Grow a community for your business

I help passionate solopreneurs build communities for their businesses

 

I believe the gift of belonging is one of the best gifts you can give. Building a community for your business is both good for people and great for business.

Connected with a purpose

A community is more than just having "followers". It's a connected tribe of people who engage with you and each other.

Good for people. Great for business.

Brand Loyalty ❤️

Build a brand worth talking about. Creating a community is a way to find and grow ambassadors of your brand who don't just talk about your business - they shout about it. 

Never have a failed product launch again. Don't guess what your customers want, speak to them directly and learn exactly what they need! 

Customers don't just buy products and services anymore, they buy experiences. Your community gives them a chance to connect with you and each other and enhances the experience with your brand. 

The "build it and they will come" myth

Build it and they may come... if you're lucky. To create an engaged community where people truly connect requires a strategy. To ensure its success, your community should be clearly tied to your business goals so it's win-win for both you and your members.

Let me be your guide

In 2016, I founded the How To Be Human project, and built a community and online "safe space" from scratch. Since then, I've also worked with start-ups, NGOs, cafes and musicians to take communities from zero to 1000s of active members! I'm a Facebook certified community manager. 

I can help you to:

  • Build an engaged community

  • Increase customer retention

  • Monetise your community

  • Reduce customer acquisition costs

  • Launch a beta testing group

  • Gather invaluable insights from a feedback group
