Buddy Systems

July 16, 2014Comments Off on Buddy Systems

The buddy system isn't a new idea.

You automatically assign a newcomer a buddy to guide them through the community development process.

In small communities you can handpick people. In larger communities you need a little more design and planning expertise.

When it works well, the conversion rates into active participants is far higher. People are guided through their first few interactions. However, if it appears forced/fake, it has negative consequences

This only works when the buddies can interact in a sincere and authentic way with new participants. Anything that appears robotic or automated tends to drive people away. 

We're once again accepting applications for CommunityGeek. Click the link to learn more.
