Discussion on: Where do you engage community members when building social features in-platform, but features are not yet live ?

Hi Liz!

I've been keeping my eye on The Landing -- you all are doing some amazing stuff! Here at Contra, we have a Slack Channel where we keep our users engaged in the meantime. We too, are building new features that will be released in the next few months. I think our Slack Community works so well, because it is a part of our onboarding flow and there is a big value prop to join (finding remote work and other freelancers to connect with). But, I totally get how Gen Zers aren't in love with Slack -- Discord or Telegram have popped up on my radar recently too!

Also, thanks for sharing this Ben! I hadn't heard of this resource before ๐Ÿ˜

Samantha! So good to hear from you - think this is really helpful and would love to hear more about how you integrated the Slack signup into your on boarding flow. Am a huge fan of Contra - would love to catch up and talk shop and hear whatโ€™s worked / not worked for you all so far, given weโ€™re in such similar stages! Lmk if youโ€™re ever down to chat !

Samantha! This is so funny, I actually recognize you from TikTok. ๐Ÿ˜‚ (I'm the you of the Lance TikTok.) Anyway - we're just starting our own community and I see what you guys are doing is great. How can I join your slack channel? The link I see on your site isn't working... (
