Can Your Business & Your Community Get Along?

Growing Business + Community

The pressures of business are making it hard to
lead and grow your community.

Decisions feel complicated, & the two are painfully intertwined.

You find yourself anxious and cautious around community members, knowing that one wrong move could lead to mass exodus...or worse, nobody shows up in the first place.

You know that your business only exists as long as the customers do.

"What can I do to make sure that members stick around and participate?" Worry lingers. "If anybody does leave...will I be able to attract new members fast enough?"

What if your business + your community were complementary?

What if they were greater than the sum of their parts? You could:

  • Attract and retain better customers & community members.
  • Make more money to invest in growth.
  • Build a business & community that last a long time.
  • Enjoy your work more - and isn't that reason to be in a community in the first place?

This eBook is full of practical and actionable business lessons specifically for blending your business with your community.

It's helpful for offline and online communities:
meetup groups, startups, coworking/shared workspaces, forums, discussion lists & more.

Choosing Your Perfect Business Model

There are countless variations, but they all stem from a handful of simple, proven revenue-generating models for communities.

You'll learn which...

  • ...are the best models for your community that's young and growing

You'll learn each model's strengths & weaknesses so you can mix and match to optimize

Setting Your Prices for Community & Business Success

You'll learn how you can...

  • ...make more money than you thought possible by understanding the value of community to your members

You'll be prepared to:

  • ...keep members close knit-and trusting as your member roster expands quickly
  • ...budget and plan for the changing financial needs of a growing business and community
