I've had discussions with a couple of people about how to make this site better and get some additional traffic - maybe even some students!

One of the suggestions was to work up some t-shirts (that are essentially ordered on here and then paid for up front).


So, question 1 - Is anyone interested in buying one?
Q2 - Anyone have any ideas for what should be on this shirt?


Q3 - Any suggestions for how to grow this forum can also be thrown in here. Other suggestions have included making it official and moving the tailgate (with banner) down towards the students, cross-promoting with some on-campus student media, and even trying to get some money together to sponsor something in athletics (video board at game, pompons, schedule magnets, an official Player of the Year trophy, etc). A lot of this would need athletic department approval, but getting ideas and buy in from others is step one of question three.

I would like to respond to Q3 generally.

I have been an avid viewer of this board for many years, but I did not have the motivation/time/whatever to post. From my perspective over these years, the forum has a decent number of regular posters, but it appears that the forum has not consistently obtained new members that regularly post, for whatever the reasons. I am a prime example of a person not previously joining and posting, despite my love for UCA.

As for suggestions, marketing this forum can take many forms, including those ideas mentioned above (t-shirts, making forum official, game promotion). Others could include word of mouth campaign from current members; posting leaflets, posters, etc. on/around campus and the Conway area; email marketing;and promotional prize give aways (for example, the year end winner of the player of the games receives UCA tickets, apparel, etc.)

Additionally, selling ad space on the website could be a viable form of marketing. Not only could the website generate revenue (to pay for other marketing efforts), but the advertisers would have a vested interest in promoting the forum via word of mouth, posting signage in their business, etc. in order to generate more traffic here.

GO BEARS!

I'm in on a tee shirt.

My accounting degree from UCA disqualifies me from any marketing suggestions.

I'm good with a shirt also. My BSE from UCA didn't include any marketing classes.

I have a good friend in the T-shrt Business. I could have her come up with some
ideas for shirts if I get the ok from the guys on this board. I would need to know
if the UCA Bear Logo could be used or not.

Doubtful. Never looked into it, but I don't think that's ever officially allowed?

It's not. Hell, you can't even put the official Bear logo on a birthday cake from Ed's because they don't pay a licensing fee to UCA.

I'm thinking that maybe something could be worked on with Student Services and and fans.com in putting something together for the "other" students on campus that aren't Greeks. Could be a good way to get more students involved with tailgating and this website.

I am guessing since this is a "not for profit"endeavor that something could be worked out regarding the use of the logo.

Trey, let's talk.

I figured that, but whatever. I will still have her come up with some ideas for
everyone to look at. Give me some Ideas or slogans that you guys might like
to use. Front-Back, one color, 2 or 3?

You know, UCA FANS. COM on the front
something on the back, right sleeve, left sleeve

I have a design (football only) if anyone is interested? It's simple, but I think it says alot. It's front and back but I think UCAfans could be added to the front or the sleeve without any problem. I specifically didn't use the school name or the logo to prevent having to worry about copyright issues, but if you put it on a purple T and have ucafans.com on it, I think it will speak for itself. I got all my info from the ucasports.com football record book.
