Spill is working behind the scenes to get their numbers up. As the loyal and dedicated Street Crew I figure we might want to get in on the action! I'm requesting that ya'll set some goals to raise those numbers and we work together to figure out how to get Spill the recognition we all think it deserves.
What do you think will bring in new members and while still keeping our older members happy? What can we do and what would you like to ask the Spill Crew to do to make take the site to new levels?
Here are some new questions I have to ask you that might help Spill out!
1. What makes you want to follow a twitter or like a facebook page?
2. What brought you onto Spill? And what keeps you coming back?
3. Would you participate in a site-wide event or collaboration? What kind of events/collaborations would you enjoy?
******************New Questions to Answer!*************************
4. Are there any other communities that you're highly active in? If so, which ones?
5. How likely are you to attend a meet up even if the Spill Crew was not in attendance?
6. Have you gotten any of your friends to join Spill? How did you introduce the site to them?
I will be updating the numbers on this page once a week so we can check back on our progress.
More Loading bar press as with the shopping season coming up people will be buying alot of video games.
More press on everyone on the sites DVDs reviews
A picture of you and Korey and Co-host in a Tron Pose as promotion for the site
One of those were a joke :P
I wish I knew which one was a joke. Oh well I'll just have to take them all seriously. :-)
One, I think of right off the bat, is better merchandising. Something that catches the eye but not overloads the sense, as to what Spill is. Something that grabs peoples attention but, you know, isn't shitty.
Two, maybe community or site-wide events where they come to collaborate on something. Site involvement seems to be a big thing on Spill that I've not seen on other social networking related media sites. That could surely be capitalized on, somehow.
When you talk about merchandising are you just talking about better t-shirts that represent the site better? Or other things like maybe a Co-Host plushy?
Just better merch, period. I think this site could do better than just a janky black t-shirt with some cheap iron-on image of the site logo on it and a few pics of the crew. A black shirt with the logo on it isn't all that terrible, but there is a lot of creative license that could be taken with designs for t-shirts to make it more interesting (I mean, just look at whats been done in that similar thread in this group).
I'm sure it's right out of the site's budget right now, but these are all ideas I'd like to see come to fruition. A Co-Host plush? Sure, why not? Toys, shirts, maquettes; wherever there's a will, there's a way.
I agree! I mean we have many creative spillos on here as well we could easily do some promotion art etc. Like if the site allowed us to do a poster with site info links on etc, we go printed and plaster it on the walls around towns. That could work.
Here are my thoughts, take them as you will:
The whole fan art contest is a great example of how I view this site. There's a lot of fun content, and the member participation is great in most cases, but the guy behind the show (Korey) doesn't really care what the member's think.
MV, you're doing an awesome job trying to get people more involved, but what you're looking for is a marketing department that can actually get things done not suggestions that will evolve into a 10 page post where people bicker back and forth. I used to enjoy coming to the site for the reviews, and the back and forth, but it got old quick when I realized Korey's reviews were mostly "Oh I didn't see the movie, is that how it was? That's what it looked like in the trailer".
Contests/site-wide events are a great idea, if they don't stretch out for months after the fact and actually go somewhere.
Video reviews are awesome, if they're consistent.Those are why I started coming to the site, but they've gotten fewer and far between, and the site's branching so far out trying to cover everything, that it's lost that touch I think made it so much fun.
Thanks for the feedback, but I do have to say that Korey cares a whole lot about Spill members.
Well, I didn't see this before, so I'll go ahead and answer your questions.
1) I neither have a Facebook or a Twitter account. This question isn't for me.
2) What brought me to Spill was the crew and the unique take of animated characters doing reviews coupled with quirky animations. What keeps me coming back to Spill isn't so much the Crew anymore, per se (I still enjoy the reviews, podcasts, and other content), but the people that I've made friends with. Some of them I've actually met and got acquainted with instead of just know as digital pen pals. The people are what brings me back, specifically people I've come to like, time and again.
3) Absolutely. I'd love to work with others and merge minds. However, I don't have anything big in mind at the moment and nor do I think it should be. It should be something small at first, just to gauge what kind of legs it has to stand on, and see where it goes from there.
For me, what I'd love to see the site expand into is a collaborative cesspool (as there are some pocket scenarios have shown already) where people can not only talk about movies and other things but help each other with their own projects. I don't know if it will ever happen but that is what I'd like to see happen.
