Community Unfold: Episode 7
Community Assemble is a bi-weekly newsletter about creating and growing communities that add value to both customers and brands the right way. We feature tweets, quotes, blogs, and ideas from our experts and various community leaders across the globe.
If you’ve been following our newsletter, then you’ll know that we launched the “Community Unfold Series” last year. Since our debut, we’ve had conversations with thought leaders from different industries and have explored how they leverage the community to win the market.
In this episode of the Community Unfold Series, we have the founder of my favourite podcast Peers Over Beers and a well-known community strategist Christopher Detzel. He is a versatile Digital Community Strategist with several years of experience. He has owned community vision, strategy, and execution. He is responsible for leading the development and execution of community engagement programs and creating compelling content for customer communities.
This episode is dedicated to understanding the journey of a community manager, his take on community and all there is to explore in this space.
So let’s get at it!
1. What according to you is a community?
2. How did you get started in the Community Management Field?
3. What is the best part about the community space?
Stay tuned to indulge in some more interesting conversations next week as well.
I’m pretty sure, you must be having different thoughts about how building a strong community should be placed at the forefront of any business! With the accelerated growth of communities in every business, we’re excited to see what awaits and unfolds this year for the community space.
