  • Hi sandraberke,

    If you're interested in promoting your group,  you can find great tips and ideas in the Groups Resource Center.  Owners and Admins of some of CafeMom's largest and most active groups are in the Groups Resource Center and they have tons of information to share with new group owners.

    Along with joining the GRC, you can also promote your group once a day in Journals and in other Groups that allow group promotions. Be sure to check with the Guidelines of that group first. Here is a link to the GRC: We look forward to seeing you in there!

  • send out bulletins. create more/interesting questions. go to members profiles and comment in thier comment boxes and tell them to come back to your group with a link.

  • No, sending out bulletins or posting in chatterboxes is not being pushy. People will either come back to the group or they won't either way.

    Join the GRC. Do a mom search and send out invites to women you think would be a good fit for the group. Do a daily journal post. Create a signature that advertises your group and use it when you publish posts in other groups. Invite everyone on your friends list.
