Managing a Google+ Community

Tips for a successful community

Do:

  1. Promote your community as a place where people can have conversations and share ideas
  2. Participate in conversations by posting, leaving comments and +1’ing posts
  3. Celebrate and engage with your members
  4. Add moderators and invite them to manage content and share regularly
  5. Add categories to help guide discussions
  6. Listen to and learn from your community’s members

Don’t:

  1. Just broadcast information
  2. Only pose broad questions in the hopes of discussion and engagement
  3. Invite people to join an empty community — write an initial post to set expectations and welcome new members
  4. Leave your community unmoderated — check in on your community daily to make sure that the right kinds of conversations are happening.
