FlockHosting Blog

Welcome to July! (or 2012, Part 2)

So a BUSY June! A lot going on behind the scenes with not only FlockHosting but too personal life! Birthdays, graduations, mini-vacations, kittens attacking toes, and a lot of colorful fun at Color Me Rad 5k Bakersfield (going again in Fresno!) – yes it had it all! But here we are on the other side into July and so far so good!

June’s fun will continue thru July, the Fitbit giveaway, T-Shirt Design Contest, and Promo code “SUMMERTIME” will still give you a savings so that’s all well and good, but what about July? What does July get? Well glad you asked. ūüôā

As things head into the second half of the year and we push forward, I want to really keep the flow of giveaways going, and I know I could say “Free Year of Hosting” and for some, that’d be just peachy – but how can I kick it up a notch to really keep the momentum going for Customer Appreciation Month (Already being planned!), there have been kindles, iPod’s, etc. tons of give aways, but what next?

Nexus 7.

Google recently announced this badboy, and end of this month, 1 lucky customer (must have at least 1 active hosting account or domain) will have a chance to win this beautiful 7 inch tablet. Sure it’s no iPad, but it has some serious power behind it and access to Amazon, Google Play, Netflix, and more – plus the Google Chrome browser on mobile – super fast!

So how do you get your hands on this? How do you win this? Come on already Chuck SPILL IT!¬†(LOL)¬†Well its all about actual sign-ups – to have a chance to win, you must have at least 2 people sign-up for services and give your name in the comments section (Affiliate links work too – so if you don’t win, at least you get some $$$) – but for every 2 people, you get an entry! End of the month to be fair most entries win.

How do you get folks to sign-up? Not always a easy sell to folks right? Well Church Hosting counts too – its a 100% free service for churches! So if your church needs a site there’s an option — but please only if you have a need for the site, if your signing up to simply get an entry, please prayerfully consider that option as Church Hosting is a labor of love and space/resources are precious! If you plan to truly use it, then welcome aboard!

Other ideas, if you have a favorite website/blog thats having uptime issues, point them to FlockHosting! Just spread the word! Working on some promo materials and making packs to send out to folks who want em but things like Generic Business ¬†Cards without my contact info, but good promo to give to someone that you can share by simply handing but too write your name on it so you can get some promo fun! T-Shirt contest too will help make more promo goodies to wear ūüôā

So thats the July Promo to add to the list of fun from June that’s carried over, all things end August 5th (Sunday) and results will be posted and online for all goodies August 8th by 10pm – so to recap:

#1 РFibit Giveaway to keep healthy! (Customer Only)

#2 Р25% off lifetime savings with promo code SUMMERTIME (Open to the Public)

#3 РT-Shirt Design Contest for some free hosting, spending money at Amazon, donation in your name and a free t-shirt you designed! (Open to the Public)

#4 – Nexus 7 Contest for most sign-ups thru August 5th! (Customer Only)


Go July Go!
