Survey results: forums to be made!

Huge thanks to everyone who participated in the survey yesterday — I’m really excited about the results. To take a positive decision about forums, I had a modest goal of 100 people taking the survey. Ended up hitting that goal with the total of 116 responses.

Speaking of numbers, did you know it takes a ton of effort to initiate any activity online, even if it’s a free survey? Conversion rate always applies. Read this article by Paul Jarvis as I share his attitude and prefer to set smaller goals.

So, the big thing: our community will have our own forums to hang out! I’ll proceed with setting them up as soon as I can, considering the hefty amount of client work and two conferences lined up in the next few weeks — I really should be writing a UI audit report now instead of talking to you :)

I thought you’d be curious who are the people you’ll be talking to. Here’s a small insight on the stats:

This makes an awesome blend of talents, I think. The nicest place to ask for design help.

Another interesting takeaway is that you really like the word Community (as opposed to a few other suggested alternatives):

Also, access to the forums will be free — even though 9% of participants opted for the paid membership.

I did a lot of thinking around the forum structure, and so far settled on the following categories:

  • UI/UX (design problems, teardowns, Q&As, anything else)
  • Consulting (everything about client work for freelancers and consultants)
  • Products (marketing, product strategy, sales, etc)
  • Introductions (including search threads for partnerships and mastermind groups)
  • Showcase (place to promote any kind of your work and ask for feedback)
  • Jobs (one-off gigs and full-time jobs — free for now, we’ll see if we manage to grow that section into something serious)

Also, thanks for all your comments, I’ve read them all carefully. If you have any other requests or ideas about the forums — just hit reply and let me know. Thanks again my friends, and have a wonderful day!
