Create something worth building a community around

If you create a great product, communities will inevitably form, with or without your help.

However, building a community around a mediocre product will be very difficult.

Identify and recruit your thunderlizards

Most people are oblivious to communities forming around their product.

If you have a great product, you have to find self-appointed evangelists and ask them to help you. If you can't find them, you may not have a great product.

Assign one person the task of building a community

Assign one person the task of building a community

A community needs an identifiable hero and inspiration from within the company.

Give people something concrete to chew on

Give people something concrete to chew on

Your product should be "customisable," "extensible," and "malleable." Consider Adobe Photoshop. Without the company's plug-in architecture, a community might not have developed quickly.

But giving them something to chew on means your engineers did not create the perfect product. This will engage and grow the community.

Create an open system

Create an open system

There are two requirements of an open system.

  1. The Software Development Kit (SDK) is documentation and tools to supplement and tweak a product.
  2. The Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) is information on how to access the various functions of a product.

A non-tech example is an open system school that enables parents to teach courses and provides a manual for parents on how to teach.

Welcome criticism

Companies often feel great if their communities continue to say nice things and buy their products, but if the community says anything negative, the company will retract their community efforts.

This is not good for a long-term relationship. However, if a company welcomes or celebrates criticism, it will cause stronger bonds to form with its community.

Foster discourse

Discourse or verbal exchange should be encouraged. Any company that fosters community building should participate in exchanging ideas and opinions.

Your website should provide a community forum where customers and employees can engage with one another. This will help you to listen to what they say.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
