Well, if they have a fear of looking silly, there's no doubt in my mind that I can ease those thoughts. It doesn't matter if you think you look silly, as long as you get the customer's attention. You gotta pay the bills and put food on the table. But I haven't started on mine yet, because I wanted to see if it would take off first. Maybe some of them want to see a winner, and a prize. Okay, the winner gets one million dolla -- make that one million attaboys! What do you say Tom and Debbie, should we go for it?

I suspect that once some postings appear and folks see that the purpose is more akin to a tutorial than a challenge fears will abait. I say go for it. With all the talented folks here I am looking foreward to learning some new stuff. Tom

I'm willing to try this since I hope to make a business out of this work. If I remember correctly, we have a week, right? Or are we lifting/extending that deadline? When do we start? And where do we post our results?

Sorry so many questions - just want to make sure I don't disqualify myself before I even begin. Or perhaps the questions themselves disqualify me and I don't have to enter. Phew! Pressure's off!

Jeanie

Jeaniesa, Welcome aboard! I dont think you have to worry about being disqualified or anything like that. Look at this as a sort of "community tutorial"--everyone who wants to participate and even those who elect not to get to learn from each other and share insights not only about the mechanics of creating an Ad but hopefully some insights as to what attracts people to one and how to grab attention for your business. I think ED can fill you in on the rest. Glad you are here!! Tom

Good deal -- we got another participant! I think it's been established that the time restriction will be lifted. Start whenever you feel like it. As to where you send them in, let's leave that up to Doug. HEY DOUG!! Also, do we enter our explanation as to why we think it will work, where it will appear, and any other information when we send it in?

Ed, I think so. The purpose of the challenge being the exchange of information not just limited to the technical details of HOW but the very real esoteric concerns of WHY as well. Just a thought, Tom

I think sharing this info is crucial for this sort of challenge. Things such as target audience (general or specific target?), how you have positioned yourself within that target market, etc. If we want to make a business out of this, we have to figure out how to promote ourselves to potential clients - AND to turn them into ACTUAL clients. So, describing why and/or how we think our entry will do that is as important as the entry itself, I think.

My $.02. -Jeanie
