I have identified one if not the BIGGEST problem currently on Hive:
- Most social media users are on mobile.(something like 80%)
- The Hive Communities feature is one of the best aspects of Hive, and solves a lot of retention issues.
- The only mobile app on Hive, Esteem, has no functionality for users to join Communities.....LOL. I have been testing this all out, and realized if i'm using Esteem app, I CANNOT JOIN COMMUNITIES! The lead dev replied that they are working on this, but i think user onboarding is a bit pointless until this happens.
We can't spend a gazillion dollars on advertising, and getting new users, if most are on mobile and they cannot join communities. It would be a total waste of funds. Until this gets resolved, we can work on other things....and @roomservice is getting a referral system in place as well.
The main thing we can do right now:
Identify which friends are writers/content creators, and get them to join communities. send them to hiveonboard.com, and once the Esteem app has the communities feature working, then we can go nuts!
