So - The development phase of my TSSN project is complete for the moment. Of course - we as forum owners/admins/moderators understand quite well that a forum's development is never really quite finished, but instead is constantly in a phase of evolving for betterment. This concept is one reason I've always liked the concept of forums - you can appreciate constantly evolving your online space for the better, same as you'd like for your own life. And I'm rambling LOL.... Anyway - The 2nd phase of my project has began: The promotional phase. This TSSN project is meant to work in tandem with my Facebook page and group. I'll be promoting via Twitter and Instagram as well. I have high hopes for this project, even though it's really gotten off to a wee bit of a slow start due to lack of funding... Which is the reason for this post. Ultimately I'd like to make TSSN an official recognized 501(c)3 organization. I'd like to blitz Facebook with boosted posts. I'd like to run a decent Adsense campaign. I have a few contests in mind that will require prizes either monetary or physical products. I have all these ideas ... Only thing is the funds to make it happen are lacking. So I need suggestions on how I can reel in official contributors/affiliates to donate to my cause. I'm composing a letter right now and will be sending it to a slew of potential contributors/affiliates. Perhaps you all may have additional suggestions on getting companies, groups and/or individuals to open up their wallets in support of your websites/forums/businesses?... Yes? Okay ... Let's hear 'em then. Thanks! J.
