Guys, the first post of this thread clearly states the stickers are being sold at-cost. There is zero profit margin on this, and it is done for the members.

I agree that there should be a steady schedule of mailings, but let's keep in mind that processing these sales, packing them, and mailing them takes time out of someone's day without compensating them

I apologize guys... I honestly missed that they are being sold at cost.

But as far as being a business. There are a whole bunch of ads and trackers here that might detract from that non-profit concept, And sometimes you have to give away free crackers to sell the bowl of soup.

And good news, Stock is still up at least 6 % so far today.

INTERNET BRANDS, INC. (INET) IPO

NASDAQ 6965.36 4.40 ▲ 0.06%
DJIA 24782.29 55.64 ▲ 0.23%
S&P 500 2684.57 5.32 ▲ 0.20%

Nobody said IB is a non-profit. We said they don't make any money on these stickers. That's precisely why, as a for-profit business, they're a low priority.

I'm sure they'd be willing to add emphasis to this particular process if we can make the income worth their time, but how many people do you think would pay $10 or more for a sticker?

Oh no I completely understand, and I think it is great that they are selling stickers at cost. You have to give away crackers to sell the soup. But selling the soup is the end goal. And selling stickers at cost helps sell the site, which helps sell the brand, which helps sell the ads and stock.

But stickers are advertisements too. In fact a very important one that should be out there on Cherokees as quick as they can be so more eyes can read them and come support the site and brand and read the ads IB's ad customers want to be read.

It is to their advantage to have as many out there on the road as fast as they can. Prompt delivery is very important to get this done. By the time someone gets the stickers they may have sold the Jeep and the stickers get tossed on the wayside rather than being posted in public.

I'm just saying it is kind of unproductive and doesn't help the brand image as a whole at that point.

Tell you what... Because advertisement stickers are a tax write off, even if I had to give them away, I would get as many as possible out there as fast as possible!

Rolling billboards are one of the very best advertising tools there is!
