Growth tactics, Meetup charging for RSVPs, and community memories
CCW is a newsletter about building and growing communities, featuring collected tweets, posts and thoughts from various community leaders.
We slipped up and didn’t get around to sending CCW last week, but we’re back this week!
What growth tactics do you use to spread the word about your community? How do you attract the bulk of your new members?
Last weeks question was “How did you get the first 100 members to join your community? Any actionable tips for those just starting out?”. 16 of you replied, with 5 being solo community builders and 11 having some form of team.
Reply with your thoughts on this weeks question for a chance to be featured in next weeks email!
Meetup announced some controversial changes this week regarding charging members to RSVP to events.
A handful of recommended readings from the past week.
