You know you’ve had a successful webinar when you get this kind of feedback:
An excellent talk, extremely useful. Packed with concrete stuff and techno-babble-free. Great Q&A at the end.
We strive to be techno-babble-free, so it’s nice to hear we succeeded last week during Richard Millington’s first webinar with Ning, How to Increase Activity in Your Community.
The event was our most well-attended talk ever, and it’s already getting tons of replay on YouTube and Vimeo. We expect it will be a valuable resource that will reach a lot of people over time who are looking for straightforward advice about managing their community.
It’s even better to hear feedback like this:
Your wish is our command, James! Response to this first webinar was so positive that we’re going to do another one next week….
Community Management Webinar #2: How to Grow an Online Community
When: Wednesday, December 12, 2012, 1 p.m. Pacific time
- Key steps to build your base.
- You can grow too fast. Didn’t think that was possible, did you?
- What is the total feasible audience size (TFAS) of your community?
- If you only have limited administrative power to support the community, too much growth can actually hurt you.
- If you already have a mature, happy, and highly engaged community, is an influx of strangers actually a good idea?
Whether you want to be the biggest community of sports fans in the world or just a private community of committed scrapbooking hobbyists, you want to find your ideal size — and getting there isn’t about papering email inboxes with a million invites. Smart community managers follow tried-and-true strategies. Richard will share some of the best.
Growth is just one way toward realizing a more valuable community, but it’s an important one — and one that nearly every Ning customer will be interested in. So, join us next Wednesday for another get-together with one of the experts in community management. We’ll start on time and pack as much into an hour as we can. We’ll stick around and answer some questions, too. Plus, Richard is giving away an excerpt of the e-book version of his new book “Buzzing Communities” to all attendees. It’s 50% of his book in handy PDF format. Free!
