Enhance Your Online Research Community

Four Best Practices to Enhance Your Online CommunityWhether you’re thinking about starting a community, have just started one, or have a seasoned online community, it’s essential to always enhance your online research community and keep in mind the best practices of online community management. This helps with and is centered around having an active and thriving community.

An active and engaged community will help you get your research done quicker, will save you money/budget and will give you more confidence in knowing you’re conducting research with the right audience. I’ve often heard from clients that with a healthy and engaged community they are able to get their research done 3 times cheaper and 10 times quicker than using other traditional methods.

When managing your community, you have more end to end control over not only your members and sample but over the tools that are available to you and your entire business. The reliability and validity of your data will increase due to the control that you have over your group of members.

When talking about community best practices we need to dive into four main areas – Recruitment, Engagement, Data Collection, and Rewards.

Recruitment – Getting the best members into your community to match your research goals.

Engagement – Keeping your community engaged best way to make sure you have an active community.

Data Collection – Collecting data from your community – surveys, polls, ideation, etc.

Rewards – Incentivizing members including a good points system to use.

Putting the best practices around each of these four main areas to use will ensure that you have an active and thriving community.
