Hey, what are some things you'd do different on the forum? Any ideas on what we could do more of?
Frankly, I think it's pretty good just as it is. I think that at times we could temper our language a bit more - I'm as guilty as anyone, but if we had our wives/daughters reading some of this, it'd be pretty raw.
Y'know....these "Regional Meets" we do....what's the chance of some of the forum sponsors coming up w/door prizes for 'em, even if it would be gift or discount coupons?
The issue with meets is I can only really plan for the Austin area ... I don't know a whole lot about the other areas.
Ah....but you could perhaps set up criteria by which they could get some "goodies" for their meets?
I could talk to them and see ... worse they can tell me is no.
Sell 'em on being a "featured" quarterly event - promo 'em here, with a special section set up for the "Meet of the Quarter", with pics for the latest one, and a section for the plans for the upcoming one.
Another thing...Group Buys. It would HAVE to be run by someone that can be trusted, and a tight rein kept on it - but a GB in conjunction with some of our sponsors could be a dual benefit. Non-sponsors could be done as well - a good turn out could encourage them to become sponsors.
I have a really good idea about how we can solve the group buys ... I'll send you a PM.
Easier via email...I'll get it faster.
The thing is, we need to get regular meets and people coming out regularly before anyone is going to want to "sponsor" us with giveaways. So far, most of the local meetups we've tried to setup (which granted haven't been a whole lot lately), most people come up with excuses and don't show.
