For those of you who’ve been around Firepole for any length of time, you know that we’re big on building and interacting with an audience. However, many successful online businesses are also built around communities. And, while audience and community are related, they’re not the same thing.
So what’s the difference?
Danny invited Steve Kamb onto today’s podcast to answer that very question. Steve Kamb is the founder of Nerd Fitness, a huge global community of 200,000 people centered around exercise, health, and all things geek-tastic.
Back when Steve started Nerd Fitness, he wasn’t exactly sure what he was doing. But he knew he wanted to serve nerds who wanted to get healthier, but weren’t comfortable going to the gym or “normal” fitness sites. Over the last 6 years, though, Steve transformed his audience into a community, and figured out how to turn his passion into a business as well.
Just click play on the podcast below to learn more about Steve’s story, including his biggest project to date, and how he designed the life and business that he wanted. If you have any interest in building a community in your own business, today’s episode is a must-listen!
