My people say that the house of a king that gets burnt only adds beauty to it. I believe that this will be the case with this current post, because this is my second time of writing it all over from scratch. I actually wrote one and posted yesterday night only to wake up this morning and discover that I slept shortly after, and the link timed out as well. I refreshed my site and the latest post wasn’t there. I however am not distracted in my mission.
Just last week, I wrote about Reward and Recognition and wrote extensively about an experiment I intended using to reward loyal readers on this site. The details of this is available here. In summary however, I asked the first 10 people to signify their interest in participating in this experiment to deposit N50,000 in my account. I informed them that they would be required to mail articles from this site, using the email this post link on each of the posts to an average of 100 people per month (about 3+ per day), while they do this, I promised to work hard to return N220,000 each to the 10 participants within the next 90 days. In the course of the week, two deadlines were set to have the 10 participants pay in. Interestingly, 9 participants paid in, opening up one slot still to all others. Instead of setting another deadline though, I have decided to make this one slot open to as many of all the others that indicated their interest in the experiment before today-31st March, 2007. How will this work? Read on.
The 9 people who have made their payments are automatically guaranteed of having a slot in the experiment. Within the course of the next 90 days I would be disbursing funds into your accounts. I will appreciate if you make your phone numbers personally available to me, this way I can flash you the cash as it comes in. Don’t worry if you don’t have a First Inland Bank account though, as soon as I flash you cash, an account is created for you, and all you need do is go to any of the Bank’s branches with your ID card and your text message.
How will it work for the last slot?
For the extra one slot I’m opening it to any of the others who is still interested and indicated their interest before today. You are all encouraged to pay into the same account (please send me a text as soon as you do). However, the only person amongst them who will be entitled to N220,000 is the person among them who is able to send the most articles to the most people (don’t worry I”ll have a log of these, and publish the data. I will also keep all participants updated regularly). All the others will be given a 30% returns on their N50,000 within the same 90 days for their time and effort. All interested are expected to pay no later than the 6th of April, 2007.
All the others that contest for the one slot will also be given first right of way in future opportunities and experiments.
Once again I say thank you for your loyalty, and look forward to more opportunities to reward you again and again. If you believe you know any way in which we can make this site work better, please feel absolutely free to communicate it here. I truly, truly love and appreciate you all.икони
