“How do you build an online community?” is probably the most popular question we get from readers. And it’s a good question because a lot of people want to build an online community, but only a few know how to do it.
The truth is that building a community isn’t that difficult, but it’s something that a lot of people still struggle with. Especially when it comes to growing a community around your blog.
The important factors to build an online community include:
- Creating a following: that is, getting and retaining members. What are you going to offer to people on your email list? How are you going to draw them in?
- Creating content: blog posts, videos, courses are all examples of content you can create to attract and keep your followers’ attention.
- Creating a consistent schedule of posts, so that your followers know when to expect to hear from you.
- Creating a platform where people can interact easily.
- Creating incentives to interact with you.
- Creating a sense of community: through the use of social media, Twitter chats, forums, and other tools, you can encourage your audiences to come together.
- Creating a friendly environment
The Internet is a fast-paced, highly competitive place. It isn’t enough to build up a great following and then stop. You must have a clear plan in place that keeps your audience coming back.
