Are you planning on creating a marketplace section for vendors? I would think it would be a good way to offset the running costs. Would allow manufacturers to show new things and set up for group buys as well.

I am absolutely into this. The real question is, are they willing to give us a chance and put their time in over here? I wouldn't even need to charge them as long as it helps promote our site a bit.

Maybe a trail would be in order. You could contact some companies and explain the new startup and offer them to come onboard for free for a time (what you feel is right) then charge them a low fee after that?

Most people would be I believe, you might need to be the one to reach out to them once a decent userbase has been established.

I know some companies like Rogue Offroad, Rago Fabrication, Cali Raised LED, and Headstrong Offroad have already established vendor discounts on some of the popular Facebook pages such as: Toyota Tacoma 3rd Generation/2016+ and Toyota Tacoma Enthusiast.

That's what I'm thinking. I wonder if this is something I should bring to them during the soft launch, that way they can possibly set up before we open, or if I should wait until they can see that we have a steady flow of traffic?

I can ask a friend of mine that owns Expedition essentials if he would like to be part of the soft launch

Mention to them that eventually we would charge them a low fee later.

Maybe after a while when we start charging vendors, all the vendors who hooked up with us early would get a lower fee compared to new vendors.

This is a pretty fair idea as well.

Time will play its part. I foresee this growing A LOT.
