100 Members Campaign:
Help us reach 100 members! We are continuing to grow rapidly but we still need your help. March was a good growth month for NLBP with the largest membership revenue to date. But we still need your help in introducing new like-minded professionals to our community. For each new member a current Charter Member introduces to NLBP he/she will receive a $25 credit towards their next renewal when the new introduction joins us. There is no limit as to how many members you can get credit for as long as they are a new introduction to the group. There are so many events coming up all you need to do is bring a friend or colleague with you that might be interested in learning more and register their name with us. Hosting an event is another way to contribute. Easy!
We have begun taping for our new YouTube Channel with the hopes of launching late spring with interesting and varied content. We are looking for ways to spotlight our members and share your unique story of business to educate the public in all the different facets of holistic health and natural businesses. If you are interested in getting on film please let me know. We can also use any particular expertise in this arena and help finding sponsors to underwrite the cost of production.
FaceBook Members Only Group:
We have started a closed group on FaceBook for member discussions. Please sign up and use this sacred place as a way to voice concerns, discuss topics, and reach out to fellow members for daily encouragement and support. It is difficult working alone and it’s sometimes nice to have a community of like-minded professional we can all reach out to for help and encouragement in those times of frustration and equally nice to share our successes with the entire community. Our Monday calls have been such a great success for so many I wanted to try and create that same support at any time of the month. Join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/269489150169117/
If you haven't already joined our open FB business page please follow us there too: https://www.facebook.com/thenaturallifeorganization/
Calling All Authors:
If you are an author of a book please send us a short blurb, a cover picture, and a link to purchase. I’d love to start a page on the website promoting the work of our members.
If you had a coupon on our website please check to see if it’s still active. Many members had coupons that ended either in December 31st or the March 31st. Let’s get those updated.
Proudly Display Our Logo:
As we strive to position ourselves as an elite professional community it is important that members display our logo on their website and various promotional materials that show your professional credentials so we can establish membership as an important and exclusive group. Please display our logo with the “Proud Member” tag line.
We have created a NLBP name tag for our members to proudly wear at our events and wherever else a name tag is needed (conferences, networking, business meetings etc.) One, it’s more sustainable than the sticky name tags; Two, it’s a great identifier for our members at our events and; Three, it makes us unified as members in our exclusive professional community. The tags are being created through a third party supplier and purchases will be made directly through them via a link. I will send out the link as soon as it’s ready.
We have created a member survey in tandem with another organization to try and get a reading on what times and topics are important to you. Please take 2 minutes and fill out this very short survey to help us serve you better.
Why I joined NLBP:
Video is needed for our Facebook page. Send us a candid video 1-2 minutes long about why you joined NLBP and be featured on our website and Facebook page. Video is the best way to get noticed and it helps us attract people to the group.
If you would like to host or know someone who might like to host please let us know. We are always looking for new businesses to spotlight and new regions to infiltrate. If you’d like to be spotlighted but don’t have your own space think of teaming up with another business. Reach out to us for ideas if needed. New introductions through hosting an event is a great way to get credit towards your renewal.
Get your directory listings filled out! We are seeing a large amount of traffic to our business directory and many of our members don’t have fully enhanced listing yet. If you need help please let me know. With Charter Membership you have the ability for an enhanced directory listing that includes your logo, a photo, and a video upload. Also all your social media links can be attached for better SEO.
We are always looking for area ambassadors and volunteers to take on new responsibilities for the group. Members can help coordinate events (dinners, information nights, meetings, presentations), run an online group, present a webinar, or anything else to contribute to the community. We are always looking for ideas too. Please let us know if you’d like to help out.
