Sometimes you have to be there to realize the full awesomeness of some event or other.
And while you can talk about it afterwards…there is nothing like actually being there to experience what happened.
Thursday’s Sweeva Surf Party was one of those occasions and the event in question was the following splash page which was shown by Boris Petricevic.
As you can almost see, he offered CTP XP for those who signed up to his CTP XP Mania list…and he cleverly branded the promotion so that the page was also a team page for Lucky 13.
What you can’t see is the way he did it because there is nothing on his video.
That is because there was never any recorded video there at all…Boris appeared live on Sweeva at the Sweeva Surf Party and explained his offer in person.
Except that nobody could hear him because his microphone was not working…but he thought of that too and had written out his message on old ‘silent-movie style’ caption cards instead.
This is something which Jon has been suggesting people should do for years and until now nobody seemed prepared to even give it a try.
Anyone who was at the Surf Party will realize what a massive impact this ad had. In fact I felt really sorry for the next two advertisers on Sweeva because Jon and I were still talking about Boris’s page for at least the next two pages which came along. It really was that good.
It was the final Sweeva Surf Party before Season Three officially begins on Monday and the competition, both for the individual prizes and team prizes was intense.
The contest was so intense that it came down to the final pages in the last minutes of the Surf Party to decide the winners for both categories.
SurfAholics Alpha took the team honors for the second week in a row, CSN was second and Lucky 13 was third.
John Novak took the individual contest, Carl Belcher was second while Ken Locatelli and Sig Skele tied for third place.
This coming Thursday sees the first Sweeva Surf Party of the new season so it is time to start thinking of that already. It will be fun.
