How to Build A Massive Online Community

There are tons people in the social media scene who talk a lot about “community”… and there are a quiet few who work hard at building sustainable online communities. Joshua Dorkin is an independent online publisher and community manager in Denver, Colorado – who runs the real estate investing community BiggerPockets.com.

Josh shares tips for building an online community and tells how he grew the site to almost 50,000 members:

Please tell us about yourself and your online community?

“I’m an online publisher and real estate investor in Denver, CO. Five years ago I started out in real estate investing… I and was looking for a great resource to help me find the tools and info I needed to help me with my business. I couldn’t find any site that fit my needs, so I decided to start building my own.

Joshua Dorkin supports his family by running an online social community from home.

I began to build the site while working my full-time job as a teacher. Soon after launching our forum, people began to participate… I immediately realized then that the site could become more than just a hobby site for my own personal needs. I spent all my free time coding the site and expanding the directory of resources, and soon launched our blog. Eventually, I hired my first coder and began to really start building the site into what it is today – a full-featured social network, with tools and applications targeted to real estate investors, professionals, aficionados, and the every day homeowner / renter.”

Did you have experience running online community sites before? How did you learn?

“I learned how to run it though trial and error, and from watching what other forum sites did. There was a lot of experimentation in the early days as to how to run the site, and I made plenty of mistakes and pissed off more than my fair share of people while doing it. Overall, I learned by doing.”

How does your site make money?

“The revenues are primarily from advertising. While Google AdSense is a great driver of ad income, we also do direct sales of banners on our site and newsletter. Additionally, we participate in a select few affiliate programs. Partnerships with other businesses are also very important drivers of revenue, as are our paid membership upgrades, and a little bit of e-commerce.”

Presently your site has over 48,422 members. How did you get such a big crowd?

“The most exciting member was number two. It was very exciting to know that someone other than me was on the site . . . I felt a sense of success, and saw the potential for people to start pouring in. The first two years were very shaky. The community hadn’t reached any kind of tipping point, and it seemed that the site could either flourish or fail at any time.”

What were the most successful strategies that helped increase signups and strengthen the community?

“I believe that the strict administration of our site has helped it be so successful. I’ve spent time on other real estate and non-related communities, and I see that the sites that are strongest are those who clamp down and enforce some set of rules or guidelines. It is so easy to be lax, but in the end, that doesn’t work. People are always looking for some angle to exploit for the purpose of marketing, and if you allow a free-for-all, your community will result in chaos.

Other important reasons for our success in growth has been the passion of our core members. Any strong community will always have that core group, and they can easily make or break a site. This group usually consists of influencers, and often times, those influencers are quite powerful. Sadly, in many cases, this power can get to their heads; I’ve had to remove many of these people from the site over the years. Mostly, they always got the idea that they were above the rules and started to take advantage of the site. While the community respects them in general, by allowing these members to stick around, you undermine your entire system. All that said, we’ve learned to keep this type of behavior in check and have come to depend on the core group of members to help other, new members out and promote the site. Their passion is evident and catchy.

Throw all that together with lots of activity, tons of great content, and fantastic membership, and the community simply grows on its own now.

What are the biggest headaches?

“Spam is certainly a problem with any kind of community, but we’ve managed to develop some pretty good processes for identifying and removing it. Actually, one of the best moves we made on that front was to empower the members to report posts and other content on the site. I’ve found that the general membership does not want that crap around, and usually find it before we do. We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to spam.

Spam and community disagreements can be a major headache. image: jk5854

The last major headache is disagreements between members. We allow members to disagree with one another – these often result in some of the best discussions, but when people begin to get personal and attack one another publicly, we put a stop to it. We try and bring these people together to resolve their issues in private, but you can’t always make that happen. In that case, we simply let these people know to avoid one another. We’ve got many members who were participants on other sites, but decided to leave and join BiggerPockets because they know that we won’t tolerate that public bad-mouthing that goes on elsewhere.”

