Many B2B companies build reputations on in-person connections, whether that’s part of what they actually sell, or the customer service they provide. So in a world where direct mail, and maybe even faxes are still used, does an online community make sense?
In the Dec. 13 morning workshop, Becky Benishek, Social Media & Community Manager for the Crisis Prevention Institute, will show you how it can. From “Let’s try it!” to “This is actually working,” Becky will share how CPI’s online instructor community, built on the Yammer platform, serves as a valuable tool for its customers. She’ll share engagement strategies and behind the scenes analytics. Special guest Julie Porter brings additional insight into how an online chapter group helped build an offline presence – and vice versa!
In this morning workshop, you’ll learn how you can build or optimize your digital communities, including:
· Key considerations when getting started with an online community
· How to make sure the customer community is really about your customers
· Tools to measure engagement and effectiveness
· Examples of how to leverage online and offline worlds
