Win a Poken for BlogHer! – ONE MORE DAY! + Video {GIVEAWAY CLOSED}

::GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED::  Winner-Liz@thisfullhouse

Okay, okay, I’m giving everyone one more day to enter or submit extra entries (by tweeting, blogging, or subscribing) for the Geisha Poken. I’ve also made a video to show you how they work. (see below)

icon-franky-poken Meet Franky, he is my Poken.  I plugged Franky in the USB drive of my MAC computer, and then added my social and business information, like my address, websites, Twitter address, and more.  Once all of my information is stored inside Franky, I can then take him out into the world and meet other Pokens.  When I meet a new contact with a Poken, Franky and the new Poken simply perform a “high five” (or “high four”) to transfer our information.  Cool, huh?  Looks like Franky will be coming with me to BlogHer ’09.

icon-geisha-poken Meet Geisha.  She just may be YOUR new Poken to take with you to BlogHer ’09!   Wouldn’t it be neat to carry all of your social and business information in a neat little character, like Geisha?  Learn more about how Pokens work at www.startpoken.com.  Wanna know how you can win Geisha?

Check out this video that shows you how Pokens work, made by me.  Don’t laugh:

    I need a poken so I have extra room to carry all the SWAG I’m giving away. A poken in my pocket leaves more room for things to give OTHER people! :)

    I need a Poken because this is my 4th BlogHer and I already have a drawer FULL of business cards. I love meeting new people and if having a Poken helps me find new friends, that would make me very happy! Plus Geisha is TOO cute.

    I need a Geisha Poken to take with me to BlogHer because I firmly believe that I was a geisha in a former life. The lead geisha of course or Madam, if you will. I am much better at the scheduling and managing part.

    Anyway, I don’t have a Poken yet and would love to have one to play with. ME LOVES TECHNOLOGY!

    My blog is just two weeks old yesterday! And I already have 51 posts! My fingers are becoming cramped and gnarled already, Poken would keep me from having to re-type business cards and URL’s and right now anything that saves me extra typing is a shrewd investment. If I don’t win, (which will make me cry) and I have to buy one, is Poken a tax write off?

    I love the Geisha design, she will sit on top of the book Memoirs of a Geisha when not in use. I would display my Poken with pride!

    I need one because, let’s face it, how often do you come home from these conferences and let a stack of business cards just sit around for days (weeks? months?) on end. A Poken will help me get organized right away.

    Why do I need (or should I say ‘want’) one? Because I don’t use a smart phone or other handy device for electronically jotting down contact information. To top it off, I’m afraid that any business cards that I hand out will get swept into a pile to be entered into someones database when or if they ever find time to enter it all. If I use a Poken, then it’s easy, brainless and my contacts won’t have an excuse for not having my information!

    Okay, I’m here. Apparently I NEED Geisha. Apparently I need a Poken period. Apparently it’s the new ‘in’ thing to have and well I hate to miss out on anything ha ha.

    I hope I’m going to meet you at BlogHer. I’ll be making a point of hunting you down :)

    I need a Poken for BlogHer because I can pretty much guaranty that I will forget to get business cards until a day or two before. And then I’ll race around trying to get it done, and forget to do other things instead (like feed my kids). But if I have the Poken, I can just say “Screw the cards, only people cool enough to have a Poken get my info!”

    I need a poken because everyone will laugh at me if I’m the only loser who doesn’t have one. It will be like sixth grade all over again, when I was the only girl without fluorescent pink leg warmers. And it is my first BlogHer, so that would be really humiliating.

    Thanks!

    I need a Poken because I’m a gadget fiend. If other people have one, I want one, too. Plus, I always stick business cards in various pockets and then they end up all over my house.

    I haven’t even ordered them for BlogHer yet.
