If you’re responsible for online communities at your company, I highly suggest you consider attending this Online Community Unconferenceon June 6th in Mountain View. I’ll be attending as media, and will be capturing on video key learnings and highlights from the event. I don’t need to express the importance of having a strategy to joining or creating or leveraging communities in today’s online marketplace. Here’s the summary on the conference:
“The Online Community Unconference is the premiere unconference for online community practitioners – managers, developers, business people, tool providers, investors – to discuss experience and strategies in the development and growth of online communities. Those involved in online community development (and social software in general) share many common challenges: community management, tools, marketing, business models, legal issues. The best source of information on all of these challenges is other knowledgeable practitioners.”
There’s quite a guest list which you can see many practioners and thought leaders attending. If you’re trying to learn about “Community Marketing” access all my posts tagged, there’s quite a few examples and best practices I’ve been collecting.
