Dear Members and Visitors,

Please help NG out and donate, else the site will be forced to shut down due to insufficient resources.

Many upgrades have been put in place to ensure that the site is FASTER, EFFICIENT and the user has a greater experience.

We have also made greater attempts to take trolls and spammers of the site.

We have to hit our goal, and I urge each member/user to donate a little bit towards the community.

Love,

Rohit

    Rohit,

  2. Tango

    Rohit jaan,

    1) First of all make this a sticky topic at top.

    2) Makes me sad that just two ppl responded.

    3) Folks you can also send $ 50, which is not even equal to 10 ppl watching a film at a metro multiplex.

    Ok, coming to things Rohit, should I route it as before via our common friend? Or let me have an Indian a/c with State Bank Of India, Syndicate Bank or Axis Bank.

  3. Tango

    Aditya bro you can put in $ 40 or 50, depending on what you can spare.

    As you know boond boond se sagar banta hai :-)

    Hey Rohit,

    Where’s the donation link? I can’t see it.

  7. iitianWay

    Rohit ..u said something about India transfer things…no updates??

    Rohit, Every thing requires some marketing…see how suprabh is reviving posts/comments..even praising my type of people for no reason… and bringing back gone ones!!
    I strongly think outsource this donation thing/task to him ..he will quickly fill the coffer…if u r really serious and feel so about donation target!

  8. suprabh

    Found the link, did my bit of contribution :)

  9. Gorilla

    i have some unsolicited advice on this.

    i dont think this ‘donation’ strategy is a viable long term business model. also it sounds very ‘embarrassing’.

    you should either go for either subscription or advertising as a revenue model, or may be a combination of both.

    A . subscription

    1. it should be mandatory for all members unlike ‘donation’. i mean why should only the ‘conscientious’ pay while ppl like me have free fun.

    2. go for a high number of subscribers rather than a high rate. any product catering to india has to focus on ‘volumes’.

    3. subscription shud be very low, may be as low as 1 dollar a month as many of the subscribers to the site are students, young adults not earning much. also even those earning well may not want to commit huge amounts of money to a blog.

    4. subscription must be broken into small amounts. most kids are more likely to pay one dollar a months (rs 50/-) than 12 dollars a year (rs 600/-) at a go. also that way they have the option of not subscribing from the month they are not enjoying.

    5. the mode of payments shud be more friendly to those who dont have a credit card etc. i mean rohit u cud be in USA bt many of ur subscribers are in allhabaad and muzaffarnagar. dont be myopic like srk, focussing just on overseas. look at volumes/footfalls u can get from india @rs 50/- per head it will be huge. so have some simpler ways like may be depositing money in a bank account (SBI wud be an ideal bank) also available to those who dont flaunt a credit card.

    6. with subscription’ the posting rights shud become ‘democratized’. every subscriber shud have it. but to avoid spamming it cud be limited to one or two posts a month. many may not even use it but it gives them a sense of fair play. as for your writers who are regular, prolific and ‘better’ (and you must have a scientific way to describe a ‘better’ writer, may be based on number of views) you can give them a higher number of posts per month, may be unlimited as it exists now.

    B. Advertising –

    1. advertising as a revenue model will only work if the traffic is high. so chuck the ‘quality’ farce, go all out for high volume of hits

    2. profiling internet users is a tough task. so dont bother abouut ‘niche products’. go for GEC products ( As defined by the world of internet).

    3. to have high footfalls make sure to see that ‘better’ material is displayed better and longer (may be linking the number of views to stickiness)

    4. have some original material like breaking news etc on bollywood. this may involve spending on hiring ppl but may get you ‘mainstream media space’ as opposed to ‘just a blog’ positioning

    5. respect the reader/viewer/subscriber. and cater to the advertiser. no body else is relevant, least of all pseudo-intellectual custodians of ‘quality’ (as defined strictly by their sensibilities.)

  15. Alfa.one

    At the outset, welcome back. Was missing ur posts and comments !!!

    Nice suggestions, though could not understand much the sl. no. 2 (advertising)

  16. danish

    @lafa.one – thanx!

    but what is so difficult in understanding whatever suggestions i have given for increasing advertising revenue?

  17. danish

    sorry alfa.one – i mistakenly typed r name as lafa.one.

    so accept my apologies before i get banned again.

  18. film_maker

    there are many issues with your ideas, although well intentioned.

    let me say a few –

    is wikipedia embarrassing when they ask for money to keep their server costs?

    who will maintain some suggestions on a full time basis?

    some ideas are good, like adding incentives for posts.

    but that does not keep NG alive from a financial model perspective.

  19. danish

    @film maker – plz dont be offended. wat i meant was why shud u ‘request’ for something (donation) that is ur right (subscription) u provide all users a service and u have a right to charge for it. but it shud be even (everyone pays).

    thats my main suggestion. and thats wat is likely to make money flow in ( hopefully – though u wud know better)

    and if a decent amount of money comes in – maintainence and manpower wont be a problem.

    right now – think in terms of 5000 and 10000 subscribers instead of 10 ‘donators’.

    and if these suggestions are not viable (u kno more abt ur business) Then simply ignore them. or use them partially taking viable parts.

    “dont be myopic like srk, focussing just
    on overseas. look at volumes/
    footfalls u can get from india
    @rs 50/- per head it will be
    huge.”

    …And Danish is Back!!!!!

    Welcome Yaar.!
    :D

  21. Gorilla

    I second most of the suggestion of Danish related to advert. However, I do not see anything wrong in asking for contribution.
    NG had been a social media where free idea share concept attracted many. Forcing to pay may not work. It will be like facebook asking FB users to pay.
    Other revenue share model apart
    1. Value added services like paid NG member meet, will love to know …. Maybe Danish is actually Akshay Kumar due to his good business acumen. :)
    Example – meet Danish, tashan, suprabh, tango, shetty and ank in person.
    This will work will long associates of NG
    2. Liaising with companies who make games on movies…..put them on NG. Anyone who plays those games frm NG can give rev to NG…or those companies can pay on pay per use model.
    Serious ideas on 1and 2 can be implemented.

  22. Alfa.one

    “sorry alfa.one – i mistakenly typed r name as lafa.one.”

    @ danish – NO ISSUES and no need to apologies. I have only shown my happiness after seeing u here back on NG and wish u to remain here for ever. And seriously, i didnt get much about advg. as I am not familiar with the subject of Adv. & Mktng.

  23. danish

    @serenzy – thanx yaar!

    waise bhi apne se chhoton ke bhaashan sune bahut din ho gaye the. so aapne aate hi suna diya on my post.

    @gorilla – good ideas.

    @alfa,one – thanx!
