  13. 13. Similarities between Startups & Communities 13 Product Market Fit Open source, open standards and other communities grow from a specific technical need, ability to access code and their vitality. Cross Promotion Foundations and communities are able to do natural cross promotions. Use of APIs also encourages synergies. No to Little Funding Startups face what Open Source projects have dealt with for years. Keep the budgets low while tweaking for success. Funnel Growth Hackers focus on Acquisition, Activation, Retention, & Revenue. Communities progress from Awareness, Consuming, Contributing and Mentoring Others. Retention Over Acquisition It is cheaper to keep a participant or customer then find a new one. It is also a lot more fun to keep a community member then lose one! @GinnyGhezzo #WITSNC #growthhacking

  27. 27. How Open Communities Do it Well 1. Be Useful - Stay simple “If advertisers spent the same amount of money on improving their products as they do on advertising then they wouldn't have to advertise them.” - Will Rogers (1879-1935) 2. Be Helpful - Get to the point, Be available “If you really care about starting a movement, have the courage to follow and show others how to follow.” - Derek Sivers 3. Be Nice - Beware of insider talk, foster new users “Do you know what people want more than anything? They want to be missed. They want to be missed the day they don't show up.” - Seth Godin 4. Be Flexible - Stay Relevant “There is no innovation and creativity without failure. Period.” - Dr Brene Brown 27@GinnyGhezzo #WITSNC #growthhacking
  28. 28. More free Advice 1. Community needs both value and direction. Corporations pay membership fees for value, developers contributing because they believe in the direction. 2. People participate because the love: the love the the code and the friendships being developed. 3. Leverage Analytics. 4. Quality of commits, quality of releases are the value. 5. For Open Source, the funnel moves people from consumers to contributors. 6. Make it easy for companies to vet both consumption of and participation in Open Source. 7. Having a code of conduct matters for inclusion and retention. 28@GinnyGhezzo #WITSNC #growthhacking
