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

98 replies
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

        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.

        I'm going to have to echo the condolences.

        My grandfather died the week before christmas. It's not easy, especially to see my grandmother trying to stay strong throughout it.

        This is a good thing you're doing and I hope you're able to make a difference in a struggling IMers career.

        Take care

    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

    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

        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.

    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

        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.

              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.

                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.

    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,

      Therefore, I have PM'd you offering my FREE services which I hope will help and inspire both you and your struggling newbie winner.

      Hi Paul,

      I need to get in touch with you, but I don't have enough posts (yet) to PM you directly. Could you send me a PM with an email address? Thanks!!

      Condolences and God bless you and your family, Paul, as you wade through your emotions and the empty feelings of being without your Mom now. One bright thought is that she can watch over you from heaven -- a prime spot indeed

      Very Best Regards,

          I am so sorry for your loss! Losing your mother is a very hard thing to go through. I also lost my mom and grandmother in 2009 as well as some other family and friends. Definitely a rough year. I admire what you are doing in remembrance of your mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Hi Paul,

    This is very generous of you to offer as a tribute to your mother. You say she was a very giving person, and it's clear she was, because of how giving you are as a person. Your life, to be honest with you, is the best possible tribute to your mom that anyone could imagine, and that is an exemplary tribute.

    As much as the generous contributions you and others are offering are worth, the one no one should diminish the importance and value of is your coaching.

    I know from personal experience how invaluable that is, because you've done wonders to get me thinking SEO and backlinks, not to mention a site worth linking to!

    The true value of what you're offering of course is beyond words, and yet tangibly it's easily five figures.

    You have a pure heart, and generous spirit..... because your mom was such a good "coach" herself - in how she raised you.

    Warmly,
    Dan

    Sorry to hear about your mom but i bet she must be very proud of you. I can understand your loss and pain. My deepest sympathies for the trajic loss..

    I don't know if this is allowed or not, but I would like to nominate tausif (he made a post few blocks above) for this. I have known this guy for a long time and whatever he said in the post is very much true. He is a very hardworking guy and this offer may help him kickstart his IM career.

    Once again sorry to hear about your mom..

    Hi Paul,

    My condolences to you and your family. It's really hard to part with someone we love so dearly. Nevertheless, I'm sure your mom is proud of you especially that you've put the idea of 'paying it forward' into practice.

    I'm also a mom trying to break into IM, a newbie as you call it. I have always been a work-at-home mom and it has been a rollercoaster ride for me. I work as a freelance web content writer, but am looking at moving on to the next step as an internet marketer. I do have my own hosting account and domain name which I bought last year on an impulse but haven't gotten to do anything with it yet.

    I want to jumpstart my career in IM this year but I feel that someone else deserves your offer as I already have a hosting account. I just have to spend time reading through all the helpful posts in this forum to pave my own road to success in IM.

    Kudos to whoever gets this special offer and I hope you really work hard towards making yourself successful in memory of Paul's mom. Remember to pay it forward once you get there.

      Hi Warriors
      I'm ready to make a decision and announce the recipients of these awards. I'd really like to Thank each and every Warrior Newbie who applied and I would especially like to Thank all the Warriors who also contributed to this scholarship. You guys are amazing and giving people, just goes to show you it's the Warriors who make this a very special place. I'm grateful for the opportunity to be a Member here. I can never repay the kindness I've received here.

      I am going to make this a yearly scholarship and plan on announcing next years recipients on Christmas day, maybe in a small way that will take some of the sting I'm sure I'll feel every year on Christmas day, the anniversary of my Mothers Passing. May she rest in peace...

      I'm not sure if I should announce the recipients here in this thread or start an new thread? Any input on this would be appreciated.
      Once Again on behalf of myself and my family...
      Thank You All

    First and foremost, I would like to give my deepest condolences sir. I do not know you but it must feel so bad losing a mother. I haven't experienced it myself, however, I know I would ball 'till my eyes pop out if it ever happend. So may God bless you and your family, and may he guide you through a terrible time in your life. My prayers are to you and your family...

    Second, as for the contest is concerned, I am a struggling, broke newbie. I know it may be too late, but I thought I would let you know why, had I posted in time, you should mentor and coach me:

    I am a newbie that has gone through information overload one too many times. I have been trying and trying to figure out how to make a significant amount of money online. I will admit, at first I thought internet marketing was a quick rich scheme, but after reading through soooo maaaannnnny products, I found that it is a real job. The only difference is less hours per work week, no alarms, no BOSS, and still, A FATTER CHECK. So, I found that reading is not going to get me anywhere. A plan of action is what I needed. So here is my plan of action:

    -Get into an IM forum and learn (which im doing right now. THANKS WARRIORFORUM!)
    -apply the techniques ive learned through products ive purchased and from here to build a list of prospects.
    -find a lucrative product that truly helps beginners like me in the IM world and promote it to build capital.
    -create my own product.
    -find partners and affiliates for promoting my product.
    -launch product
    -watch money fly in
    -repeat.

