    New Promotion/Give-away ideas?
    Hi all, I was thinking of bringing in new customers by offering a free "Scarface Collectible Bust" by "Mezco toys" as seen Here

    I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on what would qualify for this freebee, should I make is a "Sign up for newsletter and enter for a chance to win..." or a, "Buy such n such amount and get this" or any other suggestions..




    also, what are the best methods to get this giveaway noticed by the public.?


    thanks again for any help and suggestions.

    I think having them sign-up for the newsletter for a chance to win is a nice way to build up your mailing list.

    I hate it that this comes out as a blaitent plug for my services, but I have 2 games on my site that were designed for contests/giveaways. Check out Recycled Talent in my signature.

    This may just be urban myth, but there are laws regarding illegal lotteries. Usually the way around it is to offer an alternative means of entering in the drawing (hand writing on 3x5" index cards being common), and honoring the alternative if it happens to win. Just FYI.

    Who are you targeting with this freebie? I hope this doesn't come across wrong but I can't say that I would want one of those - it wouldn't make me want to sign up. Maybe it would appeal to guys but if you are also targeting women also you may want to pick something that would appeal to everyone. Just my opinion.

    very good point, its more of a free gift, most gifts are not for the purchaser but for some1 else,

    everyone knows SOMEBODY that would want a gangsta ss tony montana bust...

    but good point, i'll look in my inventory for something more unisex,

    i figured a collectible would make a great gift, even for those not into cinema, what would you suggest zimmy? it was either tony montana, or a 10 pack of "Spiffers" (Manucure pens as seen Here )

    Yeah...well...I guess there's always Ebay!

    Personally I'd rather have the Spiffers but that may not appeal to everyone - not exactly unisex.

    Are those the only 3 things to chose from?
