In efforts to get this site rolling, I figured it would be better to have a raffle and essentially pay YOU, the site users, instead of a marketing company to help spread the word.
I am offering $100 CASH to site users and NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY to win. You will earn tickets (points) based on the activities listed below. A winner will be chosen at random from all the entrants for the prize.
Up for "grabs" is a $100 CASH!
In efforts to create awareness of our site and give an incentive to place items online for sale, trade or even buy, we have created an online raffle and will will be randomly selecting a winner after 1000 points (tickets) have been issued in the next 30 days (by August 15th).
No purchase is necessary! Earn tickets (points) for every:
Item listed for sale (5 points)
Each time an item is relisted (1 point)
Make an offer on an item (1 point)
Every item you buy using the "buy out" feature (2 points)
Inviting a friend to join our site (2 points)
When a friend joins theTradingPlace.com - See "Invite a Friend" in the Members Area (5 points)
You can "Invite a friend" or check the current raffle status by going to the members area and clicking the link.
If you simply wish to purchase a ticket for the raffle you can do this as well. Tickets are $1 per entry and can be purchased through the site. Proceeds from actual raffle ticket sales will be donated to a local charity.
The raffle will end in 30 days (August 15th) IF I have at least 1000 tickets in the drawing. If I have at least 1500 tickets on August 15th, a random winner will be chosen for the prize.
