Fantasico and I'll configure it to handle additional addon domains and give you plenty of disk space. I'll also include an autoresponder account with 4 autoresponders and an opportunity to send an email marketing series to one of my lists. I'm also offering a chance (you'll have to show me an honest effort 1st) to be a full partner on a product launch that should be ready by mid to late March. I'm also going to include coaching from me and $200 to seed a Marketing Budget for PPC and such stuff. "Gratis". I haven't figured out all the details yet so please bear with me.

I'd just like to offer this (in my Mom's Honor) to an honest, ethical, struggling and broke IM newbie who has some skills with a computer and isn't afraid of putting in an honest effort.

Reply here or PM me. I'd like to help everyone but can't. I need to see something from you to pick you. A thoughtful, articulate, creative and a meaningful reply here will help you gain this opportunity. Sincerity is a must.

Here's what is being offered:

  1. Free Hosting for 1 year
  2. Autoresponder Account 1 year Free
  3. War Room Membership (Priceless)
  4. Coupon Commando Software ($147 Donated by my Partner and Great Friend Blase DesMarais)
  5. Slobs 2.0 or Artifact Software (Donated by Warrior Glenn Leader)
  6. MiniSite Graphic Set (Donated by Warrior Karl Warren)
  7. Membership Site STARTUP Kit (Donated by Warrior WD Mino, Hockey Nock About :;) and my new bud Will)
  8. $200 Marketing Budget for PPC and such...
  9. Public Domain Research Assistance Donated by Warrior JMB Marketing Group
Runner Up: War Room Membership (Donated by Warrior Laurenceh)
1 Year Free Hosting (Donated by Warrior WillDL)
Membership Site Kit (Donated by Warrior WD Mino)

Thanks to the Kind contribution of Warrior Joesph Ratliff we are also going to have an Honorable Mention Award:
1. War Room Membership (Donated by Warrior Joesph Ratliff)


I can't Thank these Warrior Contributors enough... You Guys Rock


All The Best
Paul

Re: Free Hosting for a broke and struggling newbie
 
So finally I found this thread of yours Paul. I am willing to have this golden opportunity for me since I just had a finished contract to my work online. I am currently seeking help online in terms of IM because I would like to have my own running website. I actually don't have a site yet. I haven't tried to have a site on my own eversince. This offer of yours is a golden opportunity for me and to my family to earn us a living. It is always on my mind to have a business online however I don't have enough fund to this yet. I hope you will consider me. Thanks.
Sincerely,

John

My deepest condolences to you and your family for your loss.

But, what a wonderful way to celebrate her life - by offering to help someone else move one step closer to their success.

Thank You for the kind condolence. It's been a trying time for my family. Thank You to the Warriors who've PM'ed me theirs as well. I've decided to include a War Room Membership as well.

I've received only a few replies so far, I'd really like this small jester on behalf of my Mother Bare Fruit so please if you're interested in this offer I'd like to hear from you.

I think this is a very nice way to honor your mother's memory and give back to the forum at the same time.

I would recommend changing the subject/title of the post in order to get more responses. Quite honestly, when I saw it, my first thought was that a newbie was asking about free hosts and domains. That may be what others are thinking when they see the title, as well.

Tina

KarlWarren 7th January 2010 07:20 AM

Re: Free Hosting for a broke and struggling newbie
 
Paul, sending you a PM as I'd like to offer something.

capriliz 7th January 2010 07:24 AM

Re: Free Hosting for a broke and struggling newbie
 
I have to agree with Tina. When I first read the thread title, I thought that someone was requesting assistance - not offering it.

Hi Paul,

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your mother. I lost my mother on 18th October and it is still painful to deal with.

I think your offer in her name is wonderful.

Best regards

I'm overwhelmed by the out pouring of kindness by my fellow Warriors. Thank You for all the condolences I've received. A very talented Warrior Graphics designer has sweetened the opportunity by anonymously contributing a Custom Mini-Site Package. Thank you so much.

God bless you mother.

I really need a domain and hosting, but i can't do it this way.

