Invites are valuable! I have sent out many invites just to have people never sign on or sign up and never even start! We get 10% of everything out network earns so of course we want the bast most dedicated guides we can find. I have started explaining in great detail how chacha works and asking many questions before I send an invite and when i started screening them i find i get really good hard working guides! Does anyone else use a screening process before they send an invite? If so let me know more about it!

I still have all 8 of my invites. I've started looking for people to invite, but it seems everyone has invites to spare. I usually leave forum posts asking people to tell me about themselves and stress that I'm looking for people that are serious about the opportunity, but that hasn't yielding anything yet.

Same here! I have tried everything and can't seem to find anyone that really wants to work! Anyone have any suggestions I would appreciate it!!

I DEFINITELY have a screening process. In fact, if you'd like to check out my new discussion I ask lots of questions before I dare send out an invite to someone who is not going to use it. There are some pretty good questions on there that the chacha employees helped formulate.

I would like some information on it. I visited the website and saw that there are THOUSANDS of guides in each category of the underground. I'm wondering how likely it would be that I would actually make any money from it if I signed up with so many guides out there. Thoughts?

I am a ChaCha guide too. I just want to say I love it. Invites are so valuable! I have sent out three of my invites as of now. One to a person just because they asked me on a message board. I gave them a chance because they seemed like they knew about it and really wanted to do it. She signed up, but never even completed a search. I learned my lesson. I then started screening my applicants. That is how I am treating it. They are applying for my invite. I posted that I had invites available, and what the requirements are...over 18, able to work in the US, etc. If they replied back, I then sent them an email going into further detail what the job was about, and all the negatives about it too. After that I asked them to tell me how many hours a week they can put in it and why they felt they would make a good guide. I have signed 2 guides on this way and both are working. The problem I have is, I am not sure where to post I have invites without breaking any ChaCha rules.

Unfortunately, my invites went fast, so I didn't learn to screen people. I ended up sending the first 3 to people who didn't live in the USA and I didn't even think to ask! Learn from my mistakes! lol

Yes I do. I have them tell me more about themselves & why they want to become a guide. So far I have 3 guides that are currently working. 2 that are starting off slow and one that works on it daily. I have 2 more that havent finished the signup process but am hoping they do soon. I have a blog that I posted for chacha. It explains what chacha is and it has various tips for new & present guides.
