Thanks ayebea for the support, Anyone else like this idea?
We can ask Will to manage the fund and the ad placements, fund will be collected by donations, I am sure those who have made some money in the Marketplace are willing to help out
Please give more inputs, thanks!
I believe that he is speaking about pooling money to post advertisements for Net Builders on places other than Net Builders itself. This wouldn't be for individual members to post ads advertising themselves and their services and sites on the forum, but to heighten the awareness of Net Builders to the rest of the internet (also known as the "Unaware"). Correct me if I am sadly mistaken.
On that topic, I'm sure that this would be quite the idea, DotComBum. However in this day and age, who would donate enough to even gain an extra five to ten members per day to the forum? Besides, some of the best contributors of information to the forum are those who are searchin for it already.
There's other things that you can do besides money to help the forum grow. 1) For instance, send emails with personal invitations to people that you have done business with in the past. Send invites to all the paypal emails that you have paid for services. 2) Donate your signature link on other forums to advertise. 3) Do business here at NB. Post services and buy from other members.
I am going to give my sig links to NB in 2 biggest forums until NB has reached 10,000+ members
BTW let me know whether the donation drive will go on as I am prepared to contribute some $$$$
