DVD's for Delegates Dropped the Ball--UPDATEDSubmitted by Hobbit on Sat, 09/06/2008 - 12:54
At the RP Training I received a copy of the DVD's for Delegates DVD but I was not able to watch it until now. On Tuesday Sept 2nd during the breakfast many Delegates who were not RP supporters said they dislike that DVD but did not say why but did say that they did not realize it was about RP until near the end. After seeing the packaging, which was impeccable, and watching it I now understand why.
On the cover read:
* “URGENT INFORMATION”
*”DELEGATE FACTS & CONVENTION HISTORY”
*”YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES EXPLAINED”
-“Local Hot Spots”
The Problem was that the DVD did not deliver on any of these claims and instead gave SHOCK AND AWE. The packaging was great and information contained on the DVD was important but we lost HUGE credibility by not delivering on the claims on the packaging. This was a huge opportunity that was lost.
Say what you are going to do, and DO what you said. This DVD did neither of these things. UNBELIEVABLE!

If at least they provided the information they claimed to be providing, then there would have been a greater chance the DVD would have been watched more than once and may be worth holding on too, if the other information was also cleverly presented. Obviously a lot of planning went into the packaging, it is too bad we could not deliver at the minimum what we claimed on it. I am only offering my opinion after watching it today. I as I said, many delegates who were not RP supporters made same negative comments about it; I AM a RP supporter and I will probably still vote for him, but I have to agree with them on this one. Lets do better next time and not repeat the same mistakes—take this as my constructive criticism---please do not take it personal.]
