With the saturation of traditional marketing channels, it's becoming crucial that founders build communities around them. Where do you start?


Perhaps an unpopular opinion, but I'd start with a solution you have complete control over e.g. xenforo, vbulletin. It will take off slower, but once it gains traction it will run itself.

@1988seb I completely agree. It’s important to own your audience and have direct access as opposed to relying on an algo to show them your content.

One of the best ways for founders to build a community is through social media platforms or by starting an online forum or blog. It's a great way to interact with potential customers directly and update them on the latest developments.

Social media. I use Discord, have had great success. But after the time and effort it took to built the community, I wouldn't do it again.

Take the Minimum Viable Community approach and understand that community starts with conversations. https://rosie.land/posts/a-guide...
