I just wrote my very first “welcome the the community” email that will go out to new members. I know its missing important things that are in usual welcome letters, like the “here’s some conversations and posts you can participate in” links, but I run a Facebook group and just don’t have the bandwidth to update new links every week. Gotta make do with what you can!
Anyway, I’d LOVE your feedback on this and any tips or suggestions you have…
Thank you for joining our community – it’s great to have you as a member of the DM Engage Facebook group!
Allow me to introduce myself…
My name is Suzi Nelson. I’m the community manager here at DigitalMarketer and it’s my job to help build and develop this community. The main way I do that is encouraging members to get involved, share their ideas and opinions, and help one another out. That being said, if I can be of any help, or if you have any feedback or suggestions, drop me an email at any time: email@example.com
Let me tell you a little bit about the group…
Who’s In It…
DM Engage is made up of your fellow DigitalMarketer Lab members. They come from a variety of industries, niches, and marketing backgrounds – from digital marketing newbies to enterprise-level professionals.
How To Get The Best Results From The Community…
The best way to get started in DM Engage is to ask the community a digital marketing question. We love helping our community members succeed.
The Do’s and Don’ts…
We do have a few rules in DM Engage. Nothing too serious or hard to follow, but it’s still important to take a look before you dive in. [LINK TO COMMUNITY GUIDELINES]
Here’s what you can expect from our community of like-minded digital marketers and business owners…
Members of the DM Engage community post fresh content, cool tools, great ideas, and feedback requests to the group daily.

Sounds like a cool place to connect, right?
My thoughts exactly.
Now it’s time to stop talking about it and actually join in the conversation!
Go ahead and make your first post and use the hashtag #ImNewHere so we can welcome you!
Not sure what to say in your first post? Here are a few ideas:
Post your ad campaign or landing page and ask the group to review it
Ask for recommendations and resources on a particular tool or service
Let us know where you’re from and see if there are any Engage members in your area!
This next part is important.
