How to start building a community: The first step is always figuring out the ‘why’? Why do you need to build this community?
Then figure out what are you providing them. Not just the value but literally break it down: weekly, monthly, yearly – What do your community members get?
Now let’s come to building – Start by leveraging your original network and see who would like to join? Once you have a few members, get them on an interview and ask them what are they looking for in the community. NOTICE THEIR WORDS! These are the words you will use on your communication strategy to get more people into the community.
Please put any follow-up questions you may have. I hope this is helpful.
