Q: Sometimes it seems a little redundant to invite people who attended the Ask Event to a Point of Entry. I hate to bug people with a very similar message. Suggestions?

A: The two events are very different. If the person has been to a Point of Entry® within the year prior to the Ask Event™ and are interested in your mission, they may want to be Ambassadors at your Ask Event and invite others to attend Points of Entry leading up to the Ask Event. Or, they may just want to attend a Point of Entry to be re-inspired and re-connected to your work. Of course everyone is free to say no to invitations to one or both events at any time!
If one must choose between the Point of Entry or the Ask Event, they should choose the Point of Entry. You can follow-up with the guest after the Point of Entry, cultivate them, and ultimately ask one-on-one, without having them ever attend an Ask Event.
