There are many methods that can be used to manage an online community effectively and appropriately. But how do you make your community genuinely thrive? What is the best way to achieve this?
One man that knows just how better than almost anyone. Step forward Richard Millington, founder of Feverbee Limited
Feverbee is an online community consultancy dedicated to helping you manage your online community to the best of your ability.
Set up nine years ago by Millington, he is ranked in the top ten of UK marketing blogs and is widely recognised for his work on ten successful online communities and his contribution to the success of dozens more.
His clients have included the United Nations, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Marlaria, BAE Systems, Novartis and AMD, as well as many youth entertainment brands, digital marketing agencies and non-profit organizations.
In an interview with communitymanagers.nl Millington admits that “when marketers get involved they aim for big scale, fancy websites and do just about everything wrong.” He understand that when it comes to the crux, it is still always all about people. “All the technology in the world doesn’t change the fact that people are still responding to the same things in very similar ways.”
This understanding has lead to Millington’s success and the popularity of Feverbee’s Pillar Summit.
The Pillar Summit is the world’s first course in professional online community management.
It is a master class for community managers who want to make the most out of their community and aid its growth by engaging and managing their potentially thriving community.
The Pillar Summit will launch a master class series for professional online community managers on April 18.
The course is broken down into 12 distinct weeks each covering a specific topic. There will be 3 lessons each week which will be sent by e-mail and are also available to download from the course website.
The course is approximately £2,000 but there is a group rate available for organisations who wish to enrol more than one person.
Designed and taught by Millington, this course highlights the best ways to manage an organisation’s online community. The first of its kind, this course demonstrates the levels on initiative and expertise that Millington has to offer and shows just why Feverbee’s consulting skills are so highly regarded.
