Special One Week Only CwF+RtB Offer… Plus International Sales
from the going-strong... dept
Last week we announced our fun CwF + RtB experiment, offering up lots of cool options for people to purchase, if they found them worth it. We’ve had a tremendous response so far, and we’ve definitely got some more exciting things coming up, but we’ll start today with two announcements concerning the offerings:
First, we’re thrilled that we can now offer up international sales on all hard goods items as well (previously, it was limited only to domestic sales for the hardgoods). There were a few issues that needed to be worked out to do that, but we’ve now figured out most of the legal details that made it such a pain and can now accept orders and ship to most places around the globe. We’ve received plenty of requests from outside the US asking us when this would happen — and the answer is now: so check it out.
Second, we’re offering up a special promotion for this week only:
If you order both the Techdirt Music Club and the Techdirt Book Club between now and midnight PT, August 3rd (one week from today), we’ll throw in either a free Techdirt Hoodie, or, if you happen to be local to the Bay Area — a lunch with me (obviously, you’re responsible for getting yourself to the lunch). If you’ve already bought one of the two packages, to qualify, you just need to buy the other (for yourself, or a friend!) and you’ll qualify as well.
The book club and the music club are really quite wonderful offerings. The music club has some great stuff not available anywhere else — including a unique, one-of-a-kind notebook that Jill Sobule will personalize for you (by hand) by writing out some lyrics and some doodles on the first few pages, along with a copy of her latest CD. You’ll get the Who Killed Amanda Palmer book signed by both Amanda and Neil Gaiman and the Who Killed Amanda Palmer CD. You get the very cool (you have to see it to believe it) Moto Boy music box, and a signed copy of the For Martha CD, and then a special customized — for the Techdirt crowd only — signed CD from Joe Pug, that includes both tracks from his Nation of Heat CD, as well as special previously unreleased tracks.
The book club includes what I consider to be the four “must read” books this year, concerning the issues we talk about here on a regular basis. If you want to sound intelligent about these things, those are the four books to read — and in this case, each one will be signed by the author, which makes it a really special collection. On top of that, we’re including my Approaching Infinity book (signed by me). So, if you buy them both — this week only — you end up getting six books all signed by their authors, four CDs also signed by the musicians, a fantastic one-of-a-kind notebook by Jill Sobule, a beautiful wind up music box from Moto Boy and your choice of a Techdirt hoodie or a lunch with me (if you happen to be near where I am).
Once again — the addition of the free hoodie or lunch with me only lasts until midnight PT, August 3rd, though, of course, you can continue to buy the packages until we run out. Thanks so much for everyone who’s already participated. We’ve been overwhelmed by the response, which far exceeded our expectations, and we’re working on many more ideas for the future as well!
