Help Your VIP Chances: Spreading the Word of ZAMFollow

Heyo folks -

Since you're all working so hard to get your hands on those coveted VIP keys, there are a few ways that definitely got our attention here at ZAM. While posting a ton is fantastic, getting new people involved in the site is definitely a high priority on our radar. While we can't guarantee keys to everyone that spreads the word of ZAM to the other Rift communities, the official site, and elsewhere, it'll definitely help your chances.

Feel free to PM Kaasha or myself (or both of us) with evidence showing your other forum posts, or you can even post them in this thread and we can make a game of it. Let's build this community as big as possible!

I'll start: http://forums.riftgame.com/showthread.php?6335-Rift-ZAM-s-VIP-Beta-Key-Giveaway

That is a good idea.

I went ahead and bumped your thread on the main forums.
http://forums.riftgame.com/showthread.php?6335-Rift-ZAM-s-VIP-Beta-Key-Giveaway&p=189134#5

And I made some of my own.

Note I wasn't able to register the same name on all the sites and some I made earlier than Rift so the names were different then to correspond with my most active character.

Also made a post announcing ZAM in the Rift thread in the order of the Blue Gartr forums:

One guy on MMORPG is attempting to seek a new low in offering oral pleasures for a beta key. I posted a link to these forums and this VIP giveaway to be his savior.

Also added a post on our guild's Public Rift section.

I want a Beta key pretty bad but I'm not willing to spam other peoples sites with your propaganda and sell out my friends by posting all over their websites in hopes you'll pick me. That's pretty low and dirtball like. You should change the name of Zam to Scam.

You dont have to help advertise its just another means to show your activity. People who make good contributions to threads and the community will be selected as winners too. So even if you dont advertise on other sites you still have a good chance. Keep your chin up and dont let your desperation turn you into something your not. I have posted a list of lots of other sites you can get a key from too. Keep trying mate :)

Most MMO players are fanatics so with all the buzz generated from from these VIP giveaways pretty much every forum I go to already has a ton of postings linking to every site known to man so I asked myself "if I was ZAM and wanted to get my webpage some attention what could I do that isn't already being done" so with that in mind I thought for awhile and realized how I could get a message to almost 1,000,000 people. So what did I do you ask?

Well I asked myself "what about the other gamers", people like me who enjoy games of all types. RPG's, FPS, RTS and of course MMO's. Well I used the most recent block buster PC game as my starting point, which was Starcraft 2. Shoutcasting is becoming HUGE in the SC2 community in the US and all over the world. Its people who announce games just like an ESPN crew casting on Monday Night Football. Well in the world of shoutcasting there are 4 big names HDStarcraft, HuskyStarcraft, Day9 and BigT. So I crafted a message and posted on each one's youtube channel as well as their Facebook fan pages. These 4 casters have close to 1,000,000 followers (yes that number is correct, one million) and many of them are in the top viewed youtube channels each and every week (usually with server hundred thousand views per week). Here are the links to my posts, I'm Matt on facebook and Magius007 on youtube.

I hope this gives me a big enough edge over some other people so I can get a VIP beta code and start to test and enjoy Rift! Thanks!

Uhm... imo this kind of greedy commentaries shouldn't allow people getting these unvaluable VIP keys. But, on the other hand, dude, you've made an awesome job :O

Greedy commentaries? I'm not sure what you mean by that? I am not the person doing the commentaries those are just the biggest names in the SC2 community that do them. I didn't post on those sites just so people could come and "steal" any VIP keys, I just wanted to do what the contest asked for and that was drumming up traffic and attention to the ZAM website.

I do think being paid to comment on video games would be a cool job though! I myself am an avid MMO player and was just trying to think out of the box and how to reach a very large audience to help increase traffic and thereby having a good and creative idea to maybe help me get a VIP beta key so I can play and test Rift.

I don't see how I'm being greedy or "entitled". I just thought that would be a good way to reach a VERY large number of people to visit the site. Plus many SC2 players enjoy MMO's, like myself, so we are more like to help the community grow by getting the info to people who might not otherwise have heard about Rift or ZAM. I apologize if my post or idea came across as greedy or entitled.
