Thumbs up Goal: Bring atleast one new member

Hi all,

Since we have close to 6000 members now, let each one of us make a goal to bring one new member to IV. Bringing just one new member by each of the existing members will double the IV membership. Simple Math, huh
Time: Sooner the better. Keep a goal to take a week to bring one new member.

Now the new members make a goal of bringing one additional new member. That will be their goal. Create a ripple effect. Apply compounding theory. We then sure are going to reach great membership numbers.

No one will believe if you say that you cannot bring one new member being in USA. No excuses. Not asking too much, please just bring one new member and enjoy the results!

Thanks

Any time of the day there are more "guests" logged on than members. Making all the forums "members only" will double the membership right away

Exactly! disable free preview of forums to guests. That will propel the number of members. Even anti immigration folks will count towards the number as it will become inevitable for them to register.

Default Good Idea

I'm pledging that i would get two more members added in a week's time. Would like to see that all the other 5990 members take a similar pledge. There were 3 threads started in the last couple of days "Welcome to new members", "Immigration voice needs your help", "Goal: Bring atleast one new member". I observed that the last posted thread shows up as the first hyperlink on the right side when someone logs into iv.org and was dreaming that either of the above mentioneed threads will be the most active threads. But soon realised and sadened that it is not the case. The current energy levels of the members (but for a handful) are not really encouraging.

If each one of us are not able to get another member not registered, then i doubt if we could convince the law makers and the govt to make changes to alleviate our misery.

One thing is for sure it has not been easy getting new members registered. I sent an email to 10 of my friends who are in the same boat as me asking them just to register. Here are the statistics.

2/10 got registered after reading my mail.
4/10 got registered after me making phone calls, explaining things, asking them few questions such as do you know what is CIR, do you know u can retain your PD after I140, do you know abt cross chargeabilty, do you know that a group of 4 people started this and now it's 6000...........
At the end of the conversation they seemed interested in registering and got registered.

Working on the remaining 4.

Bottom line it definitely involves some effort. Just do not leave it after sending an email. And also do not limit yourself to getting 1 member, get as many as you can.

Core group if you endorse this goal then we can make a quick reality check abt our (all the 5990 members) will and resolve and see where we are. (i'm sure u will as this is in line with your current objectives, i'm specifically asking abt the time frame whether it should be a week or 10 days or.....)

Keep the pledges and registrations coming !!!!!!!

I think the free preview should be limited to 2-3 messages after which they should be asked to register as a member.

I hope you meant people who filed for GC. I do not think IV has much in terms of goals to alleviate the issue with H-1

"Word-of-Mouth" seems to be the most effective way of campaigning! I had sent mails, and left voice to couple of my friends some time back. They became aware of IV, but not yet registered. Talked to them today, and got both of them registered. (kasas & aksrao).

Requested them to spread the word, "IV". I am sure they will read this thread and campaign for "IV".

Thanks
