A challenge I want to share with you.
So, I am trying to elaborate tactics to build a small group of “core-users” or “super-users” in an early-stage community. They are supposed to have the role of engaging the other newcommers.
Since there will be a lot of registrations and newcommers, and I am atm the only Community Manager (without volunteers or similar), I won´t be able to have personal conversations with all of them nor writing personal messages to all of them. My first thought was to first observe how things go and then approach the members with the most contributions within X days, but
- I´m not sure if “contributions within X days” is an accurate metric to identify future power-users
- Not sure if it´s a good idea to actually “wait and see how things develop” rather than taking action early on.
I´d love to know if there are known indications that hint that a users has big potential for becoming power-users in the future, so I can focus on those users at an early stage.
