    Some months ago we asked the members of this forum to review our new project www.coffeefun.com and we also were looking for promotion ideas, because it was very difficult to promote a new forum. Now, we can say with certainty that the forum is very successful and all your help and advice were very helpful!

    We changed the general idea of this forum. Now it sounds like “Coffee for talking”. It means you can earn coffee cents while talking in the forum and exchange these cents for any coffee related products from our store http://www.1-800-espresso.com This is why we created new design for forum.

    We would like to know your opinion about this idea with coffee cents and about our new design.

    Btw, CoffeeFun was only our first step. Some weeks ago we started another forum www.vitatalk.com, based on the same idea – earning vita cents while talking about health. We hope it will be successful as well, but any your comments and criticism as to our projects will be greatly appreciated.

    Some people think these 25 cents for a new topic and 10 cents for replies are a kind of salary. Not at all! This is just an easy way to get discounts for the products we sell in our stores. The more often you talk the larger is your discount.

    Do you think this is a good present for our members? Are 25 or 10 cents enough?

    As long as you control spamming then sounds like a fairly good idea. Possible a bit too much in my opinion.

    We are ready to pay these sums now, while we are organizing community in our forums. Some time later, when we get better result from them, the price will be OK as well.

    To avoid spam messages we recently set up a new rule – only registered users can post in www.CoffeeFun.com.
    We have no spam for a week or two and our members approved of this idea.
    I would like to know the opinions of other forum owners and members. Do you find it useful?

    Just a few words to sum up this topic.

    It’s been about a month or two since we started this strategy and the results are very good. We saw many forums using incentives which could be redeemed for goods or small gifts. Most people say these 10 or 15 cents will not make them richer, but they feel richer and they like friendly chat and try to post more.

    We were glad to receive any your comments and opinions and will be happy to know more from you in future You are welcome to our forums www.CoffeeFun.com and www.VitaTalk.com !

    it seems like a good idea.

    What response have you had from ur users? Have any of them redeemed any of their "cents" yet?

    Most of our users like the idea with coffee cents. One of them received a small discount for a set of designer cups - http://coffeefun.com/viewtopic.php?t=590

    As for vita cents, I am afraid I cannot tell you exactly, because the forum is too young and we do not have a large number of people posting.