A lot of times people will join a community and never even upload an avatar, let alone any content. What’s the best way to improve participation?

“I think the best way to improve participation is to have a team that is welcoming and friendly, and to always connect with new members. We make it a policy to welcome new members and to remind them of the benefits of completing their profile and participating. Often times, people just set up an account and plan on coming back later, but forget and move on. The welcome serves to let them know not to forget about us, and to get going for their benefit. Otherwise, having that strong core group of members, who also remind the newbies to get a picture and profile together, definitly helps.”

Say someone was starting an online community today – what are two or three things you’d advise them?

“The first thing I’d advise is to get an understanding of how online communities work before getting started. Jump on other sites and get a feel for them. While I did it through trial and error, you can learn by participating. I’ve seen dozens of sites come and go over the years for this reason alone. I’d also advise making sure you’ve got the time, or that you’ve got people who have the time, to manage and remain active in the community. Countless communities die because there is no one to actively manage them. Doing so is not easy – in any niche, there are only a handful of truly successful communities for this reason alone.

The last bit of advice I’d offer is to do good. When other upstart communities have done bad things to us (steal content/members/etc), in the end, they failed. Karma is a real bitch sometimes.”

What are your professional goals for the future? At what point will you know you’ve ‘made it’?

“Given that I’ve managed to build the site without a real, full-time team of employees or any kind of startup capital, I’d have to say that I’ve already made it. Does that mean that I’m satisfied with what I’ve built? Not even close! I’ll know that BiggerPockets has truly made it… when anyone and everyone who deals with real estate knows that we’re the place to be.”

  1. Juan L. Salas Gonzalez^The frontal panel is a little thin&#44 so it can fold easily&#44 and one size bigger compared to other caps~4|Sam DuCharme^Great hat! Big bill but only about 1/2 inch bigger than regular bill. It is proportional to bigger hat.~5|Keel^The description of this hat says its bill is3 1/4 inches long&#44 but that’s entirely untrue. It’s around 5-6 inches. It’s incredibly awkward to wear&#44 unless you want to look like the kid from Sandlot. Maybe but one for a Halloween outfit or something.DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE HATS. Trust me&#44 you won’t wear it.~3|

  2. Amazon Customer^So I got this hat. And my wife saw it. And do you know what she said? She said&#44 boy what is that thing on your head. And I said a hat. She said wow I said thanks and now she’s pregnant~5|Guff Bishop Romson Jr^Such a cool hat for a geek like me. ill never work for NASA but hell i hope we leave this planet soon…ill be wearing this hat on my way out~5|Alex^NASA patch is glued onto the hat. The hat arrived crushed in a padded envelope. After opening the package&#44 I noticed the NASA patch was not only coming off in one corner&#44 but it was also glued on crooked. This hat is a little too expensive for what you get. You’re better off buying your own NASA patch&#44 and a blank hat and having some dude at the mall sew it on for you for a couple of bucks. It’ll probably turn out to be about the same price and you’ll have a much better finished product.~3|Josh^I was actually very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hat for the price. My low expectations were definitely far exceeded. I can tell you that the bill comes pre-bent so some may not like that. Also as far as size I ware a 7 1/2 size fitted hat and I had to move this out only one snap to fit. This hat is a really good size.~5|Dad of four^Nice quality hat. The size is a perfect adult fit. If you are looking for a retro NASA hat then this is the one. The style speaks for itself. It makes me feel smarter as well.~5|Ray^The hat feels good and the material is average&#44 it could better but no complaint. Its not perfect and its cheap.~5|ToddO^Nice hat! The bill is REALLY curved which would be my only complaint. A little wrinkled from shipping too but overall a happy purchase..~4|Aitor Porro^Nice hat&#44 fits all adult head sizes. Cap is well made but had some wrinkles on the crown due to packaging.~4|Grant M.^I have a smaller head and it still had a correct fitting size for me&#44 great hat and love the color. High quality and highly recommended to anyone who enjoys retro looking apparel.~5|Matt Randall^Let’s just say I’m engaged because of this hat. Girls will literally just throw themselves at you when you wear this bad boy. And if you can find a pair of shoes to match the color of the hat…. World domination. Don’t even hesitate to buy this&#44 just do it.~5|

