Bonfyre Best Practices

by Emily Derfler

Post a Welcome Announcement

Post a welcome Announcement in your Community before launching. Explain the purpose of your Bonfyre Community and have a simple call to action like introduce yourself, start a photo contest, etc. Click here to learn how to post an Announcement. 

Make a content plan

Post at least twice a week. Post important company updates as Announcements. It’s helpful to plan out content, click here for tips on content planning, and click here to learn how to schedule posts. Interact organically with your employees -  post photos, start a contest, share what is going on in your world.

Read the chat-feed regularly

Take 5 minutes each day to check your community. React to people’s posts, comment, and answer questions. 

Give out a recognition badge

The recognition program on Bonfyre is completely customizable and is a great way to share successes amongst colleagues. You can build out a program based on your company values, fun topics, or general appreciation. Click here to learn how to add recognition to your community. 

Post new resources

Post new resources as needed and update old ones. When you add something to the menu call it out by posting an announcement letting users know.  Click here to learn how to add resources to the community menu. 

Encourage employees to create their own communities

Employees can create their own communities and invite colleagues. Communities can be created for departments, projects, or even common interests like recipe sharing, working out, or pet photos! Want to learn more about what has been created? Ecosystem Admins can see a list of employee-created communities from the Bonfyre Dashboard.
