Ning’s Free Community Boot Camp
Ning has developed a 4-part community boot camp in collaboration with community management professionals. Our goal is to turn your blank canvas into a living, breathing community. In each section below, you’ll find detailed, action-packed tips to get your community up and running quickly.
Before you invite members to your network, you need to add content so that members have something to engage with. Learn how to create engaging content in our first boot camp lesson.
To have a successful community, you need to have a hook. This is what makes your community unique. Go to our conceptualizing community page for detailed information on how to define your concept.
There are easy steps you can take to make your network look amazing. We’ve collected our best advice into a simple guide. Learn how to create a custom header, add HTML to pages, customize your navigation, and more.
If you want to cultivate a thriving community, you have to make things happen in the community. This means you have to recruit people to join, initiate discussions, organize activities, and create content. We’ve put together a simple process you can use here.
Watch our getting started webinar for a hands-on look at Ning 3.0.
