2. How has community marketing evolved in the last few years?

Community marketing has changed especially due to Covid-19. 

Word of mouth referring has transformed into digital and people are again, after some decades more interested in their local areas than they ever have. People read blogs, reviews and look at the local Facebook groups and Instagram stories where they would wanna go and what they would like to do. 

They want to follow other people’s lifestyles and experiences due to influencer marketing and user-generated content creation which has become the new local media. Not more than 10 years ago people used to read local newspapers and articles from there. 

Now, most local newspapers have disappeared, and if they still exist the average reader is + 55 years old.

3. What are the effective Community Marketing strategies Startups and small businesses can adopt in 2022?

Authentic, real, user-generated. People are tired of fake things and ads. 

The best way is to use your existing loyal customers to post and write about you. This creates trust and interest among the nearby local people. 

After Covid people are looking to connect in the real world so businesses can come up with events that are aligned with their customer base and business. 

A coffee shop can organize a startup networking event, a bar can invite people into happy hour and a yoga studio can plan a free beginner class to attract new local people.

5. What would be your advice for those who would like to adopt a “Community First” marketing approach?

Think about the long-term gain. You can’t build a community thinking about fast gains or money. 

You need time to build up the community and trust among the people. Once the community trusts and respects one another, it’s one of the most powerful things. You can’t be selfish. 

Sharing, respecting, supporting, and staying encouraging is the way to go. Be yourself and be as authentic as possible! 

Be aware of each person and stakeholder in your community. After that, you can start doing any marketing you like and it will sell like nothing else before. 

Why are Facebook, Instagram, and Google so efficient in their marketing? Because they have built a strong community without people even realizing it. 

People use these platforms to stay connected or informed, but they end up using their money and time.
