What if we viewed our online communities not as rigid structures that we can perfect, but rather as ongoing, ever-changing projects, like a home you renovate over time? And what if the work of building impactful communities in this less structured way doesn't have to be at odds with delivering an incredible return on your community investment?
Watch as Carrie Melissa Jones walks you through Gather Community Consulting’s Community Renovation Model. She shares how she uses the model to teach complex community concepts to teams, develop roadmaps for new and existing online communities, and helps community leaders prepare for the work ahead without feeling overwhelmed.
Some of the other topics covered, include:
- If you’re building a community from scratch, what foundational elements do you need to have in place?
- Where do you begin improving your existing community?
- Will you need to invest in new community software if you renovate your community?
- What might you be missing from your community strategy today?
