Update: There are only 5 out of 10 invitations left!
Have you heard of Dropbox? This nifty tool has developed quite a buzz lately, and after personally trying it, I can see why. Not only is it intuitive and simple to use, it could possibly become my preferred online storage for the future. See my review of Dropbox here.
Since I am a beta tester, I have been gifted with 10 beta invitations that I’d like to hand out to my readers. Rather than me just toss them in the air like a bouquet at a wedding after party, I’m going to try and get a little creative here.
Since most of my readers should be in the real estate field (or related to it), I thought it’d be nifty to ask a question. The first person to answer the question right in a comment under this post will get a beta invitation! Seems pretty simple; right?
I’ll post a question, then wait for the right answer in a comment. Commenters please be sure to enter your correct email address when posting as this is the way I will send your invite.
After I’ve gotten the right answer, I will post up the answer to the question, along with the winners name. Shortly thereafter, the 2nd question will be posted the following business day.
(Queue the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Music”) – I know; I’m dramatic.
