Tips on getting the most from our community:
Take part in debates not connected to your products/services. This is easy, safe, territory and establishes your credibility as a serious participant in the community.
Br friendly. Be genuine members of the community. Make friends with others. Engage in the off-topic areas of the community. Congratulate people on their achievements. Suggest things in the community. Be a person first, a company representative second.
Ask for opinions on products/services. Occasionally, ask people for their opinions on a specific aspect of a product or a service. Giving members options or choices works better than generic What do you think of our new......
Ask for help. If you need people to help your company with something, ask for help.
Give exclusive information. Give members of a community some exclusive information about your brand or product. This doesn’t have to be big, but just things that will solicit interest and start some rumors about your work.
Contact the community owner/admin. When possible, contact the owner/admin of the community. Ask if you can do anything to help or if there are any special brand guidelines to be aware of.
