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

  5. Stability

Once you break your community’s progress down into these stages it’s easier to assess how it’s growing. Then you can take a more pragmatic and data-driven approach to influencing your community’s future growth.

 

Here’s some guidance on what to look out for when you’re assessing your community’s growth:
