Extended Promo: For REW Conference Attendees only
A few weeks ago I ran a promotion for REW customers that offered 1200 hours (design, programming and writing time combined) at a discount of 25% off of our regular rate. I figured that we would sell out July's excess inventory in 5-7 days, and we ended up selling out in less than 36 hours (Thanks everyone for your purchases)
Due to the sellout, many REW customers who wanted to get in on the action missed out as it was first come first served and there was way more interest than there were hours available. Holly and I got to talking and our next big event is the REW Conference in September which will be once again taking up a lot of my time and there will likely be excess inventory available. We also would really love to see as many REW customers attend as possible (Although there are only 200 tickets available) so here's the deal.
For REW conference attendees only: I will make additional writing, design and programming hours (500 hours each) available at the promo rate (25% off) for any REW customer attending the September conference.
Response time is critical - These discounted hours sold out VERY quickly last time and many who placed there order the same day missed out due to just a one day delay in submitting their paperwork. Also REW conference attendance is limited to only 200 tickets so you will want to ensure you grab yours before they are sold out as well (They are pre-requisite to purchasing these hours.
The rules: (Gotta post em every time - dang rules)
#1: You must have already purchased your ticket to the REW conference in September. You can do so by downloading this form and faxing it back to 250-753-7209. Please remember, the full purchase price of your conference ticket is also credited to your account for use against future work, so the ticket itself, meals, and entertainment actually don't cost you anything, you just have to get here.
#2: You must actually attend - you can't just buy a ticket to access the promo hours. This is not about selling tickets (We actually don't profit from this conference at all as the full ticket sales are credited back to our customers) - this is about getting our customers here. We know you will benefit greatly from this opportunity to learn, network, meet the team etc - I want to have a successful first conference and I can't think of a better way to do it than by having our long standing clients as the largest portion of attendees. If you purchase a ticket and then gain access the promo hours for purchase, use those hours and fail to attend, those hours will be considered billable at our full rate.
#3: Limit 50 hours per category per customer - Last time we sold out so fast as so many of our great customers recognized the value in the promo and less than 20 of them ended up purchasing the majority of the available hours - I want to make sure everyone has a fair chance to get in on the act. It is still first come first served so you still want to act quickly - but at least this way you have a shot.
Other things to consider (For all conference attendees)
- Travel is less expensive (Generally) the further back you book your flights.
- You will need to book your flights (To Vancouver, BC Airport) early to ensure those flights are available.
- Reserved rooms (For preferred hotels) are also on a first come first served basis. .
Why else would want to show up?
There are some other benefits to consider.
- The entire trip including the conference is a writeoff (How many vacations do you actually get to write off per year?)
- You will be visiting one of the most beautiful places in one of the best countries on earth.
- You can bring your wife / husband rent them a car, have them drive up to Victoria for the day and they will love you for ever.
- Oh yeah and let's not forget you will be learning insider tips and closely guarded member secrets on how to drive traffic to your website, and convert it when it gets there. (You don't think we post all of our great stuff on the public boards do ya?
Seriously guys - I really wish I didn't feel the need to sell you on all the benefits this will have on your lead volume, conversion and networking - but I do understand, it's shorter notice than most would like AND we do happen to be way up here in Canada. Trust me when I tell you it will be the most beneficial 2 days off from the grind that you ever spend.
