Identify notable members to welcome to your community
In some cases, you may want to send personalized, warm welcomes to new members of your community - especially if they seem like a great community fit. But how do you determine who is a notable new member?
Here are some ideas to get you thinking.
Analyze characteristics among your current top community members
- What traits do my current top community members or customers have in common?
- What was their first activity that signified to me that they wanted to get more involved?
These questions can help you discover characteristics that you’d like to filter for when looking for notable new members.
Choose filters that will help you find members that fit your community goal
Take a second to reflect on your community goal. Depending on your goal, you might already know what member characteristics you’re looking for.
- If you are a new dev community and want to grow awareness, you might welcome to folks whose job titles include the words like Founder, CTO, developer, or people with a large Twitter following
- If you want to build a stronger meetup culture, you might reach out to folks only after they have signed up for at least 2 events for the first time.
Here are some other examples of notable new members that other Orbit users have used in the past:
- Members that are founders and were active for the first time in the last week
- Members that registered for an event for the first time in the last week
- Members who are part of a key company that joined for the first time in the last week
