Step 5: Connect with Neighbours, and Follow Up
Once people have downloaded the Good Neighbour App, ask them to connect with each other.
Demonstrate to people how to make a connection and make connecting fun. One idea is to make a game of it. Who has the most connections? Who got all the connections fastest? This is also an opportunity for people to meet and talk to each other, now more familiar with each other because of the discussion earlier.
If possible, don’t end your event now. Continue the positive energy with more socializing and eating all the great food!
Remember to send your new connections a message the next day. They will appreciate you getting the conversation started. Something like “It was great to see you at X event yesterday. Thank you for being my neighbour.” They will appreciate you getting the ball rolling on the Good Neighbour App.
