Community guidelines don't change the behavior of your members for one simple reason: your members don't read them. This presents a challenge. If you want to shape the behavior of members in the community, how do you do it? How do you influence members to do positive things in your community? How can you prevent them from doing bad things? Too often, we begin writing rules with a pre-determined idea of what the behavior in the community should be. Instead, we should look to see what behavior members want in a community and where that behavior is conducive to a successful community. Watch this webinar to learn how to steer your community to the behavior you want.
- Understand the various paths to community influence
- Determine how you will build influence in your community
- Identify, develop, and leverage an Insiders Group
- More ways to use creative and engaging solutions to shape behavior

A little over a year ago, FeverBee published a document that would change the way we approach online communities: The Online Community Lifecycle. Using the Lifecycle as a guide, you can identify exactly what phase your community is in now, anticipate how it will change over time, and effectively guide your community through its natural evolution.
Watch this webinar, and at the end of one hour you will be more informed about communities than most community professionals you meet.
- The four stages of the Online Community Lifecycle
- Identify milestones for each stage
- Lifecycle-based time management to help optimize growth, moderation, and relationships
- Tasks you can perform to take you from one stage to the next
- Evolve your role within your community as the community itself evolves

Communities are collections of people, with desires and egos. Instead of worrying about community in terms of the platform or UX Design, this webinar focuses on what makes people tick and want to participate in our online communities. Humans are at the forefront of this discussion.

You shouldn't be guessing what is or isn't working in your community. You should be gathering and analyzing data about your community's health. Metrics can paint a vivid picture about whether your existing, active members are more or less engaged in the community, and they can highlight anything that might be a cause for concern.
Watch this webinar to find out how to capture and interpret the data that will tell you if you have a healthy community.
At the end of this presentation, you will be able to determine the difference between metrics for return on investment (ROI) and metrics for community health, identify key data points that you should collect to track community health, and turn this data into actionable insights about your community.
