Here's what I'm thinking.
I'm thinking of building in some advanced features to gigposters.com for the benefits of the designers.
Basically, I'm thinking of charging a small fee to designers who want extra features. It is becoming more and more necessary for me to find additional ways to fund this website .. as I am getting more and more broke dedicating most of my time working on and maintaining this website.
Now, I'm not looking to force any charges on anyone .. and I'm not trying to rip anyone off. What I'm saying .. is that I'm willing to put in some serious time and effort to build in some advanced features that YOU (the designer) would be willing to pay for. I want this to help you.
So .. I would like to use this thread to get your feedback, ideas, opinions etc. on what I can do to make additional features that would benefit you.
Please brainstorm below ... and feel free to totally cut down this idea if you are against it. Be honest ... and lets see how this goes.
A few of my ideas (possibilities):
- designer recognition in the forums (linking to your posters)
- advanced bio that can be used in some sort of random (designer of the week or featured designer section)
- additional information and control over your posters
- the ability to include your gigposters.com posters on your own website
- advanced submission form (less steps)
- perhaps an additional section for non-gigposter art to showcase your other work?
(these are just a few ideas I can think of at the moment. Please take a moment and think about this and post your ideas)
