[bksvol-discuss] Re: Volunteers as Recruiters for New Bookshare Members?

Hi Scott and everyone!

I couldn't think of anything specific when this was first posted, but I have since then done something to hopefully further an interest in Bookshare.

I forwarded the Bookshare blogg entitled:

Sunrise or Tsunami  The Rise of Digital Books in the Classroom

to my husband suggesting he forward it to anyone who would be interested at work. He works at Illinois State University. He forwarded the blog post to Disability Concerns on campus. I didn't know whether they were familiar with Bookshare, so I was hoping he would forward it there.

Hi Everyone,

I just met with Bookshare's Marketing Department. They would like your advice and your help.

Marketers are always watching trends and asking questions about ow to change them. They have noticed several positive trends:

  Your levels of engagement
   The fact we have about 100,000 books and 100,000 members
  The increase in numbers of new adult members

They are wondering:

What do you say to your friend, or anyone else who you think would benefit from Bookshare, when you recommend that they join? Would you be willing to reach out to a handful of people you know to encourage people to join Bookshare? Would it help if you could offer them a free trial month as a "holiday gift" from you?

Let me know here on list and I will communicate your responses to them.

Thanks!
