    If anyone has other ideas to enhance personal marketing, please share your successes here.

    About a year ago, I was asked to develop a small game (for free) for a non-profit organization that they could deliver to their constiuency to help promote their services.

    What I came up with was a small, addictive pong-like game with a few twists. For the paddles, I used familiar elements of their services, and for the "ball" I used a 3-d animated image of their logo. The graphics were important, as I wanted this project to be very professional in appearance.

    At the end of the game, i.e. the credits screen, I provided a logo and link to my design website, with a catchy phrase to peak their curiosity. (OK, the phrase was, "Click here to promote your business with a customized game!) Pretty catchy, huh?

    The company distributed the game, (a standalone executable) through email, floppy disks, and a website download.

    Though the game was simple, and not a full-scale adventure, or anything like that, it boasted this company's services with simplistic clarity.

    I was blown away by the feedback I recieved! I have been nearly overwhelmed by the new business generated from this simple little "FREE" project. And the great thing is that most people just want a modified version of this little game. It takes less than four hours to create and swap the custom graphics into it!

    I hope this can help someone else out there.

    Great job, JabezStone!!! That's the kind of events that alot of us wish could have happened to us. Clearly, this is a prime example of "you get what you give". By giving your services, and utilizing the most important aspect of business (CREATIVITY), amazing things happen!

    Again, KUDOS!!!
    I'm happy for you!

    Well you deserved it!
    I love little games like that and doesn't it feel good to be the "center of attention"?
