A big difference is we are a small enough company that everything is on a very personal level with us and not just business. And every sale is very appreciated before and after. Sometimes it gets very stressful but I still love it there everyday.
I don't think the other companies are in a unique situation such as us. It doesn't make them bad, just a different situation and priorities for them.


Don't worry once we make our first billion dollars we will forget all about the little people. Bwaah. Just kidding I enjoy being one of the little people too much. And if someone wants to give me a billion dollars I will prove it. :D

Dave puts this quit well actually... he does not own an 80 foot cabin cruiser that sits off the Gulf Coast yet (he may someday though :clap: )
also, this forum is just at its beginning stages of becoming large enough to be a reckoning force. the smart manufacturer would buy 5 years of that front page ad spot now and ask for a rep login on the forum for his product line because once a forum gets to 100k members the amount of views from non-members who dont even post are MIND BLOWING and so is the cost to advertise on a forum like that! its a MUCH longer time frame to go from 1 member to 10,000 than it is to get from 10,000 to 100,000

I have no idea what Rich charges for a main page ad spot... but id guess its in the hundreds per month (at a million posts and a million page views that cost climbs to thousands per month)... were kinda lucky Rich does not go crazy with ads because he could so lets not push these subject to much... Rich is just gonna sell the forum, its database and its name for 1mil when he retires toothy

Remember it is easier to make a million dollars off of one person than 1 dollar off of a million people :lol: A couple good points made about taking the good with the bad, and yes there is some bashing here on occasion and you need thick skin sometimes, but you get up and dust yourself off and these days there are not many folks that are willing to stick their neck out.
I see that a lot of the stoves used by folks on this forum are Amish made and their communication is limited in respect to the internet. Many of the units are made outside of this country, and many are no longer made period. My Gold Marc model was made in Monticello N.Y. 30 yrs. ago. It seems like hundreds were made a century ago. The appliances that are good get free advertising by word of mouth. Kind of ironic heating with coal was most popular 100 years ago and word of mouth advertising was most popular 100 yrs ago!
