Sometimes it becomes necessary to recruit new members for your Moms Group; children grow older, situations change, schedules become busier, participation decreases, member burnout happens. Below are 15 ideas to revitalize and get some fresh blood flowing in your group!
- Get a table at a local preschool fair or host one of your own.
- Post your group on the App “Next Door”
- Give business cards to your members to pass out to Moms they meet while out and about.
- Contact your local hospital to see if they’d be willing to distribute your flyers/brochures/business cards in their birthing classes or their new baby welcome packet. They may be willing to post them on their bulletin boards as well.
- Make a FREE website on Blogger (owned by Google). Step-by-step instructions here!
- Ask members to post flyers at their preschools, churches and pediatricians offices, if possible.
- Contact local Realtors and ask them to distribute your business cards to relocating families.
- Post flyers at a local WIC office.
- Advertise at a Mom 2 Mom sale by stuffing the welcome bags or getting a table.
- Post flyers at local coffee & smoothie shops and any kid-friendly restaurants in your area.
- Contact your local breastfeeding & MOPS groups to see if they’d be willing to pass out your business cards or flyers.
- Create a listing for your group on local/regional parenting websites (i.e. Macaroni Kid) and add your events to their calendars. They’re usually free!
- Hold an open house in the fall and spring and ask members to bring along any Mom friends they have that might be interested in joining!
- Make a FREE facebook group page. You can make a public page for potential new members and a private group page if you want to coordinate member meetings, play dates, etc.
- Post flyers or leave business cards at local bounce house centers, tumble gyms, Gymborees, local libraries & bookstores, baby cafes, rec centers, swimming pools, etc.
