The Story So Far ... ASH LONG writes: * This time last month I E-mailed you with an urgent request to help me save this Media Flash business. For those suffering similar hard times, the news is good. It can be done in a month! * I was $85,000 in debt in establishing this free E-Newspaper you receive free every Monday. The debt was caused by its unexpected, rapid growth from 0 to 6400 subscribers in just 12 months. By no means have we raised the entire amount needed, but more than half of the debt is now under control. We are speedily paying the rest. We have negotiated some seriously good advertising business for the year ahead. So, we are not out of the woods just yet, but the future of Media Flash is assured. Thank you.
My Way Of Saying Thanks To You * We have been swamped by supportive people taking out $50 subscriptions to Media Flash. They say we are producing an important and energetic weekly service to Australia's media people. In addition to MF, they also now receive the weekly Media Flash Confidential, and have been each given $550 worth of totally free advertising. Plus there are more free bonus subscriber valuable benefits over the coming 12 months. Not bad for a $50 investment. I would like you to become a Media Flash subscriber - and will give you plenty for doing so this week.
Here's The Book - Yours Free * My new book, Long Shots, is being published this month. You can have one of the first copies - before it's pulled off the shelves! Long Shots rips the lid off the Australian media, it names names, and will be a talking point in the industry over summer. It will be selling for $50 a copy. * You will read the previously untold insider's story of Australian radio's Cash For Comment scandal. Discover the real deals in some of those Board Room takeover plays. Find out the true skeletons-in-the-closet stories behind some of Australia's top media and showbiz names. * There are already hundreds of forward orders for this book. You can have your own FREE advance copy. Long Shots includes the stories of several thousand people and companies - check out the names below. I've included the book's interim Index for your interest. Chances are you'll find your own name - or someone you know in the media. This is not a directory ... it's a tell-all, 'best-seller' book.
How To Get Your Free Book * We will post your FREE copy of Long Shots to you. All you have to do is become a Media Flash subscriber this week for $50. You get all the other Media Flash subscriber freebies too, including $550 worth of free ads. It's good business. * You can organise your Media Flash $50 subscription in a number of convenient ways. You help a Australian small business, and you help yourself too! * E-MAIL: Hit the reply button on this E-Mail. List your name, address and credit card details. We'll apply a $50 charge to your card, and send confirmation details. Your free book will soon be on its way by post. * FAX: Type out a quick fax and send it to Freefax 1-800 231 311. List your name, address and card details. We'll confirm promptly and send the book. * WEB: Go to www.mediaflash.candela.com.au and fill out the details. Bang, you're a subscriber! And you will receive the free book. * MAIL: Send your $50 cheque to Media Flash, PO Box 1014, Research, 3095. Tell us where to send the free book.
