Engage and Empower Users: Community Management Course
“The class will cover the basics of building a kick-ass community that’s even more supportive than your parents.
Whether you’re the owner of a small business, the facilitator of an online forum, a member of a book club, or an activist, the people who believe in & join your efforts are your most valuable asset! Once you’ve got a meaningful product or mission, you can build a community of active & evangelizing participants. A thriving community will help you to get the word out about what you’re doing and to develop your efforts around the needs of the people you’re serving. Ultimately, your community will take on a life of its own and ensure the sustainability of your product or mission.
This 4-class course will cover the basic principles of community building in any context, and you’ll walk away with the tools you need to identify your community, make it meaningful, engage others in your community, and maintain a growing group of active members.”
