Remember the mission statement you wrote? Try sharing it as a post, and invite your members to share their personal stake in the success of the group and hear others’ as well.
Consider hosting an onboarding webinar to Hylo, or making a simple video about why you want people to engage, reviewing some of the features of Hylo. We really like Crowdcast.io
One simple thing that can help engage people into conversations is to ask people to help you build lists of things, e.g.: "What are some of your favorite podcasts?" or "What articles should we share with new members?"
Ask questions! If you ask questions, it can give members an opportunity to share their knowledge and contribute.
Try introducing people to one another by @-tagging their names another on posts to encourage conversations and collaboration.
Have moderators, champions, and community leaders commit to a posting schedule, ensure they have the mobile app installed, make sure they fill out their profiles.
