Buy Me A Drink

Posted in Internet Marketing at 1:50 pm by Carrie Wigal

I was just reading through a discussion thread at SelfStartersWeeklyTips.com and came across Ladan Lashkari. I saw that she was from Iran and thought, how interesting. I then saw she had the animator for her blog in her forum signature…something I’m having difficulty to get to work in mine, and I saw one of her headlines and thought again, how interesting, so I clicked on it.

When I got there I thought, the look of this blog is very cheerful and I just scanned the home page and saw something at the end of her top post that said “Get Ladan a Drink”… I wondered what that was and scanned her right margin and saw a star that indicated “Buy Ladan a Drink” and so I clicked on it. Very interesting… so I clicked again at the bottom to learn more about this “buy-me-a-drink” campaign…

And you know what? I immediately thought of Lynn Terry. She has been a HUGE blessing in my life when it comes to internet marketing. While I had the opportunity to meet with her in person a few years ago, I haven’t had the chance since. We met for lunch at that time in Tennessee while moving cross country, and to be honest I can’t remember who paid for who, but there have been COUNTLESS times since then when I have wanted to buy her a drink or something for all the FREE help she’s given me.

I suggested she check out this software/script thing-y so I could show my appreciation for all of her help. I hope she goes with it, or something like that. As it is now, I pretty much turn to her for all of my internet marketing purchases (when possible)…especially if I heard it from her first.

Anyway, what do you think of the concept? Tipping people via Paypal to show one’s appreciation. Please share your comments.

    Best,
