Community building in the digital space is changing the way we do business and create impact. Beyond content, there is a need to deepen relationships by creating conversations, building community and collectively supporting individual perspectives, while helping each other to thrive.
Digital influence built on community and impact, has proven to birth forth stronger success. In addition, brands who work with digital influencers are more convinced through engagement and the impact (conversions) that such partnerships create. They see more ROI when a trusted tribe has been built by the influencers they work with. It’s no wonder, Mark Zuckerberg updated the mission of Facebook to focus on building communities when he said– “Give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.”
Social media has given creatives, leaders and gamechangers the opportunity to express themselves, build a following, and also earn through their passions. This has aided more people to leverage on the power of the online space.
However, there is a huge gap amongst entrepreneurs and professionals in the creative and online space as regards building real impact, transforming lives, creating stronger communities and thriving in the process. How can we use social media to educate other aspiring leaders, creatives and entrepreneurs using community learning, which helps us build better networks and partnerships? How can technology aid a young fashion creative to connect and promote local manufacturing in the Nigeria fashion industry? How can we use technology to build communities we can trust through real time conversations?
The rise of creatives, online entrepreneurs and other professionals in this digital age, is truly a blessing. However, we can create greater impact that benefits the influencers, brands and the communities they serve.
This Meetup will create more awareness and possibilities available through community building, and enlighten attendees on the various opportunities available to build products and services that will add more value to their communities. Furthermore, attendees will network with like minds, learn from experts, and leave with ideas to help them thrive better in their businesses.
