• Businesses that thrive typically have online communities with raving fans. Their communities can be a small dedicated group or a very large following, either way they have fans that support their work on their website and on social media channels. Without a community, even the smallest of communities, a business increases its chances of failure.

The combination of user generated content on your website from reviews, blogs, forums and calendars will help build a community around your business and brand.

    Social Media & Social Sign-in Integration

    How do you build a community of people who know, like and trust you? And then who also share, recommend and tell others about you and your great company?

    You provide valuable information, get involved, interact, give, make it easy to share your information and then also share other’s information.

    Social plug-ins allow users to log in to your site with their Google Plus, Facebook or Twitter accounts Allow content sharing with their friends with all social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and many other sites.

    Provide features for customers to create user-generated content, such as profile & product ratings, submit reviews and comments across your website.

    Building a community is about creating a space where the sharing of valuable content on a consistent basis takes place. In a sort of three-way manner – you share your information, you share other expert’s information, and then your community shares as well.

    You’re not looking just for an audience who will watch and consume whatever information you show them. You want a group of people who are willing to be involved in a two-way conversation, to interact with others, and to share or promote the information you share.

    And this information isn’t always about you or your company. It is helpful information to your tribe of followers. Information they want and need on a consistent basis. Information they can easily consume and apply to their lives or business. Information they can easily share with others. Information they want because it gives them a sense of belonging and a sense of camaraderie.

    It validates they’re part of a larger group of like-minded individuals and in some cases; it says they’re not alone.
    Rollo May, the great Psychologist and author of the book Love and Will, said, “Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.”

    Social Engagement – Gamification

    Keep your members coming back by letting them earn trophies for reaching milestones! A “like system” similar to Facebook will make your members feel appreciated for their work and contributions to the community online. This will increase customer engagement and increase product and brand loyalty.
