Open and Private Community Spaces

Good day all,

My community is private so members are only employees or clients. 
I am interested in setting up a public-facing space so content can be crawled by Google and consumed by non-members.
Are any of you using public and private community spaces?

  • Was it easy to set up?
  • Do you require sign-up, share an email address, to post?
  • Have you found it helpful to have 2 spaces?

How has this made a positive impact on your communities?
Best,
Toby

Hi

Thanks for your reply and to clarify: you never thought of using public and private spaces or you don't think it's a good idea?
Cheers,

Re: Open and Private Community Spaces

@Toby That's a bot giving you the previous response, lol.  Not sure what they are accomplishing, but yeah 🤣

As for the question - We are the complete opposite, our entire community is open/public, except for a select few areas (partner and employee sections, and early access groups).  We would never see doing it another way, as the benefits are to long to list.  The best of which can be the benefits you get of using it as a sales tool for prospective users/customers.  Every competitor we have has closed communities, our sales/success teams can literally just point to our site as proof of users our happy/enjoy the product.  That's the differentiator!

Ah bots...

Thanks @StanGromer - " Every competitor we have has closed communities, our sales/success teams can literally just point to our site as proof of users our happy/enjoy the product.  That's the differentiator!" Completely agree and we do share our community with potential clients.

Adding open areas is to get us moving in that direction
Now I simply need to start implementing.

Cheers,
Toby

Re: Open and Private Community Spaces

For them and us, a community space is somewhere for local people to gather and connect, to do things together and pursue shared interests or activities; both serious and fun. ... This can mean they are a local hub or hall, a garden, allotment, sports or pastimes space or something less obvious like – well, you decide! official site