    That is my game plan. If anyone can tell me how to tweak that, please do so and thanks in advanced. Anyways, as you can see I have a plan. So why would I need what your offering, well.. its because I am broke. I do have JOB, but I have bills too, which offset my income. Since I first heard of internet marketing, I would buy a product with extra money I can come up with, then I would get stopped because I have no capital. Mainly, the money to invest in a business (hosting, autoresponders, domains, etc.). Now, don't get me wrong, im not trying to build a business with zero investment. I am a business major and know that it takes money to make money.

    So you may ask what would I do with what you're offering. Well, I would use the autoresponder to build a list. Of course, I would use the hosting to build lead capture pages and learn how to make a website and actually learn to use a web host. I would use the membership to this forum for building my status as an IM. Now I don't know anything really about the products included, but Im pretty sure it would be to my advantage as it has been in your early years. The MEMBERSHIP START-UP Kit would be perfect, as that is actually the product I want to create. As you can see, your offerings would be of tremendous help. Also, if I were to show you my honest efforts in building a business online, and agreed to partner with you, would be such an honor. I know it would drastically minimize the learning curve.

    So there it is. Thats why I think I should be the one getting your one-of-a-kind package. I don't think I will since I am late in submitting an entry, however I still have hope because someone may read this message and find something to help them with.

    So again, my condolences to you, Paul, and your family. Goodluck in your search for your newbie.

    Sincerely,

    Arleigh Cortez

    I would also like to offer my condolances, 2 days before christmas last year i was at my best freinds mothers funeral who passed away from cancer,

    I didnt really know her mother that well but it seemed to me that all i had to was hug her, our freindship since then has gotten so much tigther and is purley plutonic.

    I carnt imagine the pain your going through, i know what she went through,

    And this offer you have made is amazing for a struggling noobie, and it is probably the kindest gesture ive seen on this forum since i become a warrior.

    You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers,

    Mikey

      I'd like to announce the recipients at this time. It was a difficult decision to make but I received great counsel from Warriors Karl Warren, Glenn Leader, Blase Desmarais, Laurenceh, WD Mino, Jean Baird, WillDL, Joesph Ratliff and many others. God Bless and Thank You. Thank You to all the Warriors who made a condolence.

      Ultimately the decision was mine to make, it was a struggle as in my heart I want to see each and everyone that applied achieve incredible success. Thank you all so much for taking the time to share with me the current circumstances and your struggles with this crazy business. I wish I had the resources... Well, anyway without further ado.

    Paul,

    Today is my first day on WARRIOR and I have been finding my way around here and ran across your thread. I know that your offer has expired and as much as this would have been the gift I would have embraced, I do believe I found you to share a Prayer someone had given to me when I lost my Dear Father 8 years ago. I, myself, read it often and it does bring me comfort, I hope it does the same for you:

    Safely Home

    I am home in heaven, dear ones;
    Oh so happy and so bright!
    There is perfect joy and beauty
    In this everlasting light.
    All the pain and grief is over,
    Every restless tossing passed;
    I am now at peace forever,
    Safely home in heaven at last.
    Did you wonder how I so calmly
    Trod the valley of the shade?
    Oh, but Jesus' love illumined
    Every dark and fearful glade.
    And he came himself to meet me
    In that way so hard to tread;
    And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
    Could I have one doubt or dread?
    Then you must not grieve so sorely,
    For I love you dearly still;
    Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
    Pray to trust our Father's will.
    There is work still waiting for you,
    So you must not idly stand;
    Do it now, while life remains,
    You shall rest in Jesus' land.
    When that work is all completed,
    He will gently call you home;
    Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
    Oh, the joy to see you come!

      Hi Warriors

      Thanks once again to all.... I'm awaiting on a reply from admin on how to go about a multi purchase of War Room Memberships. Anyone know what that process would be?

      I had a chance to speak personally with Mike Downs the Main recipient and I couldn't be more pleased he presents himself as a person who is eager to learn and willing to be coached.

      I want to make sure we have all the bases covered if you're a contributor please contact me so we can make arrangements to distribute the awards. I've received many additional PM's from Well Wishers and I really appreciate it. Want everyone to know your kindness has made all the difference to me. Thank You

    Hello Paul,
    The gift you have given in your mother's memory not only honors her, but it is a way to share the values and intangible gifts that defined her with others you come in contact with. I sincerely hope that the recipients of these scholarships will pass what they have learned along to others. As other warriors expanded your vision by contributing to your offer, they too have honored her.

    I wish I had come across your thread before the contest ended. Count me in for a contribution next year. It will allow me to honor my mother too, who demonstrated with her life that it is more blessed to give than to receive.

    You have my deepest condolences. I believe that your project will give you some comfort during this difficult time.
