We hosted our first ever Community Hour just a few days ago (yay!!) Episode One was a roaring success with speaker Sharath Kurunguty dropping some major truth bombs (see more on this below!) and hosted by Threado’s own Pramod Rao.
With a full house, attendees were eager to have real conversations on building a community and folks were bustling with energy keen to know more on how to build a successful community.
“If you start a community, be prepared to amplify other people’s voices over yours” - Rosie Sherry
We had a very fervent audience who were active on chat and were brought up in the spotlight with their live questions!
💡 Question by Arlen Kimmelman Could participation be the currency for entrance to the "gated" community?
💡 Question by Nkechi What's your thinking about DAOs and community building?
💡 Question by Sakshi What kind of content should you create to reach from zero to one in a very niche industry? Is there something that definitely works for CLG?
💡 Question by Mrinal Bhattacharya How important is it for platforms today to introduce social currency or monetization opportunities? And how can one determine at which stage of the community life cycle such decision make sense?
💡 Question by Katie Walker How do you keep a community from dying out in the beginning stages if you don’t have someone to focus full-time on building it?
And not to disappoint, but they were answered. We have exciting things planned and will be answering these very significant questions in detail. Watch out for more!
“Communities are many-to-many” - Ryan Hoover
The last half moved to networking sessions where attendees were specifically mapped in intimate groups of like-minded individuals so that they could make real connections and gain insights.
It was truly something to see the spirit of community building come alive with so many curious individuals, learning from one another.
It was magic coming alive those 60 mins.
Next what you ask? Signing off for now, but we are getting back to planning an even more enriched experience for you. So stay tuned as we come to you with our next episode which is going to be bigger and better!
See you all at the next Threado Community Hour’s coming real soon!
Learnings from the third episode of Threado Community Hour featuring Cherish Santoshi, the founder of Sawo Labs, and our very own Pramod Rao
In this first-ever episode of Threado Community Hour hosted by Pramod Rao co-founder Threado, Sharath Kuruganty drops truth bombs on how the biggest lesson to learn in building a community is perhaps that it is an innate ability that cannot be manufactured overnight but can only be learned over time.
