Back in the very early days of the Goulet Pen Company, a customer/fan of ours named Wayne Mullins (of Ugly Mug Marketing) reached out to me because he was intrigued about the way we were running our business. This is back when Rachel and I were working together in our house, long before we had the great team helping us that we do today. As time went on, Wayne continued to keep in contact us as our business grew, always interested in the way we were growing our business.

A couple of months ago, Wayne reached out to me about including me in his book, So You Have A Website…Now What?. I was all for it, thinking I might get a footnote or citation somewhere. Little did I know, I’d have my name printed at the start of Chapter 1, Turning A Hobby Into A Profitable Business. Wow! Talking further with Wayne about it, we thought it would be neat to do a contest to give away some copies of his book, and thus, this contest was born!

THE PRIZES

There will be 25 prize packages awarded to 25 individual contestants. Each package will include a copy of So You Have A Website…Now What?, a Clairefontaine 3.5″x5.5″ notebook, and a Platinum Preppy fountain pen (for taking notes on the book!). Shipping is included and US as well as international contestants are eligible to win.

HOW TO ENTER


The contest will begin as soon as this post goes live on Ink Nouveau, and will end at 11:59 p.m. Eastern US time on Sunday, November 11th, 2012.

Entering is simple, just answer the few questions on our survey below and submit it. The answers will be hidden from public view, and will not be used for any purpose other than for this contest.

HOW TO WIN


All qualifying entries will be compiled into a master list and assigned a number. From this numbered list, we will randomly select 25 numbers using random.org and those will be our winners.

The winners will be announced during our live broadcast Write Time at 9, on Wednesday, November 14th at 9 p.m. EST. Wayne Mullins, the author of the book, will phone in as a live guest to tell us about himself and his book. We’ll also post the winners the following day on Ink Nouveau as we post the recording of the Write Time broadcast.

You will only be eligible for one prize, so please only enter once. If we find that you have posted using multiple aliases in order to increase your number of entries, you will immediately be disqualified from the entire giveaway. We want this to be a fair contest, so don’t be all sneaky, that’s all we ask.

We will contact all winners after the announcement to coordinate getting prizes to them. If there is no way to reach you or if you don’t respond to us within three days of announcing the winners (that means by Saturday, Nov. 17th at 9pm EST), we will consider the prize forfeited and offer it to an alternate winner. We will cover all shipping costs for the prizes, both within the US and internationally.

This contest is now officially closed, thank you to everyone who participated!

We’re very thankful to Wayne for including us in his book, as well as providing the prizes for this contest. Be sure to check out his site, and pick up a copy of his book if you’re interested. Thanks everybody, and good luck!

Write On,
