Cold invite would be contacting individuals for the purpose of asking them to join your forum.

Is this something you practice?

I wouldn't exactly call it spam unless you're hitting up total strangers. But if see a potential member online somewhere and invite them to join, it's the same as cold calling in sales. Cold calling, if done right, is extremely effective, too.

What do you all think about this method?
