How can I find an active Community to join?
Tailwind Communities is a vibrant ecosystem with thousands of Communities to join. No matter what kind of content your niche is in you’ll almost certainly be able to find a Community for it.
We’ve made finding new Communities to join simple with Find a Community. Here's how to get started discovering great Community in your niche:
- Go to the Communities page (located in the pop-out menu in the left hand navigation).
2. At the top left, click on " Find a Community." This is how you can utilize a search function to look for Communities that fit you and the type of content you like to Pin.
3. Once you’re in Find a Community you can search for Communities to join by keyword or category, or you can click on the grey tags to find Communities related to those topics.
You can quickly see each Community's name and category and learn about the Community and its rules.
It’s important that you join Communities where your content will fit in. If you find the right Community for the kind of content you create you’ll get more re-shares from your Community members, and find more content you want to re-share!
Find a Community also shows useful metrics that will help you evaluate how many members a Community has and how active its members are. When searching for Communities to join we show a 'Share Score' for each which is a quick indication of how active members of the Community are in terms of submitting and sharing each others content. See below:
Some Communities are private and require you to request to join them, while others are public and anyone can join immediately with one click.
If you want to get a closer look at a Community, you can preview it by clicking the Preview Community button.
Learn more about previewing Communities in our Knowledge Base article: Can I preview a Community before I join it?
Large Communities are not always better than smaller Communities. There are many smaller Communities that have high standards of content and a close group of dedicated members.
Similarly, don't stop at joining public Communities just because it's easier. There are private (request to join), and even secret Communities (you'll have to ask around in your niche). Influential members, niche-focus, and a commitment to pooling audiences can more than compensate for a low member count.
Try all sorts of Communities, and find which ones work best for you!
