What are Sub-Channels?
Sub-Channels can be created by the VTS team to help you section off areas of your platform into categories that make sense for you.
Sub-Channels work best when one or more Admins run the space to create and manage content for the users of the sub-channel.
For example, within the entirety of a building, you may want to section off the co-working space members by using a sub-channel. The Admin a.k.a. the Community Manager of the co-working space can build content tailored to the co-working space members regarding events, services and initiatives taking place at the center.
Here’s how one property has set up their channel hierarchy:
1) Social Sub-Channels
Social Groups are a great option for a sub-channel to bring together tenants from any organization in the building to meet new people and share in a common goal or interest! For example, sub-channels would be perfect for a:
- Charity Initiative
- Book Club
- Cycling/Running Club
2) Building-Service Oriented Sub-Channels
These are groups that take into consideration a group of building tenants based on a service that they utilize, for example:
- Fitness Center Members
- Parking Pass Holders
- Daycare Parents
3) More Real-World Examples of Sub-Channels
- Tenant surveys for different populations of the same building
- Accepting payments for building services like a monthly parking pass
- A sub-channel of on-site property management staff for internal communications
Often, micro-communities thrive best when given the niche to thrive in. Sub-channels can exist with separate branding and motives that stand apart from the Building Channel. Chat with your Customer Success Manager today about how creating sub-channels that are tailored to your tenants can help boost engagement and activity on your platform.
