Building a community is vital for the success of a web3 project

Decentralization, innovation, and web3 development are only possible through a united group. Building a community earns more authority, but it comes with its own set of challenges.

Creating, managing, and growing a community is time-consuming and requires effort, but considering some pointers may help guide a web3 community from the ground up.

Knowing your community means searching for the right community in the right places.

Seek developers if you want their expertise. If your project is economic in nature, look for investors, holders, and crypto enthusiasts. If you want to focus on content creators, ensure they are expressive in your community.

The best social media and communication channels for web3 communities

The three most popular social networks among web3 communities are Telegram, Discord, and Twitter. Others that could be overlooked are Reddit, YouTube and Instagram. Instead of being present in all of them simultaneously, focus on the ones where your target audience is, then expand from there.

Discord and Telegram are valuable tools to engage and manage your community. Twitter is useful for finding a diverse group of people interested in becoming a part of your community.

Collaborating may help clarify the business's most pressing needs that the community can assist with. For example, if you are building a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization), it is important to bring people closer. Some may turn into brand advocates, in addition to investing in your DAO.

  • One way to do this is by calling out your team on opening topics related to your goals. Expanding on issues raised by others is also good.
  • Creating surveys can help to engage and orient the web3community debate.

It's preferable to have a smaller web3 community with a high level of engagement than a larger community with low engagement.

  • To measure your web3 community, ensure your KPIs (key performance indicators) are aligned with your goals.
  • When you're just starting, every new member joining your server or channel will feel like a victory. Understand where the members came from, why they are joining, and measure their impact on the project.
  • Track the number of posts and engagements, including comments, reactions, and determining whether or not a topic has evolved into a productive debate.

Observing the maturity

Tangible objectives will help you to know if you've met your primary goals. When your web3 community is becoming mature, after solid growth, you should be prepared for a drop in numbers.

  • Mature communities reward brand advocates. Find those who would help you as a community manager by rewarding them with exclusive content or starting a brand ambassador program.
  • Ensure the rules of your web3 community are clear while maintaining a positive and light atmosphere. Moderation ensures debate flows while remaining relevant.

Managing side communities

As the community grows, smaller organizations focused on specific aspects of the project will emerge. It's critical to manage and monitor these communities.

  • Most token-specific communities wish to discuss and speculate on price action.
  • Media. Many web3 members are eager to produce content and media to share with other community members.
  • General. Any big enough online community comes to life independently if members find an open place for free interaction. An off-topic chatroom for general conversation is great for increasing member interaction.

Invest in a brand ambassador program

Once your web3 project is established, and your community is growing steadily, consider creating an ambassador program.

A brand ambassador is deeply invested in your project and will promote and advocate for your brand. In turn, you should reward them for their efforts and dedication.

A simple structure:

  • Community members apply to your program. There are pre-established roles for members to choose from, such as content creators and translators.
  • You assign tasks to ambassadors and reward them upon completion.
