This is a crucial part of your community’s success – you need members to have access to your community and see your excellent content. Here’s how to give members access to your community.
How to invite members to your community
We’ve given you a couple of ways to invite members to your community. Here's a short video explanation of how you can do this:
How to invite Members with a signup link
On the Invite members page you'll find a singup link. You can then share the link in any way you like by selecting Share. For example, you share the link on your social media pages or on your website.
How to invite Members using their email addresses
On the Invite members page under the Via email section you can email your contacts directly to invite them to your community.
You can view and customise the invitation email that will be sent to your contacts by clicking Edit. You can also click Send test to get a version of the email sent to your inbox for you to try it out.
Once you're happy with the email you can start adding the email addresses.
Then just paste or type your invitees’ email addresses into the Send box, making sure to either separate each address with a comma, a space or a line break. We recommend pasting the email addresses – it saves you time and avoids any of those pesky typos!
You can choose at this stage whether to add your invitees to any groups straight away – you can choose from the drop-down menu.
Once you’re happy with all of this, just hit Send.
