It's crazy to think that the Facebook group we started to share some good recruitment ideas and success stories turned into a home for 3000 people experimenting with Dynamic Recruitment. I guess Facebook is actually good for more than just comparing myself against long lost high school contacts.
The link to “Recruitment Ideas & Success Stories” is below. However, consider doing more than joining the group. Do three things. First, spend a little time digging into the discussion boards, checking out the videos, looking at the pictures (the captions on some of them are great), and scrolling the wall comments. You’ll be amazed at some of what you find. Second, invite your students, brothers/sisters, and colleagues. You’ll unleash a powerful force. Third, share
your best recruitment tip or idea with the group.
This group is like a time bomb of recruitment wisdom. Remember the saying, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” You're providing the lessons that are available when they are ready to hear them. It's education on-demand. It's peer driven. And, it's viral … so they can share the lessons quickly with others.
As a person that makes his living from doing student workshops and writing books, I have to admit that we rarely reach a student that is not ready for the message. This is why I get so excited about on-demand learning tools like this Facebook group. After a few dozen 3 a.m. Facebook messages from strangers asking to add me as their friend, or students from workshops that took place months/years ago resurfacing to ask questions pulled from the group… it became undeniable that this group has a lasting footprint and a meaningful place in providing students with values based, year round, relationships-focused recruitment messages and support.
I hope you’ll choose to join the group, learn from the content, and most importantly share it with the fraternity/sorority members that you care about. Here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2217541386
