The answer to how I accomplished this is simple. I am running a free iPod shuffle offer. BUT the member needs 4000 forum $ to get it I will maintain total responsibility for the first 2 you have to give away since it was me who promised them and I have already purchased them.
The secret is however that a brand new iPod shuffle only costs $99. I get them off eBay for half that brand new. PLUS the way a user gets a shuffle is they have to earn it. It costs 4000 forum $. The closest member only has 2261 and it took him a month to get that. See the standings here (http://www.rapfx.com/ushop.php?do=richestusers). The next 3 guys in line are myself and my mods who aren't even eligible So it would be really easy to keep this going for a full year and only give away less than 5 in that timeframe because once a member "purchases" an shuffle they get reset to $0.
The name RapFX is catchy and easily a major part of the value in this site. The members love it and, as you can see, they tell their friends! RapFX is sturring a lot of buzz in the rap forums world and people are signing up daily.
The site was completely down for nearly 2 full days going into a weekend and STILL averages over 300 uniques daily usually closer to 350-400. Proof: http://rapfx.com/trafproofjune.jpg
