How to Start Community for Local?

Simple question to type;  complicated website to setup. 😉

 

Assuming you are referring to a Community Website, you can start with a local business directory, blog and even have forums.  All three of those things will encourage community involvement (add their business, comment on your blog, interact on the forums).

 

There are plugins for WordPress to accomplish all of this, however, each will require a lot of work in regard to the details for your specific focus/project.   I've setup local community websites and it is a TON of work and ongoign maintenance.  Plus you'll have to be committed to spending the time on socials and "in" the community to get the word out and work the site.  Full-time job.

 

If you want to clarify what your project entails, we can offer further recommendations. 😉
