    Photorater.org - 1,000 SIGNUP to recieve free HP PAVILION laptop. Read for more info

    www.Photorater.org Grand Opening!

    Photorater.org is offering a BRAND NEW HP Pavilion DV1133wm-b laptop for the 1,000 sign-up at our website.

    This is not an advertisement like "Win a free IPOD" or "Win a free laptop". This laptop is sitting in my office ready to be sent to the 1,000 person to sign-up to our website.

    I will personally contact the person via telephone once we have reached 1,000 members.

    You can see pictures taken of the laptop at:
    http://www.photorater.org/1000signup

    The laptop was taken out of the box only for pictures. The laptop has been resealed in its original box ready to be sent.

    If you have any questions, you can email me at [email protected].

    What a great gift.
    Q: Are 1000 free users really worth the price?

    Jasyson, is it:

    - the 1000th sign up will get the prize OR
    - one of the first 1000 accounts will get the prize?

    In other words, is there going to be a random draw when you hit 1000 users or are you going to award this prize to the 1000th registered account?

    Best,

    I think a random draw would be better because you'd attract a lot more people. People wont sign up if they know they are only the 3rd person to sign up.

    'This laptop is sitting in my office ready to be sent to the 1,000 person to sign-up to our website.' - From that line surely he means the 1000th user to signs up gets the laptop?

    Your scrkpt doesn't work too well for me.

    I've been planning on a similar contest like this for one of my more popular sites. Though my target is a lot more than 1,000 users. One of the main issues, is to not disclose your stats and member base when you're holding a contest such as this. I think you should also define the contest rules if you havent already done so. Ex: Each household may signup for only one account or similar.

    Good luck in reaching your target user base!

    Definitely make it a random drawing from the 1000 members and make it very clear. I am under the distinct impression that the 1,000th member to join will win, in which case you'll just get slammed with signups at 999, if you ever get there.

    Yeah, that is a lot better idea. I will make it as follows:

    - When I reach 1,000 members I will have a random drawing for the laptop.
    - One signup per household
    - No age rules
    - User must have a picture of themselves posted, not just an account signed up.

    Thanks guys for the info. The user base is jumping pretty rapidly.

    To add to this, I believe im going to do this for each 1,000 signup.

    Therefore like this.
    1,000 members
    2,000 members
    3,000 members and so on...

    I will probably switch it up because I have a few items in the office that would be good for drawings.

    I currently have a HP laptop, Sony DVD camcorder, a few IPODS, and a few other different electronics.

    Well, good luck everyone, and thank you for signing up!
