Meetup and Northern New Mexico
Greetings from Tal Dagore.
I have a paid Meetup account for the local groups up here, but it comes with 2 extra Meetups so I've set one up for Northern New Mexico. If you haven't used Meetup before, it's a tool for discovering groups of people in your area with similar interests and meeting them to do things. The New Mexico Amtgard meetup is located at:
I've invited a few people on to the group to get things setup, but what makes this really work is getting everyone involved. I need a few things from everyone. It's just a little bit of work, but it is important for attracting more people online.
- RSVP to meetings that you are going to go to anyway. New people seeing that there are 10-30 people already going makes it much more friendly than it looking like only one other person will be there.
- Post a photo of what happened that week. People that are on the fence about going or not need the extra touches. Even if only a couple people do this each week, it is a huge benefit.
- Answer questions from new/prospective players.
