Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of our Weekly Staff Member Interview Series!
This week, we have decided to interview Mr.Panos. This member is a staff member of Forum Promotion, and is part of the Administrative Team!
Now on to the interview!
What can you tell us about yourself? Who are you?
I am a 28 years old male from Athens, Greece whose name is Panos. I have studied Business Management and Organization and I am currently working at a multinational company. I have one sister who is studying Psychology. My parents do not work anymore and they travel all around the world. In my free time, I love hanging out with my friends and with my girlfriend. I am also interested in reading articles and reviews about Apple products. I think that I own more than 10 products from Apple.
What can you tell us about your experience in the Package Team?
I was first hired by Sshadow in June of 2013. I have completed more than 300 packages and I am very proud of myself. Creating content for other websites is a very demanding task which needs a lot of time. That’s why, I resigned in January of 2014. After some months, I noticed that the Package Team Leader (pandaa) wanted to hire one more Packager. I sent my application immediately and pandaa accepted me! In 28th of July, I got promoted to Package Team Leader! So my dream came true!
I would like to mention that the Package Team is my favourite one. All the PTMs are professionals and people seem to enjoy their posts. I became an Administrator, but I will never change my vote here: Group Wars – Number 5 !
Out of your past experiences being on the Package Team, what was your favorite period of being on the team?
I do not really think that I enjoyed a specific period. Every period had some good and bad stuff. I could say that my happiest moment was when I was hired by Sshadow. The first month as PTM was so fascinating! There used to be more than 7 PTMs and all of them were very friendly and sociable. In addition, discussing with Sshadow about various things was very interesting. Unfortunately, he is too busy now and he does not have time to spend on ForumPromotion anymore.
How do you feel about being made an administrator over FP?
Well, it is good to notice that my efforts have been recognized by the Administrators. Administrating ForumPromotion is not easy, but I will definitely try to do my best. I do not know what else to say. Obviously, I feel very lucky and honoured.
What services here would you suggest to new members seeking to better their forums or websites?
If new members are interested in improving their websites in general, they should definitely request a review. Jadster is an experienced Reviewer and his team can help them to make their websites far better! Of course, creating content is important. The Package Team will always be available for their requests. They can even request a package for free. Check this for more information! Finally, advertising in social networks is extremely helpful. Our Social Advertising can help you to increase your page views and your visitors. As you understand, we offer a wide variety of services and all of them can lead the webmasters to success!
What would be your suggestion to help improve the quality of Forum Promotion?
ForumPromotion usually attracts young people who want to advertise their websites. We should now focus on other teams of people too. For example, professional entrepreneurs who own big and successful projects. This can be achieved by posting more useful tutorials and articles, introducing new services and organizing more contests. Furthermore, we should try to increase the importance of our forum currency and encourage our members to post quality messages. Another good idea is a new theme. Everyone likes impressive and responsive design themes, right?
What would you suggest to the members of FP, who are struggling with their forums and websites, what they could do, in order to improve their experience with administrating?
Do not give up! Even if your websites do not have the results that you wanted, try to make them successful! My experience has shown that many webmasters choose to close their projects down because they do not create revenue. This is unacceptable. If someone’s aim is just to earn some bucks, (s)he will never earn a decent amount of money. Do something that you love.
Moreover, if they would like to gain experience, they could apply for staff positions in successful and demanding websites. Not to mention that reading tutorials for webmasters could be really helpful. Nowadays, there are many projects which concentrate on teaching new administrators. Google about them and you will find all the information you want. You could also participate in communities where there are plenty of advice. Our Promotion Directory is the right place to discover these communities.
Are you a staff member over any other forums? If you are, can you tell us about them?
No, I am not. I am very busy with my work and I cannot handle more responsibilities. My days-off for the summer have been used and I will go back to work soon.
If you had the chance, would you come to the United States of America to vacation?
Not really. I would like to go to China in order to discover their culture. I have heard that Greek and Chinese cultures are similar, so if I had the chance to visit a country, I would choose China. I would also like to travel to Australia. I have some friends who decided to go and work there and it would be fascinating if I could visit them.
Which Staff Member would you like to have interviewed next?
Nerdie! He is the Owner and you could ask him many questions!
Any extra comments you would like to add to this interview?
