Hey gang - just wanted to give you some feedback on our advertising/merchandising efforts. Initial results of the Road ID has generated about $47.00 in revenue (goal is 100 a month).<br><br>
Amazon.com : $1.00 in revenue<br><br>
Store - $0.00 in revenue.<br><br>
Value Click - this month - $1.87<br><br>
With ads only on the front page - we need to find a way to promote the store and see if we can get members to start purchasing.<br><br><br>
Perhaps a contest? within your forums? First forum member to buy AND POST a picture of Kickrunner.com merchandise Gets Special Title Access!<br><br>
IF the winner already has that access, then we will DOUBLE their PM Capacity.<br><br><br>
Will this work? Can you guys promote this? One winner from EACH FORUM!<br><br><br>
Lets create some competition and excitement and try to sell some merchandise to keep our site up and free!<br><br><br>
Thanks<br><br><br>
Rich<br><br>
oh.. and member can only win in ONE Forum - must be an ESTABLISHED poster in that forum area - Suggestion Box not eligible - nor is planning room or the development Forum (temporary forum)<br><br>
thanks!

I like the idea but it sounds a little too obvious, plus I don't think anyone is just a expo person.<br><br>
I think we should really encourage the T-shirts for the meet ups?

It's INTENDED to be obvious. Remind them of the commitment to limit costs and not to load forum with ads etc....<br><br><br>
The only ad that is paying is Road ID and that has stopped - as expected... A surge until we get discussion around it - it'll start again.<br><br><br>
If we need to create additional product to drive some 'regular' purchases - beyond meetups, then let's do that too..<br><br>
$100 a month is what it costs - Running log development approaching $2500 total...<br><br>
any advise you have to offer or ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Someone posted this:<br><br><br>
What about making a shirt creating contest? Not only will that bring attention to the shirts, but it will bring out some free creativeness and interest in buying them.

Set up a time frame-- 2 weeks, 3 weeks, a month.<br>
"Design a shirt, use existing logo and go with that or create your own"<br>
Entries must be submitted as certain files for zazzle.com<br>
You can upload each design into Zazzle and see how it looks on a shirt<br>
take this image and make people vote on their favorites. then narrow it down until there is a winner. Winner gets free shirt and bragging rights.<br><br>
btw, the cookbook is SLOW cause we do not have enough recipes in the book <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> I posted a few times asking for recipes. I was going to give it a few more weeks, compile the rest and then post what else we need for the book.<br><br>
OH! and i saw a new ad. Not bad. It moves, but is not obscene.

K.. let's keep working this idea.. I like it...<br><br>
on the ad.. yeah, there's some movement - but I think I need to switch up the banners every couple of weeks. I HOPE I can find some static ones but until then, I gotta go with what I can get. I am limiting them to runner specific products though
