Your WordPress community may include just a few visitors coming read about your services or tens of thousands of users interacting with you and other visitors via forms and forums. When you’re running a WordPress site, it’s important you identify who your community is, what their needs are, and how you can work to meet them.
[WordPress for Website Owners with Zac Gordon: WordPress Community Management]
In the world of WordPress, we often call people who visit and interact with our site are community.
You may also hear and use other words like visitors, users, customers, or clients depending on what type of site you have.
You should take some time to identify what words and descriptions best describe the people who visit and interact with your site.
You may find you have more than one type of person in your community.
Once you know who your community is, you want to try to view your site from their perspective.
Think about questions like these. Why do people come to your site?
What are their goals and expectations? What bothers them about your site? What more might they like to know?
And how do you know if they're happy or not with your site?
If you really think about and answer these questions well, you'll see more traffic and more interaction on your site.
A lot of website owners make the mistake of designing and building sites based on their own likes and dislikes.
