In-house:

Nothing beats the resource of potential attendees than your existing patients. In your e-mail, we sent you an editable flier for promo. Here are suggested uses:

In-community:

You, or your group members, may want to connect with other groups in your area.  Below are national organizations with local groups around the country.  Check their directories to connect with their groups in your area.  

You might also want to connect up with groups that are completely local in nature.  Check with a local birth center to connect with breastfeeding support groups.  You might also look for homeschooling or education co-op groups, local farmer’s markets and CSAs (community supported agriculture).

Tips for creating a Facebook page
:

We can create a PC FB page for you, and share administrative duties with you by posting Pathways-related ideas/material on a regular schedule.  You would have full administrative access to post what you want, including dates, times, locations, images, anything else you want to share with your group between meetings.

If you'd like us to start a Facebook page for your Pathways Connect group, please contact Janaiah at janaiah@pathwaystofamilywellness.org

Meet Up:

Meet Up is a bit of a different animal, because it is open to everyone in your geographic region who are members of Meet Up.  It will advertise your Meet Up group to all people on Meet Up (or anyone who searches Meetup.com) for groups in their area. You select a variety of interests that relate to your group, and these will be visible to anyone in your area looking for groups with those interests  (e.g. Holistic Health, Alternative Medicine, Attachment Parenting, etc).  

To start a group as an organizer, Meetup.com requires dues ($19/mo, or less if you choose to join for more than 1 month).  There are no costs just to join Meet Up.  If you create a Meet Up group, you must commit to having a face-to-face meeting (rather than an online one, I guess), and to not use Meet Up as a marketing tool. It is advisable for you to have your CA open the Meet Up group on behalf of Pathways, Magazine, a fulfillment of the ICPA non-profit mission,, rather than you as a business owner so there is no perception by Meet Up that you are setting up the meeting for practice building purposes.

Meet Up has a very useful Help page that can get you started- http://help.meetup.com/
