We just crossed over 2,000 members!
Happy Monday Ad Men,
We just crossed 2,000 members inside the community 馃帀馃嵕馃
Crazy to look back and realize we took this group public in January, and in just 6-months, have crossed over 2k members, wow!
Obviously couldn't have done this without each and every one of you here who've been active, and asking questions + offering support to the other members...
So thank YOU!
Over the weekend I was actually reading the book "Get Together: How to Build a Community With Your People", and it reminded me of some core key principles that are important for us to remember when it comes to our community...
(Feel write this down to remember for YOUR community as well)
  1. Building a community isn't about you and what you can do; rather, it's depending upon what you and your people can do.
  • Who do I care about?
  • Who do I share an interest, identity, or place with?
  • Who do I want to help?
Getting clear on your WHO + WHY is first and foremost...
Which is why for us, we've created this community specifically for Coaches, Course Creators, and Agency Owners who sell info-products & online education...
Why?
Because that's what WE do, and that's what WE love...
As we mention in the "START HERE" intro post we refer everyone to when they are accepted into this community, our mission is to educate the world through advertising...
And we created this community to bring together the next generation of 'Ad Men' so that we can all help each other make more income, and impact, with paid ads!
Which brings me to the 2nd takeaway of the book that I read this weekend...
2. In order to make sure your community's purpose is grounded in your people's needs, and that it expresses what you can accomplish together, consider:
  • What do my people need more of?
  • What's the change we desire?
  • What's the problem only we can solve together?
When you have a strong hunch about your WHO you want together, and WHY you are gathering, you're better equipped to decided WHAT to do next...
Anyways, as you can see, it's super important to make sure you get clear on these 2 core key principles first and we've done our best to do that here...
It's LESS about the # of people inside this community, and MORE about WHO is inside this community + WHAT we do together that makes it really tie together.
Which is something I want to explore more of over the next 6-months...
WHAT more we can do together here that can help us keep contributing to the growth of the online education industry as a whole...
To continue educating the world through advertising.
But for now, here's to you, to us, and to where we're going...
Cheers 馃
