We can build your online community
Nearly everyone can benefit from building a community for their business or organisation, whether that be for your clients, supporters, or customers. A community-driven approach multiplies the value of what you offer as others get involved. If you’re passionate about what you do, there’s a good chance others will be too. You’re helping them already. Why not let them help you?

Website forum or Facebook Group?
Online communities come in all shapes and sizes, so we’ve given an idea of costs above for two different approaches. Now, keeping in mind we can help you build a community through any social media platform (looking at you Instagram! 🥰), when you want a more formal or protected space for people to connect we’ve had the greatest success with both traditional forums built into websites, and with Facebook Groups. We’d like to share some of our experiences here to help you with your own plans.
Website forums or discussion boards
* It’s worth noting that we as a company have mixed feelings about Facebook (and social media in general, if we’re honest). We love the potential for community in Facebook, and have built successful spaces there. But we’re also concerned about the way Facebook’s policies have disrupted democracy around the world, and the way social media in general monetises human attention with little regard for our wellbeing.
The balance we strike is that by remaining involved we get a say. So we support anyone who has decided to avoid social media for their wellness, and we can certainly find alternative networking and marketing strategies. For ourselves, as a digital company, we want to stay connected with social media communities where we feel we have a responsibility to look out for the wellbeing of others and try to hold the network architects as accountable as we can.
