    Building Community/Business Alignment

    This week, Jeff talks with Jake McKee, founder of Jake McKee Consulting about community's role in business. Jake shares some critical points for companies looking to bring a community program into their business model that help ensure it is more than just a 'nice to have' opportunity.
    Community needs to be embedded into business operations, and to do this well, you must:
    Understand your business goals and your community priorities and then align them well
    Use the OGSDT framework (Objectives, Goals, Strategies, and Tactics) in planning
    Support your internal stakeholders by understanding their pain points and workto help close those gaps with community programs using processes they already have in place
    Make sure you are tracking both community and company metrics (and tie them together)
    This information-packed episode is a must for anyone who is running, or looking to add or expand a customer community.

    10-Minute Trumpet: 3 Layers of Education: Product, Business, Market

    10-Minute Trumpet: 3 Layers of Education: Product, Business, Market

    This week, Jeff Breunsbach takes a look at some important components of customer education:
    Product
    Learn what part of your product aligns with the customer needs
    Our customers don't need to utilize every part of our product or be aware of every new feature
    Focus on the features and aspects they need and help them become experts in those areas
    Specialized education is better than a 1 size fits all versio
    Business
    Use educational pieces that help your users have a better understanding of their own business goals
    This helps make sure they are maximizing your product for their needs
    Market
    Understanding market trends can help your customers understand how your product fits into their goals
    Keep an eye on other products that have overlap and make sure those intersection points are well understood
