[quote="baldy"] 2) Offer support, we need a person to act as "Minister of Finance" to gather sponsorships and sell advertising to vegan companies. The person to do this does not need to have any experience, just enthusiasm. Along with this we need suggestions of companies we can approach for donations, free products and to buy advertising. Even better if people can write sample letters that we can send out to these companies.
I may be interested in doing this. I have no experience but I can write nicely and I own a suit!
Please add me to the skype stuff I'll message you my username on that
suggestions so farsuggestions of companies
: easiest way to do this is by thread. stats
if we are going to sell advertising we would need to be able to provide stats on how many hits the site gets, how long people tend to stay for etc etc. Do we have this? If not I think it is quite easy to get though not sure if it is free.vegan companies or vegan products
It would be prudent to decide ahead of time if we only want to deal with vegan companies or if it is sufficient that the product advertised is vegan. I worry that if we rule out companies based on their parent company the pool left will be pretty small. Again a thread/poll on this might be useful.member donations
It might be an idea to give members something back in exchange for the (monthly?) donations. this does not have to cost us anything!
because recognition is free. For example, some theatres put the names on donors on the back of seats.
JS - They think it will open the door to folk like LordMuppet campaigning for a threeway?
