Community building tips?
Shared by edgargagocarrillo · 18d ago · 13 comments

Hello!

With the further development of the platform we want to build a community around the platform so anyone who want to contribute and improve any part of the platform can do it and be featured in our platform.

Also we were wondering slack Vs telegram Vs a traditional blog in order to create a whole community about job search + digital skillset development.

Thanks in advance!

Best,
Edgar

The book "Get Together" is a great place to start for anyone new to the space.

It's a lightweight and pragmatic handbook on community building written by people who cultivated early Facebook and Instagram communities before teaming up to help the community building efforts of organizations around the world.

Check out some of the key takeaways on the authors' blog: https://research.people-and.com/build-a-community-with-people-not-for-them-e6d8f1afa83e

I thought as much but thought of informing you nonetheless.

We're going through it now too. My feedback is hand to hand combat until you've found absolute product market fit. Firstly, because you engaged on Pioneer, I checked out your site -- simple as that.

Secondly, have more conversations about the problem you're trying to solve. Have more conversations with the people who you're solving the problem for. Have more conversations on the behalf of your community.

To answer your question more directly and tactically, do it all. Write traditional blog posts and share them. Also, just hangout in more areas and where conversations around your community are relevant to your service and add real good bro vibes.

I wonder whether there is an opportunity between what you do and us https://skilledup.life. Perhaps something to explore later on as we are both in the very early stages of our journeys. My initial thoughts.

Unskilled >>> pportfolio (competition based skills) >>> Land first job
Unskilled >>> pportfolio (competition based skilled) + https://skilledup.life (real world project) >>> land dream job

Maybe we can have a call About it?

Let see how we both progress over the next few months. Pre-mature partnerships rarely works in my experience.
