Give your community a place to engage directly with one another around the topics they’re most passionate about.
Realtime chat creates a sense of “aliveness” for your community that no other tool can provide.
Allow your community to find like-minded people who share their passions and interests more easily than any other portal.
These people take ownership of Channels centered around a particular topic (science, cooking, etc.) and help make them engaging and also moderate content posted. Your community’s leaders can be a good fit, or hire a Squadmate to help guide you.
It’s important to have someone responsible for generating new Channels as the community’s interests expand, or hire a Squadmate to help make killer looking bounties for you.
