There’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to building a community. Why? Because community building is a dynamic process consisting of smaller building blocks, each contributing to the overall growth of the community.

But having to build out strategies from scratch and doing what suits your community can also be heavily demanding in terms of the amount of effort required to oversee how things progress. This can mean numerous tasks, a lot of which need to be worked on simultaneously.

And if we’re being honest, as the community grows, it becomes impossible to manually tend as well as keep track of all the tasks that need to be carried out.

There should be a way to automate this, right?

Threado’s automation feature is designed to help streamline some of the critical community-building tasks and remove the need for any manual intervention at any point throughout the process.

A workflow that functions independent of any manual necessities is an automated process. All you really have to do is a one-time setup of the automation and then Threado takes care of all those processes automatically. No matter how small or how big a task it may be, any workflow can be set up and automated within minutes.

Let’s take an example of a new member joining your community. Typically, when someone new joins in, you send them a warm, introductory message, welcoming them to the community.

You can set that up as an automation workflow in 2 simple steps -

  • First, you set up an automation trigger that triggers when a new member joins a community.

  • Second, as an action to that trigger, set up a direct message to be sent to that member, welcoming them to the community as soon as they join.

This is just an example of how automation workflow works. Next, let’s go understand how you can set up your first automation workflow.