Sparhawke 7th January 2010 09:45 AM

Re: In Honor my Departed Mother. Free Hosting for a struggling Newbie and more
 
I would love to be considered for this, I have a few ideas already (about 20) yet simply cannot find the hosting to put it into practice and don't think I ever will at this rate...still working on various internet 2p daily clicks though to get the cash one day lol

I have been doing online forums for a long time and think it is time to break out on my own and give it a go.

Sorry about your mother :(

Even if I am not chosen, thanks for the opportunity, it comes so rarely for a lot of us :)

Paul,
What a fantastic woman your mother must have been! The fact that you are able to display such generosity it the midst of your grief speaks volumes about the boy she raised, the man he's become, and the woman who helped to make it all possible. God bless you and your family.

I would love to say "Your mom would be proud". But i will rather say, "Your mom already was proud off you for adepting this method of unconditional giving to please someone else".

I wish you skydivedad the strength to move on and the will to not forget what she meant for you and others.

So sorry about the loss of your mother.It's such a generous offer to be thinking of helping someone else while you are still dealing with the loss of your mother.You are definatly a much stroner person than most people I know, myself included.Just goes to show that there is still some good out there and hopefully one day the generosity will be turned your way.

This is a nice gesture, I hope you choose someone
that is deserving of this - perhaps we could all help.

Re: In Honor my Departed Mother. Free Hosting for a struggling Newbie and more
 
Hello Paul,

My deepest condolences to you and your family. Although I don't know you well, I share your pain. Your generosity is gracious and much appreciated.

I'm new to WF and also rather new to IM, having started on a part time basis about 6 mths ago. My main reason for going into IM is to be able to work from home and to have time with my 2 children, age 11 & 16, something which is so lacking. To make an income of about $3K from IM would be heaven for me. Being a single parent and recently divorced, my main priority is to ensure my children are properly looked after and thus IM seemed to be ideal.

My computer skills are average and only recently am able to create a simple squeeze page. This is an achievement for me as I have no knowledge about html. There is so much more to learn though and for that reason I joined WF, since membership is free. I'm not a war room member due to financial constraints. I have, however, an autoresponder account and am a member of one program which provides free hosting. I uploaded my website in December but todate have had no traffic. I'm now working on driving traffic to my site and building a list, of course using free methods.

It would be an honour to be selected and to be given the opportunity to not only learn from you but also to work with you. It would be such a privilege.

Thank you and warm regards
Janet

Sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Your offer in her honor is a a kind blessing. I'm sure she would be proud of your decision to help another person.

Paul, I've just read your FULL offer - I only skimmed it earlier.
All I can say is WOW!!! Whoever gets this is getting a
huge leg up.

skydivedad 7th January 2010 12:53 PM

Re: In Honor my Departed Mother. Free Hosting for a struggling Newbie and more
 
Thanks to All
Another Warrior who I am proud to call a personal friend as well. Glenn Leader has generously offered up a copy of Slobs 2.0 or his Artifacts Software.

As an aside I was an early purchaser of Glenn's Slobs 2.0 Product which I used to build an extensive blog Network in the Fanatsy Hockey niche of which at the time I was an early pioneer. I sold those properties and content for a nice 5 figures to a Major U.S. Digital Media Company. It would have been impossible to exploit that vertical without it! (Thanks Glenn your products are some of the finest IM tools available anywhere.) Once again I can't Thank everyone enough for your kindness and concern.

OK I've gotten some imput from a trusted Warrior friend and I'm going to keep Entries Open until Saturday evening January 9th, 2010 12PM Midnight EST (Michigan Time) I'll be submitting further enqueries to those in contention afterwards and make an announcement Wednesday the 13th.

I am so sorry for the physical loss of your mother. Your mother is forever with you and actions like these will keep you embraced by her at all times.
This is an amazing thing to do in honor of your mother. I can tell what a great mother you HAVE by the great deal of kindness that your love for her lead you to share with others.
I hope you are blessed with comfort during this time as well as success for planting a seed like this into someone else's future.

