Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The 11 Fundamental Laws Of Building Online Communities:



Basic requirements according to me in order to create a successful online community:
- Knowledge (how are we going to build?)
- Personas (who are we going to engage?)
- Business (why are we going to build?)
- Concept (what are we going to build?)
- Product (protect investment/insurance)

Build a solution which encourage members:
- To join
- To contribute
- To recruit
- To come back
- To interact
- To pay
- To be nice
- To provide feed-back

Build a launching strategy which covers:
- Preparation
- Marketing
- Observation
