The Secrets To Creating a Successful Online Community eBook, Now Available!
As the owner of JomSocial I see a lot of awesome communities. They cover a range of topics from sci-fi geeks and gamers to musicians and hockey players. I am constantly amazed at what people have achieved with JomSocial and I often wonder how they got started. How did they get their first members? How do they persuade people to be more active, contribute, comment and post?
They’re thriving and it’s great to see.
But I also see other communities… ones that are a bit empty and sad. They’re like the rundown part of town with abandoned buildings and deserted streets. Not fun.
Why Some Communities Fail?
Some of the reasons for those struggling communities are technical. I wrote about that earlier. I explained a few fundamental mistakes that people make when building a community and showed how to avoid them.
Making the community aspect of the site prominent is vital, and showing addictive alerts is key!
Even once you’ve done all that though, you still need to build interest to get people to join.
If you have lots of traffic, that will happen naturally. Just add a “Community” item to your menu and people will register. That’s what we did on our own community and watching it grow was great.
If you’re not getting a ton of traffic though, building a community from scratch can be a challenge.
