Obviously a community like IM Report Card relies on user participation, and lots of it.
We’re just out of beta and overall we think things are going pretty well. We’ve cleaned up a lot of the early “issues”, and many users are posting great comments and content.
From the moment the idea for this site was conceived, we knew the biggest challenge we would face is getting users to take the time out of their busy lives to post comments and reviews on all of the products, services and people they have experience with …
… but initially we honestly didn’t give it a whole lot of thought because we knew that it’s a “problem” we can solve. In the early days we just focused on building out the site.
We’ve only just begun, and have lots more to do, but the basic infrastructure of the site is now in place, and we’re starting to think more and more about the “bigger picture”.
And a big part of that is encouraging more and more user participation.
We have lots and lots of ideas that we’re tossing around, but of course we would love to get your input on this issue as well.
…especially if you’re an experienced but busy Internet marketer who has lots of great and helpful comments bottled up in your head simply because you’re just too busy to post as much as you’d like, or post at all for that matter.
Right now, these are the benefits of participating …
- You can earn IM Report Card credits, and a little extra cash over time
- You can promote whatever you want in your “signature” below all your comments
- Your comments have the potential to really help a lot of people
(There’s another benefit in that the more YOU participate, the more it encourages others to participate, which makes the site more useful for YOU – but we won’t count that!)
So, what else would encourage you to post comments about ALL of the products, services, people and/or biz-opps that you have experience with?
More money? More exposure for yourself and your “stuff”? Something else?
We’d love to hear your thoughts – especially if the only thing holding you back is a lack of time and/or you think that it’s simply not worth your time to post more.
