Melos Institute - notes on what works and doesn't work for member-based communities
Recording of Wild Apricot Software's membership development best practices webinar.
Quick summary:
  • Ask potential members about their aspirations and goals - what do they want to achieve?
  • Look at how RMM can help them get there. If a good fit, ask if they are interested in joining.
  • If they are, walk them through sign-up. Complete as much as possible. Minors will need parental or guardian permission.
