All thriving communities have one thing in common.
Their members are motivated to post content and engage with other members. They don’t feel that community participation is a chore. It’s a pleasure. It’s fun. As soon as they post, they’re checking their notifications to see who’s replied.
And as soon as they see something they like, they share it and check back to see who engages with it.
A thriving community builds its own rewards.
Your job is to kickstart that process and tell people which content people most want to see. Do that right and you should find that taking part in the community is enjoyable and addictive.
That’s all for now! In the next post, we’ll move into community growth.
