I’m really new to community leadership and seeking some advice for acquiring some early adopters in a forum I recently launched. I have two but one of those is geared towards an audience I already had and it took off immediately. The other is a different story.
My initial strategy has been to create new topics that expound on an article I’ve found in the industry (agriculture in the US) and then share it via social. I’m always sure to tag the original author in the posts to let them know about the free publicity. But this hasn’t had much success.
What other strategies have you used to find those first users and get going?
