It has never been easier to start a digital community

Your audience is sitting at home longing for belonging.

You have never had more tools to connect them. That too, for free!

You can unlock a new source of leads, outsource value creation to your audience and build a self-sustaining engine to power your marketing efforts.

But building engagement is still hard

You can't just drop your audience in a Slack group and call it community.

You unlock the power of community only when members engage to create value for each other.

That's the challenge! How do you get your members to engage with each other?

You need someone to remove the guesswork out of your community building game.

I managed everything community - strategy, engagement and operations - for our online community of 30,000+ aspiring data professionals.

I was the first Community Consultant for YourStory, a growth-stage media startup.

Worked on migrating YourStory Club’s paid community of 300+ entrepreneurs from Mighty Networks to Slack.

I was the first Community Consultant for Growth Blazers, a seed-stage startup.

I created a Community Strategy to build engagement, onboard new users and onboard a full-time Community Manager for their paid community.

I believe I've been lucky to have been on the edge of the digital community building revolution. Now, I want to help you capitalise on this opportunity to create value by creating belonging!

Who is this for?

This is for builders who want to invest in building high-value digital communities. 


You've launched a successful business that generates revenue. Now, you want to invest in building community of your users to make it your competitive advantage.


You are a writer or a teacher with an audience. Now, you want to turn that audience into a community that can create value while you sleep.

Solo Community Managers

Ah, the fabulous solo-CM! You manage everything in your community - strategy, engagement, operations, everything! You could use a helping hand, right? 

Who is this not for?

If you already have an established community team that supports your community program, or if you are a veteran in the community industry, this may not be the right fit.

The market needs you and the tools are there, just waiting. All that’s missing is you, and your vision and your passion.

Take your first steps to turn your audience into an engaged community
