Community Times: Grow your Web3 and NFT community
Hello there, Community Rockstar 👋
I can’t believe it’s been a month since we talked. I hope you had a productive month and are staying healthy both physically and mentally. It’s important to take short breaks, give yourself some time, and burnouts are real.
In the community news, we hosted our favorite monthly member catch-up or as we like to call it “When RETRO Meets METRO”.
This is just the beginning of what’s more to come.
On the other hand, a lot more new community builders have joined our community. Join us at Community Folks to get to know them and listen to their experiences.
We are here to keep you updated on all things community, the events that are being hosted, and the jobs that are open.
So, scroll down to see the complete picture.
Web 3 and NFT Community: Growth strategies
It has become a trend to start a community in the Web3 ecosystem because everyone else is doing it.
Everyone, however, seems to be forgetting that in a community, meaningful ties must be made with and among members.
People quickly sign up for Web3 communities because they perceive short-term benefits there. What they don’t see is a reason to stay, a reason to connect with others.
Community is a powerful tool, if done right, it can do wonders for you. If done wrong, it can do you more harm than good.
Let me help you with some strategies that help you build better communities
Growth strategies for companies and communities in Web3 -
Direct emails are the best way to communicate with the audience, to get them into the community.
Airdrops - Airdrops are giveaways you distribute to those who register for your crypto program and sometimes users are required to complete simple promotional activities before they can claim.
NFT community Engagement Ideas -
Customized emojis for the server - you can also give personalized emojis to super users
Create mystery around your NFTs so the members are more engaged in discussing and trying to figure out the mysteries
Let members create smaller groups to connect with their peers.
Memes - Feel the emotion and conversation going on in the community and use memes according to that.
Get the members involved with the creation of the product
Feel free to connect with me if you want to discuss more on this.
