This membership invitation email for business networking entrepreneur and angel, Valerie Taylor Roberts, presented the tricky problem of finding a credible way to ‘invite’ people to become the initial membership of an organisation aiming for exclusivity and referral membership. I decided that, in this case, the email really needed to tell the more or less complete story in a clear and straightforward tone of voice, crediting this highly intelligent and discerning audience with the discretion to decide whether to read or skip: register or pass. Email membership invitation for The Upside Club.

Your Invitation to Join The Upside Club. A Unique Community of Entrepreneur Advantage.

Dear Amit,

Being an entrepreneur is neither career nor profession.

It is an all absorbing approach to life and work that comes to direct most, if not all, of your decision-making: where you base yourself with whom you associate and socialise where you travel to what you read, watch and think the purchase decisions you make the interests you choose to explore.

The Upside Club has been founded by prominent entrepreneurs and investors to recognise this influence and to provide entrepreneurs with privileges and advantages enhancing their lifestyles in any way possible.