  3. Winter Lilly^My son adores Doctor Who&#44 but locally finding a Doctor Who shirt is like winning the lotto which lead me to purchasing this shirt for his birthday. It is one of his favorite shirts&#44 it gets washed at least once a week. It hasn’t faded or shrank in the dryer ( I do wash it inside out). The image is just as pictured and the fit was as expected. The hems have not came undone&#44 the sewing is quality workmanship. So far he’s not had any stray strings or such.~5|Nat^My four year old is a huge Dr. Who fan so when this shirt went on sale I had to buy it. The shirt fits perfect. I was a little worried because he is a little shorter than most four year olds but I had nothing to worry about. Now it’s his favorite shirt and I plan on getting more for backup replacement.~5|Jennifeener^My son who has a long torso&#44 is tall and skinny for his age fits this perfectly&#44 and at times he finds tshirts too short and boxy. He is a huge fan of Doctor Who and the cybermen so he loved this shirt and wears it as often as he can. Has held up through many washings and the wear of a five year old boy~5|StoneHenge^Great colors and printing. Material is soft. But I shouldn’t have bought it at the correct size as it shrunk. My son still wears it as much as he can&#44 but it really does look too small on him.~4|Eternal-Love78^IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! RECEIVED ITEM VERY QUICKLY SINCE I’M A PRIME MEMBER&#44 JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS! MY SON LOVED IT!~5|TaSsdestruction_X1^I absolutely love this for my little whovians who don’t know they are whovians yet ( ;~5|Ren茅e Reads^Gift for my 10 year old son who is a Dr. Who fanatic. He loved this shirt! This shirt is also so soft.~5|fembotsunite^Perfect! Exactly what my little Whovian needed for his birthday party!~5|March2December^last year (2015) I searched high and low here in the states for a Doctor Who shirt that would fit my nerdy son. I was excited when I ran across this one! It fits perfectly for my son&#44 going by the size chart offered. He loved it so much that I bought more.~4|dmmjsm^Got this tshirt for my grandson&#44 whose grandpa is a Dr. Who fan. Its adorable. Soft material&#44 great print.. and has held up through multiple washes and did not shrink up. Definite recommendation for fans!~5|

  4. Amazon Customer^I read the previous review that said this shirt fit tighter than expected so I ordered both a large and a medium for my husband. He typically wears a medium&#44 and this fit him fine. It was the same size as his mediums shirts from Old Navy.~5|Keri^Bought this for my husband in the size (large) that he normally wears. Fit a little small when it arrived and then after the wash shrunk even more.~4|Honest Jen^Purchased this shirt for my hubby and he loved it. Love the retro vibe. Brings you right back to ’77. He received many compliments&#44 as well!~5|Cristi's review^Nice shirt my husband complained that it wasn’t soft. It’s stiff but very cute.~4|KJ^I originally gave a 2 star rating due to a graphic defect. However&#44 the company corrected the issue right away when it was brought to their attention. I tried to delete my 2 star rating&#44 but I can’t for the life of me figure out why my original review is still showing up.Anyways鈥? Great shirt…. Great customer service.~5|Mario Montemor Da Silva^Looks great~5|Ana Guzman^Awesome shirt came as describe great quality~5|melinda^Great quality for the price! My husband loves it.~5|Lunchtimerunner^The shirt is a bit more fitted than expected but that’s OK. My husband is skinny so it works for him.~4|Amazon Customer^Looks awesome. A 4 inch hole appeared in the shoulder seam after washing it one time~3|

