WICT Member Referral Toolkit

HELP WICT MEMBERSHIP GROW

Share the value of your WICT membership with
at least one friend or colleague by June 28

With every new member you introduce, you not only strengthen WICT’s mission, but you also connect them with a vibrant and influential B2B network within the cable media industry.

Summer Campaign Promotion and Prizes

To show our appreciation, for every member you recruit now until June 28 you will be entered into a raffle for a complimentary registration to the 2019 WICT Leadership Conference (a $1,595 value). You’ll also receive recognition on the WICT website and at the Chapter Leader Roundtable at the Leadership Conference! Make sure any new members you recruit enter your name as their referral when they join with the online application.

To incentivize your friend or colleague to join by June 28, we will automatically enter them into a raffle to win a complimentary registration to the 2019 WICT Leadership Conference or a Personal Brand Experience (includes executive coaching and a professional headshot – a $1,000 value).

Referral Tips

Tell the story about why you’re a member. Why did you join? What was the most compelling message about WICT that made you want to join? If there was a person who influenced your decision to join, why did his/her opinion matter?

Provide examples. A positive testimonial is one of the strongest tools. Prospective members will be much more likely to join if they can relate to how you have benefited from membership. Describe how membership has helped you advance personally or professionally via the relationships you have developed through WICT.

Appeal to their goodwill. Do they know WICT advocates for gender diversity? With the mission to create women leaders who transform our industry, our professional development programs and B2B network have helped to advance women for the past 40 years. Make sure they are aware of all the ways the WICT provides life-changing support for women in our industry.

Let us help you close the deal! Need us to call or provide more information to prospects? Simply email Hassana Howe, VP, Member & Chapter Development at hhowe@wict.org for more assistance.
