WANTED: Highly Motivated Street Teamers for THE PLEDGE!

Do you LOVE free SWAG???

Are you passionate about YA books???


Do you want to be a member of an exclusive club???


Oh, and did I mention the free SWAG???


If you answered YES, then have I got an offer for you!! I’m on the lookout for FIFTY devoted YA enthusiasts to join my exclusive
Street Team for the upcoming launch of THE PLEDGE on November 15th, 2011.

As the launch date gets closer and closer (OMG, it’s next month!), I’m looking for an elite group of Street Teamers to help me spread the word. And no, you don’t even need a BLOG to participate, just a love of free SWAG…and of course a willingness to hit the streets.


Here’s how it works:


First off, I will send you your official
THE PLEDGE Street Team care package which will include all kinds of goody giveaways. Once you get your package, my hope is that you will pass out some of that SWAG to schools, libraries, and your favorite bookstores. See if they might be willing to hang a poster or, you know, walk around with a sticker on their foreheads for a month...or at least long enough for you to snap a picture for me.

The only other requirement would be to pass out some bookmarks and stickers to at least ten teens you know (and if you are a teen or know some teens, um
hello, how easy would that be???). In general, you just have to be willing to say: “Check out this book, doesn’t it look good?” Or, better yet, if you’ve read it, how about something like: “This book totally rocked!” (THE PLEDGE haters need not apply.)

What’s in it for you, other than really cool stuff, you might ask???


First, not only do you get to call yourself an official
Street Team Member (and who wouldn't want to be a "street teamer"?!?!), but I’ll also send you your very own signed THE PLEDGE Passport. Who knows, there may even be a few extra Passports in your care package so you can recruit some Street Teamers of your own.

Here's just some of the swag you'll get!

To make things more interesting (as if that’s even possible!), I’ve decided to add a BONUS for my TOP FIVE loyal Street Teamers. Whoever convinces me that they’ve done the most work, with photos to prove it, will win a prize! I’m not talking about a $5.00 Starbucks card. I’m talking really good prizes with on and off switches. So get creative, Street Teamers, and you can WIN!

Sound like something you’d want to do? Okay, so here’s the deal, if you’re interested, leave a comment WITH your email address.
THIS WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE TO THE FIRST FIFTY PEOPLE TO COMMENT** (Sorry, U.S. ONLY). I’ll also be Tweeting this too, so as soon as I reach my FIFTY Street Teamers, I’ll update the post.

P.S. This is all on the trust system so if you decide to just get your SWAG and roll around in it, that’s fine too because I’ll probably never even know.


Probably...


I’m excited! Are you excited????


And...GO!



**
To be counted, comments must be left on the official blog at kimberlyderting.blogspot.com. (Don't leave them on Goodreads, Tumblr, Twitter, LiveJournal, or any other cross-posted site!)

UPDATE: WE HAVE OUR STREET TEAMERS! See the next post for details!!
