I’ve been a part of dozens of online communities: content marketers, growth marketers, language learners, Notioners, career-crashers, startup founders, online geniuses, remote workers, freelancers…
Very few provide me real value in the form of human connections, expanding my network.
And, recently, Mat & I decided to officially shut down
Through those conversations, we determined that we want to feel part of something tight-knit that grows slowly and intentionally. This will be more valuable to all members over time.
As opposed to launching another community for “CONTENT MARKETERS” or “NO-CODERS” and then trying to invite everyone who wants to join, we can instead build a community of high-quality people one member at a time.
One member at a time.
Personal introductions to at least 2 new people.
Each person invites someone that just “fits.” Not for the same reason others are invited, but for a specific reason.
