What is your goal?


Recommended Posts

In my opinion, the primary aim of a community is to provide a space for meaningful discussion. Communities are also the platform to ask questions and answer questions. Community's goal is the foster communication.  If you lose this motto and focus only on traffic, users and activities, you are are not in the right track. When you started your community, what was your primary goal? Have you been able to get there?

My goal is to create an audience. If I have audience, promoting and selling becomes easy. By running a community, I hope to build audience. I hope to provide a platform where people will learn and share.

Forums that only focus on conversation won't survive.  Forums that focus on meaningful conversation can survive. 

I'm more convinced than ever that forums as a social tool are gone, and that you need to provide success - answering questions, providing solutions, providing resources

If communities try to work in the way Reddit or Quora are working, I believe community can survive. Communities should offer a platform where people come to get help or provide help voluntarily. This helping people should be the primary goal of community.

I will be frank, when I started my first community, I only cared about making money. I spent some money to hire paid posters for regular activities. I hired writers for SEO articles. I monetized my site with Adsense. Then I sold the site. I then created second site for the same purpose but I could not sell it. I am now trying to build my communities as a resource sute for finding information.

When I create a community, I always aim to create a place where people can feel comfortable discussing and sharing opinions and information without issue or feeling out of place. 

I feel if you have an interest in something you should be able to share your interests and help others too if you wish to without feeling like you do not belong. My aim when I build a community is to build an atmosphere that is friendly and helps everyone feel like they are included.

You cannot have "everyone" on your community, right? I mean you can only have those who are interested in your niche. If your community is niche focused, it will be someone easier to bring like minded people and have a healthy discussion. Community can also build serious discussions if you have genuine users.
