In this podcast, Katie defines the difference between an email list, your following, and your community. This is a crucial step you must have clarity around in order to be an effective community leader. As Katie explains, your email list is just a step in the process to building a community – it’s a two-dimensional relationship. A community, however, involves building a multidimensional relationship that you can access and engage with by giving value.
Once you understand what a community needs to be, you then need to know what steps need to be taken to build your communities. Katie shares:
- How to find members for your community
- How to effectively engage with your community
- What platforms are available and effective for building your community
- What types of products you can offer to the community to generate more revenue in your business
Building a community that will allow you to increase revenue in your business does require you to ‘show up’ and engage with the people who are raising their hand to be a part of your world. As Katie explains, if you take the right steps and spend your time effectively with your community, the payoff can be huge.
