5 Ways to Get Guests to Your Online Toastmasters Meeting

Maybe this will be a shock to you, but…

As far as meetings go, online are not the same as face-to-face. They need different promotion, too.

A few tips for getting more online guests for you until-recently-face-to-face-traditionalists:

  1. Go through the list of your club’s past members. Invite them to your online meeting to give a speech. They won’t need to travel and probably won’t have anything better to do anyway.
  2. Ask your members to invite their spouses / family members with whom they’re sharing a house / apartment. Attending a Toastmasters meeting with your loved one has never been easier!
  3. Post your speakers and their topics in advance on Facebook. Their friends will want to check them out (especially if they’re sharing some awkward story from their youth).
  4. That friend who always too busy to join you for a meeting 20 minutes away from the office – now lost their excuse (and everyone has a friend just like that!)
  5. Post a video invitation from the club president. Or from the prettiest / most handsome Club Officer. Because: Why not?

Now that you have so many guests that you’re always maxing out the limit on your Zoom Pro account, don’t forget the last thing:

It’s likely they won’t join you if you don’t ask them to.

Make sure you do.