  5. Jaci^LOVE MY HAT~5|tyson^This hat is okay. I only bought it for a cosplay. It will work for it. It is a little small&#44 but not too bad. It kind of smells weird too after opening… like lawn care products. (that stuff you sprinkle on your lawn haa ha) but over all its not bad for the price. I bet it will feel better when its broken in more.~3|Karen Ensworth^I would recommend this cap to all my friends. The cap is exactly what I had wanted. The color is great&#44 too.~5|dmichelle^A VERY COOL HAT FOR A COOL MOM! THE COLOR IS BRIGHT JUST LIKE I EXPECTED. I ALREADY ORDERED 3 OTHER COLORS.~5|K. Sullivan^Used for Halloween costume. Perfect for that~3|Richard Christensen^Don’t know why some fit and others didn’t~3|MsTexaFornia^It was a gift for my grandson&#44 and it was well received.~4|Amazon Customer^nice~5|Pamela Stillings^I love this hat. I bought it for a cosplay I am working on (Luke from the Professor Layton games) and it works perfectly. Plus it’s kind of comfy.~5|Azana^it fitted well.~4|

  6. ?锟ワ俊鈧?/a>on February 4&#44 2017Verified Purchase^COOL HAT.NICE AND WARM.~5|Mr Graphics^Somewhat large&#44 but I like that baggy very casual look. Elastic band keeps it on even in stronger winds. Material is thicker than I expected&#44 but it’s still wearable as long as not an extremely hot day in South Carolina Summer. I have received several compliments on it.Recommended if not worn in really hot climates. If you are in a hot climate&#44 buy a hat with thinner&#44 cooler material.~5|JRP^This was for my adult son to use in a stage production of Music man&#44 and it suited the period perfectly. We wanted it larger than actual size&#44 as we didn’t have time to return and it was ‘Prime ‘ of course. Excellent material and manufacture. He never cared for hats before&#44 but really likes this one.~5|Amazon Customer^Thanks for a great product. Love my new hat and the fact that it fits perfectly. Better than any store bought hat where one size fits all. This one actually fits and I like it.~5|Sal^The hat designed for my head perfectly. Looks great and is true to the era.~5|David^good~4|Amazon Customer^PERFECT SIZE COLOR!!! GREAT BUY!!! THANKYOU!!!~5|Julianna Smith^Used this in my wedding for a groomsman. It was just what I wanted. He got to keep it as a groomsman gift&#44 and he loved it too.~5|NE Plains Farm^It’s very comfortable seems to be well put together~5|Sarah^Way toooo big!! More like a costume hat. Too big for any persons head&#44 ever. Like a bubble on your head. Definitely returning.~3|

  7. Crystal^Viva la Raza&#44 but dang – this hat is cut large(r). I have a smaller sized head (& a female) but my brothers tried taking it from me and it was too big for them too (and they have 5 heads&#44 not foreheads!) I still rock it though&#44 I love it!~5|Chris B.^Hat fits good but the patch is kinda crooked&#44 not much but I can tell and it bothers me.~3|Ez Shopping^The hat fits well and it’s adjustable to fit other sizes of heads&#44 what i didn’t like was the patch with the mexican flag it could have been of better quality&#44 besides that i liked it also for the price you get a good deal.~4|kyle grigg^Love this hate&#44 great quality for the price~5|julio^Perfect fit&#44great look~5|roger porras^It fit perfectly.~5|Joel J.^Everything is great about the hat. The only thing is&#44 it’s navy blue not black.~3|Amazon Customer^Perfect~5|Liam^Fine. Just small~3|Noel Sanchez^very nice hat~4|

  8. Amazon Customer^Was made of poor quality and the fist time I washed it in cold water some of the front decal came off~3|Charles^Kids sizes. Great shirt&#44 but now my wife has a sleeping shirt.~4|Landeman^The one I received is 100% cotton (which is what I wanted)… but it doesn’t fit right. The shoulders and width of the t-shirt are good&#44 but it is long like a dress… kinda silly looking. Everything else about it seems fine (print&#44 quality of cotton&#44 etc.).~4|Says it like I mean it^It’s perfect except to small. Guess I needed a L~3|

