Starting a community

🏁 Starting a community

A community is a great space for discussion, collaboration, and sharing investment proposals.
Communities can be created by anyone for members with similar backgrounds, experiences, interests, and goals.
  1. Provide community description: let others know what your community is for. The more information you can provide, the more you can help align community members. Example descriptions below:
    1. Houston, TX — Single-family, Short-term Rental Community:
      This community is focused on buying short-term rentals (Airbnb, VRBO, etc.) in Houston, TX. Given that Houston doesn't have a short-term rental (STR) ordinance in effect yet, we are aiming for greater cash flow through the STR strategy, while also capitalizing on the ability of Houston properties to appreciate and create long-term wealth.
      Subtle Asian Real Estate:
      Subtle Asian Real Estate is a community that was created by Asian millennials who are passionate about real estate and education. Our mission is to create an educational platform to educate, inspire, motivate, and empower immigrant communities around the world to pursue investments or careers in real estate. Through our community, we want to connect our members with well-established experts and professionals who understand our unique cultures and values to help build our legacies and wealth.

Please note that even if your community is discoverable, members can only join a community if they are connected to a community member.
2a. Add community badges: add badges to your community to help people easily discover and find it. Badges are also a great way to give people a high-level overview about your community.
  1. Invite members: you can add members via their username or email. Members are required to make a Fractional account and complete a basic profile before they can join and engage in communities.
  1. Create channels: a default #general channel will be created for the community. You can easily add additional channels to help organize discussions.
  1. Manage community roles: as the community creator, you are the default admin with full control of all functionalities. You can create new roles for the community with unique privileges such as adding and removing members or ability to manage community proposals. You can also add as many admin with full-privileges as you’d like.
