What's the best way to get members to join my group?

I just started this group and I'm having a horrible time trying to get people to join. I've promoted, sent out messages and welcomed every member into the group. Still, numbers are low. Any other group owners have any advice?

  • it depends on what type of group you have, you have advertise in another group like others, or just post in the newcomers group!

  • Do you have a link to your group in your siggy? If you don't, add one... may be a banner or image too. And a brief description... something catchy. That's how I found out about most of the groups I'm in.

  • Don't give up, I started out with a few and now I have about 4500 members. Keep sending out invitations, do journals about it, have your link in your siggy, answer posts in groups so others can see your link in your siggy. Good Luck!

  • I don't have time to engage faithfully in a group. I enjoy doing what I do now. I visit as many of the topics as I can each time I visit.
