The Official Sweepstakes Convention Video - Order Information and a Chance to Win a Copy!
The Official Sweepstakes Convention Video - Jeff Crosno

Jeff is a great guy. He's one of the pillars of the sweepstakes convention that everyone just expects to see each year. Jeff hosts and produces (along with professional videographer James Perry) the official video of the annual Sweepstakes Convention. A very accomplished and successful sweeper himself, and a natural TV host, Jeff has the insight and passion that only a true sweeper could bring to such a video.

The videos are very well-made and he does a fantastic job trying to get as many sweepers on the video as possible. The videos are a perfect way to remember the fun times and great people at any sweepstakes convention. A true labor of love, I don't believe Jeff sells anywhere near enough of these videos to turn any kind of profit. Therefore, I think its especially important that we all support Jeff (like the other vendors and sponsors) in order to ensure that these videos will be available to all of us at future sweepstakes conventions.

The Official Sweepstakes Convention Video is available in VHS or DVD format for $34.95 (shipping included) and includes highlights of the convention speakers, vendors, seminars and plenty of interviews of sweepers sharing their winning stories, strategies and winning tips.

Also available is the Unedited Convention Video that features the full, unedited video of the entire convention including all of the speakers, presentations, games/gameshows, the sweepstakes editor panel, the skits, the convention videos etc., including the presentation of this year's keynote speaker Jeffrey Feinman ("Mr. Sweepstakes" himself, founder of Ventura Associates) as well as his question and answer session, Judy McCurdy's (SweepingAmerica) Winner Ambush presentation, Steve D'Adolf's always popular Internet Sweeping Tips, and the Sweepstakes Editor Newsletter Panel featuring Brent Riley*** (that's me) and Kerrie Bloss (kbsocial) from OLS, Judy McCurdy from SweepingAmerica, Patti Osterheld from SweepSheet, Carol McLaughlin from This N' That Sweepstakes Stuff and Al Sayward, Jr. from The Sweeper Times, and many, many others.

*** Just a little truth in advertising- I honestly didn't do very well or say a whole lot on the Sweepstakes Editor Newsletter Panel. To be perfectly honest, I was like a deer in headlights up there. I just don't want anybody to order the Unedited Convention Video expecting to see and hear a whole lot from me on the panel. On the other hand, it might be good for a laugh, I made a pretty good crack about picturing everyone naked.

The Unedited Convention Video is also available in VHS or DVD format for $44.95 (shipping included) or you can order both the Official Sweepstakes Convention Video and the Unedited Convention Video together for $74.95 which also includes shipping.

To order, please send your payment (payable to J.D. Crosno), choice of video and format, and your shipping name and address to:

J.D. Crosno
2921 Carters Grove
O'Fallon, MO 63368

I *believe* Jeff has produced the official video for each year's sweepstakes convention since the very beginning (that's 19 years), so he most likely could provide videos from past conventions if you are interested.
