PostSubject: BYD's new and handsome way to advertise our forum   Thu May 09, 2013 4:03 pm

So I’ve been banging my head against the wall for a week now trying to think of a new way to advertise our beloved forums. I will still reward you guys at this point if you are able to recruit people no worries I'd show my thanks.
But I thought of something for myself, and please feel free to try this too.

I have printed out some business card sized Tip of the Hat cards that I am going to be giving out.
“BYD, who are you going to give those to?”
“Well Billy good old byd is going to a party this weekend and I have a feeling that Beer + the endless drive to promote will be a good combination! And you know I used to be a Marketing Rep and a Salesman”
“Gee whizz mister that sounds swell”
“Also, when you are physically giving someone a hardcopy piece of an advert, they are more likely to remember it, so its word of mouth plus extra incentive!”
"Do you think you can help me find love too?"
"....Yes."


I have all the patience in the world to promote the place, none when cutting

So on each of these cards I am taking the liberty to write some kind of self-attacking note to parody the fact that I am semi using a party to promote my own interests. For example calling A Tip of the Hat a good waste of time.




I’m not 100% what to expect but I think I’m going to have drunk fun with it and there is absolutely nothing to lose, and I will be able to see if this kind of event could lead me to using these kinds of tactics more seriously in the future. Most of the people I only visit occasionally so I will see how they respond towards it. Also if you guys can help me one with one-liners that’d be great
I printed off about 12 of these and I am already running out of jokes after five.

If for some reason you are handsome as well (Gravy) I am also providing the photoshop document I used to print these suckers on a standard page. Just cut them out and add your own handsome to it and then Squadala, you are off.

Aha we'll see. I might whip it out at some point. This is another one of my more outgoing moments


More one liners for my cards
"Almost five years old! Nearly legal"
"Someone else did all the graphic design for me"
"582 members that all contribute"
"At least make an account and forget about it"
"I have over 20,000 posts for you to read"

Students are probably the easiest demographic to target- that's a pretty good idea.

I am taking a law course online and they encouraged me to make an introductory post on their discussions. Guess what I advertised there as well lol

I gave everyone who I thought might be Internet Savy a card. I was fairly bold. Even some that didn't. Then it came to a point that I had a few cards left and had to decide what to do with them. I gave almost everyone I came in contact to a card. Then the drunkeness took hold and I thought I'd go into funny mode

This is what I came up with

My adventure didnt go so well. The college kids were in drunk "fuqdapolice" mode so nobody was interested in forums. I'll try again next weekend.

Then my dumbass friend needed a wingman, so i distracted this ugly girl while he got her hot sister totally smashed. I would have been ok with it except that he FAILED TO BANG HER. Dumbass let the girl have too much booze, then she ran off with some dashing young lad. Who was me. But what would YOU do if a sexy girl started putting her hands on your chest. Anyway, i did my job for a solid three hours. Its his fault.

I think at least three people promised to join.

It was a lot of fun though and Sky was helping me out. Would try it again for sure. I had a few friends that would always laugh and exchange the one liners with each other. So at least there was that
