The Tortoise AND The Hare: Launch Your Community with a Bang, Without Sacrificing Staying Power
Plenty of community managers have learned (the hard way) that a big community launch can cause the lightning in a bottle effect - Where excitement runs high initially, but quickly loses its grip. But does that mean we are doomed to slow roll outs and quiet pilots? And what do you do when your leadership team wants to launch with a bang despite best practices? Join this conversation to learn best practices for balancing the best of both worlds. Georgina (Cannie) Donohue will discuss how to craft a phased launch plan for your community based on battle-tested approaches and hands-on suggestions. Learn how to tap into your early advocates to seed the community, create a controlled environment to establish the ideal member culture, and still get to throw a launch party.
Presenter: Georgina (Cannie) Donahue, Online Community Lead, Pragmatic Institute
