    How to advertise the live dvd!!!

    Hi everyone! Our "FixxFamily" artists are working away on a flyer which we'll post for you to download, copy and hang up- anywhere in the world that has internet access (we'll get Ed's okay of course before we post it).

    This is a grass-roots dvd and it's going to take a grass-roots uprising of advertisement to let our Fixx friends know it's available. That means it's up to YOU and ME and EVERYBODY, EVERYBODY...

    So- prepare yourselves- revv up your copy machines! It shouldn't take long to sell out only 2000 copies. LET'S MAKE A STATEMENT!!!

    On your marks...

    i still think via internet sales and bringing the rest of them to shows to sell. they wont have any left by the 4th of July... !

    2000 isnt that many...

    -thats only 20 a night at 100 shows- some night will be more some less- but just as an average.... minus whatever they already sold via the web shop....

    let's see what Ed comes up with- They may have something all set that may be coordinated with something WE might not even know about... So let see what avenue they pursue, before we go changing lanes and streets on them and their ideas....

    If they wanna make it into a contest, if they feel it is a worth pursuing- then ok....

    but otherwise, i would let them do their jobs (s).....



    dont mean to sound neg,
    but we are just fans.... admirers of a great group of musicians,

    of course everyone wants to help.... but lets let them tell us what we can do, and leave the rest to their team of experts.....

    they may already have stuff designed ready to go- (A surprise that if they told us now, it would make that future announcement that much less a secret....)

    we will all be satisfied i am sure-

    hang tight mee friends.....

    You know what, Dave. I respect your opinion...some of us, however, have nothing better to do with our lives than try and promote that which we believe in. Some of us really WANT to do SOMETHING- that's what the street team is for- us crazy heads!

    Ed just told me not to bother with flyers, but I had one made already which I'll put up in MY local store. It's not a contest and you're right, they are sure to sell just fine.

    I need to get a job...but with 5 kids, that would stress me out...so...this is my job- to drive Ed crazy and awake the world to THE FIXX. :-)

    If you don't want to do anything, don't do anything. Save your energy and your talents and your ambition for promoting the new album when it comes out! That'll be great. IMO, a few unleashed fans aren't going to do too much to hurt the band's reputation.

    SO THERE !!!

    (and I'm not mad at you)

    Hey Cygnet,
    Hey Clive,

    Personally, whenever I'm not in the thick of Christmas retail/production at the shop...I'm always ready and willing to do whatever it takes.

    Would like to see the DVD promo flyer you made up, Rhonda...please?
    Thanks!

    No, Justin...It was really rude of me to correct your English when you were giving me a compliment. I'm sorry- sometimes the mom in me just jumps out like a bad girl and says things.

    And Diamond, you still shine to me! No worries.

    Kim, I'm waiting to hear Ed's opinion of the flyer before I post it and he won't see it till Monday but thanks for the encouragement.

    I love you guys!
