That's the promise, rather, the bribe of Agency 2.0, "a crowdfunding PR agency" that represents TouchPico.
Via email, the firm reached out to "influential blogger[s] within the consumer electronics space" with this enticement: "Given your influence online, we wanted to give you a free TouchPico on delivery if you feature TouchPico and 7 people pledge as a result"
Here's the really sad thing: I did not receive that email. Apparently I wield no influence in this business. But you already knew that.
Here's the email:

Subject: Turn Anything Into 80" Touchscreen
Hi [not Julie]
I noted you as an influential blogger within the consumer electronic space and wanted to reach out to you about TouchPico, a hugely successful campaign on Indiegogo right now.
In short, TouchPico will turn any surface into a giant 80 inch tablet-like touchscreen. It is pretty awesome...
You can check out more info at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/touchpico-turn-any-surface-into-a-touch-screen
With that, I wanted to make you a special offer to write a feature and share it on your social media if you are open to it. Given your influence online, we wanted to give you a free TouchPico on delivery if you feature TouchPico and 7 people pledge as a result.
Again with your influence and followers online, you are almost guaranteed one as normal people sharing with their friends have gotten more.
For more details on how the tracking works, simply click the Thank You Program link at the top of the Indiegogo page linked above...
Let us know if you have any questions or post a feature, as we will share it on our social media for you too.
Thanks again, Chris Olenik & the TouchPico Team
