Introducing CommuniBee: The Comprehensive Community App
Discover how our mobile app can help you create stronger connections with the people in your community
Around the world, communities often struggle to keep their residents engaged in the activities, events, and conversations that are happening around them.
In fact, one third of Americans say they’ve never interacted with their neighbours. And only 36 percent of Americans say they have joined or participated in a community group/activity in the last year.
These numbers show that many of us are disconnected from the communities we live in, resulting in fragmented networks of people and less cohesive support systems.
These disconnected community members are often referred to as “weak ties”, since they have not yet solidified their relationships with the people they are closest to (geographically).
And believe it or not, a lot of research has been conducted into the concept of “weak ties” and how they impact our social environments. In fact, it has been proventhat when people have stronger ties with the people in their communities, they are more likely to turn to their neighbours in the event of an emergency, more likely to develop friendships with people in their neighbourhood, and more likely to come together to form community groups based on common values.
But what makes a strong community, exactly?
There are many features that contribute to a strong community, but some of the most crucial include:
Working together towards a common goal
Frequent positive interaction between community members
Constructive decision-making that promotes the happiness of all members
The support and promotion of community-based initiatives
The support and promotion of local businesses
At CommuniBee, our primary objective is to assist communities in achieving more of these criteria with the help of a convenient, accessible, and highly-engaging mobile app.
We believe that an effective and professionally-built community app is a powerful tool, giving community members the ability to interact with one another and remain in-tune with the events and activities that are happening around them.
What makes CommuniBee an ideal online community platform?
We incorporate features into our app that promote the health, well-being, and kinship of the people that make up your community.
Additionally, we accomplish these goals by using the latest technology and cutting-edge design to create a mobile app that is truly seamless and enjoyable to use.

Here Are Three Challenges The CommuniBee App Can Help You Address:
1. Uninformed Residents
One of the greatest obstacles communities face with regards to strengthening the connection between their members is keeping everyone in-the-loop about new developments and occurrences that may affect them.
Thankfully, real-time communication is one of the many benefits of using a community app.
With CommuniBee, you can keep your residents engaged and informed with an active, real-time newsfeed that people can access at any time, from where ever they are.
And to make this process even more effective, you can send push notifications through the app, informing your residents of any updates, even when they aren’t logged into the mobile app.
Push notifications are extremely beneficial, since 52 percent of smartphone users enable them on their devices.
That means if you have 10,000 residents who are using your online community platform, 5,200 of them will likely allow your push notifications to appear on their phones, significantly increasing the amount of exposure your updates will receive.
This is even more compelling when you note that email marketing campaigns have an average open rate of 24.79 percent.
If keeping your residents updated and informed is a top priority, considering an app for community building could be the perfect strategy for you.
2. Event Management
Organizing and managing community events can be a handful. Especially when you consider that most community event organizers also work during the day, are raising children, or simply have other regular obligations to attend to.
This is why we decided to build a dynamic and easy-to-use event system directly into our community app. It allows community event organizers to create events, monitor registrations, and even accept membership payments, all from a convenient mobile app.
Community members who log into the app are then able to navigate to their community calendar and see all of the scheduled upcoming events and activities. They can even register and pay for event tickets with just a few taps of their screen!
And since studies have shown that event organizers who use a mobile registration software spend 90 percent less time on event registration than they did before, you can be sure that our community based app will save you valuable time and energy.
3. Promoting Local
In today’s world, one of the greatest challenges facing communities is encouraging residents to support their local businesses, amenities, and facilities.
Too often, community members overlook the local gems that are available to them just beyond their front door, opting instead for giant box stores and nationally-known brand names.
But when communities support their local resources, they can generate 3.5 times more wealth for their local economies – a benefit that most communities need to capitalize on in order to continue to grow and advance.
Thankfully, one of the benefits of using a community app is the ability to promote these local businesses and organizations. With the CommuniBee app, local businesses can promote special pricing, upcoming sales, discounts, and other relevant information to the communities they serve, increasing the likelihood that residents will avail of these offers.
This is highly advantageous, since the more informed and aware your residents are, the more engaged and supportive they will be of local businesses.
