Come on now. I have a wounded hand.
Weak links must be eliminated for the strength of the community.
Yeah we have actually done this twice. It blew up in our face both times. Probably some things we could have done better but it'd be tough for me to get the owners to sign off on trying that again.
That will be up at some point today.
I joined yesterday and it's money well spent. Like many here I fully fit the description of Fanatic, as I'm reminded each season by the the glazed look on family members' faces when I go into detail on coaching strategies and recruit/depth chart details. I was just thinking that Patreon Tier/groups would be a cool idea to use as an indicator of what the most Fanatic of Fanatics would like to see most.
I for one would love a "Woody all the things!" option. I was a huge fan of his CFTV live guest segment this last year that I find myself wanting to hear his input in the off-season on recruiting and possibly breaking down more of the larger offensive and defensive concepts that Campbell is installing in Ames. He may not be interested in doing more, but as a fan I think he adds a lot to an already awesome team that you guys have. If I'm being perfectly honest with myself the tier/group idea is just an excuse to say that I wish Jeff could contribute more.
Alright. I'll sacrifice myself. See you on the other side. (stupid Darwin)
I'll donate for a Cyclone Fanatic nut cup
Preferably bluetooth enabled so when something (inevitably) bad happens to the clones, you instantly get a shock to the nuts wherever you are! Then you can stumble out of that boring sales meeting to check CF on what went wrong now.
Might not be effective for ALL CF'ers...
They get $2.50 each CC transaction it looks like.
Yes, it might do something different to the females here ...
Patreon takes 5 percent. Half of what PayPal takes. By far our best option.
I follow sports exponentially different than I did five years ago. It isn't that I can't be a fan, but it is a lot harder for me to get worked up over sporting events now. Unless I've had a few Busch Lights.
Speaking from hard-earned experience ...
PayPal is notorious for freezing extremely large amounts of money for long periods of time and providing nonexistent customer service. Payment processors like Square or Stripe are infinitely better than PayPal.
Patreon was a great, overdue move for the CF team in the meantime.
I don't know the details of CF's attempts in this area, but there are ways to run a shop with no overhead and nearly no risk. Some high-end boutique brands use drop shippers for their sites, meaning they don't have to handle any merchandise or logistics. The product is only made WHEN an order is placed. Generally, the most labor needed is cashing the checks every month.
The tradeoff is pretty simple: instead of making 66% profit on a shirt and carrying inventory, just accept 30% profit and let someone else worry.
Ladies don't need a nut cup. Women have it so easy.
Can someone explain the reward $?
I went in to make a donation and it said there is a reward amount as well....just want to make sure I'm doing it right.
I publish a newspaper, website, and radio show. I feel your pain and don't blame you one bit for trying something new.
I urge all fanatics to utilize the local sponsors on this site when/if the opportunity arises, and tell them why you came. Obtaining advertisers is up to the staff, retaining them is based on the ROI, which is you.
I know that there was trouble a few years ago putting the ISU logo on a nut cup, but couldn't you do it with the CF logo?
Or have a store that includes generic nut cups and logo stickers among other products?
We may need another push closer to football season when the site traffic is higher. I have to think right now is one of the lowest times of the year for site traffic.
