How Are You Celebrating Membership Day on Feb 28th?
Did you realise there isn’t an official day celebrating the wonderful world of memberships?
Heck, when ‘National Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day’ is an actual thing, I think us membership site owners deserve to have a day of our own!
So we’re leading the charge to make February 28th officially Membership Day.
And we’d like to encourage you to take part and use this day to celebrate your fantastic membership and the amazing people who are part of it.
Membership Day is all about helping to raise awareness of and celebrate online memberships: the people who run them, the people who join them and everything in between.
As such, there’s no right or wrong way to celebrate it!
But if you’re feeling stuck for ideas, here’s 10 ways you could celebrate to get your creative juices flowing:
