We’re all in this together, so it’s our combined promotional efforts that will make success for all of us. I’m sure there’s going to be quite a number of folks who rock this. I have a little surprise for whoever reaches numero uno on the leader board.
Because our event is only 12 days long we really have to get the word out fast and furiously and we need you to do your very best.
Contributing Partners are responsible for promoting the Giveaway via your social outlets and mailing lists at least three (3) times: 1 pre-event, 1 launch day and 1 last event day. One contact must be a solo email. Of course, you’re encouraged to share the Giveaway even more, so we can find more hidden wealth for solopreneurs and quickly grow your list.
Promotional Partners are responsible for promoting the Giveaway via your social outlets, forums, and advertising systems, including 1 launch day and last day announcement. You receive a text or small graphic link back to their site at the bottom of the page.
We got you covered! To make this super easy and fun, we took care of all the promotion copy- letters, tweets, even an article to share. All you have to do is cut & past, use your unique link and hit the send button, baby! You’re free to use the copy as is or put your own spin on it.
Our Contributing Partners (that’s you) and our Promotion Partners (those who spread the word in exchange for being featured on the Gift Page without sharing a gift) are gonna make some noise with this event.
Every virtual assistant wants to grow her business and is eager to have tools to help her do that. Problem is, she’s busy serving her clients. By building the buzz and participation you’ll help thousands of solopros to move confidently to the next level. Doesn’t get easier to talk about than that.
PLUS– we’ll be promoting this innovative Giveaway on social media, specific VA forums and blogs as well as with a contest to pump up interest.
This event is going to be huge! We’ll keep in touch on a

We will send regular status updates and reminders of upcoming deadlines, information or next steps so we all stay on the same page and GIYH becomes the most impactful, talked about, successful event of 2013.
We all benefit by looking at what went well and what we can do differently next time. All Partners are asked to take a short survey following the event. And, if you really liked the event, we’d ask for a testimonial, too.
You have a wonderful transformation to share with our guests. With your help, they will find new inspiration, tools, support to carry on their mission and….the money they always dreamed of earning. You’re about to rock their world and we hope you feel proud about that- we do! Remember our challenge is to find $100k in hidden wealth!!
Make the fit right. Spend time really thinking about how your gift can specifically help a virtual assistant to find or create more wealth in her business. Not something generic you pulled out of your hard-drive.
What’s the natural next step to cash? Think about what you can promote as your paying offer that solves the next problem a guest might have after working with your gift. What will make it easier for her to get the results she wants? Add [GrandinHand] in your subject line to build familiarity and trust.
Treat everybody like they’re part of your tribe. Treat our guests like they’re worth gold because- they are! Be friendly and responsive. The excitement you bring to transforming businesses and lives will be so infectious…and attractive to new subscribers.
Stay on their radar, gently yet persistently. You know what it’s like to get 50 ‘buy my thing’ emails a day. That’s not the experience we’re after. Make your follow up personal and useful- suggest an article, answer a question, check in on progress. Most of us stop after 2 or so touches with prospective clients but studies show it takes more than 5 before you capture a prospect’s attention.
Spread the word, strategically. The more we all spread the word, the faster and bigger this Giveaway will grow in visibility. Yet we don’t want to be spammy. Take a minute to think about who in your tribe, which forum groups or bloggers will resonate with the message of finding hidden income or creating new income streams.
Good, we got milk, eh answers. Shoot your questions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s to all of us having a smashing time and building wealth one solopro at a time!
NOTE: To be fair to all, Partners who don’t comply with the terms and conditions may be removed from the Partners community and have their gift de-listed from the Gifts page at our sole discretion.
