Default FREE LAPTOP SWEEPSTAKES - NO PURCHASE NECESSARY!

WARRIOR SWEEPSTAKES to WIN A FREE

ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP!


SUBSCRIBE FREE
ENTER HERE:


WHAT IS IT?

A Marketing Tips Video Delivered Daily Via Email.

I talk about the new SecretMarketingWeapons.com site here:



No Purchase Necessary!


Just a FREE VIDEO NEWSLETTER and a chance to WIN A FREE LAPTOP!



HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
$0 - FREE TO sign up

WILL YOU SELL OR SHARE MY INFORMATION?
Absolutely NOT. I respect your privacy. I won't rent, sell or share your information with anyone. I may suggest someone to you in the future that you may have interest in, but that email would be up front and come direct from me. No one will ever get your information.

DO I HAVE TO CLICK LINKS OR FILL OUT SURVEYS?
No, nothing like that at all. Just stay a subscriber of the email, watch the videos if you like and you are entered.


IS THERE A "One-Time Offer" (OTO) WHEN I SUBSCRIBE?
No, you sign up, confirm and that's it! Most marketers call it "stupid"...I call it providing "value"

WILL WE GET AFFILIATE AND SALES OFFERS EVERY DAY?
NO, Just a quality marketing tip, strategy or tactic each and every day. About one minute of your time by video each day. "No affiliates", no "buy this or that", no "check this out". One video per week will remind you to check out the resources page where you can go buy something and may mention a special, but that is once per week and no more than a few seconds of time.

IS THERE AN AFFILIATE PROGRAM?
Since this is a free video subscription, with no OTO and no sales pitches...there is nothing for you to get a commission on. However we do encourage you to share with your friends simply because of the value and it increases the speed you are eligible to win a prize.

HOW DO I GET THE FREE LAPTOP?
I am running a contest to get 1000 people as quickly as possible onto the list. Once 1000 people are subscribed, I will randomly select one person as the winner. So just by subscribing, you are entered to win! Tell a friend, because the sooner we get to 1000 subscribers, the sooner I select the winner!

HOW MANY LAPTOPS ARE BEING GIVEN AWAY?
Right now, just this one. Once this contest is over, we will hold another and have a new prize, maybe a laptop, maybe something else. Feel free to make a suggestion.

WHAT TYPE OF LAPTOP IS IT?
A brand new, sealed, in the box ACER ASPIRE. Purchased Summer 2011. It has all the goodies like: Windows® 7 Home Premium/64-bit version |Dual-Core 1.60GHz Processor |2GB RAM |250GB hard drive | 15.6" HD Widescreen CineCrystal™ Display |Dual Layer DVD Writer (8x±RW-DL) |webcam |multi-gesture touchpad |802.11b/g/n WLAN |gigabit LAN |HDMI™ |2-in-1 card reader (SD & MMC)

WHAT ARE THE RULES AND CONDITIONS?
Go here for sweepstakes terms and conditions: Secret Marketing Weapons Minute » A New Guerrilla Marketing Strategy Daily » Win A Free Laptop!

WHO ARE YOU?
I have been doing marketing and training people in marketing since before there was a world wide web. For many years I taught SEO and was a pioneer in doing WEBINARS back in 1999-2002. Even then I CHARGED for webinars, even though most people struggled to figure out where to plug in their speakers to hear them!

Looks great Mo,

Are you close to the 1000 members yet?

Your website shows that you first published the competition video on your website 78 days ago and has Facebook comments from the end of December.

Must be getting close.

Anyway, have been enjoying the videos on your website so far.

I don't think so he really give you free Laptops, He just increasing his subscriber for his site. Think at your on i don't know where he live and he don't know what my perfect location. Fake marketing in my point of view but if anyone wants to use his/her luck then use it.

Hey guys, the OP is using a valid list building approach and even though it's been a few months, I wouldn't worry about his credibility (him giving away a laptop) just yet.

Look at this thread... There are 34 posts so far (35 counting mine) and he made two of those posts.

So, that means 32 people have registered for his list (in theory), and likely more than a few signed up using multiple email addresses, but that still doesn't put this guy anywhere near 1000 people on his list if he is only using this thread to build that list.

Everyone should really take his thread as a learning tool...

His approach to building this list is pretty ok. He is building a list of freebie seekers (free laptop) from a location (WF) that is known to have an abundance of IM related buyers.

[Theoretically] he is betting that out of 1000 valid subscribers, if only 100 of the 1000 people on his list purchases something from him once per month on average (a $10 product for example), then he will make an average of $1,000 per month, month after month, which more than off-sets the cost of the laptop.

So, we all "get it" - Right? This is why we build lists! List = Money when you build a relationship and offer value.

Now, what can we tell that he is doing that he should probably work on?

Communication (in this forum it is vital).

If he were communicating on this thread a few things would happen.

[1] The thread would land on top of the forum more often, which means more people would see it.

[2] He could be giving daily totals of the number on the list, and that would make you want to come back to his thread every day... Which leads to higher post counts, and then of course more eyes on his offer.

What more could he do? Plenty!

He could offer additional incentives for people already on his list to tell others.

From what I see above, he simply says "tell your friends"... Good for him, but from your perspective, you likely do not want the added competition even though you know the contest doesn't end until he reaches 1000 subscribers.

So, an incentive for someone who is already subscribed would give momentum. For example, I'll bet that if you earned an extra entry in the contest for every 3 people you got to sign-up under you, that you would actively build his list for him... After all, more entries = more/better odds of you winning.

See?

Overall this guy has a solid foundation, he just (so far) dropped the ball.

Any of you guys who do not have a list could take this idea and tweak it, give it lots of personal attention, and you'll have a big list in a very short period of time.

OP - Didn't mean to jack your thread, I just seen that you have only posted on it once since your initial post, so I thought your readers could learn a bit while they are waiting.

What a great way to help fellow marketers expand their knowledge, offer the incentive of possibly winning a lap top, and also building up your list! I say win win situation, highly effective indeed.

And I am sure some warriors will again signup without actually looking at this post and realizing that the contest was open a year ago and not now.

This contest was a year ago. I can recall reading it. I'm waiting to know the winner. I hope the winner will post here. :-)
