Discussion Topics Should Be Specific

Take a typical discussion topic in our community.

How do I get more traffic?”
This is a really broad question. It’s hard to answer questions like these. They’re just too broad.

Instead we want to be much more specific in our questions.

I’ve just launched my community, how do I get my first 100 members?”

“What are cost-effective ways to get traffic from Google?”

“My traffic is declining, can someone diagnose why?”

It’s easier to recall examples of each of these. It’s easier to think of people that might know the answer. It’s just much easier for us to answer too.

It’s one thing to teach yourself to do this, it’s another to teach the community to do it. It’s worth it though. Consider adding it in your next newsletter or blog post.
