Promoting VFP

by kevin In reply to Kevin Ragsdale - FoxPro C ...

<p>I've revised the VFP promo videos I posted earlier, correcting some spelling and grammatical errors, and pumping up the volume on the video clip from the movie D.O.A. Plus, I added the Microsoft "disclaimer" to the end of each video.</p>
<p>All of the videos are available for direct download (links are below).</p>
<p><a href="http://craigbailey.blogspot.com/">Craig Bailey</a> noted on his blog the other day that he <a href="http://craigbailey.blogspot.com/2006/07/vfp-kevin-ragsdale-hits-high.html">liked the music in the promos</a>, and <a href="http://www.sweetpotatosoftware.com/SPSBlog/">Craig Boyd</a> noted that by the time he was done watching them he'd felt like he'd <a href="http://www.sweetpotatosoftware.com/SPSBlog/PermaLink,guid,e14463bf-7e5d-4eaf-b6ad-5b16023dd9b1.aspx">heard the VFP Theme Song</a>. </p>
<p>I got the music from a website, STOCK20.COM, which licenses royalty-free music for only $7 per song. The really cool thing about this site is if you create a new account, they will give you a $7 credit toward your first purchase, which means you can create an account and get the music (the song title is "Metallicated") FREE. </p>
<p>I'm picturing dozens of promotional videos created by the community, all using the same "theme song" for VFP (hint, hint).</p>
<p>Why the sudden interest in promoting VFP? Well, like I said the other day, I was trolling through the <a href="http://www.sweetpotatosoftware.com/SPSBlog/">SPS Weblog</a>, and rediscovered the videos Craig has done. I also ran across Craig's <a href="http://www.sweetpotatosoftware.com/SPSBlog/PermaLink,guid,45bf2281-88a7-4d42-a75d-8fe7e87ae734.aspx">Call for VFP Community Action</a>, which was posted almost a year ago (July 27, 2005), and immediately felt "re-inspired".</p>
<p>Anyway, the revised versions will be available at <a href="http://video.google.com">Google Video</a> once they've been "verified" by Google.</p>
<p>If you do view them at Google Video, do me a favor and rate the videos. Send the link to your co-workers, friends, even your enemies. Let's put VFP on the Google Video Hot 100 List!</p>
<p>If you prefer to download them, you can get them in zipped format at the following links. All three of the videos are in WMV (Windows Media) format.</p>

You get a $7 credit for creating an account, and I get a $7 credit for referring you. I'm not posting the link on the blog for obvious reasons.</p>
