I am planning on getting a friend of mine about a six month membership as a Christmas Present. Maybe you can offer a package at a certain price as kind of a gift certificate. These could be bought only by existing members. You could make a pretty thing to print out for under the tree with a place to add the receiver's new log in name and password.


Just an idea that could really boost memberships. biggrin.gif

I tried to post this twice on Kris's board but it disappeared when I clicked "post new topic" huh.gif

Hey, good idea. I would probably get at least one gift cert for someone I know.

Good idea, but how would the subscription process work? I think if it were just a use-for-a-while system, Piracy might come into play. Not by GMCers of course, but by the person receiving the certificate.

Looks like a great idea to me Leadbreak smile.gif .

Maybe we could also do the reverse - give gift subscriptions to the 'not so good' guitar tuition sites to people we don't like biggrin.gif .

Cheers,
Tony

Maybe there could be a fairly easy way to get this started....

Somebody talented at arts-fartsy stuff photoshop etc (matt mellow.gif ?) could design a certificate/gifty thing...then all we would need to do create an account for that person ourselves...

one small problem though...we would need to set up a new paypal account.

I guess the process would go as follows-
--create blank certificate
--make new paypal account (you! will make one for your friend...no admins etc wink.gif )
--make new subscription with a forum account
--cancel subscription (this would still give the user their remaining 6 month etc left am i right?)
--make sure credit/debit card is removed from paypal account!! (just incase that friend gets a bit carried away when he/she sees a paypal address--after all they're going to see it often.)
--then just make sure your friend is given the paypal address and password along with the rude forum name biggrin.gif and password...maybe write it on the back of the gift certificate.

This way i think would work without too many threats to our moneys etc.
GMCers could just download the template certificate and print it out smile.gif

Could there not just be a way to purchase a username and password that would just automatically expire in 6-12 months and then if the gift receiver wants to keep going he will just have to sign up on his own after that. We as members would guard the new account since GMC would have a record of who is responsible for buying that account.
