The community often gets pitched to internal and external audiences in noble terms; connect, collaborate, unite etc…
More and more, we find the simplest route is to stress the time you might save.
Next time you have a problem at work you don’t know the answer to, login to our community and ask. Then move on to the next task. Check back in in a few hours and find several great solutions to choose from.
You don’t need to pester your boss or spend hours browsing the web. Instead, ask the question and get great responses delivered right to you.
Next time you have a problem, try it in our community if you like. You might be amazed just how much time you can save.
This works with internal evangelism too, product, support managers, and marketing can circumvent a lengthy process by testing ideas in the community first.
Sometimes it’s just easier to talk about saving time than anything else.
Love this - stuff the usual remarks about connecting and collaborating - focus on the simple things: saving time and improving your efficiency! I think i’m going to share it in our Community in fact!
While our communities are really built on connection and support, I like the tactic of also bringing up “time saved” when appropriate.