  9. Mitchell Thompson^Good quality~5|Kyle S^The shirt isn’t too bad considering the price&#44 the design is nicely printed. However&#44 the fabric is very thin and looks like it will wear out in just a few washings.~3|jeffrey paul^Love the design but the screen printing is off center. that’s what i get for buying a shirt online~3|Tracy Collier^My dad loved it… thanks~5|Music Lover^Good quality shirt.~5|Amazon Customer^True to size. Love it!~5|

  10. edeaver^This is a pretty decent hat. It’s wonderful for the price. Not sure how long it will last&#44 but I do like it so far. I’ve worn it once…it looks good.~4|J. Pira^Love this cap! Bought it for rainy days. Looks great. Great price.~5|Gracie B^Well made and pretty. Adjustable fit. Love it!~5|Nancy M^Well made and very cute! Wish it would adjust smaller but otherwise very nice.~4|tnieves^LOVE IT~5|

  12. D. Montalvo^Awesome Camo Cap! Highly recommended!~5|Amazon Customer^I finally found a hat that fits my large cranium. The white front is a bit generic but an artistic Sharpie user can certainly decorate it. It seems good quality and it’s definitely nice not to have to put a hat on the largest setting to get it to kinda’ fit. My next search is for hats this size and proportions with logos I like.~5|Wyatt^Super comfy and fits my big noggin perfectly! For a white hat&#44 it does not stain easily at all which is a big plus! Will definitely buy again in a different color!~5|large footed city dweller^This hat is not very deep&#44 just wider around. I need the depth as well… It sits on top of my head.~4|BloodSweatandBears^I normally wear a size 8 ball cap&#44 this one can have all the snaps in their corresponding holes and still fit me. Normally I would be on the last snap. It fits well and is pre shaped in the front just like the picture. If you have a larger head and have trouble with snap backs&#44 try this&#44 I am very happy with mine.~5|stcruz^Nice hat. Got it wet and now&#44 it looks weird. Will not buy again.~3|Amazon Customer^Good fit nice hat~4|Sam^This cap is really big. I think it’s way too big.I usually wear 7 1/2 size cap and I guess this cap is for 8 or bigger size.~3|Jon Smaha^just what I wanted~5|Onedogrunnin^Little bit taller than the others I ordered&#44 still fits alright.~4|Sharon^Fit alright. Does job OK. Purchased for husband as he needed one with mesh in back for the weather now.~4|

  13. CherylO^I typically wear a large from Target&#44 and target shirts typically fit me loosely.This shirt fits me snugly. I will wear it&#44 but it’s a bit more snug than a men’s shaped large shirt typically fits..But it’s still awesome&#44 and I’m still gonna wear it.~4|kala^The saying is so perfect&#44 my aunt loved it!~5|jona chaney^Bought as a gift for my sister from my kids. I love this&#44 very cute and looks exactly like the product pic. It has not yet been worn&#44 but pulling it out of the packing it does look like a smaller fit of a large. I’m sure once washed it will shrink more&#44 so I would recommend getting a size up!!~4|Miza Jenni^Cute shirt for my sister.~5|Amazon Customer^Was to small my sister wears a. Extra large I got her two x was still to small. Letters also came of after first wash .~3|Angie Estrada^My daughter LOVES it!!!!!~5|Amazon Customer^Daughter loved it. Fits good.~5|BRIZZDOWN^Super cute. Runs a bit large~5|Amazon Customer^Love it~5|Peyton^Love it! Great gift&#44 good quality~5|

