Hello good folks. If you aren’t aware, I just released my Production video theme for Genesis on Wednesday. I’m working hard at selling the theme, but honestly I’m a really crappy salesman. I don’t write great headlines, I’m not good ask asking for the sale, and I don’t advertise like I should. What I do is write good code. Production and the Genesis Media Project plugin that is the core of Production is an example of that.
I want to make the Genesis Media Project into an even better plugin with some really cool features for video, images, and audio. All of that takes time and we all know, time it money. I’d like to keep Genesis Media Project free so other developers can do really cool things with it, but that means I need to learn to sell my themes. As in actively convince other people they should buy it. Since I’m really bad at selling I thought I’d try to build some momentum buy giving a copy away.
I figure this will help two ways, first I’m going to ask folks to help spread the word to get their chance at a free copy. Second, if folks are using the theme that should make people go “hey, that is amazing I want a theme like that!”
So, how can you get a chance at a free theme right now? Pretty simple, go check out the Production demo. Take your time, see what is going on, then comment about what you like.
There’s just one more little catch. I’ve done a giveaway in the past, and for some reason I only got 2 comments. That isn’t going to really help me sell the theme, and if I don’t sell the theme I can’t afford to make the Genesis Media Project into what it really deserves to be. So I’m running this contest till I get back from South By South West, or until I get at least 25 entries (comments). So I also need to to get folks to sign up to win. If I get 50 comments before the contest ends I’ll give away 2 copies, and for each 25 comments I get I’ll give away another copy, so honestly, your odds of winning look pretty good no matter how many folks we get to sign up.
Oh, and if you aren’t sure, I’ll be back from SXSW Monday March 12th, so this gives you about a week. If you love the theme and can’t wait (honestly I really hope that’s true) please visit the market place and pickup your copy of the Production Video theme for Genesis today.
Some important fine print (I know this is written at the same font as the rest, but I’m not a salesman).
I am providing this copy separate from the StudioPress MarketPlace. I’ll email the winner a copy and it is theirs to use for their sites and client sites and pretty much anything else the GLP license allows. Please nothing illegal, but if you do find a way to do something illegal with it that’s on you. I warned you. In any case since it isn’t part of Copyblogger, StudioPress, the MarketPlace or any of that it isn’t going to be maintained/supported there. That doesn’t mean I’ll just leave you hanging though. Just wanted you to know I’m giving it away, not StudioPress.
Oh, and one more thing. Since I’m trying to make sure as many people hear and look as possible, you get one entry in this contest per commenter, not per comment. Feel free to leave more than one comment, but you still only get one entry.
So what are you waiting for?
