Starting this Tuesday, a new section of the Flowtricks website will open up. It's called "Flowtricks games"
Once a week, we will have new challenges where you can earn points.
Once a week, we will also be giving away a $5 amazon gift certificate in a drawing
Once a month, we will be giving away a $20 amazon gift certificate in a drawing
You can enter in the raffle by earning points. You can earn points by a) Winning the challenges. b) Posting amazing/cool engaging content on the website c)Interacting on the website (some of you already have accumulated some points!) d) the $8 patreon tier will now give you bonus points as well – so you will be able to go to the website and enter in raffles and drawings.
Soon, I will be contacting vendors and we will have other prize drawings also. The amount of prizes will roughly be 10% of donations – so as we grow, so will the prizes. 🙂
Longer Background Story:
I guess you could say that this is either the last chapter of the website, or the start of a brand new book for it! After spending two years(2017-2018), and several hundred hours creating it – I was hoping that the flowtricks website would become a brand new home for the community… Something bigger than Facebook could hope to do. My dream was that it would become a repository of flow tutorials, ninja tricks, people sharing and writing their flow thoughts, games and more. Right now, it has every youtube video that I made categorized, groups, your own flow journal, find a spinner in your area, music for flow recommendations, your own facebooklike profile page, meme generators and more! It didn't catch on unfortunately, and it's been fairly quiet overall. And that's not anyone to blame, I'm sure it's my bad marketing and it takes time to get used to how it flows!
All in all, I considered much of my website to have been unsuccessful overall and often had second guessed myself on that venture. When it came time to renew the site this morning (It's $`420 a year – gogeek on siteground), I had to decide if this was the end of the website, or if I should just renew it and give it one more shot.
I've decided to give the website one last shot. If it works – then I feel like this could be the start of a beautiful thing. Having it work just means that there is a new vitality in Flowtricks, that people will join the competitions, we'll get vendors, people start posting and sharing their content, helping others. I think that would be a wonderful thing.
But if it doesn't, at least I gave it one more shot! I'll give it an honest effort, and I might need to find some admins to help. If it doesn't work, then I'll likely not renew it and just focus on making videos and doing gigs. Either way, I'm okay with it. Just wanted to give it a shot! Either way, please be sure to check out the website and wait for games. 🙂
