⚡️A Community Doesn't Necessarily Make You Community-Led

By Mac Reddin

So many companies throw ‘Community-Led’ around just because they have a community. Their communities are often thriving, and lately, they’re receiving more and more resources to build with.

But then you talk to the Head of Sales, the Head of Marketing, or even the CEO, and ask them what impact community has on their job. Often, they have no clue. 

That’s the difference between just having a community and being a Community-Led company. 

You could have the best-resourced, best-managed, and most engaging community in the world, but without pervasive Community-Led thinking across your organization, community is just going to be another siloed pillar. And you’ll barely scratch the surface of the org-wide benefits of Community-Led Growth.
