Blogs are community essentials

Don’t let anyone tell you that blogs come second when it comes to community.

When you run a community site, you want your members to have their own spaces and their own identity. That’s where blogs come in.

Myspace, Facebook and WordPress.com are all built entirely on this principle – every user has their very own, customisable, powerful and independent area – and with an Incsub blog community you can provide exactly the same thing.

Only, we like to think, a bit better.

As a community site you can use blogs in a whole heap of ways:

  • Give users the ability to set up their own spaces by geographic area to talk about their own places – you can then automatically aggregate these into a global portal
  • Start a community publication – each blog is like a columnist and you can link to them from the front page (or sub pages for different topics)
  • Incorporate eCommerce functionality – if your community happens to be an artists’ one why not let them sell their work through it (you can even take a cut!)
  • Start no end of conversations -blogs promote and support conversations far better than forums (having said that, we’ll integrate forums for you too!) – once you start connecting different users up with our Friends features you’ll see some amazing results.
