That's probably true as well Dave. And yet, even with Youtube you still see a ton of people posting questions on FB and in other forums.I think part of the problem is YouTube. There seems to be a video for anything. So actually coming to the forums for tech advice is probably less likely.
That's what I've been focused on for weeks now. Working on engaging with existing members who are still active here, asking them to submit their trucks to the Truck Showcase section, asking them to post updates in the associated build threads for those truck profiles, asking them to submit more Ford truck content that will help attract other members to follow suit and do the same, and posting Ford truck news on my own to try and help spur some discussions.Seeing how things are playing out, probably a better task to focus on for now would be to encourage the engagement and retention of what looks to be a dwindling community of a few members. Don't worry about YT, FB, etc, etc, focus on behaviors and actions right here.
Especially if we can work on organizing videos into categories, to make something of a library. If people know they can come here and find quality how-to info and videos, organized nicely, it would lure more people in.So I guess gleaning info from YT and bringing it here is kind of a win-win, they get more viewership and we get more traffic? Never really thought about that much.
Unfortunately The only truck content I maybe able to share is all the broken things I get to fix at work daily.. If we can get members to start posting more truck content, that should help get more members in commenting on that content, and it might encourage more Q&A too.
That would actually be a great thing if you can do that. I'm working on getting a video upload button added to make it easy to upload videos directly to the site, as opposed to having to go to Youtube to upload it and then come back here to post the link.Unfortunately The only truck content I maybe able to share is all the broken things I get to fix at work daily.
