Customer Appreciation ā€” Week 4 (Day 4)

So the adventure continues! I have a busy week ahead next week building out all the final goodies from this week! I am prepping of course for my 5k on Saturday so been getting some additional prep in and of course packing as its out of town – but you’ll start to see more and more of the goodies (New Webmail & Resources) coming up and online this next week as I’m back to a normal schedule again!

Day 4! We made it! Had a lot of fun, and still more folks sent me a note in disbelief about how one could just give away free hosting like that, well its my honor to do so! I am truly happy to be able to bless customers with goodies – be it add-ons of additional resources, free hosting or a fun gadget like oh I don’t know a Kindle Paperwhite with a $25 Amazon Gift Card. I mean just a thought šŸ™‚

So here’s how you can get your hands on one of Amazon’s latest Kindle lines and some spending money… but first a fair note – this is still a pre-order item, As it stands current ship date is not till October 22nd, so please know this is a prize that will also test your patience šŸ™‚ BUT onto the how you get this…

THE FINE PRINT

As per the giveaways this month, this is for FlockHosters Only! How do you get a chance to win? Why share your favorite books of course! Wait no… that wasn’t it… Share your favoriteĀ recipes? Oh come now this must be clever! What would justify a giveaway that as you have sene from this week alone could get well… crazy šŸ™‚

Ah I have it! If this was something you could only have to give away, who would you gift it to and why? For instance:

As much as I do want this handy dandy little Kindle, I do have my original and it still serves me well šŸ™‚ but if I got it as a gift, I’d give it to my mom, she loves reading she has a kindle fire, but long-time reading (as she tends to do!) isn’t as battery efficient as this one is supposed to be + its backlit so no more pesky book lights to position and try to fidget with – it would simply work! She’d be a happy reader!

And since this is a giveaway a tad later in the afternoon – this one will be open thru Sunday and Close 1AM on Monday Morning – winner will be announced likely Monday Mid-Day after I’m back and situated – probably in Video Form.Ā Entries areĀ preferredĀ in the comments here, but if you areĀ unfamiliarĀ with this system, email, videos, IM’s, carrierĀ pigeons, smoke signals (must live within 10 miles of my house) šŸ™‚ send em in!Ā 

So there you have it, take a minute and think about it – as much as you may want this, or love this, but who would love it even more as aĀ surpriseĀ gift! And based upon the last give away of hosting, who knows how crazy… or how on-par this will be šŸ™‚ Join in the fun and you never know how big the blessing will be!

 

But wait… there’s more…

What’s the fun in a giveaway that a single person wins? Yesterday I did announce the migration of all accounts to the newest package sizes and offerings that new customers benefit from – what else could one add? Well you all will now be on the $5/$10 packages listed on Flockhosting so you get more goodies + additional storage and bandwidth, that sounds good right?

Well what if those standard packages got an upgrade? Oh yes, I’m doing it again – as of October 1, 2012 – The $5 and $10 package sizes go up! A new standard for all hosted accounts! No requests for upgrades, no special coupon codes – more.

  • $5 Package
    • 1GB -> 1.5GB (You’ll have 2GB!) Storage
    • 20GB -> 30GB (You’ll have 31GB!) Bandwidth
  • $10 Package
    • 2GB -> 2.5GB (You’ll have 3GB!) Storage
    • 20GB -> 30GB (You’ll have 31GB!) Bandwidth

So there you have it! Something more and as an active customer during this Customer Appreciation Month, those extras are specific to your accounts! Sets you apart from new accounts coming in, you’ll have that little bit more always attached to your account! But please be patient with Me on these upgrades, still a lot of work ahead of me to get things all together and in place! If you are in dire need of the additional resources open a ticket and I’ll assist on a case by case basis – but I hope by October’s end to have everyone all patched up and resourced up!

Some users I’ll note now will be needing to re-located to a new server to ensure resources are not stretched too thin, but I’ll be working on any migrations to ensure they are as painless as possible! So keep an eye here on the blog as things progress!

Happy Day 4!

 

A Crazy October!

So October’s specials were not what I had hoped, too many misc. server issues seemed to get in the way, but I want to give things one last chance to really be crazy!

For the next Week (ends Tuesday 11/10) you can use the discount code GETCRAZY on any current package (includes Email) to save 25% off the package when you pay for 1 year in advance (or two) – PLUS your domain is free!

For those just looking for some savings, across all packages purchased for 6 months, you will see a FREE domain as well. So something hopefully for everyone!

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Upgrades, Audits, Crazy!

Well it’s nearly that time again! Crazy October is right around the corner! Specials are going to be coming to the second full week of October (Monday the 13th) as well as a promotion to tie into the usual Crazy October specials!

A new site look and feel is underway, and it’s coming along quite nicely (if I do say so myself) but I am actively working to get some of the front-end of FlockHosting caught up as my primary goal has been the backend which has been coming along nicely, new enhacements are working nicely, and new mail options are nearly out of the testing phase – special thanks to testers!

I had hoped to have a newsletter out, but the joys of working everywhere lately, busy, which is good, but sometimes time isn’t always available, spent nearly 12 hours sleeping Sunday->Monday, so a nice catch up – but it’s time for some FH TLC! So stay tuned here for more! Off to update the site’s backend in prep for the upcoming changes, so things may be a little out of sorts for a bit.

New Customer Portal, New Special

Earlier this evening the newsletter went out giving some details of the latest things happening here at FlockHosting, if you missed it, it’ll be posted after the break – but the two big things are the new Customer Portal & The upcoming Specials.

In 1 week (10/10/07) – new specials will be posted each day till the end of the month (excluding weekends) – the special is limited to the day, and each will be a one day deal, fear not current customers, each day will offer two specials of which you can take advantage of, one will be a optional upgrade for your current package, the other a new package for a new hosting project – so stick around, each day they will be posted here.

If you missed the newsletter click the link below and it will be displayed – stay tuned for more updates!