It's an absolute please Paul. You're one
of the nicest people I know, and a great

Siente Mucho Paul, Just know that God loved her so much too - God Bless you and your family. Your Mom is Smiling Upon You Now!! She gave you her good heart !!

For my request to your offer, I am in the midst of getting things off the ground-I would appreciate the gift from LauranceH as a runner up of a warrior war room membership for I have not been able to subscribe with the domains and hostings I have purchased. Just applied to get legal status in my state and I still need to buy an accounting software. This would really top off my
new year !!

But I'm really sad for your loss, hits me in the gut !! Tresa.

My deepest condolences to you and your family Paul, this is indeed tragic news. Your generosity towards those who are struggling is a testament to the quality of parenting your mother provided, and I know she would be very proud of you.

Best wishes

Hey Paul,

We've talked 3 times today on the phone.
Now I come here and this got me crying. :(

You know all I can say is I am sorry buddy.

So in Honor and Memorial I am also going to
give the scholarship winner of Paul's offer a copy
of our software Coupon Commando.

I would strongly urge anyone to tell Paul why you think
you should be selected for this very genius offer.

Take care Paul, nicely done for a Dutchmen. :)

Re: In Honor my Departed Mother. Free Hosting for a struggling Newbie and more
 
How does one even begin to respond to this?? For a newbie that is struggling with internet market and has not had regular work since September, you read this and think, WOW..what a great opportunity, but the human side of you says...I can't even begin to fathom the pain and grief you are experiencing right now. I know ( I mean I really know) that this doesn't compare, but at the end of October I put my best friend of 12 years to sleep because of declining health issues, and it still brings tears when I think of him, and that is only a dog. All I can say is I am hard working and dedicated and would love this opportunity, but most of all I send my heart felt condolences to you. It is so hard to even petition for an opportunity when you are shadowed with grief. I lost my Grandma 5 years ago and we got the call on Christmas day during dinner, and every year Christmas brings those thoughts. I pray for your strength and the healing for the grief and the pain. I would love to be picked, but you will be blessed for your generosity and sacrifice no matter who you pick.

Mike

Hi Warriors

I'm extremely touched by the many, many condolences I've received throughout the Warrior Community. They arrived by email, PM and in this thread. I am also touched by the replies I've received from entrants. Although I can't possible help everyone I want you to know that as a member of the Warrior Forum you have everything you already need to thrive as an online marketer. It's just the Road is a tad steeper without some of the resources available to those of us better off. Persistent perseverance and daily FOCUSED action will eventually be rewarded, sometimes quickly sometimes slowly but it will arrive.

Entries are ending tomorrow at midnight EST. So, please if you've thought of entering please feel free. Post here or send me a Private Message. I've read every entry to date.

All The Best
Paul

I'd like to offer my condolences as well.( I lost my mom little more than 23 years ago on Valentine's Day.)But I'm very sure that your mom knows about your beautiful gesture and is very proud of you. God bless you and yours.

avandrunen 8th January 2010 09:28 PM

Re: To Honor my Departed Mother. Free Hosting for a struggling Newbie and more
 
First and foremost my condolences Paul, I could not imagine and won't try.

I wish many friends and family to come around you in this time and hope you take time to celebrate her life.

My prayers go out to you and your family.

I would love this opportunity, the included hosting, domain and software would be a boon to anyone's business, mostly though, I am looking for someone to come along side and coach me, this alone would help me in tremendous ways.

I don't want to write out my whole history here so I will give you the readers digest version. I started into IM about a year ago with some limited success..shortly after starting, my wife and I decided to make a move to a smaller center..for the sake of our sanity. After the move I was diagnosed with clinical depression...long story I won't bore you with, but this did explain some of my motivation problems. I have started going through therapy and now that I am getting better I feel like I can once again get on track with my IM. The move also forced us into much lesser paying jobs but at least we are living by the Ocean.

I am sure there are those in much greater need than I, but if figure if I don't apply there is no opportunity at all.

Thank you for this chance Paul,

Adrian
