International Update, competition "Connect and Recruit"

So what have really happend so far?

There have been a lot of new pages in all kinds of language, but only one is in the run to become the winner of this fantastic competition. We talked about it a week ago or so here.

Currently BizTalk MVP Sandro Pereira is leading with one recuit (he told me had two, but they have to comment here to tell us all who nominated them).

So the stats are like this:

Sandro Pereira has recruited Rui Machado.

So I guess it's time for me to give you 4 hints on how to recruit people!

1. Involve them in what you are doing!

Show them how it works, and why you are contributing to the TechNet Wiki!

2. Grab those people that have helped you before!

You might have had some issues and someone helped you out; make them share what they already know on the TechNet Wiki... show them how easy it is!

3. Create an internal competition!

You can create your own internal competition, within your company or community. Remember that all you do towards the community reflects back on you and your company!

4. Force persuade

Use the Wiki force to persuade them to join the community

And dont forget the awesome rewards you get... a Jedi Ninja Stick Figure and interview!!

And remember, the biggest reward is to help the community!

Spread the word and continue sharing!

May the force be with you all!

  1. Good post, like the idea of recruiting.

  2. Thanks for sharing the interim leaderboard! 🙂

    It is an excellent idea and I hope that more people show up to participate.

  3. If you see a typo on this blog post or any others, leave a comment for us to update it.

    Keep it up, Tord! It's the kind of thing where even one person recruited can make a big impact!
