An idea to promote Persona Paper

It is not exactly an original idea and to be very honest, I got this idea from Chatabout.

Nowadays, we are all grumbling (some of us anyway) that the posts are getting very few views and we need new members, more participation etc.

For this we all need to spread the word about . So here’s the idea:

On front page, where important announcements are made, there can be a topic called Earn 50 coins or (100 if the admins are feeling generous).

Under this post can be an announcement like the one about referral coins but this time it is about promotion on this site on our .

Most of us here have blogs of our own. Why not have each member create a post about Persona Paper. It has to be an in-depth review 300-400 words long.

In comments sections, we should be allowed to post links of our blog entries. Once verified, the admins can add coins to our bank.

Personally I think blogs reach a much wider audience than posting referral links on twitter and Facebook because on twitter and Facebook we are followed by friends and family usually and telling them once or twice is enough. After that, we become annoying but blogs keep on getting fresh views.

Maybe it can be experimented for one month. Suppose one of my followers joins Persona Paper after reading my blog entry and then writes about this site on her/his blog and this goes on. I am sure this can boost membership.

I would love to hear your views.

I think that is a great idea. I have a blog and would happily post on mine.

That is a possibility.

Wish you had mentioned the 50 coins BEFORE I published my article and posts about PersonaPaper. Shared info at Bubblews, Daily Two Cents and one of my blogs.

This sounds like an excellent idea. Any initiative meant to help Persona Paper become a lot more popular is worth trying!

Well, seeing as my blog is going to be hosting my reviews, I'd be happy to write a review of the site emoticon :winking:

That is a really good idea. It wouldn't work for me, personally, because my two blogs are themed (one is an art blog, and I have linked back to PP articles about my art), but for anyone who has a just-my-thoughts type of blog, a post about PP would be good!

I am still trying to figure out how to become a better blogger. I hope that this is something that you can figure out if it can work.

It will consume a lot of time on the part of Admin, because they have to click on the link to check out the blog, and make sure everything written there is factual.

I was kind of thinking the same thing, that sure would be a long process to confirm these blog post. But not a totally bad idea if there was some way to make the process easy to confirm.

I have never had my own blog spot so cannot comment, but PP does need to be reaching a larger audience. I think since Bubblews spoiled us all and then pulled the plug a lot of people gave up with the online writing. Some chose other sites to migrate to, but those went belly up, losing even more from the scene.

that sounds like a really good idea. promotion is always key to a successful business

My blogs are rather neglected, and I get much better reach writing about PP on other writing sites. But I do like the idea!

I hope that this will be considered by the admin

While the idea is nice, handing out coins like that is not something we are capable of doing for anyone who does a lengthy blog post. We're not really at the point that we have leftover coins to give away.

This sounds like a great idea!

Sounds like a good idea. As far as I can remember, I have written about Persona Paper on some sites/blogs. It would be good to promote Persona Paper so more people can know about it and join the site.

I think measures such as this are definitely worthwhile. I have noticed an increase in participation here in the last 24 hours, since the email re inactivity went out.
