The other raffles took my advice on being upfront in the post about the questions I knew would be asked otherwise.
This raffle decided not to before the ad went live, hence my advice to email them the questions that I knew would be coming in comments.
You are right about that. I should've taken your advice.
My thought process was, that being that I plan to run a few more ads, I figured, that I would add a bit more info in a future ad. Had I known the importance of putting the info right away, I would've done so.
You live and learn.

I've done this rodeo for more than a decade. You need to know when to trust people.

As I said, I'd also have made the price $125 over $129. Far more attractive price point.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Or a $770 price point :)

Didn't see that, but I could still be right :)

$5400 + 2x$200 = $5800 minimum raised. I'm assuming average is closer to $100.

In my opinion, you will sell much more tickets if you are more transparent. 
The communication seems a little off.

FWIW, the vast majority of DDMS raffle ads initially try to give as little info as possible and we pressure them to be more forthcoming for their own benefit.

Exactly why I designed the first raffle to be as transparent as possible and the results blew me away.

Thanks for updating.

Please continue to do so.

Also, can any Boyozucker's who plan on sniping the raffle identify themselves now?

I think the second did better, all things considered .
