Last week I’ve been head down on reaching out to many of our new members, testing a new personal message. Now I need to reply to all of them and measure how much this strategy was effective, compared with the last one.
This week I’d like to get finished a new post about “community for devs” and a newsletter on the last my project updates
Continuing to work on a project to migrate content away from a different customer facing site to our community.
Working on presentations for two events - our UK User Group and our two Community Live events, which are later on this year in London and Las Vegas. The latter events will be customer panel sessions too so am just kicking off the conversation with the people involved, three customer/users at each.
Beginning to cataolgue all the existing touch points for our Community in our customer communications with a view to improving them.
1. Uploading our revamped rules and guidelines (we asked for member feedback while developing these, so I’m excited to see how the rest of our members react) 2. Figuring out and organizing a tagging system for discussions (our platform recently launched this functionality) 3. Planning to launch a conference-specific community, which will go up in about 2 weeks (eeep!). I’m nervous about this one because we’re pretty close to conference (mid-June), and I would’ve loved more prep time. However, I will make the best of it! I’m probably going to spend some time combing through posts here to see if I can gleam some advice on launching new communities within an existing community (so really, it’s like a special interest group taken from our overall community, but our platform refers to them as communities, too). I have a few ideas but would lovvvve any and all input!
Based in the Bay Area but I’ve been toying with the idea of moving/remote work for awhile now so trying to balance my need to quickly find a new healthier position and wanting to make a move that is smart long term.
This is the first of three articles, in the following ones I’ll try to explain why a community is really good for your project as a whole, and not just for devs. How a community could make your product awesome and how to build it. Simple strategies, for devs, that show how to nurture a welcoming and supportive environment.
Is there a proper place here where I can put stuff like this (self-promotion)?
