    Customer-wise it did bring in more people, some of them as far as 2 hours away. So I would say it was worth it, I guess I should of used an adder instead of doing it all manually, but it felt like cheating to me...oh well, next year.

    As for volunteers, we had about 12 people say they wanted to help out during the months of Sept and Oct. But they ALL turned out to be flakes, not a one of them showed up. Even after getting confirmations the day before!

    So I think I will keep it for drumming up business, but not for helpers.

    Not one of them showed up?
    Consider yourself lucky.
    You could have spent three hours training them, THEN had them not show up!
    Been there , done that way too many times!
    Get them all to show up at the same time to consolodate your training efforts?
    Ever pushed a rope? Very, very frustrating.

    Would that venture by any chance be a quasi-religion in which you are the donated to deity?
    I was considering a move like this myself, tax-exempt, of course.
    Anybody need some Hoodia? Cheap software? Pirated pirates?

    I've learned a lot about myspace over the past 6 months. Overall adding friends is not worth the effort, unless you can do it on the cheap. I found that I got very few hits from my friends list, not worth all the rage.

    However I did get a lot of hits from advertising directly on MySpace, that worked. I bought banners on EVERY SINGLE page in my area and that produced about 8,000 visits.

    My friends list produced very few.
