Volunteers

You're often going to need to ask for volunteers to help you build up the community.   Most community leaders go about this in entirely the wrong way.  They ask for volunteers.  The volunteers who respond usually won't have any of the associated requirements, background, or history.  Why?  They weren't bothered to do it in the normal interaction of the community.  Not many people will take on a job that the majority never bothered to do.  And very few will do it with pride.   Don't ask

We overweight our reliance on technology, and we underweight our understanding of community.   In a modern era where starting a new community is as simple as spinning up a new Cloud instance of Invision Community, everyone has equal access to starting a community.  And when everyone has equal access to starting a community, it becomes infinitely harder to stand out.  You should stop worrying about utilizing the latest features, the latest buzzy hack, or installing the must-have application.

The Secret to Forum Success

Are you a forum administrator who has tried to launch several forums, and failed every time?  Is your current forum not growing?  There is one big secret to forum success: Audience You must have an audience that you directly connect to.  You can either: Reach an existing audience Bring over an audience Build a new audience It's much easier to pursue the first or second options, since you're using an existing audience.  The third option is much harder, yet that's usu

Post Your Stats

"Post Your Stats" You see this message in every forum dedicated to forum administrators, and it's easy to show-off your numbers.  Unfortunately, those numbers are entirely irrelevant because they don't take into account several factors: Age of the community Audience / niche Starting membership Fake members Banned members Activity of the members Which community is a better community?  A community that has 100,000 members that's been online for 20
