Leveraging slack to create a community
If you want to create a successful online community, you’ll need to follow a few steps. These tips can help you build a strong community that will provide value for your company.
First, you must identify the Slack community you’re interested in. You can do this by using search tools, such as Wistia and Piktochart. When you find a community that you think is right for your business, take a moment to learn about the members and their interests.
Next, you must ensure you have a strong community policy. This will include guidelines for how to engage and interact with other users. The rules will also prevent spam and allow you to make the most of your community.
Developing an effective and transparent community can be a great way to share ideas and feedback. However, it’s important to avoid self-promotion. As a community manager, you’ll want to ask for feedback from your members and delegate some of the housekeeping tasks to your team.
Finally, make sure to invite people who would be a good fit for your community. For instance, if you’re a digital marketer, you could create a channel dedicated to content marketing. Or if you’re a product designer, you could have a channel dedicated to product development.
Creating a thriving community takes a lot of work and time. It’s critical to plan ahead so that you’ll be able to provide the most value for your members. Otherwise, you may end up wasting resources or having users abandon your group.
Another important part of building a successful online community is scheduling activity. By arranging your schedule, you can ensure you’re not wasting time on Slack. Often, Slack channels are overstuffed with conversation threads. But it’s better to leave some channels unfilled to keep your productivity up.
You can leverage your email list to promote your Slack community. Consider inviting members to write guest posts for your site or blog. You can even host AMAs (Ask Me Anything) events. Using social media and blogs are also great ways to promote your Slack community.
