Strategies for increasing participation in Zeugma

Postby riverwriter » Sun Feb 03, 2013 11:03 am

Strategy 1: Newsletter

To stir up the return of members who have stopped posting, I want to send a newsletter to all currently registered Zeugmates.

I would like to include notes from our currently active members to stimulate our inactive members to check in and perhaps return more regularly.

I will include all of the contributions in the newsletter.

You may submit by IM or email to me or to either moderator, or by replying to this post.

I welcome any suggestions as to content that may be included in the newsletter as well.

Strategy 2: Twitter

I suggest any of us who tweet start including the hashtag #ZeugmaForum when relevant.

Strategy 3: FaceBook

I can start a FaceBook Zeugma page, and will, if you think there is a useful reason to do so.

Thoughts?

How'd I miss this? Hmmm. Anyway, I think a newsletter or just a note, a heads up, a "we miss you" might lure some posters back. Some regulars who were still posting at the time may think the place closed up for good at the last blackout. You could put a link to Zeugma in the note, just in case they've lost it. :smt003

Maybe simple is best.

It's definitely a good place to start.
