It's a free, fun and an educational way to learn about marketing. Don't miss out.

The online game from The Corn And Soybean Digest started trading Jan. 3, but you've still got plenty of time to join your fellow marketers.

You can't lose, but you can practice your marketing skills and win valuable prizes.

Prizes include a year's use of a Massey Ferguson combine or tractor, one of two Mid-Tech lightbar guidance systems or one of two complete computer systems provided by Syngenta Crop Protection.

Players with the highest average selling price at the end of the game will be named winners.

Everyone wins, though, by improving their marketing skills. Last year, less than half of our readers wrote a marketing plan, but most admit they would have been more successful if they had.

Sign up by going to www.MarketMaxx.net. You'll also have access to the Marketing Plan Wizard. The step-by-step, fill-in-the blanks process will give you a completed marketing plan in just a few minutes. And you can test drive your wildest trading theories without paying margin calls.

So visit www.MarketMaxx.net and sign up today. You won't win if you don't play. You'll also get a bi-weekly marketing e-newsletter to help you track how the game is doing.
