Your community is the most valuable asset you have. It is the core of all knowledge you collect and the pillar of partnership for every change you lead. Your community enables you to understand what works - and deliver it. To enter the community page of your site, enter the admin interface and select “Community” on the top bar. Within the page, you can see all of your community members.
There is no one way to expand your community, but several. Each of the following methods is also relevant for single projects, although you don’t have to focus on specific projects to attract members. Here are a few things to consider:
Launching high profile projects: You do not manage a community for the sake of managing a community. Rather, you do so to help promote the greater good of the community. Leveraging community wisdom to make better decisions about shared resources will make your community more attractive for everyone. People will start looking for you!
Uploading lists of users: You can reach out to potential members and invite them to your community by uploading their names and email addresses to the site. Then, you can ask us to send them an email to connect them with all current projects.
Sharing in social networks: You can share the site URL address on Facebook and Twitter and invite participants to take part in relevant projects. You can also target your audience through maximum outreach and minimum costs by sponsoring relevant posts.
Promoting on your website: You can show a “pop-up” invitation to all users entering your homepage, integrate (in various places) invitation banners with a direct link, or publish contents from your consulting projects, with a link to the project itself.
Initiating a PR campaign: The very existence of a consulting site might interest local and national media. You can share news about decisions you’ve made following the advice you received and include quotes of individuals who’ve made an impact.
Get in touch with us if you want to perform some of the site’s advanced features: importing and exporting Excel files, sending email updates to specific groups in your community, or updating certain fields to signify specific user participation for various actions. These advanced features require a paid subscription.
