I've decided to cancel my Lucky Envelope Promotion. It seems that I have unwittingly offended people by running this promotion. I have had a couple of emails from other Demonstrators, and from the customers of other Demonstrators telling me of their unhappiness. It was never my intention for anyone other than my own customers to participate, and I only advertised it through my blog and to my newsletter subscribers.
I made the decision to effectively give away my Commission (and then some) in prizes this month in order to try and earn the trip, and it was not my intention to take away from the sales of any other Demonstrator.
Two years ago when I ran this Promotion, it generated lots of positive feelings and I was left feeling uplifted by the generosity of so many people (and I like to think that maybe they enjoyed helping me too). This time, it seems to have stirred up only negative feelings, and no trip is worth spending the month feeling the way that I do at the moment.
Thanks everyone for your support and understanding.
Now, back to your regular programming :o)
