Thanks For Asking! -- 10/26/16

This week's AMA thread, and the podcast to follow, are brought to you by Darryl W. Perry:

The rules:

  • Ask me anything (anything) in the comment thread below this post; and
  • I'll answer in comments, on this weekend's podcast, or both.

I like giving things away. It seems like a good advertising/promotion strategy.

Of course, it may take time for word to get around. So let me prime the pump a bit.

More than a week ago, I put up an Amazon giveaway of five copies of David Hathaway's Immigration: Individual vs. National borders. as "door prizes" for the 100th episode of The KN@PP Stir Podcast. To date, only three of the five have been claimed. Want one free? Be one of the next two people to click here. Too late? Sorry, but hey, it's only 95 cents and well worth it.

Over at Rational Review News Digest, I gave away one copy of James Harris's fun new book, The Occult Hillary Clinton. That giveaway went up yesterday morning and I had to run it a second day for someone to win even though daily circulation of the newsletter (between web, email, Facebook, Twitter  and Liberty International "Freedom News Daily" rebrand editions) is well into the mid-four-figures. Partly my fault -- I hid the giveaway down in the material instead of prominently featuring it on the first day, to see how long it would take to claim; it went up top this morning. I'm not giving any more copies away at the moment, but once again, the book is inexpensive and, in my opinion, worth the price (I bought a copy for myself in addition to giving one away).

I'll probably start doing giveaways on a fairly regular basis on the podcast. If you'd like to sponsor one, hit the contact form and let's talk. My angle on this isn't making money directly from you as an advertiser (at least for the moment). It's attracting more listeners to the show. So (again, at least for the moment) your cost would consist solely of paying for whatever it is you're giving away.
