Ideas from Cramster

I heard about Cramster yesterday. The online study group site is shockingly successful, and has just received $3m in capital to expand. Here are five great ideas you can tinker with  to boost your online community

  1. Are you a parent? Sign up your son or daughter: This is very clever, how can you get friends to sign up their buddies for them?
  2. Karma Points: Those that help answer a question are rewarded for Karma points which can be redeemed with gifts and rewards. Tougher questions offer greater Karma points. Having more points for tougher questions is a good idea.
  3. A Score Board. Keeping score of a member’s post count often encourages spam. Keeping score of how much you’ve helped someone else, is genius.
  4. Online Study Pals: Find people that have helped you before, and invite them to be part of your study network. Genius.
  5. Facebook App. Cramster offers one of the best Facebook widgets I’ve ever seen, and perfectly targeted at to it’s audience.

It’s nearly always worthwhile spending a few minutes to join a community and find out what makes it tick.
