    It might be an impact on the marketing plan, an impact on the products, an impact on some special issue of the industry. It's hard for brands to build successful communities. Especially if they're competing against existing communities. You can only succeed by using your unfair advantage. You can only succeed by bringing something awesome to the party, something no amateur community can match. You have to offer a community environment which is better or entirely unique amongst other online communities. Your members have to feel like you're serving them, not them serving you.
