I’ve been talking to my members and have learned that one of the main reasons they don’t engage is because they feel daunted about the level of expertise here and are worried about sounding inexperienced.
I’ve been thinking about ways to address that.
There is currently no new member safe zone. I’m going to try a pinned welcome post which addresses the above emotion and offers a safe place to start the journey (along with resources that support the most commonly asked questions).
I’m also considering a weekly member interview with a diverse range of members so that we can get to know each other and the various different paths that people took (or are on) to get to their current position.
Thoughts on those tactics? Do you do something similar in your communities?
