    Buy stocks and support me!
    It's tough times with economic crisis in my club, injuries and lack of sponsors. I have therefore created a new support project, which enables firms, associations, clubs and individuals to buy stocks "in me" and get exclusive videos, signed T-shirts and publicity and promotional and opportunities for prizes etc.

    If you look at the post, it states $200 each

    Very innovative approach as always Laybourn. A career in marketing beckons should you retire away from badminton!

    On the site www.laybourn.net/stocks you can choose the amount and buy and pay directly via paypal.

    Each stock is 200$ per piece.

    druss,

    Numerous singers have had IPOs in the last decade or so and they have proven it to be quite an effective and successful formula:cool:. Do a search and you will know how it is done and that it has been going on for a while now:).

    I see... still a little weird to me though. As stated as well, the return has to be worth the investment. I can see it on a singer where there's the possibility of a monetary return though.

    True, big big stars or established singers does make sense for investors...

    However, if Thomas ventures into something new (even the often exploited sporting apparels), then there is a silver lining for ROI:D.

    Think Rene ''the alligator'' LACOSTE:cool:! In retrospect, Bjorn Borg didn't make it in his sports apparel venture (I heard from my dad):(.

    This is not "normal" stocks, this is more of a very small sponsorship/support for me as a player, and at the same time get some fun and attractive things along with it.

    The things you get is:
    Exclusive videos with news, tips & tricks
    1 ticket per stock in min. 2 competitions a year
    Logo or name on my sites (most attractive to companies offcourse)
    Signed "i support Thomas Laybourn T-shirt"
    Signed autographcards

    yes, i saw and understand... perhaps another idea to make it work better.

    the thing is Usd 200 is kinda 'large' for many B'cers. me included. ( if 2 to 3 yrs ago then it's small to me ).. so,if you can sorta lower the amount, say Usd 20 , Usd 50...not necessarily need to give so many things away. probably,just as a 'support' gesture. that, perhaps many will 'support' you. even in return of nothing at all.

    Usd 20 or 50 to me is not a big issue..afterall,it's only once a year,not every month ...

    so,maybe at Usd 50, a signed T-shirt is not possible,maybe a kinda momento ?

    Usd 100,slightly more things.or maybe just a T-shirt.

    and then Usd 200.. your 'stuff'... lol...

    Maybe or a work out with PANDA POWER could bring in more positive Sponsorship! Is it Dink-A-lot, the Badminton passionate entrepreneur?
