We’re a profitable, 14-year-old business.
We’ve been running communities for more than a decade. Our all-time membership renewal rate is over 80%.
We started our first community in 2007, when social media leaders at the world’s biggest brands approached us saying they were getting bombarded by vendors and just needed a private, confidential way to share amongst themselves.
That conversation over BBQ and beers would ultimately become SocialMedia.org — the community for social media leaders at the world’s greatest brands. And SocialMedia.org would ultimately become our model for running peer-to-peer communities for people leading change inside large, complex organizations.
We’re self funded and profitable.
We don’t have investors to answer to, and we’ve been profitable since the beginning. We’re not working towards an IPO — instead, we’re building something meaningful, stable, and rewarding.
We’ve been doing this for a long time, and we’ve gotten really good at it.
Many of the members you see have been with us since the beginning (and new ones are joining them all the time).
And every day, we’re thinking about how we can get just a little bit better at building communities.
We don’t know exactly where we’ll be in another 10 years, but we know we’ll be running communities for people working on the hottest, most meaningful issues facing large organizations.
