One Thing to Realize About Online Communities

A tool doesn’t have to be perfect. It just has to work for you.

Sure, there are annoyances, oversights, nice-to-haves, and need-to-haves in any tool, anywhere.

Things that make you rant to trusted colleagues and start looking at your budget to see what you can pull from where to invest in something new.

But if, for the most part, you’ve got a system that’s serving the needs of your audience, that’s great!

This means that the majority of the time, you’re working with something that does what you need it to do so you can focus on what’s really important: The people in your community.

And if your people don’t notice what the community isn’t doing, that gives you time to figure it out behind the scenes. 🙂
