Reality Check

Myth: If you build it they will come.

Reality: A successful community doesn't run itself. It is crucial to have a Community Manager to offer guidance, encourage engagement, and maintain your content.

Hot Takes

CMAD (Community Manager Appreciation Day) is once a year, but recognizing your Community Manager shouldn't be. CMAD is an excellent reminder to recognize and celebrate the people who keep your communities running—but it shouldn't be the only time you do so. Community managers juggle an array of responsibilities and often have to work at all hours. Make sure they know you appreciate their hard work and dedication. After all, a successful community doesn't run itself!

The Community Manager Trap

Community managers wear multiple hats, taking on roles from writers and editors to graphic designers and project managers. However, the "community manager trap" emerges when the expectation to excel in all areas becomes unrealistic.

Their CMS makes it easy to ensure every piece of information lives in the right place, with the right people able to update and maintain.
