FREE Vegan Bodybuilding t-shirt for e-mailing people


Recommended Posts



It may sound silly, but I want to support this forum as much as I can, so I want to offer a free t-shirt to people who encourage non-forum members to vote for this forum in the VegNews Magazine Awards Contest. If we win that contest, we'll get tons of exposure and tons of new forum members which will enhance our overall community.


Here is how it will work.


I will give you a free Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness t-shirt to you for every 25 non-forum members you get to vote for www.veganbodybuilding.com as "Favorite Vegan Forum" in the contest here:




While you're at it, please encourage them to vote for Robert Cheeke as "Favorite Vegan Athlete"


Essenially it is dollar for every vote, paid out in clothing


Our NEW shirts are $20 plus $4.95 shipping, so basically $25 and you'll get them for free when you tell 25 of your friends to vote for us!


They must be NON-Forum members. I have someone helping me promote this contest within the forum already.


This will basically be on the honor system.


When you send out the e-mails to your friends, family, etc. please have them confirm that they have actually voted. So please don't contact me until you have 25 confirmations.


Use myspace, facebook, or your e-mail contact lists to reach people. For some of you, this could take less than 5 minutes to get an e-mail out to 100+ people and get 25 confirmations.


Easy and quick way to get ahold of some of our awesome new clothing you've seen many of us wearing around.




Questions....contact me



An e-mail may look like this:


"Hey Friends,


The website forum I use all the time, as well as the website forum creator, are both up Awards for VegNews Magazine. Please visit this link and vote for www.veganbodybuilding.com as "Favorite Vegan Forum" and Robert Cheeke as "Favorite Vegan Athlete."




Just by voting you get entered into a drawing for a FREE trip, and by voting for Robert and Vegan Bodybuilding, I'll get a FREE Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness t-shirt as a thank you from Robert because I helped promote the contest.


Thanks so much!

I really appreciate it!

How is this coming along?


I sold a bunch of shirts recently! People seem to be into them and we'll sell a ton at the Animal Rights Conference this weekend.


You can get one for FREE just by telling your myspace or facebook friends to vote for our forum


It's my way to say thanks for supporting us, going the extra mile to introduce our forum to others.


Tons of NEW items coming soon as well since they have been selling so well lately.

How many people are owed a shirt?


4 more days left! Just let me know you got a bunch of confirmations and I'll ship out a shirt of choice to you. Thanks!


Here is an example letter (from my perspective):


Hello friends,


I'll keep this short. This is just a reminder that there are only 4 days left to vote for the VegNews Magazine Awards. (please tell others about it too!). There are lots of prizes you could win too, an incentive they created to get more people excited about the voting. VegNews is a great magazine too, and a big support of me and Vega.


I've been nominated as Favorite Vegan Athlete


My website www.veganbodybuilding.com has been nominated as Favorite Veg Forum


This is the largest voting of its kind with more than 20,000 voters. I honestly believe that I am one of the front runners for the Favorite Vegan Athlete award and if I can win it, I will officially be the "People's Choice" as Favorite Vegan Athlete in North America. A title I would love to have and use to promote the lifestyle that I have lived for 13 years.


To vote, please go to this link and please encourage others to vote too!:




If you don't know who to vote for in the other categories, please consider voting for some Portland based businesses.


Some other names to look for are:


Vega -The company I work for (favorite vegan supplement)
