So, you’ve decided to embrace the power of sharing and start your own community on WeUse. Congratulations! But where do you begin? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. Follow these simple steps to get your sharing community up and running:

1. Define Your Community

Before diving in, think about who you want to share with. Is it your neighbours, colleagues, friends from your sports club, or maybe your extended family? Once you’ve decided, the first step is to download the WeUse app from either the App Store or Google Play Store.

2. Set Up Your Account and Community

Once you’ve downloaded the app, it’s time to set up your account and create your community. Choose a catchy name and a secure community code (min 8 characters, and just don’t use your password!) to get started. Then, create your personal account, upload a profile picture to add some personality, and verify your account via the link sent to your email (don’t forget to check your spam folder! Especially if you have a Hotmail or outlook mail.). Your account will automatically be linked to your community.

3. Invite Your Community Members

Now that your community is set up, it’s time to invite your fellow members. Whether it’s friends, neighbours, or colleagues, invite them to join your community by sharing the community code. You can easily do this by navigating to your profile, selecting “Community,” clicking on the “share” button and sharing the code via WhatsApp, Messenger, or email. Feel free to customize your message to motivate your peers to join.

4. Make Your Community Come to Life

As a community leader, take the initiative to upload 10-20 items that you are willing to share. You don’t have to go out and dig up the entire garage, just sit on the couch and post the items you know you have that other should be able to borrow. Whether it’s board games, tools or other items, showing what you have to offer will inspire others to do the same. A picture always helps, but can also be added along the way by going to “Profile”, My Items, select the item you want to add a picture to and hit “edit”. Add a picture when there is someone who wants to borrow the item, it will have to be found anyway.  This will help kickstart your community and encourage others to follow your example.

5. Build new habits

It’s hard to change habits but try to make a mental note every time you need something to check WeUse first and make a request for what you need. If it’s something you only need a few times, it makes sense to borrow it from someone else. By requesting it, they may be the first to realize that they have the item and you can borrow it.

6. Start Sharing!

With your community up and running, it’s time to start sharing. Browse the available items in your community and request anything you’d like to borrow. Or if you need something specific, create a “need” and encourage others to upload it to help you out.

7. Keep WeUse current

When you buy something new, put it on WeUse right away, the app lets others know that something new has been added to the app, which can create curiosity and help them share more. Talk about WeUse when you meet others and tell them they are welcome to join the community or create their own. It will soon be possible to join more communities, so you can create another community with just them.
