The rule of thumb I think is for the community to appear active right before launch. Have numerous posts throughout the day, every day for a couple weeks leading up to launch. I would love to tell you that 20 discussions, 10 blogs, 10 documents, 5 groups and 10 videos (or some variation of that) at launch is the answer, but I don't think there is a magic formula.
We were lucky enough to have 2 legacy discussion forums ported over to help seed our community. After that, we established arbitrary goals (a dozen groups, 20 or so fresh discussions, a dozen videos, handful of blogs and documents) until we felt comfortable with content levels. Our launch was well received.
I'm interested in what others have seen for successful launches.
Thanks, Dan. Super helpful feedback...
