    Founder @Rahil asks:

    How do I start building a community?

    And how do I start getting people to join into the community?

    Hi Rahil! Fantastic questions:

    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.

      I did figure out my why in the week 1 lesson.
      But how to know this why would work and also how to figure out a single why when you have multiple ideas..to understand which is the 1 that would work?

        Few questions to consider here:

        Who do you already have in your network who would love 1 idea? So you don’t have to work really hard for you first 10-15 members. And they are active on your platform.

        Which is the easiest to start for you financially, technologically, and in terms of time commitment? So it is easier for you to test the idea out and see the feedback from users.

        Which idea are you most passionate about? Because you would have more motivation to pursue that.

      Also which platform is best suited to start creating a community?
      Should I start with creating freebies or what is the first step?
