I was thinking of more incentives for supporters and more ways to create websites which offer value to communities whilst also giving potential revenue streams not just in product placement but also ad placement.
I think it would be cool if you could not only charge a user to place a listing (non support) but also allow supporters the opportunity to place ads free.
But what if they sign up for 1 day, 1 week or 1 month to place their ads?
Two ways to tackle this:-
- Take classified ads off-line if their supporter status changes.
- Give them limited credits automatically every month, so you could restrict their free listings to 2 or 3 every month.
Yup you offer this now, but what if people wanted to place ads for events? What if the admin could set up certain categories so that ads can last for longer and expire on or X days before/after an event.
This could plugin right into your Buddypress calendar!
Simple changes open the doors to many more possibilities and thus many more potential users.
Coupon codes would also be cool to offer free listings.
