We completed the testing of the system. We introduced new features from the extensive global mall directory to the the salary check listing.
What we didn't achieve is to attract the 200 - 300 First Members (FMs) we had in mind. We are below 100. Why? Several reasons:
1. We did not spend much time and money on promoting m&m.
2. We are developing our own insight into SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and www Marketing.
3. Our members have not been very active in promoting m&m.
4. We want to keep our aim to be selective, relevant and focused on this industry.
5. We believe in building a long-term success and word-of-mouth promotion is important for us.
6. Our newsletter roll-out has been behind schedule for IT reasons ["say no more..." - ;-) ] - but here it is now.
While the technical alpha testing is completed we will continue in alpha mode for a while to increase our FM base.
What can you do?
- Promote m&m.
- Invite friends and colleagues.
- Contribute articles, comments, blogs, ....
- Tell us what you think about m&m and
- what you need from m&m.
