Invitation

I need volunteers for something, and yesterday I was in an in-person staff meeting for the first time in two years, so I took the opportunity to make my pitch. Two people have reached out to express interest already, and one of them wasn’t even in the meeting but outside doing something else and overheard the announcement.

This is twice the response in a fraction of the time as I’ve received from all of the text announcements I’ve been making for weeks for the same thing, even from the video I recorded about it.

The learning: in-person invitations are better than remote ones.

  1. >>The learning: in-person invitations are better than remote ones.<<. I keep saying this, you've got to talk to people, face to face, to get them to hear you and commit. A memo just doesn't do it. Nor, a signup sheet.
