Rosieland Roundup 144 β€” Give the gift of the homepage

🎟 I'm speaking at Swarm Conf next week, join me!

The real community value is through giving on the homepage

How would you feel if you got a spot on a really high traffic website? I would like to think it would make your day, week, month or year!

Highlighting members is a much underrated 'tactic' in community building and I think we don't take it nearly far enough. It's not just about talking about people, it's about doing it in a really impactful way.

Smashing Magazine invests in the ecosystem and do it well in a community section on their home page:

  • they highlight members
  • they curate their content
  • they link directly to the source rather than try to keep them always on their website
  • people get mentioned in their Tweets to almost 1 million followers

This is the stuff that keeps members coming back, supporting and focusing on creating real value back to the community and the ecosystem.
