Will A Gift Make You Subscribe?

I have been subscribing to Time Magazine for a while, but a few months ago I decided not to subscribe anymore. I still enjoy Time, but I just haven’t got the time to read all the magazines. I receive one each week, and it’s packed with information. I always end up putting them on my desk, and now I have probably 20 magazines just waiting to be read.

So, I decided not to subscribe anymore, and a few weeks after my decisison, all the interesting stuff started to happen to me.

I have received many “new” offers, and they are all supposed to give me higher discounts, and they all say they are limited and that I have to hurry or I have to pay the regular price.

A few days ago I received another interesting offer from Time Magazine, it was one of those with massive discounts and they even gave me a free personal organiser if I continued my subscription on a yearly basis (or more).

Sounds cool, but will a gift make me subscribe?

    Hi Tim

    I am not sure if I follow you. Are you saying that my customized 404 page will not be showing in Google Reader or pages that are indexed by Google?

    I am not familiar with the Google 404 error pages at all 🙂
