Many of TheCR team are not shy about how much we love baseball. So as we’ve hit the mid-point in our favorite sports season, we thought we would see who our website, blog and resources all-stars are this year. Here is this year’s starting line-up voted in by those fans who visit our site:
No surprise here, the one with the most votes is our annual State of Community Management report. Good news, though. This year this is only the first installment. We’ll have more for you closer to the playoffs.
This one seemed to resonate with many. Full transparency can be hard for organizations but treating your community with a more human approach does not have to be. What do you think?
While there are many ways to approach starting a community, we have found some commonalities between successful communities and put them into a framework for you to use in building your community strategy.
Member engagement is one of the key responsibilities of social media and community managers but it is one of the hardest responsibilities to understand and improve. This post offers some thoughts to help.
Maria Ogneva started an important conversation with TheCR Network members about managing and avoiding community manager burnout. We thought it was worth extending and curating to a broader audience.
Even before reading the IDC report containing this graphic, I sensed a shift, as we have seen a big uptick in interest and membership in TheCR Network since late last year. Since the beginning of 2013, our community for community professionals has grown at a more rapid click than in 2012 and we are seeing a growth in partnership and advisory activity as well. From our perspective, the IDC study got it right.
We developed the Community Maturity Model (CMM) to help organizations understand, plan for and assess the performance of community and social business initiatives. Our newest iteration includes allowing organizations to assess whether they are in a start, grow or build stage for their community and to take advantage of our product bundles for each stage.
In late May we launched our new website and as many have found you can get lots of info on the home page. From upcoming events to the latest research to recent blog posts both by our team and by our super smart TheCR Network members to who the members of our Network are and how to join them to talk community and social.
The place to go to learn what programming is coming up for TheCR Network members and what public events are happening either online or in-person with our team.
We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we did researching and writing them!
