Random 50% discount

Postby DLinkOZ » Tue Mar 23, 2004 10:46 pm

I'm really eager to give back to my customers, so this was my initial idea. I'll randomly go through all customers, giving one each month 50% off their invoice. I won't repeat any customer until all have received it.

My question to everyone, I don't think this is enough... so what else should/could I do?

ok, let me see if I have this straight...

on top of the game server, that they are basically paying cost of upkeep for, they recieve:
unlimted e-mail accounts
web hosting
free domain names if they so choose
stats packages (for the games that support them)
and now randomly 50% off for 1 month untill everyone get's the discount... rinse, repeat...

how about free kittens? everybody loves kittens...

Honestly I can't imagine what else you could do...also, did I miss anything in the tonnes of extras they recieve?

Voice comms (If we don't currently run their choice of software, we'll give it a shot) and database hosting. Other than that I think you got everything. Plus we're open to our customers just flat out requesting other things... if it's doable we'll make it happen.

My main concern is that this isn't fair to everyone. I mean, the guys who pay in excess of $100/month get a juicy discount with 50%... meanwhile the guys with smaller 10 player servers at $37.50 get a very small discount. I may just change it to a flat rate of $50 for the month.

*EDIT*
I changed it to $50. Just seems more fair that way. Since on one end, a $140 customer would get $70, but a $40 customer would only get $20. This way everyone gets the same amount. If I get a few more customers, I may make it 2 customers a month, etc.

Dave, I think that's awesome, I really do...

You should be known as the gamer's "Santa Claus". I mean, gifts for everyone...

One question though.. the members that only pay $37.50... does that mean that you pay them $12.50? cause I would say that's a little over the top there...

$50 no matter how much they pay. So for the $37.50 guys, they won't pay for a month and a half.
