Refer other Penny Hoarders to the community!

Briana ·
Are you enjoying the new community so far? Did you know that you can easily refer the community to others you think might like to join as well? There are a few ways to do this: 1. You can hover over your profile and click the "invitations" tab. From there you can insert any email address you'd like to invite to the community. 2. Under the welcome announcement on the homepage, you'll see "invite others to this community." Once you click on it, it will take you to the same field to type in...

I have been referring people I know. I don't contact many of them through email though so I have just been sharing a link to the community on social media. It would be nice if there was a way to invite the same way on social media.

Make your profile stand out by updating your avatar!

Briana ·
While we love Abe, and those adorable Abe-inspired avatars, we also have a ton of other super fun avatars you can choose from for your profile! This is a great chance to showcase a bit of your personality in the community - are you more of a palm tree or sneaker? Do you want to rock out with red hair or maybe have glasses? How do you update your avatar (profile image) you may ask? In your profile settings, if you click "Update your Profile," scroll down to Profile picture/Avatar and choose...

Excellent suggestion @Briana . I think this is the most important part of any online profile. The profile avatar or image. Personally I prefer to use a passport type picture (face and shoulders). Because as much as I love my cat, she's not the one engaging audiences. I am. In my opinion, showing your face is a way of building trust. And trust is the cornerstone of recognition which is important to be successful online.

Good point, and I agree. I'm with you on the actual photo.

If I didn't prefer an actual photo over a stock image, I would probably choose something like a money tree or a treasure chest if those were options. I like shiny stuff

Something like this would probably be my choice for a stock image.

Hi @Briana , I have been inviting my LinkedIn connections to the community. But received a notification "you have sent the maximum invites", after reaching 49 invites. My LinkedIn community is currently working its way toward 17K connections. All of which are internet professionals from US, UK and Canada mostly (over 95%). And I would be delighted to invite all of them to The Penny Hoarder Community. Am I inviting too many too fast perhaps? Is there a limit to how many people we may invite...

Wow, that's great news @Briana . I'll have to think of something more fitting than my usual discussions. But then I also picked up a few interesting facts on my research journey through online marketing. I hope @Kirsten Cherry find a solution that will best fit their needs. It's quite a tough decision to make. And congratulations to @KellyFromKeene , @BeckAtsila and @MissyD for taking control. Always remember that if you don't work on your own dreams after the 9 - 5.
