🙆 How to create differentiation in a crowded space?

Have you ever felt out of your depth, like a fraud, and just guessed/bullshitted your way through the situation, petrified that at any time, someone was going to call you on it? - Mike-Cannon Brookes

Be authentic. Ask yourself that if you were a part of a community, what would you seek? Staying true to yourself is the only way to connect and attract people who have the same interests as you. Connect with people who have the same niche as yours and if they like what they see, you’ll end up with a community that’s unique to you.

In 2018, I took a Udacity course in front-end web development and found the community managers to be stellar advocates who were really motivating. I was looking to break into tech, and got inspired and started applying for community-type jobs as a result. I landed my first gig at Khan Academy, where I led and managed volunteer groups for a year before moving onto Quora to oversee writer and power user programs, and am now doing the same at Retool. - Alina Din, Community Manager at Retool
