We are stealing…The Strategy
⛑️ Support & empower each other
One thing I’ve seen very often from this community is the way they lift each other up.
This support and empowerment is how most of them get their following started. Make the right connections on dev Twitter and you are on the growth rocketship.
Example ➔ Jack Forge used to give daily shoutouts and now does a giveaway every new 1,000 followers.
The best part? Everything he gives away are products from the community, which also gives them amazing exposure.
Takeaway ➔ Make outsiders/new people feel welcomed. It encourages participation, which means more engagement.
In terms of growth, the more people get in and join the community, the bigger your own numbers get as a community member and leader.
🚶♀️ Transparency & authenticity in sharing their journeys
These devs are not afraid of learning in public.
They admit when they don’t know something and, instead of looking weak, they get the support back from the community.
