How to measure your community's growth

There are no hard and fast rules dictating how your community should grow. Each community is unique and has its own setup resulting in a spectrum of ‘growth’.

We’ve identified 5 key stages most communities go through in roughly their first 24 months. These are: 

  1. Inception

  2. Establishment

  3. Maturity

  4. Saturation
