Two Tips to Increase Membership

I wanted to offer two brief tips to all YAL chapters:

  1. If just one or a few people from each YAL chapter on Facebook friend requests all the people at their school and then invites them to their YAL chapter, membership will explode.  I have done it, and it works. It may take a while to do, but it is worth it. Maybe certain members could be assigned this job.

  2. Here is a code I found that lets you select all of your friends at once and invite them to something.  Also, advertising your chapter on Facebook and targetting your city and school works great.

    It takes about two minutes (must use Firefox):

    • Visit the group

    • In the upper left-hand corner, click “More”

    • Click “Invite People to Join”

    • When you see the list of your friends, paste this into the address bar of your browser and hit enter:
      javascript:elms=document.getElementById(‘friends’).getElementsByTagName(‘li’);for(var fid in elms){if(typeof elms[fid] === ‘object’){[fid]);}}

    • It highlights all your friends!

    • Optionally, unclick anybody you don’t want to invite

    • Optionally, add a personal message

    •  Click “Send Invitations”
