Community building is about serving our members. But it's also about championing those who go the extra mile and support our work.
At Upstairs Community by Pixelgrade, a place where we amplify creative professionals' voices through authentic stories, we made something we could call a Thank You campaign. It's our way to publicly reward and champion all the writers who have been next to us since day one.
We launched this community in July 2020, and one and half years later, we have 37 contributors.
Besides creating a dedicated page for the Hall of Fame, I personally reached out to every writer to thank you and attach the avatar if they want to use it on their social media profiles.
I'm blown away by the reactions. People are beyond grateful for how we're manifesting our gratitude, and some of them already use avatars.
How do you guys champion your most active members or ambassadors?
Looking forward to changing ideas. We did it our way, but I bet there are dozens of meaningful approaches.
