How do you first get started building a community?
Every company wants one! But where do you start?
What does a healthy community looks like, and how to put the right pieces in the place from the beginning.
Turns out it’s extremely simple, yet easy to avoid because the task can seem very daunting.
Here’s the secret…
One Person At A Time

Want A Foolproof Community Building Strategy
Step 1: Pick up your phone, and call a user/customer. Ask them about themselves. Ask them about their experience with your company. Make a personal connection.
Step 2: Invite them to a private facebook group for your customers.
Step 3: Introduce them to the group and help them get involved in the discussions.
Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
It may seem tedious, but once it’s all done…
…nothing is stronger than a well built community.
