Should set up a drip email campaign for new users. After they join, trickle out onsite links cool videos that have been made by members here, every day for a week/9 days/whatever, right into their email inboxes. Several services can do this.


Or just get a "Best of..." thread that new users are redirected to.

I am curious as to how you did this lol. I'm impressed.

How soon are you wanting to move forward with changes to the site? Is this going to be in the future or are you looking to start making changes soon?

We need to try and get some partners that will sponsor our video contests, etc. Beyond's presence with other Halo related things seems to be really doing well for them. Would allows us to giveaways as well, and those always get good attention. Not sure about retention rate of those types of views, but still. Social media has to be a big thing.

I've been talking to this guy for about the past week.

He is super cool. I've been talking with him about a partnership with him and THF. I am trying to get him to post all of the entries to the contest to his channel. In return we help promote his channel.

I now own the site, so it's been moved to my own server, and I have added myself to the adminstrators list. I have full admin privileges and access to the server itself, so we're no longer locked out of making changes.

Email campaigns are a great idea, and something I'd given some previous thought to. There's a large database of inactive users that I'd like to reach out to, so I definitely think this is something that will be done. Whether it comes before the site rebuild or after, I'm not sure yet.

I'm looking to rebuild the site on a newer platform, and that work will get underway as soon as I can spare the time. In terms of changes that can be made in the meantime, as in, here on Vbulletin before the rebuild, I'm going to be heavily depending on the staff and motivated members to help implement changes that you'd like to see.

We need one last cameo from Z for shits and giggles. Some parting words.

If you need ideas on how to get this going, let me know. I work for a private software company specializing in email marketing for real estate. My roles are support, design and troubleshooting users' custom HTML through email so that it's compliant across all mobile, desktop, and web-based email clients as well as assessing the 'spammyness' of all content, plain text/HTML included.

Do y 'all use AWeber or MailChimp? I was thinking of a specific service, Drip, that's built on MailChimp.

And yeah, getting copy to the point where it actually works is a tough task, especially in email marketing. But it seriously has some of the best conversion rates you'll see in any form of marketing.
