So how is InvestEd going? Since the Site has now been going for about 6 months, I was wondering whether a bit of honest feedback from members that is intended to help may be useful? As I said, let's be honest but also constructive in giving the sort of input that will help the Site to future growth. Ok.......a few points that come to mind: 1. Firstly, I have no idea of the technical, behind-the-scenes effort required to start and setup a Site such as this, however I would assume it's been a lot of work and I congratulate all involved. It looks good and seems to work well. 2. To the Moderators, thank you for your time and commitment. It is greatly appreciated. 3. Personally, at this stage, I don't think the Site is getting anywhere near the number of Members/posts/contributions it needs to be charging hundreds of dollars a year membership when you look at the alternatives. Some days only a couple of posts are made. To be honest, it's 'quiet' to the extreme. 4. I would assume that a large proportion of existing 'Members' have taken advantage of the NFS Offer and haven't yet needed to 'pay' for membership. As 'crunchtime' for many of these members will occur shortly it will be interesting to see how many decide to pay for membership and how many simply decide to become visiting, non-contributing Guests. This will also have a big impact on posts/contributions and hence resulting value of the Site. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if many passed on paid membership. 5. While I know there are others, I think the initial and constant posting effort of Jacquie, Nigel and Sim should be acknowledged. Getting a Site like this going needs some sort of critical mass of posts. People need to know it is likely there have even been posts made on that day to bother logging in. You guys have certainly done perhaps more than your fair share in this regard. 6. One of the Member Benefits has been the access to Articles. These have been setout well and by and large the content has been excellent. One point of constructive feedback though would be that when you bother to put the day the article will be available, make sure it is available on that day. There were examples when you would go to access these articles days after the release date and they still hadn't become available. 7. Following on from Point 6, I think it's important for a site like this to always be active, current and informative. With regards to future articles, previously we had some idea of what and when articles would be released. There doesn't seem to be anything there now? 8. For whatever reasons, personal/business or other, I think Steve Navra's relative lack of regular input on the Site has been a major loss to the Site, especially in its first six months of operation. That's not a personal criticism of Steve as we all have to decide on what time we have available, but it is an observation. I think many would have expected Steve, NFS or NavraInvest to have had a more 'hand on' daily involvement however there initial sponsorship has been appreciated. 9. I hope some announcements will be made soon on future developments for the Site. To be honest, if the Site still intends to be fee based, these will need to be pretty good as there are certainly some other very good Sites out there that are free and provide some excellent information. I'm not at all sure that InvestEd has yet made a clear distinction of how it is different to some of these other Sites? More feedback/comments?
