how can we get more activity?
« on: February 23, 2014, 08:39:20 PM »
Hey guys.. Just looking for suggestions on how we can get the forum lively?
Would be nice to have some good activity on the board here. 
Any suggestions?

I believe that once Spring rolls around and we can get a meet together, it may liven things up around here. Do we have a corresponding Facebook page for this site? As a lot of people use social media, it may be a way to expand the community.

I am a part of a couple car pages for Alberta, I'll be sure to advertise on those pages accordingly. Maybe get some hits!

Advertise on social media? Or even make Decals that fellow members can put on their cars.

I think decals are good start, people will see us driving with them and eventually they will find this site.  Keeping this site active will allow search engines to pop them up when people start searching for groups (that is how I found e90post.com).  Fortunately there is many bmw's on Alberta roads, unfortunate part is that many people are not into the groups :(  I think time will eventually bring people on here and this will grow :)  Anyway, great idea setting this up, I am glad I found it :)

Thanks for the kind words Greg.  We're also in the process of designing cards which we can distribute to members.  They're basically a business card that you place on someone's windshield or driver's window who you think may be interested in the forum.

^ I Love that idea of business type cards. Great way for advertising the community. Is there a status update on that idea?

We're working on that too Isa.   I posted a couple videos.  I'm going to look at my other DIYs I made for other forums and post them as well.  Once we have enough we can start splitting them up between body styles ..etc.
