Rosie Sherry is a community-building expert, so I wanted to find out what it takes to build one from the ground up. It's certainly not easy, but if you're prepared to put in the work, get to know your people, and keep them actively interested, you'll do well.
In this episode we talked about:
- Rosie's background as an indie hacker
- Going full time on Ministry of Testing, growing that into a £1m+ business
- What it's like running the Indie Hackers community
- What makes a good Indie Hackers post
- How to make the most out of the platform
- Why Rosie started Rosieland, her paid newsletter
- What goes into building a community
- How we can be a more inclusive community
