It’s the story of two online communities, launched within seven months of each other. These communities are sponsored by hospitals located in the same region of the country, only 49 miles apart.
One of the online communities has been actively nurtured and monitored daily by a dedicated community manager, while the second community was left to operate on its own. The result?
The community that was actively managed has experience nearly three times the volume of visitors and has become a great asset for its hospital sponsor. The other community has languished and is barely clinging to life.
