    58 members, 538 guests...

    So that's 538 comprises randoms checking threads that google has lead them too, probably never to be seen again, and bots, and bots don't ride bikes, buy merchandise, or meet you at the pub for a drink...

      What am I say?

      I'm saying there isn't member base big enough or dedicated enough to foot the bill of running the place...

      This isn't a new thing, it's just that Tim's being upfront about the financials...

        So... the few who can afford it sponsor the site,financially.

        Others use the site for very generous reasons.. Learner rides...Project bikes... in the loop etc..

        If PSB features so heavily in google search ...surely that can be converted into dollars.. ?

        How do we generate more 'hits' and use simple adverts/infomercials.? you tube links etc.. to get a drip feed income.??

        Have we thought of everything ...yet..?

          I believe, from what I was told, that for awhile there good income was derived from some sort of linked advertising, but then they, the advertisers, wanted to have the site "cleaned up", you know get rid of the babes stuff and what not...

              I threw $100 in the membership kitty... don't need any return/events.
              If all the hangers-on actually subscribed, we'd have plenty in the kitty for events.

              Time to step up people, some of you have been riding others' backs for years.
              Funny how some of the most prolific 'members' haven't helped or done Jack Shit for PSB.
              Piss or get off the pot, champ.

                  Paid as a 'Supporter' this week. About time!

                  I hate ads anyway, and so do quite a few other people (see pic). I'd be happy though with having basic text ads, and/or PSB added to ABP's 'Acceptable Ads' initiative. Should be free for PSB?
                  Only large entities have to pay. We qualify an entity as large when it gains more than 10 million additional ad impressions per month due to participation in the Acceptable Ads initiative
                  Won't work if a user's gone ahead and patched their hosts file, but worth a try.

                  Beyond that, my suggestions
                  - Seconded [MENTION=25224]GsxInShed[/MENTION] on making the Babes forum private. All for "free speech" but a dollar's a dollar.
                  - SEO/Targeted ads for motorcyclists in Perth on other sites.
                  - Physical advertising in bike shops. Flyers?
                  - More social rides, doesn't even have to be out bush. The more shit to do the better.
                  - Facebook (ugh) - worthwile to increase PSB's presence there?

                  Ridden: Bicycles, Honda Today 50, 5kW E-Scooter, XT125 Pit Bike, CB125E, CBR125R, Munkers' E-Hyo, VT250 Spada, CB250F Hornet, CBR250RR MC22, Z300, YZF-R3, CB400SF, CB500X, ER6f, YZF-R6, CBR600RR, ZX6R, MT-09, CB1000R Neo, CBR1000RR, S1000RR

                    No it doesn't, as the concept is that they are two different things.

                      I had some discussions with a member who kindly outlined the concept of an app, and was willing to try and create it, however with a change in their wokload they no longer had the time. I need to get back in contact with them to see if they are happy for me to use their concept, and then find another developer.

                        App will fail and end up costing PSB money. Too many other apps offering the same info with a smoother interface. Sure it's not all in the one place, but the uptake to use the app will be small. It'll get a bit of use at first, but within a couple months it'll fizzle out.

                            You might wanna rethink that .... It's not gonna be a PSB specific app.....it's gonna be another generic implant......to find biker related habitat....food....ride zone....tyres.....fuel...food.

                            Open your mind it might just be a $mill idea... ad fashion n tv / foxtel updates.... and it won't lose...

                              The concept wasn't to be a PSB only app, just one that uses some of the success's of PSB, Facebook and a few other social media forums. It was intended to try and generate income to PSB through alternative means...

                                Perhaps some suggested donations in the for sale section, there seems to be a fair bit of turnover there. $50 items.. maybe a couple bucks. Sell your bike on here $50. Do it post sale, all voluntary but peer encouragement should work well I reckon.

                                Speaking of which, might go update some threads...
