Frequently asked questions
How do I start an online community?
Starting an online community is a commitment, so you really need to understand why you are looking to create one. There are a number of tried and tested steps to launch your community. 1) Identify your own niche, something that would resonate with peoples' passion. 2) Find a place for your community to gather. You can do it on social media, but there are too many distractions. 3) Populate your community with content. There is no point of inviting member into an empty community platform. 4) Start inviting members from your mailing list and social media 5) keep in mind that having a small and engaged community is better than having large one which is not engaged. It's better both for revenue and engagement.
What are examples of online communities?
There are many examples of online communities. From Facebook Groups to gated community platform the number of online networks is growing fast. We have a number of inspiring communities on our platforms, such as A Year With My Camera (community of photographers) Action for Happiness (mental health support charity) and DADAF (community dedicated to dads).
What makes a community a community?
That's a tricky one. Community is defined by its members. We believe that the true community should be united by a single passion or interest. That's why social media is not really a community. It's a group of individuals with different interests and aspirations.
How do you build online community best practices?
There is no silver bullet when it comes to community building, but you can start by researching a particular gap on the market. We have a community of dads (something that wasn't that popular when they started) and a community of window cleaners. When you find a gap in the market, it's much easier to create your community. When you start with Disciple we also provide you with the best tips to grow and engage your community.
