Gratitude is an essential part of building community. One of the most powerful emotions is gratitude. It helps foster meaningful connections, expands awareness and, well, it just feels good! Invision Community features powerful tools to help you maintain relationships with your clients, customers or members. Approaching them with gratitude in mind will inspire your community to blossom into something even greater. Here are five ways to show your community members you are thankful for them: 1) Achievements Our robust Achievements system is the most obvious method to tap into gratitude. As a community leader or moderator, you can literally show thanks by rewarding your members. Manually award members a Badge and Points for exemplifying leadership, posting special content or for their positive contributions. Move members into an exclusive Rank for consistently being a positive force in the community. Display a block of Badges on the community homepage to make members’ accomplishments visible. 2) Newsletter Send a bulk email from the platform directly into your members’ inbox. A newsletter is a wonderful way to intimately communicate with your die-hards. Blast the email to your entire community, or choose specific user groups. For example, relay this special gratitude email to members who’ve posted 100 times or more. 3) Curate content Highlight your members’ topics or blog posts by curating them for more to see. This not only thanks your community for positively contributing, but also encourages others to follow suit. Use the Our Picks widget or the Feature moderation action to prominently display content items. Though different tactics, both showcase what your members are posting. 4) Reputation Our Reputation system is one of the most efficient and effective ways to show gratitude in an instant. “Reacting” to members’ posts visibly shows thanks and communicates to others that the post is worth stopping and reading. Reacting also increases a member’s perceived value in the community. The higher a member’s Reputation score is, the more they are trusted by others. 5) Topics This might be the most powerful but challenging tip of all: create a topic in the Forums and tell your community you’re grateful for them. It’s one thing to award badges and points, curate content and send a newsletter, but it’s another for you, the community leader, to spend a moment and personally thank your members for supporting you. They are spending their time, one of the most valuable assets, with you. That’s worth celebrating! Speaking of… Invision Community would like to take this moment to thank you. Whether you are a serious hobbyist, a medium-sized company or an enterprise industry giant, we want to thank you for believing in us and using our platform to better your business. If you’re someone who’s interested in joining, we’d love to hear from you! 🙏 Get in touch with us! 🙏
