Default Website Giveaway

Since I don't have much in the way of a portfolio, I was trying to come up with a way to show my abilities to forum members. I thought, what better way than to offer a FREE website! Here are the details.

How To Enter
Entering is simple. I have chosen a number between 1 and 1,000. I have already private messaged Steve with the number. To enter, you simply post your guess here. Only one guess please and you can't change your number once posted.

Who Can Enter
Absolutely anyone. Well, almost. You have to have a lawn care company and be a member of this forum. If you are a lurker reading this, you can qualify by joining.

The Full Details:
This will end at noon on the 18th of this month (This Friday). All guesses need to be made by then. I will go through at that time and announce the winner. (The winner will be the closest to that number) In the event of a tie, the parties will guess a new number and the closest to the new number will win. Process is repeated until we are down to one lawn care company.

I will then get to work on building a custom site. The site will be simple. Roughly four or five pages. It will be of the same quality that I would build for anyone. It will have a contact form. If you wish to accept credit cards, I can integrate PayPal to the website.

You will also receive 1 full year of support! This covers any updates or changes to the site FREE OF CHARGE!

The Fine Print
You are financially responsible for hosting and domain name. You can either set this up with GoDaddy or I can set it all up for you. Since this promotion is free for you, I require GoDaddy hosting. I am familiar with their site and set up and don't really want to get accustomed to another companies interface for this special offer. Plus, GoDaddy is probably the cheapest route for you. Hosting is currently $5.00 and if you purchase your domain name at the time you purchase the hosting, you get it for $1.99 instead of the regular $11.99. This is for .com names, other TLD may cost more or less.

If you don't want to be bothered with setting this up yourself, you can send me $10.00 via PayPal and I'll set it all up for you. This will cover my PayPal fees and be enough for me to secure the name and hosting.

Also, I would prefer the winner send me their logo (if they have one), any pictures they would like on the site and what each page should say (the copy). This isn't a requirement but will make the development time much shorter.






I think that covers everything. If I have been unclear on something or you have any questions, let me know and I'll address your concerns.

HAPPY GUESSING!

I use godaddy for domain and hosting for my website. I use Filezilla to load files into the hosting. My guess is 768.

Sure does. There will be 1 winner no matter what. In the event of a tie (two or more people pick the same number or two pick a number an equal distance from the actual number) we will have another "pick a number" between those until it is narrowed down to one winner.

Once you have a paypal account, go to paypal,

click on Merchant services
under the heading - create buttons choose Add to cart or Buy now to create a payment button

You can give several money amounts in the button

generate html code and insert it into your website.

PM sent sir. No money required. If you feel you must give something, next time you are near your local food pantry, stop in and give a small donation.
