My community site is mainly visited by graphic designers, advertising creatives and product designers, secondarily by architects and artists.To DKing`s point:
I like the idea about contextual marketing. However, the only idea that pops into my head there is to place amazon (associate account) books and other products in those posts. I`ve done that in the past but it really doesn`t do much of anything.
Are there other ways to use the idea of contextual marketing in posts?To Craig`s point:
I think I do help to promote many peoples products, reputations and exhibitions for example, but how would you suggest monetizing the "Agent" idea? We have a simple gallery included in the site, but I was going to offer that for free.To Bartimus` Point:
Premium services is a great idea for the next phase of the site I think, post launch. I`m not sure what premium services I could offer them. Besides maybe creating a store and selling on their behalf and taking a commission. IMDB had a tempting and clever idea when they added their "star meter", but only allow premium members to see why it went "up" or "Down". Simple and effective. What could a graphic or product designer want as a premium service comparable to such a proposition?
Would it be counter productive to ask recruiters to pay a small fee to post job opportunities on the site, but keep job browsing free?
