Key #1: Regular Communication 

Email your users frequently to remind them to switch over to Generous with links to sign-up to Generous.

Give them a time based deadline of the switch over. We recommend a shorter deadline of 4-6 weeks to give a sense of urgency. Remember, a clearly articulated deadline helps with purposeful action from users.

Key #3: Switch Contracts
