  1. In fairness now Robert, you wasn’t the only one linkin’.
    As noted above, I saw it elsewhere also. Good post though.

  3. I was about to buy it for $5 when I realized that the product is free if you have only 1 user which is my case. Giving free license for 1 user is another great marketing tool. Perforce does that also.

  5. Hi guys. The experiment’s seed started with Scoble. He had the first link which has caused others to link to it. So 1 link did start it but then others linked to it having heard from Scoble.

    With respect to activation codes…if you did not receive your activation code, your email has likely been filed as junk. However, you can also retrieve your activation code instantly after your order if you go to the “My Accounts” page of the Axosoft Online Store:

  7. I thought it was a memetracker experiment? If the bulk of the links came through you, wasn’t the experiment a failure? Memetrackers aren’t necessary.

  9. Yes, I “bought in”. Too bad I still don’t have an activation code, but I did receive the “Thank you for ordering, by now you’ve received your activation code” email from the Marketing group. I think this is a cool idea, but they should be prepared beforehand to actually meet the “I want it now” demands of people that take part in the “experiment”. I’ve taken part in several of these types of promotions, and I’ve rarely been impressed with the speed of fulfillment.

  11. It wasn’t one link. I counted 50 odd to the program. It IS awesome. And it IS proof that this stuff works, but it wasn’t just one link. Oh, if only 1 link equated to 500 orders, every company would be offering bloggers millions ;-)
