The issue is that actually creating a community is hard.

Thatโ€™s why we created the Community Builder Playbook to share everything weโ€™ve learned about starting, scaling, and monetizing an online community.

This includes 23 lessons with templates, Loom recordings, and other resources you wonโ€™t find anywhere else.

Four newsletters you need in your inbox Super high-quality research reports you can read in five minutes. We subscribe and regularly use some of their content in our โ€˜Links We Likeโ€™.

Transacted: This is more banking-focused, but itโ€™s worth subscribing for anybody that wants to stay on top of VC, growth, and M&A financing events.

Swipe Files: Weโ€™ve become obsessed with conversion-rate improvement, so this has become one of our favorites. Highly recommend to anybody working in sales, marketing, or is in the business of capturing attention.

Bay Area Times: Iโ€™ll be honest: we were hesitant at first. But this newsletter actually gives great tech news (wayyy better than daily alternatives).

Thanks for reading this far and giving us a little bit of your attention this week.

Feel free to unsubscribe whenever this stops becoming valuable to you.

Clay and Tyler
