You Gotta Feed The Dog: “Lately, I’ve been talking a lot about feeding the dog. The dog being your social media presence. Every online community (Twitter, video, blogging, Facebook, private online community, etc.) demands all of these at all stages of its life. If you don’t maintain a space actively, your followers become uninterested, and your social community will wither and die. If you don’t feed the dog as much as it needs, it will die. You gotta feed the dog if you’re doing your job.”

How To Get Influential People Participating In Your Community: “Most communities don’t try to be great. There is a way to tackle this, aim for big wins. One of biggest wins is to have influential people participating in your community.”

Community Easter Egg Hunt: “People often to stick to areas of a community they are familar with. In some cases I’ve seen people who won’t even venture out of a thread/topic let along interact within another section of the site, so I love this because it’s simple, creative and encourages members to explore areas of the community that they might not otherwise have ventured into.”

Gaming for Charity and How to Grow an Audience: “An annual event going back to 2008, the Mario Marathon is an amazing example of building a community through word of mouth, relentless promotion and clever interactions with fans. It’s one of the earliest examples of a gaming marathon benefitting charity, which involves streaming gamers playing the games to a live audience over the course of several days.”
