  Hi!
    My name is Jessica. I became a group owner today. I'm still learning all the things I need to know, but I don't have any members yet.
    One of the things I read was to make a siggy to introduce people to my group, but how can I do that when most groups don't allow you to promote other groups in theirs?
    Any advice on promoting my group that anyone can help me with is appreciated! (I already posted in the promoting my group forum.)

Hi,


Here are some tips on how to promote your CafeMom group:

1. Post a link to your group on The Recommended Groups thread.
2. Create a signature that links to your group and use it on groups when posting and replying. (Just check the groups guidelines to see if it is allowed. (All CafeMom owned groups allow it)
3. Send a PM invitation to your friends on CafeMom.
4. Send an email to all of the Moms you know with a link to your group.

Denise

The Siggy Emporium is a great place to get a custom made siggy done.  I think most cm run groups allow siggy use, and my groups do too so just find out if a group allows it before using them.  I think the best way is just word of mouth and encouraging your members to invite their friends.  Give out free siggies to your members, like a "Proud member of *insert group name*" and then make sure that your members feel welcome and supported in your group.

You are allowed to use siggies in other groups to promote your group. You cannot however just directly say "hey I just created ____ so click this link and join my group!"

  Gotcha. There are some groups that don't even allow siggies though.
