good stuff! As you know the onboarding to hive is a lil tricky.
I was talking to one of my creative friends. And just organically mentioned I been writing more and whatnot, shared some of my 5-minute freewrite post with her. And then she was like whats hive, we chat about it. She says I need to sign up. I tell her she would be great, she really strong poet and writer.
The next day I share with her some more stuff, and then she's like ok I'm gonna sign up. A few minutes later, she like ok 2 seconds in, and I'm lost. I really wasn't prepared or thought about helping her sign up, so I'm lost too. Then I try to see about inviting her or doing some kind of referral. Then I finally get to Hiveinvite and try to use it. I put in her email, and do what I think I needed too, and it even says on my Hiveinite account that I have her under My Open Invites, but on her end, she never got the email. I tell her give it some time, follow up the next day, check her spam and other tabs in her email, nothing. That is all to say, its a bit messy and tricky to invite and bring someone over to the Hive.
Now she is a good friend and down for being creative, so this is only a bump in the road. But not everyone is like her, or I have the same relationship. That signing up process can be a big roadblock. And at the same time, it would be wise for me to try to figure out what will be the best way to help onboard anyone, so the next time I mention it and the person seem interested that I can practically help them and actually get them into the Hive...
