Largely based on your input I have decided to do a very small pilot program offering discounts for friends of past guests.
That is, the number of discounts will be very small.
The size of the discounts for the pilot program only, on the other hand, will be quite big.
Here’s how it is going to work:
We will send a discount certificate with a 15% discount to the first 10 readers of this blog who send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Discount for Friends” in the subject line.
I have designed the certificate below to respond to Chase’s qualm about the “fine print.”
The amount of the discount will probably never be this high again, so. If you get one, give it to a really good friend who is highly likely to use it.
Assuming that you are your own really good friend and likely to use it, feel free to give the certificate to yourself.
It would be a drag if future guests who already paid asked for the discount, but I did not want to clutter up the certificate with another condition. So I have decided to hope it doesn’t happen. If future guests who already paid present the certificate we’ll explain that we will honor the discount if they insist, but it will mean that we will put the condition on all future certificates. If they still insist we will of course give them the credit.
So here we go. I’ll look for your emails and keep you abreast of how this plays out. As well as (or instead of) writing to get a certificate please let me have you comments and suggestions.
By the way everyone who commented on last week’s post gets a bag of coffee…or chocolates or something.
