Hey TikiTribe members! I wanted to share with you guys some tips and tricks to being the number 1 TikiTribe member in the nation!
Tip 1: Tell all of your friends from different schools about renting textbooks from BookRenter
While you may be completely in charge about how well you spread the word about BookRenter at your school, it’s up to your friends to do the same at other schools. Let them know more about how TikiTribe works and enlist them to be a part of your tribe. With the help of your friends, you could be actively recruiting TikiTribe members all across the country without even realizing it!
Tip 2: Integrate BookRenter gear into your backpack and school supplies
It certainly doesn’t hurt to plaster the back of your lap top with a big BookRenter sticker to let everyone know how much money you saved on textbooks this semester! By letting people associate you with BookRenter, they’ll remember to think about you when renting textbooks next semester. Plus, your BookRenter sticker will tell even more people about renting textbooks and that can only make the news about renting textbooks travel even faster across campus.
Tip 3: Create postcards or flyers that can easily be distributed to students around campus
Hey, people won’t know about TikiTribe if you don’t tell them right? You can go to your college library and print out flyers using your school’s printer or scanner to make really flashy advertisements. Then once you have your flyers ready go find a spot on campus with a heavy flow of traffic so you can maximize how many people will see your postcard. I think you would be pleasantly surprised with how many people respond positively to the idea of saving over $500 on textbooks next semester.
*Check out the TikiTribe Facebook Group for downloadable flyers and more.
Tip 4: Constantly tell people about TikiTribe by using social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook
As much as we all love Facebook it is actually good for something besides finding out which of your friends is having their birthday party this weekend. Updating your status with info about TikiTribe will enable your posts to show up in other people’s newsfeeds. TikiTribe is a word of mouth business and you need to make sure that everyone has TikiTribe on the tip of their tongue.
*You can share your unique url directly from your TikiTribe Dashboard!
These are some of the strategies I followed when I was recruiting members this year but I’m curious as to how you guys found success. What were some of your favorite tips that helped you succeed in spreading the word about BookRenter? I’ll share with everybody next week my favorite response to the ultimate TikiTribe tip!
