March Madness

I serve on a couple of nonprofit boards in my non-blogging life, one of which I currently serve as membership director for. Our membership drive was incredibly successful this year, thanks to some inventive membership drive ideas. We've already doubled our new member goals, and the program year isn't even over yet!

So why am I telling you this? I've decided I should transfer those abilities to my dating life. Enter Manhunt March. And, like any successful membership drive, there's strength in numbers. I need your recruiting help!

Just like my nonprofit membership drive, Manhunt March will work something like this:

  • Identify possible candidates (duh)

  • Ask if they're members yet (in this case, we'll need to find out if they're members of the "married club" yet)

  • Sell them on the benefits of joining (tell them you have a funny, cute, smart girl to fix them up with)

  • Have them fill out a membership application (get his number and email)

  • Forward his application to me (and wait with bated breath for that finders' fee!)

Simple as that, right?

The other key to a successful membership drive, of course, is to define parameters for timing (in this case, we're talking all of March) and to incentivize recruiters in some way (enter the finders' fee).

If I can blow my numbers out of the water for my nonprofit's membership drive, I'm thinking Manhunt March might just yield a lot of new potential boys.

And probably at least a couple of juicy blog stories.

Now go get out and recruit! And once you find a potential new member, email me. Happy hunting!! ;)
