Tips for Community Managers?

Hello!

I recently joined the coworking community a few months ago as a Community Manager for Pro Desk Space in Downtown Fullerton (CA).

Our location is fairly small compared to other communities, and has been operating for about 2 years now.

What are some tips for a new Community Manager to actively engage with the community and their members?

Hi!
I have run a smaller space for over 7 years. Here is my best recommendation on an event that has been very well-liked by the community. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3ePxJqyE2s

Before Indy Hall was big, we were small :wink: most importantly, the stuff we learned when we were small inform the things we focus on as we grow. Being small is awesome. I miss it some days :wink:

ANYWAY.

Angels suggestions are ace, obviously. Food events are easy wins. Pot lucks are even easier, and help give people a taste of contribution which is a big part of the equation.

Group projects are valuable too! Nothing brings people together like a common problem to solve (except food maybe).

The key to WHATEVER you choose is creating rhythm and ritual. Make it a regular thing. Make it something people can look forward to. Make it easy to repeat.

And don't feel bad if it's just a couple of people who participate. 1>0.

I've added more detail and examples here: https://dangerouslyawesome.com/2017/04/how-to-get-people-more-involved-in-your-community-without-forcing-it/
