We are currently looking to revamp our welcome messages and some of our engagement tactics on Cancerconnection.ca - an online community for ppl diagnosed with cancer and caregivers.
We are curious what other online health communities are doing because often people are joining our communities due to circumstances rather than interest.
We are currently encouraging people to Introduce themselves, or linking them to topics they might be interested in or doing one large welcome message in our “Introduce Yourself” thread. I could virtually feel you all shutter when you read that.
Any tips you can offer would be greatly appreciated. It’s tough when you run a community that nobody ‘wants’ to be part of if you know what I mean.
Thanks in advance,
