I have an idea.
This may sound corny so bear with me. I was thinking, what if the forum made business cards for the members. All they would have to pay for is a packet of blank business cards and shipping and handling and the forum could mail them. It wouldn't cost that much, or you could put the file online and whoever wants to make them can.
One of our members goes to an antique store and leaves a few of the business cards there on the counter. A few days later a vendor comes in and sees the card, takes it, and applies it. He joins the forum and starts selling some things on the forum. Now he is helping our members get things. Then lets say he buys a few books through the forum, now the forum is getting a small commission off of that sale. Lets just say that he knows some other vendors and passes the cards to them, more business, more support.
I used to have a small computer business. I made business cards from Microsoft Word. I was getting calls from people who just happened to pick up a card. Then I would get calls from their family because I did a good job. It is just another way that our members can help the forum.
Plus, we can use our own images for the cards. Here is an idea that I was throwing around. The side with the helmet is the front, the side with the soldier walking is the back. Don't be fooled by the pictures, the cards are normal business card size.
If you want, leave some suggestions, comments, but please...no criticism. I am just trying to help the forum.
I have put my information as an example.
