Community and culture design in Discord

Lera and I will help to transform followers from your business channels into a lovely community that aligns to your business goals and promotes your company culture.

The Community Design Program is a set of on-demand personal workshops that we tailor to your business on the go:

  • You dedicate a person from your company to lead each Stage - can be a junior employee without a tech background but with a strong will to learn new things.

  • We help your business setup goals, KPIs and stages and put it to a timeline.

  • We help you execute and report on the results.

Lera and I will help you start a community initiative, align it to your business, your company culture and train your employees.

Here’s an article or a 17 min video on why your business may need a community in 2021.

Stage 0 - What can you want from a community?

Outcome: You can take a decision - commit to Stage 1 or postpone your community initiative.

  • We see if we can align your business goals to your community ambitions

  • We set up expectations with timeframes and possible KPIs to get the budgets approved

  • We help you understand the requirements and do the planning

Stage 1 - Assemble a Minimum Viable Community

Outcome: A Discord server that you are comfortable inviting your colleagues, business partners and your trusted users to.

  • We guide you through starting a Discord server in a proper scalable way

  • We help you prioritize and focus on your MVC, so you see progress and have new functionality after each workshop

  • We explain and help you to design the community core loop and the foundation to integrate it into your company ecosystem

Stage 2 - Iterate on culture and strategy

Outcome: A core community that is founded on the relationships, values and culture of your brand.

  • Your key stakeholders should feel comfortable in and with your community

  • We design and help you set the community culture, make sure the first users do resonate with the culture and share the values

  • We help you set the engagement and content strategy

Stage 3 - Content and growth

Outcome: You can run online events, workshops and engage with your users, business partners and your team in a single space.

  • We make sure that the first hundred people who join your community understand what to do and why they’d want to return here

  • We watch and protect the community culture, build the community lore, set the community routines and teach you and your team to operate within the community-led business mindset

  • We help you iterate over content and engagements strategy, set up your tech and events stack, guide you through it all and help to run your first community events

Stage 4 - Community Operations

Outcome: Your business is community-led now, you have the community as a part of your product, your business strategy and are loudly proud of it.

  • Let’s make sure you don’t need us for your community to function, your team is happy and comfortable with how everything functions

  • Your team has to understand and feel the community, be role models and culture carriers - we make sure this happens and there’s a clear understanding and reporting

  • We help you pick the long-term strategy, plan and implement it, align to business goals and KPIs

Further stages:

Outcome: We help you execute on the community strategy, continue training the team or helping with community operations, everything tech, media and online community events until you don't need us.

  • Help to hire and coach a team of community managers

  • We design you a custom superuser, volunteer moderator, beta-testing and other loyalty programs

  • Support with online events, maintenance, conflict resolutions, moderation, and all kinds of tech and people issues

  • Help transform your Discord to a full-blown radio, podcasting, video production and/or a conference/workshops/co-working experience

  • Help set up metrics and reporting for your executive team and investors
