There are several benefits to having a dedicated Community Relationship Manager, separate from your company’s Customer Relationship Manager. In this article, we cover three reasons why, like owning your own data, being able to customize based off of your needs as a community manager, and being enabled to break down cross-functional silos.

Whether you're orchestrating meetups, workshops, or conferences, we’ve got you covered to ensure you’re hitting all the right notes when it comes to your event strategy.

Mindfully navigating this nuanced period to support community members demands cultural awareness, active listening, and, in some cases, sensitivity. In this blog article, we discuss how to celebrate December holidays mindfully and thoughtfully for global communities.

Creating a successful community is a bit like conducting a symphony. Between online community components like Q&A, discussions, and product ideation, to in-person or hybrid activities and programs like user groups and events, community managers are constantly making sure the community symphony is playing on-beat and in-tune.Something community teams have mastered is tracking the health of the community - the engagement, new members, activities, etc. The real difficulty, though, goes a layer deeper into the value of the community - that is, what the community brings back to the business.

Content and community strategies cannot exist in isolation. In fact, they only benefit from feeding off each other. Around seven years ago, I pivoted my career from journalism to tech and worked as a Content Marketer, Event Coordinator, and Community Manager for several B2B SaaS companies focused on collaborative tools. In all of these roles, I applied my experience as a writer and editor to craft programs that maintained a consistent tone and point of view, treating them as editorial strategy.Showcasing your community in your communications can elevate any piece of content, giving it authenticity that many brand publications lack due to being too SEO-focused or too salesy. By considering your community strategy through an editorial lens, you can provide structure and confidence that many community programs lack.Here is how you can connect your Content and Community Marketing into a singular strategy.
