This week in community building — Issue 112

My mind is on community growth this week.
In case you don’t know, I pretty much think of community 24/7. Luckily as part of my day job at Orbit, I get lots of freedom to explore and teach.
This week we’re exploring Community Growth — the thing that I feel and know so many people and communities struggle with.
Come along, it’s free and led enthusiastically by me and Erin!

You can't pay money without some form of centralization which negates the benefits of web3.

When we first launched community I spent a long time designing content & journeys.

This time we recruited our members to do this for us.

I will never go back to doing this myself.

I really enjoyed reading this. Community managers take note - if you target these chemicals it may be the ultimate community hack. Ideas:
1) start a “complement someone in this community” thread
2) Members can “check” off tasks and be recognised
3) Celebrate micro wins channel

In theory, crypto makes it possible for users to partake in the success of the products and communities they are part of. In practice, token-based economies are very difficult to design. We’re going to see a lot of trial and error.

Some challenges I'm seeing:

It's easy to start a community on social media platforms.

But it's hard to keep it there.
