This is my first time posting here. I manage an association community for civil engineers. Our community has been active for a year and a half. We are contemplating adding some promotional content to our community (mostly just convention ads at the top of the platform).
There has been some hesitancy from some of our staff about keeping the community a “member only space” (free from advertisements).
I’m wondering if anyone is willing to share pros and cons from personal experience from these two mindsets? Does anyone have any best practices to share on marketing inside the community space?
