Zen Duck Forum
Okay guys and Gals, I hope you are well?
To get to the point.
I keep getting comments and emails about having a forum so we can all get in to chatting about stuff that may not be suitable for a public blog. I have been thinking about this for well over a year now and honestly have always dismissed the idea as a time sink.
This is not to say my time is any more precious than yours, it isn’t, but I keep getting these requests.
So, here is the deal.
I will do it if we get a minimum of 100 peeps saying they will sign up and pay $10 a month for the privilege.
We will talk about anything and everything we want in private.
I am being honest here and I am stating categorically that I will not set it up unless I get 100 people leaving a comment here saying they will be willing to pay the money every month. I will have to spend a good few hundred on vBulletin and sort out payment processing, blah, blah, blah. Any other recommendations are more than welcome.
Basically this is going to be private to those that join and I will be dropping in every day to answer questions and the like and that is a promise. But it will be for you guys to chat about whatever you want as the main focus with a few key peeps sharing their knowledge with you for free if they feel so inclined.
I am doing this only as I keep getting requests to do so and to be honest I don’t expect enough people to say they are willing to pay the ten bucks to get it going. But at least the issue will have been laid to rest and if at any point in the future I get the appropriate numbers then I will set it up.
I thank you.
First ten to answer will get a free life-time subscription. IF they are genuine about paying if they don’t make the top ten.
p.p.s Yeah, I know, this is one of those posts where it never turns out like you expected. To those that have asked for a forum don’t say I didn’t warn you.
p.p.p.s Is ten bucks too much or not enough? Give me your ideas about what you want to pay, what you want to be on the forum and if you want it at all. Or think that a free public forum would be better. I don’t personally, we can chat here on the blog as far as I am concerned if it is to be public. I won’t be making a public forum but your comments on the subject are welcome.
UPDATE: Well, in just a few days we have near to half the number needed to make a forum work. If you want it to happen then please cajole your friends and anyone else you think might be interested. Get them to leave a comment stating that they are interested and send some link love this way on your favorite social platform.
Some ideas for what will be in the paid forum are as follows:
- Access to be able to ask me questions directly with full and complete answers
- Tips on optimization and quick ways to up the bank balance
- Discounts on products offered by friends of the Zen Duck
- Sub-sections of your choosing as it will be based on what you want not what I think you want
- The ability to be part of something exclusive and learn how to beat your competition
- A private place to talk about strategies not spoken about here
- Regular guides by me exclusive to the forum
- and much much more
If you know me and have a product that you will offer at a discount price then let me know in the comments. Hopefully this alone will make it worth joining.
Anyway, it will evolve once up and running but it will only happen if we get 100 peeps stating they are interested. There is a long way to go yet.
Go tell your buddies!
