GETTING STARTED GUIDE

How To Get Started

  2. Bookmark the Jedari Admin Portal & watch the quick tour
  3. Select & connect your domain so you can see your community live for the first time!
  4. Initial configuration of your community settings (Communities → Edit)

  6. Start compiling your community assets so you can complete your setup! (Below)

Required Community Assets

Here is an overview of the key elements you'll need to launch.

1. YOUR COMMUNITY DOMAIN

The first - and most important - step is selecting and connecting your domain so we can see your site live!

Step 1: Choose A Domain That Matches Your Community Name

Choosing the right name for your community sets you up for success. While you're at it, it's a good idea to check if the matching website domain is available. 

  • Don't have an idea yet? That's okay, let's get your site live so we can complete our setup. You can always change it later!  

💻 Best Practice: 2 Domains 💻

One for your community, and one for your external website/landing page to drive sales.

  • External Sales Website: A public website/landing page that will explain the value of joining & drive sales
  • Jedari Community Website: Your own private social platform that lives behind a login wall

You can't have the same domain for both, because connecting your community would override your existing website. 

Step 2: Purchase Your Domain 

  • Recommendation: To purchase your domain, we recommend Namecheap.com as the most cost-effective option, but you can purchase your domain anywhere.

Step 3: Connect Your Domain To Jedari

 

 

2. YOUR BRANDED SUPPORT EMAIL

This is optional, but it's a good idea to have a dedicated, branded support email to send verification emails, connect with your community members, and keep things professional. 

  • Our default email sender is support@jedari.com, but we can connect a custom email for your community.
  • Your custom email sender has to match your community domain in order to be CAN-SPAM compliant.

Community Domain Examples:

  • lionsnotsheepden.com
  • mycommunity.com

Support Email Example:

  • support@lionsnotsheep.com
  • support@mycommunity.com

Set Up Your Support Email 📤

  • You can create an email inbox for your domain through Google Workspace or Outlook.
  • Our comprehensive tutorial provides a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the process with ease.

 

 3. MONETIZATION STRATEGY

Turning Passion Into Profit 💰

With our automated billing features, you can transform your community into a scalable, revenue-generating asset.

  • Membership Pricing: What will you charge for membership? 
  • Membership Tiers: Will you have different membership levels?
    • Automatic Upsells: We can create exclusive gated groups, pages, and audio albums to specific subscription levels. 

GATEWAY

Create & Connect Your Stripe Account

  • Connect your Stripe account so we can add Membership Plans

 4. COMMUNITY CONTENT

Adding Content

It's important to populate your network with content so people aren't joining an empty space.

Oftentimes, the members of an online group behave the way they see others engaging.

If your group has no content, no one else will want to be the first to post. If you have content and created posts encouraging engagement, many people will react to your prompts with engagement and you'll build a thriving, successful community.

BRAND GRAPHICS

For all required graphics and dimensions:

GROUPS + GRAPHICS

Create Groups For Dedicated Discussions

  • Create unlimited groups within your community for targeted discussions, and decide who can join, post, and comment. Control group access via membership plans.
  • Example: Live Calls Group, where you're the only one who can post, so users can easily find all of your live calls.

So, start brainstorming the groups you will want in your community.

DAILY GOALS

Create Gamified Daily Goals

Boost community engagement with Daily Goals.

 

Example: Our daily goals at Jedari

Go ahead and brainstorm Categories & Daily Goals for your community.

CONTENT LIBRARIES (STATIC PAGES)

Create Pages For Dedicated Content Libraries

Create dedicated pages for valuable content like video libraries, courses, guides, or articles.

  • You can add our End User Support Guide as a Static Page.
  • You can even create gated pages locked behind a paywall that require a membership upgrade for more premium content.

Ideas & Structure Of Static Pages:
