Online Community Lifecycle in a Nutshell [infographic]
Richard Millington, Founder of FeverBee Limited, just published this online community lifecycle infographic. He writes:
The lifecycle is your strategy for developing the community. It tells you what to do and when to do it. It’s backed by academic research, it’s proven to work, and ensures that the community manager understands what to work on next, as opposed to working in the dark. … [Until now] it’s always been visually unimpressive. There was never a single diagram that placed the stages, with the metrics, and the actions all in one place.
The FeverBee community lifecycle poster is a great cheatsheet or quick reference guide.
