Community Win: TechNet Wiki International Influence Strategies

Hello and welcome to our Thursday – Community Win.

Do you like international communities? Do you want to build a local community, but you have no idea how to start and what the best practices are from other communities?
If you answer one of these questions with at least a “maybe” then the following wiki article should be interesting to you: TechNet Wiki International Influence Strategies.

The most world-famous wiki ninja Ed Price started an article about things that work (and don’t work) when building an international community just a week ago.
But what topics are covered in this article? You will find information about the usage of social channels and how other (national) communities have built their community (with great examples from the Brazil community).

What else can I say other than check out the article and also don’t miss our Friday International Community Update.

  1. Thanks Jan! I also want to thank Wiki Ninjas like Monica Rush and Yuri for helping me get this started. Hopefully we'll build it out more in the months to come and use the strategies to build up more international communities. One to watch is the Turkish community. It's currently growing at a rapid rate! Thanks again!

  2. Currently I'm starting a local community called IT Pro Group (, and the article  "TechNet Wiki International Influence Strategies" will help me on this challenge.
