Happy Half-Birthday to the Toolkit, Plus a Giveaway

Friday, April 03, 2009

The Improv Toolkit Volume 1 had its half-birthday last week, and what a half-year it has been!  

The only statistic I've found on belly dance videos says that an independent belly dance instructional with really good word-of-mouth can expect to sell 300 copies in its first year.  

As of its half birthday (the 26th), TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY NINE copies of Volume 1 have been sold.  

That must have been some pretty fantastic word-of-mouth!

I owe a great big thank you to everyone for your support on this project: for your emails, your reviews, and for recommending it to your friends and message board buddies.  Not only does your support mean a lot to me personally, but that's two hundred and forty nine dancers improving their improv skills, thanks to you.

I think this calls for some free stuff!  

Let's run with the word-of-mouth theme.  Tell me what you think of the Improv Toolkit DVD in this survey*, and enter to win your choice of:

  • The Improv Toolkit Volume 1 DVD (a $29.95 value)

  • The Improv Toolkit Volume 2 DVD (a $29.95 value), to be shipped when it's released early this summer*

  • Episodes 1-3 of my Taktaba podcast on DVD (a $45 value)

  • A copy of Belly Dancing for Fortune and Fame, the CD with all the music from the podcast and Toolkit (an $18 value)

*You do NOT have to have seen the Toolkit in order to enter.

This is a random drawing, so the content of your feedback has no bearing whatsoever on your chances of winning.  Please be completely honest; I want the next volumes to be the best they can be, so I need to know what you don't like, as well as what you do!

The Fine Print: All entries must be submitted by noon eastern time on Friday, April 10th, 2009.  To be eligible for the drawing, you must enter a valid email address so I can notify you. One entry per person.  THREE lucky winners will be selected at random from among all eligible entries and notified by email at the addresses entered on the survey.   Each winner must respond within 14 days of notification, or their prize will be forfeited, and an alternate winner will be chosen.
