Top 10 Community Examples by Sector And Platform - your feedback!


(Richard Millington) #1

Hey everyone,

As per a few weeks ago, we’re working to build a big list of examples of successful brand communities by different platform and topic. Would really to get your thoughts on this list here:

What other communities should be on this list? What other categories would you like to see etc?

Hi Rich - I will have my Marketing Manager reach out but to confirm on the list above MacMillan is powered by Telligent.

Not a huge fan of the Discourse examples. Can you use the ones I gave you?

(Richard Millington) #4

I included some of them, but removed others.

Usually because the level of activity was a little too low (NewRelic, Experts, Unbounce, Secops, WeLoveIdeas)…It started to feel like it was showing off what Discourse is capable of rather than the best communities on Discourse itself.

I might take another look at NewRelic and CodeAcademy though.

Ah right, there was some miscommunication then. I literally thought that’s what you were looking for. No stress. :slight_smile:

You’re not wrong, I was actually looking at getting examples of each originally.

i.e. best designed, most active etc…

But when I put them into the same list it looked weird to have really active communities alongside really quiet, beautiful ones.

So the level of activity became a much bigger factor as that’s obviously a factor in the community’s success. Not the only factor, for sure, but definitely a factor.
