How To Maximize Growth, Engagement, And The Value of Your Community

Track: Best Practices & Strategies | Product: Online Communities | Knowledge Level: Intermediate

Location: Woodrow Wilson Ballroom

Date & Time: Wednesday, November 20th | 2:30 - 3:30 pm 

Far too many communities are stuck with low levels of participation and failing to deliver on their potential. Their approach to growing the community is to send a few emails and hope members drift in.

During this talk, FeverBee’s Richard Millington will guide you through a counter-intuitive approach to increasing the level of growth, engagement, and value of your community. Instead of overwhelming your audience with promotional emails, you’re going to learn how to gradually expand the scope of the community to satisfy increasingly more needs and desires of your audience over time.

By the end of this talk, you will have a clear plan of action for growing your community, increasing the level of participation, and maximizing the value of your community.
