“21 Whole Days”

May 10, 2012

It is May 10th.  We are smack dab in the middle of Membership Extravaganza and you may be beginning to flag.  Your chapter might even be thinking that it is too late to be entered into the drawing for a free trip to Las Vegas.

STOP worrying right now!  You have 21 days to form a new habit!

You have 21 whole days before the end of the Membership Extravaganza period.  21 whole days to practice LOVING your visitors.  21 whole days to practice loving inviting visitors.  21 whole days to practice loving having visitors and then following up with visitors.

Here is a secret.  Visitors are bread and butter opportunities for doing new business whether they join the chapter or not.  We have many visitors that have a great experience, find a new vendor or company to do business with and even refer business without ever joining a chapter.

If you view a Visitor as only a potential chapter member you are missing out.  If you genuinely love your visitors and welcome them to your meeting you have a golden opportunity to get to know them a little bit and if there seems to be a possibility of doing business make an appointment for a dance card.  Don’t jump on the visitor with “Let’s Do Business” talk but say simply “I’d like the opportunity to get to know you (or your business) more.  Could we meet an another time over coffee so that could happen?”

We love Visitors.  Whether they join a chapter or not.   If you are reading this and you are a Visitor and not yet a member, please click here for more information.  If you have visited a chapter and enjoyed the experience without joining please share your experience here on the blog.  We’d love to hear from you.

The purpose of Membership Extravaganza is to remind you of how vital Visitors are to  your chapter’s health and well-being.  Keep inviting Visitors every week.  Many chapters encourage their members to do just this.  An important reminder during Extravaganza when the thrill of big event Visitors Days is running hot.

Still…………… inviting Visitors during Membership Extravaganza will earn you a chance to take your honey an a free trip to Vegas Baby!  Where you will rub shoulders (and possibly card playing hands) with other winners and with Ivan and Beth Misner founders of BNI.  We are delighted at the great work we see our chapters doing and this is just a reminder that you still have 21 whole days left to get comfy with Visitors.
