This is a very important responsibility and opportunity. Everybody love to be genuinely wanted, appreciated and that is what 'WE ARE CREATIVE PEOPLE' is about ... The World Artistic Community of Purpose.
AS A WELCOME HOST, you have the opportunity to be on that New Members Friends List and they will remember you for your kind personal words of welcome. Your Friends list is important if you want someone to know about something that you have done or you are preparing to do. Friends in the WACP Community are just like friends anyplace else. When you have friends, you are not alone. As a welcome host, you have lots of friends.
BE CREATIVE WITH YOUR WELCOME MESSAGE: Read the profile of the new Member first and click on their web site/s. See who they are and what they bring to the family... then you will know what to say to them to make the message personal. No one likes a generic welcome. They want to be special and they really are special to us.
After you have welcomed a few new Members, it becomes a natural and the spirit of goodness will take over. What to say will become perfected.
Selling what you do on the 1st communications may come off too commercial and that new Member may (INSTEAD OF LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR COMMENTS)
be turned off whenever they see your name. One last thing... chaek over your spelling and see if you are saying exactly what you mean to say. One mis-spelled word changes the meaning.
Our ePublicist will continue this discussion by adding information on Community Dos and Donts. Thanks for your time and thanks for thinking about others as you want to be thout of.
