Are you sick of pesky people who want to support your cause by joining up? Tired of banking membership fees? Had enough of newbies' enthusiasm and goodwill? Here's how to lose 'em all!
You deluged their Facebook feed with invitations to join your cause, and they responded by signing up. Tick! Your work is done.
Keep it all to yourself. Shhhhhh.
Smoke them out! Make them wade through an inbox full of your impersonal fundraising emails.
Don't give them your email address. Make them fill out a 'contact request' form on your website. Then auto-reply with a promise to forward their query to the relevant staff - and don't. Eventually, they'll give up. Hopefully, they'll leave altogether.
Make it clear that this "membership" thing doesn't get them any privileges whatsoever.
HAH! You're really sticking the knife in now.
Leave them feeling abandoned and used, and surely they'll finally leave.
Gradually shift your organisation's focus away from whatever your members are passionate about. So sneaky! Then they won't even be supporting the cause they originally signed up for, and with any luck they'll leave.
You're already showing them you don't care, so you might as well fade from view altogether. That should stop 'em from renewing.
This should squash and loyalists who still think they're special to you. As a bonus, you can squeeze money from the newbies. If you get sick of them too, start again at Step 1.
