When we set out to create ArtAcadia.org, we knew that it had to be something different. There is a reason that so many buildings around the world lie derelict. The traditional ways of raising funds for restoration, no longer work. In the words of Albert Einstein,“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”. Not being (totally) nuts, we started thinking outside the box…

 

Thinking outside the box!


 

Membership – We have opted for a membership model. Providing member benefits, tools and resources. Hence avoiding the need to resort to invasive advertising.

Affiliates – Every user that registers is automatically an affiliate, although participation is voluntary. Members help spread the word in return for a share of the monthly revenues,

Community – The first consideration was to foster a community, but not within the confines nor control of Facebook Groups. So we created our own INDEPENDENT online social network.

Directory – The next task was to build a directory, where we can showcase listings, in categories of our choosing. Expertly seeded for optimal exposure to the major search engines.

Directory

 

Global Map – We integrated the latest Google Maps API into the directory. Listings are geolacated and plotted onto a global map. Everything in the directly is easy to find and pinpoint.

Meetups – Local social networking is an essential part of the plan. Frequent face to face meetings are still the best way to meet, greet and compare notes and exchange ideas.
