Seeding Social Norms
You’re not seeding activity, you’re seeding social norms.
Is this a place where members come, ask a question, and leave when they get an answer?
Is this a place where members come when they’ve had a hard day and want to share their struggles and get support from someone else?
Is this a community where members can share their successes and others congratulate them?
Is this a community where members proactively welcome each other and build strong relationships that extend outside of the community? If one member is traveling through another member’s town, are they likely to have coffee?
Remember when you’re in the early stages of building a community that you’re not just seeding early activity, you’re seeding the social norms which will help make your community the indispensable asset it deserves to be.
