Free Gift

PROMOTION ENDED JUNE 30 2009

As they say, the internet is free but unfortunately operating and maintaining a growing forum is not. Owners and enthusiast are welcome to sign up and enjoy the forum, resources, friends and camaraderie free of charge. But subscriptions are the lifeblood of the financial support necessary to sustain the growth of SLKWorld. Last month with 431 new members we had a total of 13 subscriptions new/renewed. All those are much appreciated. So how about a free gift as additional incentive to the current sponsor discounts on products as an added value for stepping up to a subscription if you are currently not a subscriber?

I have a limited supply of Mercedes Benz gift items that I will give away free with NEW subscriptions. For any Silver ANNUAL subscription you will receive an engraved Mercedes Benz Pencil, for any Gold ANNUAL subscription you will receive an engraved Mercedes Benz Coil Braided Pen, and the crème de la crème for any Platinum Annual subscription you will receive an engraved Mercedes Benz Desk Set!! You will need to email [email protected] your mailing address, note these will be shipped once every 30 days, and this offer is only valid while these items last. I currently only have a limited supply!

Thanks to everyone for making this one of the best automotive forums on the internet!!

If my maths is correct thats only about 3% of new members have subscribed?

Come on guys, if you are a new member, then you obviously get some good info or just some good banter from this site, the least you can do is put a bit back.
If the subscription is to much then give a small donation, you can see how much it costs to keep things running at the top of the main page, so a few £/$ can really make a difference.

Thats my rant finished and welcome to any of the 431 new members that I missed saying hi to, at the time you joined.

Perhaps I'm backward here, but it makes more sense to me to offer those gift items to the loyal people who have continued to financially support this forum over the years as opposed to newbies... OR at least make them available to us too with the requisite annual membership. The message to those who have gladly supported the site is either that the new contributor is more important or since we've historically been there we will continue to be, no matter what. I'm sorry Sulley, but I really this is wrong.

I can't speak for the prior owner, but since I've owned the site I haven't profited from it. Since I have a limited number of these items and would not be able to offer them on an ongoing basis, I was looking for a way to use them to generate some additional new support for the site by encouraging someone who has never had a subscription to take that step up and sign up.

In no way what so ever would I want to imply that you or any of the other loyal members are less valuable than a new subscriber and I sincerely apologize to everyone if that was the way this promotion came off.

I'm open to feedback on this idea. I can remove it all together or change it up so that it is a better offering/promotion for everyone on the forum.

Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for your continued support Sulley.

With my membership the way I saw it: This forum is entertaining and has lots of useful information. After a few weeks I decided to help support this great site and purchased a silver membership as a 'feeler'. I recommend new members who have met friends via this website (SLK meets), got useful information that saved you money, or simply enjoy the entertainment this site provides to help support the costs and purchase a membership. A Silver membership is cheap!!!

Every bit counts and its an unfair burden for Sulley to cover such a disproportionate amount of the costs. Wouldn't it be a shame if one day you woke up and this website was gone? I hope that never happens but that is an obvious reality when someone is being financially burdened and others dont step up to support those costs.

My 2 cents.

Thanks for all the feedback. This campaign will end at the end of June. There will be another one to replace this one.

Yes sir through the end of the month. New subscribers just need to send me their mailing address and at the end of the month I'll send out the gifts.

Thanks
