I received some very nice emails in response, some people actually thanked me for sending the book. I say that in almost a surprised statement because there was only a handful out of a lot, which I wasn’t expecting so I was pleasantly surprised to receive any thank you note all. But watching, participating and subscribing was enough for me to be grateful for everyone that showed their support (or interest in a free book :)).
I did express my frustration at people who abuse your time in a post called cold calls, but I didn’t experience any of that regarding this topic and I very much appreciate that as well.
So being that this was my first time making such an offer and not being set up with an automated service, there were some bumps in the road. Some people that made comments, who should have gotten a book didn’t have to leave their email address to make that comment, which was my fault in not knowing that so I wasn’t able to send them a book without their email information. If you are one of those people please send me an email to my personal email account, I’ll check your name with the name registered for the comment and send your book right away.
The other issue I ran into was not being clear that a ‘comment’ was necessary to enter the draw, so tons of people clicked on the ‘free book’ tab on the website, which subscribed them to the newsletter but was in a different location as to where I was hoping to direct people. Those that clicked on the ‘free book’ within the given contest time frame, received a Detoxify Yourself ebook as well. In this case, you needed to leave you email address to subscribe so I was able to send out books to those people.
I hope all of that wasn’t confusing, it’s not necessary to understand what happen, I simply wanted to explain for those that are interested. The bottom line is, for those that commented in the time frame that the offer was available (Oct 19th, before 12 noon), please send me an email letting me know you commented and would like a book; now that I have your email address, I’ll be able to send you one. (email@example.com)
I know not everyone reads these posts, unfortunately this is the only way to announce that some people that entered the draw can still receive a free ebook. I suppose this situation would be incentive to read more posts :) like, the people’s protein for example where I offer 6 months of FREE protein.
That’ll be the end of my explanation, once again, thank you all so much for particiapating and showing your interest in Detoxify yourself. Those short notes you send, mean everything to me and are the reason I keep moving forward with teaching others how to Detoxify Yourself!
