The Wrap-up!

fh-giftAnd the winners are:

  • Brenten G. wins a ASUS C200MA-DS01 Chromebook
  • Mike S. wins a Chromecast
  • Gordon D. wins a Chromecast

Which means we had 1 leftover from each event, I still have a Chromecast in reserve & we didn’t see the final spot for the Founders Club taken – but never fear! More fun things are coming with a new attempt at Crowd Funding for Church Hosting & our usual fun with customer appreciation, and other goodies I have floating around in my head 🙂

Thanks to all our new founders & Brenten, Mike and Gordon for having some fun on Tax Day with Me!

June Promotional Fun!

So June is here! (Well officially tomorrow, but I’m anxious for its arrival!)

This month some fun promotions so getting straight to it:

#1 A Fit Summer!

This month every person you recommend to FlockHosting and signs up even for Church Hosting (a free service for churches!) gets you an entry (Have them give your name in notes at signup), every time you tag FlockHosting on Facebook or Twitter in suggesting it to someone for hosting their website gets you an entry, if you sign-up for the community and interact, each post gets you an entry!

Okay, lots of entry talk, but for what! Two lucky customers will pick up a FitBit (www.fitbit.com) – this is a great tool for keeping track of your steps, your distance, and for me has been a great motivator for getting healthier as I do spend a LARGE part of my day sitting still, but since getting mine early last month, I’ve logged 86.65 miles of walking! Lost 6lbs and has motivated me to keep busy even changing my office up to make it more standing and moving vs. sitting! So I want to share the fun with customers!

Now you may not be a health junkie but this makes a fun gift to give to someone in your life maybe that would benefit from the system & the site for getting into shape! This starts Today, and runs thru the end of June!

 

#2 Promo Codes

One thing folks asked for were more promotions, sure $5 a month with no long-term contract is great, but money these days is tight and have to stretch that dollar a step further! So today the public code is as follows:

SUMMERTIME – What this gets you is 25% off when you pre-purchase for 3 months or more, up to 1 year, you can save 25% off, now this isn’t a one shot deal, this is reoccurring, so every 3 months you still save 25%  its your locked in price for the life of your account.

Share this with friends and family, however I did say codes, a second one is coming to the newsletter, and a third to the hidden customer area on the community forums, for you to share not on coupon sites, but with friends/family or yourself with discounts up to 50% on a year, so stay tuned on those, codes will be released in the newsletter tomorrow and on the forums later tonight.
