That’s probably why niche online communities have been taking off so much recently. There’s a ton of value in putting a bunch of engaged, like-minded people in one place.

Example questions that are answered:

  • Why did you decide to start the Content Marketing Lounge?
  • Why do you think Facebook groups are taking off?
  • How have you built up the membership?
  • What are the biggest insights you’ve learned about keeping people engaged?
  • What’s the greatest value that these types of communities provide?
