+DAS&SAS Posted May 25, 2005 Share Posted May 25, 2005 OK - I'm new on the block, but I have a plan to get more goecachers to buy the membership that doesn't involve adding amazing features to the site that would cause the membership cost to jump to $100... (not that I'm against amazing features - I'm still waiting on the members only faster server ) The reason I became a paying member was not because of pocket searches (I didn't even know what they were). I became a member because when I was out of town and caching, I went to a park that had three caches in it, but I could only get two of them. The third was a members only cache. It drives me crazy to think that I am in the park but cannot get the cache. I know that some of you might be thinking... "That's because you must be one of those 'numbers' guys". Well, maybe I am - but there are many many users of gc.com that think the same way I do. They don't want to pass a cache by when they are right there. We can use this strong desire - weither its about the numbers, or just b/c they love to cache like me - to drive membership. Here's the plan: In every park where we have a cache - or two - or more - we put a members only cache. I'm not suggesting that we make all caches members only, but a members only cache placed near a cache open to everyone would be a big incentive for many people. What are your thoughts?
