I have a paid membership site and we use a FB group for the community aspect but none of us really like Facebook. I need a good alternative. We've considered slack quite a bit but it's a bit of a learning curve for some of our members. I'd love some suggestions!!
- There are a few video games I like whose developers have a sub-reddit as their main community hub to interact with fans, and I'm sure there are other non-gaming communities that are centered around the same idea. It's free and there are literally millions of people who use Reddit every day, so it could be worth checking out. Creating a sub-reddit is can be done within a minute or two. You have mod tools and page customization tools at your disposal, and you can even set the page to private if you wanted to.
