I started the CHIP process just over one month ago, and part of that process has brought me to host a video broadcast (I’m launching on Tuesday!).
I want to be able to promote the community, but I’m still searching out those 10+ core foundational members. I’m actually thinking I’ll find them by having them as guests on my program. The call to action on my program feels something like this: “If you like what you experienced here, join our community.” In fact, I’d like to be able to connect listeners with the guests on my program by encouraging both to join.
So where does this put my “slow but steady” approach? Do I put audience members on a waiting list if they want to get in NOW? Do you think I should just do the show without referring to the community for awhile until those 10+ are in place, until we grow it “in secret” until we’re at 50 to 100?
What say you?
