Tips to Get Started!
✔ Share your story! Every member has a story about why they’re a SHRM-Atlanta member, why did you join and why are you a SHRM-Atlanta member today?
✔ Provide examples of how being a SHRM-Atlanta member has positively impacted your professional and/or personal life.
✔ Ask questions about the career goals of your potential members, and based on their answers highlight the benefits that would most speak to them.This then becomes a conversation about solutions, and feels less like a sales pitch.
✔ Plan ahead and offer to email them a link to the member application on the website, or give them a hard-copy of the membership application. Make sure they know to include your name!
✔ Follow up – touch base and see if they have joined or have any additional questions. We all have busy lives, and this follow up can serve as a gentle reminder. If they did join then this is the perfect opportunity to welcome them to SHRM-Atlanta!
✔ Take the time to say thanks! Send them a short message thanking them for considering SHRM-Atlanta membership and supporting the HR profession. Invite them to an upcoming professional development opportunity to introduce them to other SHRM-Atlanta members.
