How to get community members to co-create

Piet Kleeßen

Community members are a vital asset to any brand, as they possess a variety of skills and ideas. Empowering them to become active participants not only helps to build products and experiences that meet their preferences, but also fosters a stronger connection and sense of ownership in the brand.

Here are four simple steps that can be taken to foster a more collaborative environment:

  1. Create channels for open communication within the community. Encourage people from all backgrounds and skillsets to share their ideas, thoughts, and feedback. This will also help to gain a better understanding of the community's needs and interests. 🤝
  2. Identify the most active members in the community and ask them if they would like to take on a more active role in co-creation.
  3. Empower these active members by giving them ownership of the project or platform. Provide opportunities for them to contribute their ideas and take on leadership roles. This will demonstrate that their input is valued and can help to build trust and loyalty.
  4. Finally, reward community members for their contributions. This can take the form of rewards, recognition, or other forms of appreciation that acknowledge their efforts. 🏅

These steps worked well for our community project with W3Ride, and they can work for yours too! By following these steps, brands can build a strong and engaged community that is invested in their success. With a more collaborative environment, brands can tap into the unique perspectives and insights of their community members, and build products and experiences that truly resonate with their audience.
