PostSubject: Referral Contest I'd like to Start   Fri May 03, 2013 9:38 am

Hello Folks,

So I have been spending a pretty decent amount of time reading about promotion tactics and actually advertising around the web to try to get new members. I think I definitely got this place a lot of views in the past week but that doesn't really count for tons. I have videos on Youtube that I am using to advertise that clock up a ton of views but I thought this could be more fun.

I would like to start a contest here. The first one to recruit five members here I will get them some kind of prize. I know there is a lot of gamers here and a Steam game would probably be the easiest. I am willing to spend up to $30 on something on Steam, or if you want something shipped $20 because shipping is expensive yo. Or in alternative I could send you something you might find interesting like a sort of homemade BYD care-package and I could give you a Deer Hunters shirt and I'll make it awesome and full of love.

Of the members you recruit I would like at least most of the five to be posting and we seem to have at least one poster that has a high contribution potential so I know you didn't just make five alternate accounts and are messing with me. Not saying you will do this but the milkman is ever vigilant, I can see your email address. Starting now

Look forward to it!

Do it up- make sure they let you know so you know that you're being successful

I was thinking of paying externally for advertising but I feel like rewarding you guys for word of mouth is more beneficial for numerous reasons. If we can have some internal fun at the same time as getting new members that is a win for everyone

Word of mouth is powerful if you send chat messages you'd be surprised

Remember when we all used to add each other on Facebook? Whenever I upload a new display picture its usually guys from here commenting lol

I did the lazy approach of just posting a link and a few words on facebook. I have like 200 or so friends, but only 30 who would probably read the status. And half of those are probably forum goers, or alumni.

Perhaps a better idea is for me to offer smaller rewards for members that are able to get one active member to join

I'm thinking one day I'm just going to get mildly drunk to get the outgoingness flowing through me and just start chats with as many people as I can on Facebook of course what are you crazy? We'll see if old BYD still has the salesman blood flowing. I had my friend Teymoor join yesterday and of course he hasn't logged in yet lol

But yeah if you get that done I'll make note of it for sure

Palpi was always pretty cool. I don't quite remember which Lor was the problem. Probably when all of you joined at once and started being silly. By the way, how did all of you guys find the site anyways? I feel like you found it then your band all joined

Lor do you post any Youtube videos of your concerts or songs or anything? Perhaps you can link us here in the description

In the past someone was really successful at bringing at least 3/4 active members from Metal Thrones. I think it was Axe. If any of you use other forums, you know what to do, byd will remember it

Let me know how that goes. If you need bargaining leverage tell him he can advertise his band here whenever
