1/ Part 1. Finding your community mission - simple guide on how to define the mission of your community.

2/ Part 2. Select your community stack - 7 quick recipes of community stacks to choose from.

In what stage are you in the community building process?


Special announcement 🎇

Today I'm announcing Community Weekly Pro.

While consulting and some occasional sales from digital downloads are making things work, I want to spend more time on writing. Talk not only about communities but also the creator economy and it's technological landscape. With your support, I can spend less time doing the consulting and more here, building an educational platform for online creators of all kinds.

I'm taking things slow, and current pricing is $9/month and $90/yearly.

With the monthly option you’ll get:

  • Bite-sized audio versions of the articles to listen to in your favorite podcasting app.
  • Vetted collection of resources - it's a Notion dashboard with ideas for communities, tools for builders, short intros on how to use them.

Bonus if you’re choosing the annual subscription:

  • Member-only episodes of the private podcast,
  • Access to existing digital downloads and ebooks.

Free version:

  • things will remain unchanged you will still get 1 email a week with community roundups.

Tools for builders ⚒️

1/ Pallet

I think if there's a place where communities can make a huge impact it's hiring. Pallet is a no-code platform for community builders, who want to add job boards to the community. The job board is a great additional revenue source for the community. They are still in the beta testing stage but I highly recommend checking it out.

2/ Community VC job board

This point is connected to the previous one. CommunityVC launched a job board for community-led companies. First, it's a great inspiration if you want to start a job board using Pallet. Second, if you're looking for work in the community. Now they have 144 roles posted. Shoot your shot!

3/ Survey: Linkedin resume builder

A friend of mine is trying to validate her business idea. She is creating an AI-based personalized LinkedIn profile generator that could create professional text with minimal input from the user. But she still has a lot of doubts. Thus, if you can dedicate 2 min to answer her survey, we would be very thankful.

4/ Farnam street

Seems like I'm the last person who discovered Fanarm Street. As creators and founders, we often don't think about ourselves as knowledge workers. It's what we do: write, research, validate hypothesis and it's not an easy-flowing task. The newsletter and especially the podcast of the FS gave me a lot of insights not only into decision-making processes but also helps me figure out myself as a creator.

That's it for today.

With 💛 from Armenia.
