I got nixed by Internet Brands - apparently, they won't sell advertising to sites they deem to be competitors.

On the plus side, Rennlist thinks this wee podunk joint is a competitor. We're very scare. Much fear.

RL has 200,000 subscribers, and we have 150ish. I think they're safe from our run at global interwebs domination for another week or two...

I nominate Kim Jong-Schnell for the position of Glorious Leader!






Please note it has nothing to do with anti-aircraft artillery that he currently has me "inspecting".

Preachin' to the choir... but, you gotta ask... What are we doing that is any different from other forums? How can we make the forum experience better and unique?

I spent 7+ years in retail and always noticed that the stores that were doing well, were active. Nobody wants to go to a place were there aren't any shoppers. You feel uncomfortable - like you're being watched or something. You think... I must be wasting my time because cause there ain't nobody here and so the deals must be someplace else. Good marketing gets them in door, but what keeps them in (and keeps them coming back) is even more important.

Go ahead and stand right over there. I want to ensure the rifling looks good from that end of the range. Er, from over there.

I would say RR 2018 could be a big boost for the site. Print some decals to stick on every car, reference that RennRun 2018 is being organized and sponsored in part by 996 Outpost. Add 996outpost.com to the t-shirts, pens, and other swag you want to bring to Vegas. We need B3 or Doc to make us a really unique logo to brand all of the Outpost swag. Stylize the 911 or add outpost into the outline of the 996, or into the outline of the 996 headlight.

Based on all the activation I've been doing today I would say "Setup RennRun" was the correct answer.

There is a decent following on the 996 facebook group page. Maybe throw a plug into there?
