Should CRO just focus on Canadian Motorsports only?

I'm looking at ways to improve the site for next season. CRO has grown again and we will hit over 30 million hits this year which is a huge jump from last years hits to CRO.

Thanks for all your support from all the members and sponsors.

I hope next year will be better year in gaining new sponsors. People I speak to can't believe the site doesn't have a full time sponsors with the numbers this site gets. My goal to get a racing sponsor or is involved in racing. I would love to remove Google ads that don't seem to focus on providing us with ads that suit the members needs.

I'm still open to partnership deals as I know me doing it on my own is also holding CRO from growing even more.

Sent me a email or pm if you would like to partner with CRO.

I wouldn't say we should focus on Canadian motorsports to the exclusion of everything else....but it is the reason we're here.

I'd tend to say the focus should be on Canadians in motorsports.

This site has prospered largely as a grass-roots movement about weekly short-track racing and touring series. If I was running the show, rather than expanding to include US interests, I'd probably work at expanding and getting more tracks on board from other provinces. I know we're inclusive of all of it, but for some reason, this place seems to be populated mostly by folks from tracks in Ontario. I'd probably try to figure out why and then try to fix it.

This is just my take however. I'm not really sure what you have in mind Evan. I do know that I don't really need to be reading all about Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart and Jimmie Johnson when I come here. There's a hundered other places that do a way better job at that than we could.

I can agree with most of this post especially the NASCAR comments. NASCAR is readily available in numerous ways for the die hard fan.I think that the Canadian content in some ways would be more appealing for sponsorships on the site since the site would be Canadian dominated and the sponsor would get more bang for his dollar knowing that. Canadian results as they come in should be on the home page and set the stage for comment . Hope this may be food for thought !

 ¬  ¬ Keep your main focus on Canadian stuff. I for one would like to see more info from other provinces as well. Keep the NASCAR and other stuff as it is fun to banter with others here about that instead of going to a board where you aren't familiar with anybody. I for one like to hear the opinions of the people HERE on those topics. Even though I don't know anyone personally on here (that I know of anyways). Also there are enough Canadians running NASCAR, IRL, whatever to keep the threads going for them as well. I like the mix as it is now and use CRO exclusively. I don't want to go to any other racing boards.
 ¬  ¬ As far as getting sponsors......I really think you should reconsider going to CPT. That may help you get contacts. I know you don't know me from a hole in the ground but I would be willing to help you out in some way there. I will be going anyways and would be willing to help man a booth for a day.

And what do you know...I think the CPT is in my hometown.

Pretty hard to justify the booth space though...that stuff isn't cheap. But it sure wouldn't be bad to have a bag full of materials to walk around and press the flesh with. Maybe drum up some ad revenue.

I have contacted tons of tracks this year and I don't think they know how much this can help there tracks and gain some intrest in them. Never go many replies from the tracks I contacted. A lot of tracks like to keep the message boards on there site which I for one feel is a big mistake as you are not getting much exposure only from the people that attend your tracks.

As for the CPT show what would I need as I have no t-shirts or Decals or Baseball caps left and can't afford to buy a new batch as I really had a slow year with banner advertising on the site this year.

I really need to make up some type of marketing kit I could send out to sponsors. I have no idea what I would put in this as I never had to make one up before.

Maybe user feedback can help out in this.

Why do you come to CRO and do you support the banner advertisers by clicking banners here and why do you click the banners?

Maybe a new way to get sponsors involved in CRO? Why should a company become a banner advertiser on CRO.


I really need a partner to come on board and we could maybe grow CRO to where it should be not to many people can say they have a 10 year old message board.

 I'm planning to have a booth again at the 2010 Motorsports Expo Evan.  If you have some CRO Marketing Kits put together, send them my way. I'll make space for them in my booth or in my store.

Thanks for the offers. I have to make up a marketing kit and I don't have any shirts with the new logo on it yet. I need to get some cash flowing my way. I was hoping to have a banner advertiser which would have helped pay for shirts.

I'm waiting for a reply on a partner deal and maybe I will be able to get some things.

Thanks Everyone

 And no, I don't think CRO should focus only on Canadian Motorsports.

 I like the idea of open topics on racing. When this site was cascaronline, all discussions didn't have to be about Cascar.  With CRO being based in the Toronto area, most of the posts are going to be from Ontario. I think CRO is still regional. If CRO is going to continue to grow and expand, I think it has to stay diverse. I enjoy this site. Keep up the good work Evan (and company).
 As far as race track participation. Race tracks are notorious for not working with each other, so I don't see them wanting to have a cooperative effort with competing message boards.
Just my two cents.

STAY CANADIAN UNLESS TALKING ABOUT A CANADIAN WHO IS RUNNING IN THE US.
I FIND THIS SITE SLIGHTLY HARD TO FIGURE OUT, SO MANY AVENUES TO CHASE AND HARD TO TELL IF SOMEONE IS POSTING WHEN I'M ON OR POSTING. I'M NEW THOUGH SO MAY GET EASIER AS I GO.
