Avoid a Summer Slump

Most groups have an attendance dip by 10% or so in the summer due to vacations.  It is normal.  There are a few things you can do to prevent a potential summer slump in referral volume.

1- Increase Face-to-Face volume
-nothing drives referrals like face-to-face meetings
-you don’t have to do them all in-person with members.   Do 15 minute calls, quick pre/post meetings.  Do more, make them more focused, & do them in less time.  Log them!

2- Focus on your chapter goals 
-Take 10 minutes in group business to re-visit the goals you set as a chapter back in Dec/Jan.  It will help you re-focus and re-energize collectively.

3- Reach out to guests prior to attending the meeting
-Our two best groups at recruiting both do a really simple tactic pre-visit.  When a guest registers a few members reach out to make them feel comfortable pre-visit.  It works.

“See you are coming to our Referrals Group on (Insert date).  Look forward to meeting you and learning more about you and your business.”
