love this post!
Not only have I come back, I have returned with a vengeance and set up my own Hive project @hivepeople..... In a nutshell, my project aims to solve two problems:
Do communication and marketing about Hive onboarding by @roomservice @hiveonboard (once the hiveonboarding.com site is fully complete...it works now to create free Hive accounts, but the Learn section is empty...so I wrote that today) and Hive marketing....
I also created the Hive Marketing group, so that we can all work together to create social media campaigns.
Also as far as onboarding, I am running the @hivepeople twitter account, so Hive noobs can reach out and get help when they are having tech issues. I tell people to tag @hivepeople on twitter and on hive if they need assistance. Together with @hivetrending, we are making some serious progress....
And my HIVENOOBS series of tutorials aims to cover every topic imaginable that people need....now I just need someone to build a website for all this....lol
Thanks for the mention...yeah, we need to all invite people back, plus we need to really focus on user retention. Once the hiveonboarding.com site is 100% complete, and we have referral links (they're working on this right now), I"m going to do a social media campaign. We have to strategize how to engage users right away, and i think we need an army scouring the introduceyourself pages.....if the campaign is successful, more people will join, so we gotta be smarter this time around.
