My group is naked! It's just me! How to I go about inviting people to my group without advertising in other groups? I've posted about the group on all of my social network sites but I'm just stuck when it comes to advertising on CM...

I tried to send invites to my friends but it keeps erroring and it won't let me. No idea what's going on. 

I've set up everything as far as rank titles, introduction forums and all that...I just need people. Empty circus tent over here LOL

Find random people and PM them or write in their chatterbox on their profile.

Hi,

You can always find these ideas in the Best Practices for running Groups - Please share your tips, too! post:

Inviting Members to your Group:

  • Use an inviting and clickable Group Signature when posting on CafeMom and other places.
  • Share your group link with people who you think would be interested in joining your group.
  • Invite your friends on CafeMom, facebook and your off-line friends and family, too.
  • Use the Invite a Friend link to email invitations to your group.

 

Hosting your Group:

  • Welcome new members and help everyone feel welcome
  • Start interesting and / or fun conversations
  • Host Posts - quote members who reply to your posts and start a conversation with them
  • Engage in back and forth conversations
  • Quote members, Like their posts and replies
  • Offer support and advice
  • Share a nice word - Happy bday, cute pics, feel better, etc.
  • Host special events - event parties, tv viewing parties, chats, etc.
  • Have fun and help create a good vibe on the group

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Denise

You can try emailing random people but i absolutely hate that! and i find it rude honestly. Because if i was intersted in your group id try searching Key words. That being said there might be groups i never thought to even look for. But whats your group about? Maybe try type key words about your group and see what pops up and go from there as far as commenting on posts or inviting people

I just started too but I made a signature that is posted with every post I make in any group that has a link to my group. I dont know if it will help but its an idea and it cant hurt.
