Continuing the discussion from What's your base engagement level?:
@Suzi_Nelson, would it be possible for you to elaborate a bit on this type of communities:
My Ukrainian goat farmers community might become a similar case once I launch the software I’m developing for goat farmers.
In particular, why it is not an open community like Discourse, where more and more people are attracted to the product partly because there is lots of information and use-cases of its applications, available publicly.
Also, it would be interesting to find out from feverbee members about other types of membership-only communities that you saw flourishing successfully.
What are the key success factors?
What are the key differences to open communities in terms of engagement?
