    We offer a contest to win free hosting for a year. We always are running this contest. We do not run the contest to acquire new customers or gain contact information; we just run the contest to give people free hosting

    Do you find that you have gained more customers from this promotion?

    In addition, can you provide a little more detail:
    how often you draw the prise, who can enter, etc....


    Thanks

    We offer something every month. These past two months it was a 1 new iPAQ and 1 new XBOX (2 customers/ both wanted the iPAQ). This month it's a new Dell Laptop and 1 of 3 Full Year Platinum accounts (if already purchased then refunded).

    No, not really. Most of our customers are from referals not from our advertising or the contests. In reality, we do not even get that many signups for the contest (probably because we do not promote it except for on our website).

    We draw the prize every 6 months and the entrant will win 1 year of free hosting. If they are a current client we refund them the amount of the plan offered in the contest.

    Quoted from our website:

    4. ELIGIBILITY: Contest is not open to employees of Xerocity.com or their immediate family members, subsidiary or affiliated company, licensee, advertising or promotional agency, web hosting competitors or their employees or their employees immediate family members, or our sponsors. Current Xerocity.com customers ARE eligible. Contest is sponsored by Xerocity.com. Void where prohibited or restricted.

    To see all of the details on how our contest is run visit: http://www.xerocity.com/contests
