Tom Ross has built a community of over 750,000 people. So he know’s a thing or two about community and communities – which is exactly why I wanted to interview Tom Ross.
It’s Ryan Carruthers here from The Membership Mastery, with another podcast episode for you today.
Tom Ross ‘The Community Guy’ & CEO of DesignCuts joins me today to talk about:
- 750,000 community members – so let’s start with that – remember how it felt when you started out before this huge number, what would be the one thing you would tell yourself?
- Whats the number one thing you think people misunderstand about building a community?
- You mentioned that people have an audience which is mainly content and then a community which is deeper level of connection. As the listeners are membership site owners many have an audience and then the membership community – one thing they struggle with is getting the Audience to know like and trust them to become members – what kind of things can we do too
- Grow the audience & make that audience more of a community?
- How do we identify our most engaged? How do we reach out to get them into the membership?
- I’ve heard you say that 200 is the critical mass and a good idea is a waiting list so that you can get there quickly, what do you do if you’ve already launched?
- How do we adopt a one member community mindset?
If you want to know what it takes to build a community and really serve your members you are going to get a lot of takeaways from this one.
