As a webmaster, what are your modes of communication with your visitors and members ? Do you drive them towards your social media page where no one will call you spammy or traditional newsletters that will never reach them ?
Comments in my Blog other than that i don't have any mode of communication. Like to be one sided mostly.
Jason Like to be one sided mostly.
Why so ? Any particular reason ?
Abhi No particular reason, my mindset is let them come, read and go why communicate with them or they with me.
That is an interesting viewpoint. If you can do well in organic traffic, such posture is very productive.
Do you have an easy to remember domain name ? In case the user wants to come back and check.
Abhi I have easy domain name to remember and my blog is new.
You are doing bold things. Nice to see that kind of webmaster-ship. I think you have email subscription setup anyway. A lot of people look for it in a blog.
Some sort of address book is nice in my opinion. Whether you use it or not. It might come handy at some point.
Don't sell them. That is not a good thing to do. If you are going to hand over a project, make sure that personal details are erased. There are people who buy web projects only for the purpose to gain access to back-end data.
I try to engage them via the posts on my forum. I tag members specifically if I think they may like a certain topic. I don't use social media other than Mewe. I have also mass emailed members a couple of times at certain milestones i.e. the 6 month & 9 month mark. If my forum got bigger, I may enlist a newsletter to send out.

Wow! Your forum is not new then. Brilliant.
Well, it's still new lol Just hit the 1 year mark April 21 🙂
I like to try and target various methods of engagement:
I think a healthy balance of engagement across all can help build a good user-base
ZandraJoi Just hit the 1 year mark April 21
That is worth celebrating. 👑
Thank you both 🙂
How were the celebrations ZandraJoi ? Hope everyone had a lot of fun. 🏄
Well I don't have many members so I HOPE they enjoyed the acknowledgement. I don't know enough of how to do prizes or the like so it was just a day like any other LOL
ZandraJoi . I don't know enough of how to do prizes
if there is anything we can do, feel free to ask.
admin That is so kind of you to say! Thank you! I was waiting until I got a bit bigger with more active members to implement ideas. Since I am one who likes being prepared, I have ideas listed for when the time comes.
