I received an email from a new SISTERS Club member this week, asking who she could sell to since everyone she approached was already a subscriber and in receipt of SISTERS Magazine.
I was quite surprised by the sister's experience as we had the opposite experience at the Global Peace and Unity event last year. At our stall, our stock greeting was 'Asalaamu alaikum, have you heard of SISTERS Magazine?' About 89% of visitors to our stand had never heard of us!
While this came as a surprise to us, it also means that the SISTERS Club members play a crucial role in spreading the word about SISTERS in your local communities.
It's about sharing SISTERS with:
- family members
- work colleagues
- fellow students
- other mums at nursery/ school/ madressa
- Muslim shopkeepers like grocers/ butchers/ bookshops/ clothes shops etc.
By 'sharing SISTERS', I mean talking about the magazines, sharing information, tips, ideas from the magazine, lending your copies, giving away your complimentary copies, selling magazines to those who request them and more.
I am working on the SISTERS Club Promotion Pack right now - I look forward to hearing your ideas on how to share SISTERS with those around you...
