As our partner, we want you to take advantage of all the benefits available to you (that's what they're there for). Whether you're a longstanding partner or new to the family, here are a few simple steps to help maximize your membership.
1. Add us to your email list
Email is our primary way of communicating with you, and we want to make sure you don't miss a beat. Add our email address to your list of safe senders so you can stay on the cutting edge of issues and opportunities in the New Orleans hospitality community: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Keep your listing fresh
Have seasonal hours? New photos? New menu items? Your web listing is a living document and the more relevant you keep it, the more engaged your viewers will be. We've made it easy to update your information. Login to our Member Extranet, click on "Collateral" and update copy, upload photos and review your business details. Afterall, our website is brand new and shiny so don't you want to look your best?
3. Read the Newsletter
Every other Monday, we deliver our most pertinent partner and industry news straight to your inbox. You don't have to respond, or really move in any way, but it surely helps if you read it. It's packed with marketing opportunities, upcoming event details, tourism news and much more.
4. Attend our networking events
We believe being truly inspired helps establish stronger connections. That's why we host our quarterly Business After Hours in truly unique New Orleans locations (here's a great conversation starter: "Can you believe we're at __________ right now?!"). And everyone who attends is just like you — looking to make relationships with local like-minded businesses.
5. Attend Orientation
Orientation isn't just a great way to get aquainted with who we are and what we do. It's also an opportunity to keep up-to-date on new developments and intiatives that we're working on. Bring your team, send your new hires, and reaquaint yourself by attending one of these sessions.
6. Give us your feedback
Really happy with something we're doing? Eager to see us make improvements? Let us know. Seriously, we appreciate when a member reaches out to give us feedback, regardless if it's positive or negative. It makes us better, so we welcome all comments.
7. Review your benefits
You're paying for them, so make sure you take advantage of every benefit available to you! Check what's included in your package often, and share with your team to make sure you're marking off every opportunity that's available to you.
