(Ping! Zine) – Customer focused website hosting company 34SP.com has embraced the excitement surrounding the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup by creating a special promotion which is determined by the outcome of the matches. The FIFA World Cup is the worldwide championship for the sport of football – also known as soccer in the United States. The championship is held every four years, and has been a worldwide institution since the first tournament was held in in 1930. This year’s tournament is being held in South Africa beginning on June 11, 2010 and continuing through to the final on July 11, 2010. The World Cup is the most popular single sporting event in the world, with more than 1.5 billion people viewing a single popular match. That’s more than 20% of the world’s population viewing an event at once.
Being based in Manchester, UK (which is incidentally home to both Manchester United and Manchester City football clubs) the staff at 34SP.com contains numerous football fans. The web hosting company therefore created a special promotional offer for the duration of the World Cup which bases its discounts on the performance of England in the matches. Here is how the promotion works: For every goal that England score, customers receive an additional 10% off any of the following 34SP.com web hosting products – Professional Hosting, Reseller Hosting, Business Hosting, or VPS Hosting. The special offer applies to new accounts only, and is cumulative for the duration of the World Cup tournament.
As an example, if England score 2 goals – customers will receive 20% off their web hosting order. If England score 5 goals – the discount is 50% off. If England accumulate 10 or more goals during the World Cup tournament, the first month of hosting is free (100% off).
Stuart Melling, co-founder of 34SP.com explained the motivation for creating a web hosting promotion around the World Cup, ”England has a longstanding tradition of embracing the World Cup and all the fanfare that surrounds it. While England has only won the World Cup final once, every tournament is another chance to bring home the trophy to the true home of football. We have some great attacking options in this year’s squad, so I expect plenty of goals and some fantastic discounts for our our customers!”.
To keep customers apprised of the current scoring totals, discounts, and upcoming matches, 34SP.com has created a special website page that presents the current data for easy viewing.
