I really like the idea of sending students/alumni to campus and pass out fliers. In addition to that, if it is possible, have those fliers in some sort of package for SOAR students. I know when I went to SOAR I got all sorts of information, both needed and not. These students are going to be excited for college, staying away from home, and meeting new people. I think that’s the perfect time for an advertisement of, “Hey, get to know some fellow Niners before you even start school!” If it’s possible to set up a stand there, that would also be pretty cool. You could kill two birds with one stone: Spread Niner fever and bring new posters to the site all at once!
[quote=“s9er, post:6, topic:26061”]I want NWA to drive the Normbulance around campus with a group of posters to kidnap students much like the van scene in Old School. That would really get the campus talking about this place.
On an unrelated note- perhaps NWA shoudl set up Paypal account from some donations in exchange for a nice NN.N ad on the rig.[/quote]
The NNN lettering will def be going on the Normbulance once the graphics are on. I am also planning on selling some tshirts to help defray costs on keeping it on the road, I can include ninernation.net on the shirt design. That wouldn’t hurt. Once some of these things get closer to fruition I will get a dedicated Normbulance account and paypal set up!
[quote=“Savio, post:7, topic:26061”]You need actual content and viable URLs to search engine optimize. You can only do so much with meta parameters.[/quote]The competition level for “Charlotte 49ers Message Board” is low according to Google data. A relevant title tag and meta description should be plenty to move NNN to the top of search engine rankings. The meta keywords are useless.
Another thing that would be beneficial is if everyone here that has a personal site or posts on another message board links back to the board with the anchor text of “Charlotte 49ers Message Board.” Back links with keyword relevant anchor text is huge for search engine optimization.
We should also engage the NNN facebook page in discussions on the Charlotte 49ers Facebook page. Encourage followers to join us for pre-game get togethers or the lunches we do on occasion. The 49ers Facebook page has over 10,000 followers.
These are two simple and free things that we can do to increase membership and engagement among the Niner community.
This board has been an important part of the past and future of Niner Athletics and I’d like to see it continue to grow and prosper.
Every person we engage on here has a network of people that they may engage in Niner athletics as well.
[quote=“49RFootballNow, post:17, topic:26061”]Before the weeklong shutdown there was a thread about making an on-campus marketing push for NN.N. Did anything come of this?[/quote]No, nothing came about.
