  40. meetups • what: gathering in a social place (pub or community space) to meet other people with the same interests • tools to use: meetup.com, upcoming.org, eventful.com • post it to your forums, blog & send a message out to your VIPs • give schwag away, no big speeches • let people interact + be available
  41. meetups • the best meetups are organized by the ‘fans’ and community members themselves. providing the tools, a couple of pitchers of beer and some presence (not central, though) is the best.
  42. conferences • there are tons of conferences putting out calls for submissions everyday • resources: confabb.com, eventful.com, upcoming.com • take all pitches out of your submission • research subject areas that matter to conference-goers and find one that you are an ‘expert’ on • tell a compelling story
  43. conferences • once you get invited: • if you want to be invited back to the conference circuit, keep all pitches out of your presentation • tell user stories • talk about your competition • attend all mixer events and build relationships, don’t pitch
  44. karma • what you give to your community, you get back tenfold • don’t have a business objective, have a business objective, an employee objective, a local community objective, an environment objective and a customer experience objective (Clif Bar)
  45. karma • be part of a larger movement that relates to what you are doing • “If you see a parade, get in front of it” Tim O’Reilly • Be part of the change you want to see in the world • Creates amazing goodwill
  46. fun stuff • good vibes: • thank you’s (i.e. ma.gnolia, maya’s mom, facebook ‘pokes’) • vip programs (i.e. ma.gnolia gardeners) • member highlighting & discovery (i.e. featured members, new members) • hold feedback contests, etc. and send out schwag as thanks • greeting program for new members
  47. summary • all great tools for promoting your site, but what about community? • how do these tools relate to creating a sense of community?
  48. sense of community 1. Feelings of membership 2. Feelings of influence 3. Integration and fulfillment of needs 4. Shared emotional connection (McMillan and Chavis, 1986)
  49. feelings of membership • includes: personal profile pages, 'friending', defining groups within the larger group (groups), invitations to groups • allow for lots of personal & group expression (personalization) • greet new members and introduce them to others with similar interests
  50. feelings of influence • includes: forums, chat, comments, blogging, personalized mail • create many ways in which members can connect and platforms for expression • respond to all feedback, good or bad
  51. integration and fulfillment of needs • includes: status rewards, featuring members, vips, karma points, etc. • 'in crowd' knowledge - acorns, tricks, traditions & rituals
  52. shared emotional connection • can't be created, but shared experiences with members can help (continual, deep interaction with community) • meetups, barcamps, coworking, celebrations and developer days help
