How to build a community...
View this email in your browser

For most people, being asked to build a strong community is like a cooking noob like me being asked to whip up a gourmet meal…

...I'd have NO idea where to start

....I wouldn't even know what tools to use

.....I'd start making something, but how would I know if it was a success or not?

......And what the hell does puree even mean?

I know community is something EVERY successful startup has, but it can be really confusing:

  • Is community just a message board for users to chat with one another? 
  • How do I even create a community?
  • How do I grow it?
  • And does a strong community actually generate revenue?

These are just a few of the 100's of the unanswered questions I had.

But that all changed after listening to Jess Lee, the founder and CEO of Polyvore, during our pre-Hustle Con conversation.
