Discussion forums have been around for years and we’ve been using them since the beginning – they’re often the best resources online. But existing forum platforms haven’t evolved at the rate of the rest of the internet, so we’re doing our part to bring these great communities to the forefront of the web.
In migrating sites to the Huddler Platform, we strive to provide familiarity and continuity to power users, while enabling new and exciting ways for users to interact: collaborative wikis, product reviews, social media integration, user “wish lists”, and much more.
Current Standard Forum Offerings: We start by getting the basics right – discussion forums that are familiar for veterans and approachable for the masses.
Social Groups: Member-created clubs facilitate discussion around shared interests and allow new topics to take root.
Fully Hosted Software Solution: Huddler handles conversion, hosting, updates, and maintenance, leaving more time for you to do what you love: interact with your community.
Integrated Product REviews and Tagging: A structured product taxonomy and tagging system allows users to aggregate reviews and content, as well as to relate different content types in a way that makes it easier to discover by both search engines and community members.
Social Media Integration: Facebook Connect allows users to share content with their friends outside of the community.
Custom Sponsorship Pages: Brand showcase pages and Industry Insiders provide new, high-profile ways for brands to build relationships with their most hardcore users.
Community & Authoritative Articles: The collaborative setup and flexible templates of the article system on the Huddler platform allow users to share their expertise in a way that is open for revision and new material, creating a dynamic and ever evolving method of content delivery.
Wordpress Integration: Single sign-in creates synergy between blog and forums.
Professional Sales Team: A Combination of direct sales associates an banner ad optimization increases monetization to new heights.
