Building Engagement within a Group
1. Change your group’s default avatar to something relevant and recognizable. To do this, scroll down to Manage in the left sidebar on the group’s page, click Photo, and upload a suitable image.
2. Promote your group in other channels. That could mean publicizing your group in an electronic discussion list, encouraging members to invite other people to join, or posting information about your group on blogs, Web sites, social networks, and bulletins.
3. Announce the group in other areas of coopvalues.com.
4. Start a new topic of conversation in the group’s discussion page and invite members to respond. Creating a discussion topic is a useful way to initiate conversation, whether you’re sharing an article, posting news, or asking a question.
