1 Year Siftiversary on February 17th

I can't believe it's been almost a year. I won't reminisce yet, but just wanted to remind everyone.

On that day we'll also be launching a new set of community features that we're pretty excited about. I won't give it away, but I think it's going to make the Sift even more fun.

Growing VideoSift

VideoSift now gets around 50-60K page views daily. Although we make enough money to pay our server bill, we don't quite make enough to help us grow the way we would like. Ideally, we would like to be on a couple of dedicated load balanced servers, and we'd like to be able to endow the developers with a bit of fundage for the time they put into VS. I think VideoSift is flirting with "breaking out" to the greater mass of Internet users, but we're not there yet.

As an organization, The VideoSift staff is very geek heavy - we don't know a lot about marketing, or promotion. So, as we usually do when we're scratching our heads about someting, I'm putting it to you all - a few questions:

What's the best way for VideoSift to generate revenue to support its growth?

What's the best way for VideoSift to grow as an entity - where and how should we be promoting VideoSift?

Should we seek out alliances with like-minded sites (like POPUrls) and "friends in high places" and if so, how?
