Hey XR Australia!
Let’s share our best tips for getting more people in the door (or digital zoom waiting room) to our XR HfE talks.
I know XR Sydney were pondering this recently, and I figure it is a global issue, particularly now with most talks happening on zoom.
From my experience, the easiest way to get more people to attend a talk is to target the crowd that’s already pretty interested aka people who’ve signed up but haven’t yet been to talk. There are 30,000 signup’s in Australia This could be for example by targeting a talk to a particular area that hasn’t had one there before but where there are a bunch of sign-ups (you can tell this Via Action Network data). Then I would email them a personal invite and also give them a call or organise a Rebel Ringing campaign.
Check out this
to see where the signups are across the land (you can also see this base topic to see how each state is going in terms of that 3.5 % goal! A surprise- it’s not who you’d expect!)
Other than that I wonder what are some other effective ways to get people into talks that the ingenious hivemind of XR has come up with… Have letterbox drops worked? FLypostering? Facebook advertising??
