Happy Anniversary Great Escape Farms

Happy Anniversary Great Escape Farms!  One year ago today Great Escape Farms posted our first blog post on GreatEscapeFarms.com.  After one year we have a successful blog post with 287 articles, a YouTube channel with 111 videos, a podcast with 58 episodes, a Facebook page, a nursery that sells unique edible plants, and many, many new friends!

The Pre-Work

While the first blog post went out one year ago, Great Escape Farms was more than a year in the making prior to the first blog post.  There were many lawyer and accountant visits and countless hours reading books on business plans, how to build a web site, and how to get a site to rate on Google as well as other search engines.

The Payoff

In my opinion all of this work has paid off.  Here are some of our current stats:

YouTube Views: 16,835

Podcast Downloads: 4,434

Subscribers: 537

Visits to Great Escape Farms yesterday: 136

Onward To 1,000

We now want to get our number of subscribers to 1,000.  With your help this could be accomplished in a relatively short period of time.  As an incentive to help, we are going to run a contest that we are calling the “Subscriber Appreciation Contest”.  This contest will reward at least two lucky winners who follow the instructions below.

Subscriber Appreciation Contest

To Enter the Contest:

Do at least one of the following:

  • Tell friends, family, and acquaintances about us and get them to check us out. It helps if you refer them to a post that they would be interested in.
  • If you have a blog, please blog about our web site, podcast, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, or Twitter sites.
  • Tell people about us on in forums, on Twitter, or some other social media platform or share our articles on Facebook.

Then Do This:

After you have done one of the above, send an email to [email protected] including your name, email address, and which method above you did to qualify for the contest.  Also, tell us how you are subscribed.  Entrants must be a subscriber in some way to qualify for the contest.  You could be subscribed to our FaceBook page, our email newsletter, on Twitter, or as a podcast subscriber.  To subscribe to our newsletter go to this link: Great Escape Farms Newsletter.

About Your Email Address

Entering this contest does not subscribe you to any list.  We will not use your name or email information from the contest for anything other than the drawing.  We will announce the names of the winners on the blog post and podcast.  After the contest is over your entry names and email addresses will be discarded.

The Prize

We will hold a drawing and pick two winners from the eligible entrants.  The drawing will be held when we reach our goal of 1000 subscribers.  The prize will be a personally autographed copy of Michael Judd’s book: “Edible Landscaping with a Permaculture Twist”.
