It's so cool and exciting for all of us to have the buzz back. We want this site to grow and help people with questions and be a community for those of us that have similar interests.

We all want this place to grow and thrive and it certainly looks like it will. It you look at our Alexa Rank it is already starting to show up and the place isn't even a week old.

Before people plot out creative ideas on how we should get the word out, let's post some ideas and see what might be our best options. Some may cause far more headaches and drama than others so we may want to steer away from those prior to doing them.

Thanks,
Taylor

Have a link put up on orbitcast or use one of your ads as a DRC ad (not sure how much $ that involves).

Put something on the TSS site so people going there can be directed here. Maybe run your online help department (if you have one) through a subsection on here.

I like the idea of the Orbitcast Banner. If someone makes a good one I'll swap it out for a week with one of the TSS-Radio ads.

The Banner should be 170 X 430.
RoscoRyan this is up your alley :Smiley_wink:

A rotating banner is something we could put up on TSS, but let me think about that one. So far I'm down for swapping 1 TSS banner for a DRC one on Orbitcast.

An easy way is to make references to links and give credit for information found on the fourm.

Go to Orbitcast or Siriusbuzz and make comments. Most other news sites allow for comments. If you make a statement and back it up with a URL All you are doing is giving reference to your statement. Normally they let those into the comment because you are backing up your statments.

Consider it done.

In fact, I would be willing to create some different banners in standard sizes which we could post here, and people could distribute or use elsewhere to promote the site.

I see my comment in Orbitcast made it up with a reference to this forum. It's in the XM layoff article.

Report: Possible XM layoffs to begin tomorrow - Orbitcast

I first read about this on the new Digital Radio Central forum.
http://www.digitalradiocentral.com/siriusxm-soundwave-cafe/206-layoffs-coming-xm.html
The fact that the employees found out by accidentlially going to their benefits site is really sad. Seeing a "Planned" layoff is almost as bad as your Security badge not working to let you know you are no longer wanted!
It's time for the bailout money to be used to save some jobs!

With Tom Taylor and the TSS radio staff behind this forum, is only natural that it will succeed :bigthumbup:

BTW maybe it might be a good idea to register drc.com or something shorter than digitalradiocentral.com Reason I say this is because as the site grows DRC will be the way this site will be referred to. just my .002 cents. :)

We tried. It's already gone.

I'm sure a nice placed email to Bubba/Brent would get them to mention it on their show. That would be the quickest and easiest way to get some attention. I know you warned about calls but he promotes other sites and loves "Tom Taylor" so I am sure it would be done.

I will mention it to Bubba. Going to the Bubbapalooza Show in Detroit this Friday. I'm not sure Bubba is in a mood to promote forums right now though. He hasn't even mentioned his own forum in weeks.
