Key learnings from our community management practices

Valeria Henkel

After gaining experience with various communities over time, we now want to share the key learnings we have gathered along the way:

🤝 Get to know your community

Understanding the preferences and interests of your community members is vital to creating content that resonates with them. To gain insight, it's essential to listen and engage with your community. Consider using tools like a community building canvas, such as our @metavalue canvas, to visualize your current state and set goals for the future.

Additionally, interact with your community members by asking personal questions, seeking their opinions, and inviting feedback. By actively involving them in shaping your initiatives, you show that their voices are valued and their expectations are taken into account.

💬 Transparent communication is key

Establishing transparent and consistent communication channels is crucial for building trust within your community, particularly on platforms like Discord. It's essential to keep your community informed, providing regular updates and sharing relevant information. Leaving your community in the dark is a surefire way to dampen engagement and breed dissatisfaction.

Of course, managing time and meeting expectations can be challenging. However, rather than making false promises or remaining silent, it is better to communicate honestly. If there are delays or setbacks, inform your community about the situation and explain the reasons behind it. Transparent communication demonstrates your respect for their time and keeps them engaged by setting realistic expectations.

✅ Keep it simple, but valuable

Engaging content doesn't always require extensive effort. While simplicity is key, it's crucial to offer something valuable that enriches your community's experience. Strive for a win-win situation where both you and your community members benefit.

Consider organizing contests or giveaways related to your project. These interactive initiatives spark numerous conversations, enabling us to connect with our community on a deeper level and gather ideas for future content.

Building an engaged community requires active listening, transparent communication, and valuable content. By implementing these strategies, you can create a vibrant community that actively participates and adds value to your initiatives.
