Thinking Outside the Box

You often think to yourself how can I promote my forum? How can I make money?

Take some lessons from Gene Simmons. Yes that Gene Simmons, the bassist/singer for Kiss. Look how he has made more money from Kiss merchandise, by promoting and coming up with new ideas and products then he did with the band. How did he do this, by thinking outside the box.

I was watching his show, Family Jewels on A&E the other day and found out he was losing 20K from an investment in a bull farm.

So what did he do? Well he went directly there and say; “How can I make money with this?” He took a look around the farm and was thinking outside the box, a golf course, and a buy your own bull farm, anything just to make some money.

Finally after talking with the farm hands, the farm hands and Gene came up with selling the sperm from the bulls where they were making massive amount of money per bull.

What does this have to do with you and your forums? Sometimes you have to take a step back and start thinking outside the box.

Why another blog about forums? Great question, we are just a couple of forum owners who have built ours forums from the ground-up. We just wanted a blog for real life forum owners, with real life experiences.

    He may have been thinking outside the box, but he was thinking inside the bull!
