Community Rx:
Monitoring and Improving the
Health of Your Online Community
Susie’s company just launched their
first online community.
They emailed everyone
in their database, took
out some online
advertising, spread the
word through a press
release and mentioned
it on Twitter and
Facebook.
But after an initial flurry of interest,
signups have come to a halt.

Most of the users just aren’t
engaging with the content.
After just 6 months,
Susie’s manager was
considering scrapping
the community.
But Susie wasn’t ready
to so easily throw in
the towel.
She knew the value an engaged
community could bring to her
company’s business.

Brand Loyalty

>

Profits!
That’s why she conducted a
community health check.

people filling out the
intake form?

Did the registration
page make it clear what
the benefits were for

By mapping out new
and existing members’

Next, Susie compared current usage
to the past 3 months.

discussions to
suggestions to user

submissions—were

And Susie was determined to figure
out how to best support them to
make that happen.
With the results of her community’s health check
in hand, Susie built an engagement plan
targeting her existing users.
And her #1
recommendation was
formalizing the role of
community manager –
and raising her hand to
take it on.

After 1:1 outreach to her community’s influencers, and
working to improve areas she identified as needing
some TLC, the next month’s engagement rates started
climbing up.

…And now Susie knew
what signs to watch for,
to ensure the community
wasn’t in critical
condition again.
And Susie’s community grew
healthily ever after.
