🎯 Measuring community's impact is a key step to know you're an inch closer to achieve your community milestones!
We interviewed a bunch of community builders and here are some real-life stories that helped them reassure, they've nailed the art! 💯
Max: There's someone called Doc Williams who is a content creator and started out in the community and did his hundred days basically just wanting to start a YouTube channel around all the cool stuff he was doing. And now he's up 5k subscribers on YouTube and he's helping lots of other people now learn to know code and building a business around that.
Vasil: Member was looking to learn about marketing automation software. When the customer support, wasn't very responsive, but one of the community members who was an expert in that software was able to jump on the call, screen share, and guide her through and help her with campaigns.
Mitali: One of my community members messaged me that he was traveling back from a hill station and he stayed in Delhi for an extra day because he was staying with a community member he had met through a coffee chat. He was spending time with him getting to know him face to face. People were actually interacting with each other to build those personal network also.
Rafy: So we got five coffee from some unknown person, like who we even don't know from some part of the world. There is someone in the world who paid you because of what you do and you don't even know that person, then that feeling is amazing.
Jared: We've got a tons of people hired probably far over a hundred hundreds of people hired found people for roles and help companies scale up companies get noticed help companies acquire customers, help sponsors reach more people.
Marie: Our community is always looking for designers, clothes, where to get it, what to get and ask questions and just to be, for me, it's all about like, how can I help you? How can I be of service to you? So if I had one thing, I wanted them to be able to take away from this. Even more than anything is that they found their people.
The first 30-days in any role are equal parts exciting, overwhelming, and confusing. It’s also really important as it’ll set the tone and direction of your role for years to come.
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.
