You shouldn't be guessing what is or isn't working in your community. You should be gathering and analyzing data about your community's health. Metrics can paint a vivid picture about whether your existing, active members are more or less engaged in the community, and they can highlight anything that might be a cause for concern.

If you want to answer questions about how healthy your community is, begin by gathering data. Join us October 1st at 11am Pacific time to find out how to capture and interpret the data that will tell you if you have a healthy community.

At the end of this webinar, you will be able to determine the difference between metrics for return on investment (ROI) and metrics for community health, identify key data points that you should collect to track community health, and turn this data into actionable insights about your community.
