DVD Fulfillment Update

Sunday, December 7, 2008, 11:49 AM

UPDATED Dec. 9th 2:00pm Eastern Time

Our initial order with our fulfillment partner was for 10,000 DVDs, but All 10,000 discs sold out in the first 36 hours! As of this morning (12/9), we have orders for more than 14,000 DVDs! The first 10,000 discs were shipped from Texas today, Dec. 9th. The vendor is now producing another 7,500 DVDs and expects to ship the remaining orders on Wednesday or Thursday of this week, still in plenty of time for Christmas.

If you have not yet placed your order, I recommend you do so immediately. There are about 3,000 more DVDs in the 2nd production run that can be shipped in time for Christmas. Once they're gone, subsequent orders won't arrive until after the holiday.

The vendor is still saying that regular ground orders placed before 12/12 "should" make it well before Christmas, provided that the remaining 3,000 DVDs don't sell out. However, I know FedEx ground has had problems with the holiday rush in past years. If you place new orders for ground shipment, they "probably" will arrive before Christmas, but you should be aware of the risk that they might not.

Ordering info is repeated below:

  1. URL = http://www.crashcoursedvd.com/.
  2. Billing that will appear on your credit card = "New Media Gateway". 
    It will NOT be PeakProsperity.com.  Please be aware of this to avoid
    confusion...there is no profit on this venture for anybody and credit
    card disputes will upset this delicate balance.
  3. To get the special introductory pricing, you MUST ENTER A COUPON CODE ON THE ORDER FORM. Coupon codes (don't include the "" marks, just the text between them):

    For 30 discs, or any multiple of 30:  "30count" (<--that is a coupon code)

    For 50 discs, or any multiple of 50:  "50count"
    (<--so is that)

    For 100 discs, or any multiple of by 100:  "100count
    (<--so is that)

Re: First 10,000 DVDs sold out; more coming

I only wish the big three U.S. automakers had a product this good.  Then they wouldn't be begging.

And I wish the big banks, etc. had this much integrity.  Then they wouldn't be stealing.

Things are going to get much worse, and everybody needs the Crash Course.

Re: First 10,000 DVDs sold out; more coming

Hi Eric-

    First, congratulations on breaking 10,000!

   Hey, I've got a small marketing idea here.  I know you guys have your hands full now with the next couple of runs of the CC DVD.  But maybe later you could consider the idea of making it possible to include some of the testimonials for the CC with the DVD.  Even if you make them available for printout on the site so we could print them out and include them with the DVDs we give out.  My thought is that if we include a couple good testimonials with the DVDs, it might increase people's interest in checking out the CC.  You know, like the rave reviews you read on book covers  that often tweak your interest into checking a book out.

Re: First 10,000 DVDs sold out; more coming

That's a GREAT idea... One of the things we have in mind for the Martenson Brigade is to develop supplemental materials - like flyers, study guides, etc.

What would really be cool would be a letter from some sort of celebrity telling you why they think it's really important that you watch this. Can you imagine if we had a letter from (for example) a big Hollywood actor who has been politically active saying "This really demands your attention".

We did include some testimonials on the DVD itself, but they are at the end of Ch. 19, before the title card comes up directing you to the website to view Ch. 20.

Thanks for the great suggestion!

Erik

Downloading software from infrarecorder.org

 Erik,

This is kind of a dumb question, but is it safe to download a software program that can burn a DVD from the.ISO file directly from this site?  My browser is giving me a warning message...

 Thanks for your work!

pm,

Well there's always some risk when you download any software. All I can tell you is that I've downloaded, installed and used InfraRecorder without difficulty or problems of any kind.

Matt Damon might be down with something like that.

presentmoment,

Last year, InfraRecorder was rated by CNet as the best free alternative to commercial DVD burning software.  Please read this article for more information: http://crave.cnet.co.uk/software/0,39029471,49294100-9,00.htm

Re: First 10,000 DVDs sold out; more coming

I would like to see Chris interview on Coast to Coast radio. Its a great night to morning radio show that has everything from aliens, bigfoot to Catherine Fisk (banking) and Geralde Celante (trends research). Mailing George Noory a copy of DVD might get him calling ya.

I have tried several times mailing in request for them check you guys out over the past 3 months.