  14. Yvonne M. Lincoln^Looks great but seems to run on the smaller size~3|Baudilio Rozas Alvarez^Perfect. Very…very fantastic.Thank you for your attention~5|Diana Johnson^I wore this hat to a rodeo party and got a lot of compliments on it. I was worried it wouldn’t fit since I don’t have a tiny head. But it fit perfectly and can go with any type of outfit. It was also delivered on time and had no damage. I recommend it for anyone looking to add a little southern sass to their wardrobe.~5|ReeshCMT^Great price for a nice hat. Wore it all weekend to a music festival&#44 and the temperature was 85+ both days. Glammed it up a little for the occasion&#44 with stuff I ordered from Amazon. Gotta love Prime!~5|Angel46USA^Love it. I also have the Tan. Get MANY compliments and wear fairly often. This is a painted straw hat so the process has dried it out and with dry straw it is already and was when I recieved it&#44 unraveling in some areas and cracking~4|Jo-Ye Chau^I work hard with horses on the mountain doing trail rides and pack trips. I really just wanted to have a hat I wouldn’t have to worry about damaging and protecting me from the sun&#44 and this hat has definitely proven its worth. I love it. I’ve quite literally smashed it completely flat and drowned it in rain and it has been able to stay together as if nothing has happened. I’ve had my hat since the beginning of June and it’s been great.As for fitting it’s comfortable and even without the string tightened around my chin it has stayed in through pretty hard winds. I will definitely get another when I’ve finally torn the one I got to pieces.~5|Linda^Very well made hat. Looks very expensive. Packaging was excellent. I highly recommend this product.~5|Donna Lee^This ol’ hat is just what i wanted…thanks so much !~5|Magen W.^It’s a cute hat! I’m pleased with the material and the overall durability.It is a little loose on me though. I felt the top of the hat dipped down slightly too much&#44 resulting in the hat being a looser/shallow fit on my head. Though with some extra added support/cushion on the inside&#44 it should be fine.~4|Maria^I had a hard time finding a cowboy hat&#44 which I wanted because of the stiff brim. This one is too small and I regret not returning it. I thought it might stretch. It hasn’t.~3|Karen Jean Armstrong^I was invited to a western-themed Christmas party and needed a hat. I decided on this one&#44 because it was inexpensive and from the photos it looked cute. I read that it fit larger sizes (I am a woman with curly thick hair). Result: It is very cute and it fits perfectly. Additionally&#44 it is durable (made of that paper product) and I will be able to use it for the summer.~5|filomena pizzuto^I love this hat it fits perfect love the way it is shaped in front and back and love the tie its so cute and looks good with your hair or extensions or wigs really nice~5|

  15. Matt Luongo^Don’t recommend. Ordered this on Feb 18th&#44 promised by Mar 3rd&#44 arrived March 11th. A month is a bit long for t-shirt standards&#44 but not a big deal overall. What is a big deal is the shirt quality. Not cotton at all&#44 more of a polyester blend (can’t tell&#44 no tag) and definitely no DC license as stated in listing. The yellow is very muted and not a sharp looking color at all&#44 but the clarity of the print is very good.I purchased as a you would a normal t-shirt&#44 for every day use. This material is not at all what was promised&#44 and I’m very disappointed. To be honest I wish I had read a few more of the other reviews&#44 but the overall score was high and I wasn’t expecting having to thoroughly research a Batman t-shirt.~3|D. F. Liddicoat^The shirt itself is a poor quality&#44 thin and scratchy. Fit is significantly smaller than a normal t-shirt of the size from most other makers.~4|Amazon Customer^Ordered on Dec 25th and received from China on Jan 17th. Very poor quality. The print is coming off the shirt. One of the squares looks like there is a hair on the print but there must have been a hair or a string on the copier. Terrible quality! Definitely returning this.~3|James McLa^poorly printed – not solid grey and bright yellow – insstead light grey with substantial show-through and the yellow poorly covers the background. Not consistent with the shirt as pictured – mine is faded as if washed out. Too poorly printed for the gift as intended.~3|Amazon Customer^Fits perfectly&#44 great quality. Would buy from again!!~5|M. Mcginnm^Love it – I am a science teacher so I added it to my Friday science tshirt collection.~5|Amazon Customer^Wife loved it. It was a hit at our party~4|Amazon Customer^I bought it for my chemistry-batman loving boyfriend&#44 and he loves it~5|Amazon Customer^Bought a 3XL and it fits like an XL~3|DMC^love it!!! a definite theme of conversation when you wear it :)~5|
