Re: What do you want....from us?
 
I think I've been visiting Sowpub since 17 years. Don't visit it as often. But I have a lot of fondness for it. It's given me quite a few epiphanies.

No right or wrong answers, just tell us what you would like to see here at SowPub.com, OK?

Don't focus on the what. Focus on the who.

If you want to have an awesome party, don't focus on the food and the decorations. Focus on the most fun people you can invite.

How can you get the best folks you and Dien know to come and participate? How can you get them to invite their smartest friends?

Hi Gordon
Two things I would like. Practical money making ideas , tips that
can be found no where else. Also I would like to see many more members as the more members there are, the more ideas that are contributed.
I have not been visiting the site much recently because I see less and
less info being posted. This, of course, feeds on itself, the less people
that post, the less people visit which in turn leads to even less people posting.
So clearly, you need an influx, a massive increase in members. How?
I think encouraging political debates was not such a great idea, it distracts from what this is a MONEYMAKING forum.
Maybe Diem could give some ideas from his unusual businesses newsletter
and Gordon I have your chatteling report I know you have a ton of tips.
Prizes like this one are an EXCELLENT idea! What about a prize each week or
month for the best money idea! Prize does not have to be expensive. Could be a free subscription or a free report. That is just one possibility , I will try
to think of more.

Recently, we've added a significant number of new members, from my short lived newsletter (38 issues) and the July 4th special. It made us realize that what is old hat, and maybe even boring at this point to some of you old timers, it is fresh and new to people who have just discovered Seeds Of Wisdom forum.

Normally, I ask what do you want to individuals who have contacted me for either advice or whatever.

Since both Dien and I are focused on more offline activity, more than ever before, I want to ask you readers....

What would you like to read here at SowPub.com?

What do you want? A more open platform, invite more spammers? More specific discussion? More topics?

As time shrinks on our end, activity declines on this forum, we've cycled through these periods before.

This time, we ask you to help us take our new direction, and there will be a reward if you participate. I'm giving away either a new Kindle Fire or a new digital camera to someone who posts here with an answer to what they want. I'll put your names in a hat, and on Aug. 5th, Sat. I'll draw a winner.

If only one posts, then congrats on you, you have your choice. We'll discuss which one you want and I'll use my Amazon Prime account to get it to you in two days, so you should have it by Aug. 7th. Fair enough?

No right or wrong answers, just tell us what you would like to see here at SowPub.com, OK?

The reason we want your feedback especially newer members, we would not like to have this turn into a ghost town, like so many other forums have become, because honestly, this takes a little work, and we both have our plates full, and if need be, I clear sowpub from my plate in a NY minute.

Thanks for your participation.

PS. All new apprentice slots are taken, unless you have already contacted me. And yes, the Biz-Ops and JV's in the July 4th report are still on the table, but fading fast.

Just had another hot idea. Sowpub could certainly use some publicity
and more visibility in the social media. Here is how to do that.
I remember a post I did a while back and when I googled the
title of the post it was on page one on google.
So sowpub has clout in the search engines.
Warrior forum offers its members blogs and the content of those blogs
usually end up high on google. Why not offer sowpub members free
blogs. Maybe after 20 posts or some other criteria. If the blogs are
exciting and original enough it could bring in social media interest,
viral maybe! Also people will be incentivised to post to get their
free blog.

Great post! If you can't beat FB, join 'em! I love the idea of using one to build [reload] the other!

Thank you :)

Unfortunately, life has become a lot busier as I live a nomadic lifestyle and travel a lot. As I can't work more than 4 hours a day, had to cut out forums. And so don't come to sowpub as often.

Will try and drop in once in a while.

Sundays, get a little Ankesh in your life. I do!.

One of my favorite newsletters, short, sweet and always interesting.

https://zenstrategies.com/

The recent one, HAVE PEOPLE CHANGED, is worth it, could be a hotsheet by itself.

I know you are having fun Ankesh, so your time here is appreciated, and so are your ZEN STRATEGIES, thank you.

Thanks for ASKing, Gordon,

I like to read content similar to George W. Haylings, but more in depth.
[George W. Haylings, "Lifetime of Homework"]

You did something similar to this back at the end of the year 2016
into the beginning of 2017.
I believe it was your '52 card deck' that began at the end of December 2016.

Thanks,

Christopher
