With all the great responses coming in we thought it would be a great Crowdsourcing opportunity to share some tips with you. There were a ton of ideas so we have it broken down for you in a few formats so you can view the ideas however it works best for you!

There is also the idea of peers meeting to discuss ideas like in the old 18th Century painter days.

Weigh in with the topic of the day one liner comment to poll the masses is a good idea. Not a survey once in awhile but what does the AR platform think about this subject or in your market how do you best practices address this, that. Those blogs where the comments are the rich potluck covered dish gem dining are worthwhile reads, follows.
