What a better to engage with your customers than building an online community for them. A well-run online community can outrun any ad campaign or online ads. This is because it provides a more direct and a more meaningful message to customers. At the same time you will be able to manage, monitor, and gather data from each interaction within the community. Imagine how much more you can do with such insights about your target audience.

BuddyPress is not “all or nothing”
BuddyPress comes with several components that integrate directly with your site, with each other, and even with other plugins (check out bbPress for support forums.) If you only want to use a few features, BuddyPress will automatically adapt, showing only the menu items, pages and buttons for the features you have enabled.
This site is built on WordPress and BuddyPress (we believe in the software we build!). Please consider registering and becoming part of the BuddyPress community. By doing this you’ll be able to contribute to the documentation, ask questions in the forum as well as build your BuddyPress profile so other BuddyPress developers and contributors can keep in touch with you.
