After many conversations and presentations to convince my organisation that we need a community (we're already a membership based organisation), last week I was endorsed by my Executive to "make it happen."
I have been on a high ever since, very excited to get stuck in!
While I made a pretty good plan of attack to actually start, I want to make sure I'm not missing or rushing anything. I know she'd like this built yesterday, so I'm really emphasising that we need to take our time to get the foundations right.
Can anyone share a clear-cut plan / list of things for me to cover to make sure I'm not missing anything when starting from scratch? Basically, a Community starter kit.
Bare bones of what I have so far includes:
- stakeholder roadshow, interviews & feedback
- member research and feedback
- SWOT existing landscape
- Strat document inc purpose, vision & mission
- supporting playbooks - guidelines
- Governance Framework
- content types
- research & recommendation
- budget considerations
Planning & pre-launch
- Activation calander
- content plans
- beta environment
- how to guides
- founding members program
Much appreciated in advance!
