"The only superpower I need is the ability to engineer serendipity in my community"
If you are a community manager you will relate to the above statement. What if I told you it is possible and not difficult? All you need to do is to zoom out and focus on the little things.
Here's a five-step approach to do so:
Step 1: Be in constant touch with your members and have as many 1:1s as possible.
Step 2: Understand them, and their challenges and make a note of 3-5 people who can help them in their journey.
Step 3: Run past the list of people with the member and ask if it is okay to connect them.
Step 4: Make the introduction with context and let them take it forward.
Step 5: Check in with the member if the connection helped and gather feedback.

Learn The Secrets From Rosie Sherry!
Just like how founders, and makers build MVP(Minimum Viable Product) to test their ideas, Rosie confidently says community builders should pick the same path. Launch a Minimum Viable Community, clearly understand what people want and scale things from there. In this session, Rosie is going to cover a lot of the ground on MVCs.
