Promoting RPGMP3 to the masses

I have also been hacking around the idea of knocking together a poster for you lot to print out and take to your local games emporia to draw some attention to the site
It is all good but you are right. It has been a while since the Slashdotting incident. Although we do still get between 2 and 4 new members a day on average a lot of these are lurkers (which is all well and good)

So we are trying to maximise the exposure surface to not only bring in targeted potential subscribers, but we should seek to increase the eyeball count on potential secondary and tertiary marketable segments with a broad spectrum approach thereby generating site traffic in an increasing and sustainable manner.
Not only necessarily this, but also aside from voiceless traffic it'd be nice to get a few new posters and possible patrons.
After all, I wasn't necessarily even part of this site's "target audience" when I discovered and rediscovered it.
The more eyes on a site, the greater chance for the converts you suggest.
But do you have any ideas?

Other than that, I'm guessing good a idea would be to make more ways for people to 'interact' with the site. Hal, if I recall correctly did say he's going to put up a section for all the various art/fanart so I'm happy for that.

Although the poster for your local game store has potential.

At least you didn't get onto Fark
And I apologize for using the phrase pimp, I should have used the less suggestable phrase promote. [/quote]

However, we're letting the thread drift to jokes and unrelated things.
Might we get back to valid, practical ways to promote the site (that we and others can DO today), and reports of where you might have promoted the site?

Or just ask the 'casters directly?
I'm gonna wander to Fear the Boot's site some day soon, and you can bet I'll be pimp this like crazy...
There are comments and jokes there, but I'll be good, and not speculate over what we might get offered for some members...
Especially Hal, that sexy sexy man...

So if you like this site and want to see it continue, it's time to do something. I don't really know many sites but I will put the word out wherever I can. I recommend being creative - finding places that have heavy traffic and POSTING. Make sure to mention the site address as often as possible. Contact friends you know in big sites and get them to feature the site on their page. Don't give anyone a reason to give up the site. This place is a wonderful community effort that's resulted in months of fun for dedicated listeners - and it shouldn't just disappear.

A lot of sites experience traffic slowdowns from mid november to the new year when peoples attentions urn towards holiday preparations. I know i am a bit more quiet right now as I am working a couple of contracts while I job search.

If anyone here belongs to other vaguely roleplaying related forums (Rpg.net, Criticalmiss.com) they could add a link to this site in their signature.
Competitions might be worth thinking about, but that would cost money.
Badges are something I've always liked the sound of, after finding out by accident that someone I've sat in the same class with for a whole year (and never learnt the name of) is a fellow roleplayer just when the class finished and woldn't be seinge him again.
Other than carrying dice everywhere and OVERTLY playing with them all the time, a badge could equally allow us to recognize each other.
I'm imagining a small (1" diameter) badge with a striking central image and text above and below (or encircling it).
(The image of Feylin with sword raised)
I lost my sanity to Cthulhu and goblins ate my polyhedrals
(The image of a d20 with a chunk bitten out of it)
Just a thought!
