Thanks for the roughly 700 votes we got. We really appreciate the support and stab for the design and colors. There are a lot of really good entries no where even near the fog so I can't really complain. We try to make these as good as possible in the time allotted... even when Woot proves time and time again through either the derby or dailies that it's actually detrimental to your chances. When we do print we're usually reckoned in a week. Drakxxx and I have both submitted some dailies recently that got declined. But that bootleg KoolAid was pretty sweet! haha. No worries. We'll undoubtedly still make designs like this. We never learn but then again, it's not all about money. Man, I need a new alias where I just design for the money and hang my head in shame as I endorse my checks.... HHHmmmmmm...
Brand loyalty and marketing? You should probably start a CD/Draxxx Twitter and use the followers.
Interestingly, in addition to the choices that the voters made (which is clearly a problem), the other truth is that 700 votes, or 1000 votes, or even 2000 votes is actually not a lot of votes when you consider the depth of the Internet and the popularity of Woot. Hell, if I had a design I could probably get at least half of the 300 people on my Facebook friends list to vote for it, then get about 100 pity votes and 100 random votes and suddenly I'm almost up in the fog. Even on the best vote days, these are very low vote counts. A little bit of online social media marketing and suddenly you can catapult up there with ease.
