Community Management Metrics

  1. 1. Online Community Metrics
  2. 2. A community must support business goals and the goals of the current (and prospective) community members themselves.
  3. 3. Three things to remember 1. If the business goals are not defined, the community risks being feature-driven and may suffer from shiny-object syndrome. 2. If the community members are not involved in the success- definition process, the community risks being irrelevant to its members. 3. If business goals are undefined, or if community members themselves are not involved in the definition of the community (it’s for them, after all), the community’s risk of failure grows substantially.
  4. 4. Types of community metrics There are a number of types of community metrics that can tie to the business goals: • Financial Metrics • Activity Metrics • Other Metrics Source: “Measuring the Success of an Online Community,” Strategy and Leadership, v. 28.2, 2000
