Acknowledging the top contributors and public shoutouts/appreciation for great work done within the community is a step further towards building trust and fostering a culture of supporting each other. Encourage members to express gratitude by creating a #Gratitude channel on your Discord or Slack or Circle space.
To make it more fun, here's a free gratitude bot we built for Slack: Samosabot lets you give the heroes of your Slack community the recognition they deserve.
Creator communities, learning communities and Brand communities are hot right now! The community has turned out to be the primary source to gather real-time feedback on products/content, to learn about upcoming trends in the industry and to gain loyal followers/users. Communicating with the users/followers through community helps build a stronger relationship than what social media could achieve. Where there's demand, multiple solutions will come up. We've seen a rise of community platforms - chat based as well as forum based ones. In this blog we talk about the two key chat based community players - Slack vs Discord. How do you know which one to go ahead with for your community?
