1. Don't rely on someone else's platform.
2. Relationships are more important than followers.
The rise of internal/private communities…
I am very bullish on more private/personal platforms like Slack, Discord, LMS platforms, Circle, and Mighty Networks. My last company earned many millions of dollars thanks to our very large and active private community/forums.
I've been listening to a fantastic book: The Business of Belonging by David Spinks. Leaning into Human Connection through community is my focus for 2022.
I hope you find all this above helpful, and it will inspire community growth for you this year. Love to hear if you've been constructing your own internal community.
