Big Fish Games Update

Well here we are 22 days since my last update on my quest to become an MLM BIG FISH. On January 1st I had 260 in my organization. As of this writing that number has inched up to 945.

Here is part of a recent press release that summarizes the rewards program:

SEATTLE, October 24, 2006 –

Big Fish Games™, a leading developer and distributor of casual games, today announced the unprecedented success of My Big Fish Games™, with more than 125,000 members signing up for a personal Game Space in the first 45 days since its launch. This early surge in membership has already resulted in more than 80,000 new Big Fish Games customers as a direct result of invitations from these first 125,000 members to visit their new Game Spaces. My Big Fish Games,( is an innovative destination for casual gamers to create a personal Game Space, write reviews, share favorite games with friends, and earn cash rewards.

“My Big Fish Games has proven to be lucrative for both our customers and our company,” said Paul Thelen, founder and CEO of Big Fish Games. “More than half of the 80,000 new casual game customers generated by this program visited our site for the first time within the last 15 days, showing the impressive rate of acceleration created by the network effect of friends inviting friends. This model is very powerful; it is changing the value chain of the casual games industry. We enable our customers to share their enthusiasm for casual games and share in the financial upside of this explosively growing industry. Ultimately we are creating a new customer acquisition engine, our customers themselves.”

I did not know a thing about Casual Gaming before signing up for this, here a few industry and companie facts:

*The 'casual gamer' is one of the fastest-growing segments of Internet users, with more than 60% of them being female.
*85% are over the age of 30
*300 Million casual gamers are online today
*That number is expected to grow to over 1 billion in the next 3 to 4 years
*Big Fish Games has distributed over 100 million games since its inception.
*Big Fish Games is one of the top 10 games sites world wide.

So I am shooting for 1000, and will post it here when it happens! At the rate I had been building this I did not expect to hit anywhere near this until early summer, but in Network Marketing things can change with just a few sign-ups.
