View Full Version : CPBS Give Away

08-27-2006, 01:34 PM
Ok, as the new President of Advertising and Promotions for Carolina Paintball and Supply, I'm thinking of doing a promotion to get some business rolling. My question is which would you like better:

A gun package that would include probably and Ion or a Spyder Electra w/ Eye, tank, loader, ect...


A Gift Certificate to Carolina PBS

It would basically be a raffle. Anybody who makes a purchase from CPBS in the time span we decide on will automatically be entered. At the end of that time period we will put all the names in a hat and pick a winner. Any input would help.

i pick the gift certificate.
raise the price of each item $1-$5 depending on popularity and price
and when you reach like $50-$100 in raised pricing, give it to the guy in the hat

I think a gift cert is best.......
Let the winner decide what he/she wants....
And let me know when you draw me!!!! :)

And let me know when you draw me!!!! :)

vwjimmy, i think your mistaken. there gonna choose me. :p

but i think he winner should have the choice of what they want, either 100 dollars (estimate) or a new package with an ion and all.

if i had to choose one or the other, id choose the certificate, because i dont have a need for an ion, etc. Id buy ups for the guns i have.....

but thats just from my perspective

Gift certificate. Would end up costing you guys less, and would still be awesome. As for a price, pick one.

08-27-2006, 01:51 PM
i didnt want to edit my post, but i didnt see the 'other' option.

well really, depending on the type of tank, loader, etc what i think you should do is say u get an..(this is an example)

say u get an ion, a steelie tank, and an egg.
well say mr. john doe (customer that wins) thinks steel tanks are too heavy, have the option to upgrade that, say its another 50 bucks to get a fiber tank...
and then he says that eggs are useless, so he says ill pay 70 dollars go get a halo.

if u dont get what i mean, IM me sometime josh..ill explain more/better

08-27-2006, 01:51 PM
a certificate type thing would be better. if the person who wins is like chris or matt, they have no need for an ion or similar marker...

08-27-2006, 01:57 PM
SAYS WHO?!!? :)

I want XSV pants if I win :dodgy:

08-27-2006, 02:02 PM
Are mods of SOC allowed in this contest?

I would say a gift certificate totalling the same price as the gun package, or alternate prizes worth the same...

08-27-2006, 02:14 PM
GCs are GREAT...I am putting together my first LP spyder and I need ALL the parts. I am currently budgeting to get the parts from you. A GC would be great. I am also sure that a shopping spree is something that EVERYONE could use.

2 Angel A1s...:smirk:

Gift Cert.

Thank you all for your input. The gun package would be one of the 06 Electra packages or one of the Ion packages from Firstcall Paintball, if you want to go there and look at them.

Gift certificate would be somewhere around $2-250.

I'd love to give the winner their choice of a gun package or the gift certificate but if I'm going to offer a gun package then I need to order it now so it is not out of stock when we do pick a winner.

I would also love to offer more or a high end gun, unfortunately we just don't have the money, seeing as how this is going to be coming out of our pockets.

SOC mods are eligible, except for Durrel and I, of course.

08-27-2006, 04:45 PM
Say For every order the gift certificate goes up like 3-5 dollars then in a month or two give it away by a random draw

p.s. how do you enter or is it not up yet

08-27-2006, 04:48 PM
you enter by buying stuff from the site...

08-27-2006, 04:50 PM
not up yet, I believe there just testing the waters interest wise, and asking what people would want prize wise.

GC ftw.

08-27-2006, 04:56 PM
if i bought something durring that span i would be far more likely NOT to tell anyone about the store for fear of my odds going down... i dont see it as being a "tell your friends" thing...

08-27-2006, 05:18 PM
Its not up yet and we are going to set the prize before the contest starts. We are just seeing what prizes customers might like better. When we do decide we plan on advertising the contest everywhere we can so all our friends know.

Lifetime supply of stickers.

08-27-2006, 07:01 PM
I chose the gun package... I want more guns and since I will win that is what I should get :)

I am eligible right? I've helped Josh before on web site stuff. (Say Yes :))

08-27-2006, 07:09 PM
If it ends being a Marker package, I vote for the Ion.....
More appealing to all......

08-27-2006, 08:29 PM
I think we've decided to go with the Gift Certificate and are estimating a start date of Sept 1. then run the contest through the entire month of Sept.

08-27-2006, 09:35 PM
Gift Certificate FTW! LMK when your doing it. I'll buy something lol.

08-27-2006, 09:38 PM
Gift certificate would be best since we could pick whatever we wanted. Maybe you could switch off ??

08-27-2006, 09:38 PM
uumm...he just said sept 1...
