    That's nice.

    Advice: Think of how you intend to market a/k/a parlay that into something meaningful for one the fence non-members. Why should anyone care? Why does this matter to people who only know the new cars? Context helps.

    It's just a "we arranged/paid to have this speaker at our annual get-together" without some passionate story behind it.

    Thanks for the advice. Mrs. Abarth was not paid to attend. She wanted to come over and meet her enthusiasts in America and share the vision of Carlo Abarth and to hopefully help keep his memory alive. Membership loved to meet her and she loved the event. Let's hope this continues between Mrs. Abarth and the American fans and members.

    I have to say Bob had an excellent post on facebook talking about what Abarth meant to him growing up. Very moving and it illustrates why some of us do what we do and where our passion comes from.

    I was trying to find the link but it is on this page: https://www.facebook.com/fiatclubnj/?__xts__[0]=68.ARB3AEVO5baZL0-hl3XiO3xWmrW8BJMndyykjWyX-fAhflf6whH12P5HZqXKCHdjgXIg5KMYRfcD3fL2WvithJC7N6c yDGsFg4aewmwA8LO8-6yFv3HNVZTlk0jpLC8rEsfHxHAjB42pnfRB_RsmRkmVe_oU8SF 15WsjhhP3e3AputJkQLlkOw

    'Did not mean to imply you paid her... I meant the organization, like many others, picks up part/all of transportation and (sometimes) accommodations for speakers. I know you helped make this happen. Auto Italia Magazine has also hosted Mrs. Abarth at various UK events.

    She reached out to me via Facebook a few years ago with encouragement regarding some of the things I've written about ABARTH history. She's made a career of preserving her late husband's legacy. http://cc5club.blogspot.com/search?q=abarth

    My earlier comment was sincere. Posting occasional video clips or links is wise, but more can be done (daily, weekly, monthly, annually) to promote the entire culture as opposed to one organization just before or after a convention. It's a continual process... more than monthly meetings... to pass the passion to younger generations. We see that with Mrs. Abarth's work. She is ever present; forums, Facebook (personal and business), various conventions, races, magazines, etc. The constant energy is infectious and inspiring.

    A wise man once told me (in business), "Hope is not a strategy". It is something by which I live. Continual and consistent doing will guarantee to relationship between the ABARTH brand has a permanent... and significant... place is USAmerican car culture. This forum and others like it are proof.

    All true words. A continuous presence pays in the long run. A great example is your Cream City 500 Blog thread on the forum. By being present on this, and other social media platforms, you gain a voice in the community and people want to hear what you have to say. There are 37,300+ views of the Cream City 500 Club thread and many of these I bet followed the link over to the blog so they could see what you had to say.



    Promoting on Facebook is one thing and is expected nowadays. However, there are folks that don't do Facebook for various reasons and a forum like this is an excellent way to reach out beyond the audience on FB. Last year, we had 48 million hits, 19 million pageviews, 1.3 million visits, and over 630,000 unique visits. So that's a lot of potential eyes on a thread. Being present and regular posting does pay off.

    You are correct, of course. Page views continue to be tracked back to this forum this week.

    I keep track of the metrics related to the CC5C blog as well as from where the visitors come (sites and countries). In addition, I keep track of the languages in which the blog is read. I did the same when I managed the CC5C Facebook page I founded/launched. I keep links to the Pinterest & Facebook pages as well as the blog in my forum and email signatures. I stay active with the online community because I want to interact with and serve my fellow car enthusiasts on a human level. That's what builds communities/clubs -- Human Beings. Put your heart into it and success will follow.
