Where to begin, these gripe posts are getting old. After this, no more please. If you cant control yourself, use the private message feature.
CanadianCarAudio.Com is the #1 source for car audio information is Canada. That won’t change. To advertise your shows you must be a vendor. Vendor rates are cheaper than when the previous owner had the site by $10, there is also double the traffic and almost 1000 new users.
If a company is interested in advertising their event, they must become a vendor. That means they operate their business like our current sponsors on here. This is a super deal for them, however if they do not want to capitalize on it, I can’t force them.
These same companies can post via print media, I am not their marketing expert, I am my own. They can grow with us, or miss the boat.
Now, I feel the same frustration you do. I often wonder how some shops expect to get users out to an event if there’s no exposure. I try to explain to them the benefits of being an advertiser on a CAR AUDIO FORUM when their main product is car audio, the internet works….
Now, I suppose the issue after the realization that the internet works is the cost. In one basket I have vendors who love it and believe in the pricing, find its fair etc. Then in another hand I have users and some shops who say they cant afford it or don’t want to pay. Ok, so don’t. Just don’t expect your post to stay up.
This is a hobby first and foremost for me. But when you want to affect my current vendors and I get complaints, they must be handled, these people pay for a service and I am here to provide it.
Your last statement is a joke.
