This is my second time celebrating Community Manager Appreciation Day (#CMAD), but my appreciation for the role and my company has grown exponentially since last year. When I accepted the community manager position at Social Edge, I knew I’d see a side of social collaboration and Jive Software that I’d never experienced as an end user.  I looked forward to learning new skills and facing new challenges. But this year, I learned one of the best parts about being a community manager in Jive is the continued support you receive from your colleagues.


As a community manager, you try and maintain an optimistic attitude when the going gets tough. Sometimes you try a new engagement strategy that you’re sure will jumpstart a community, and the opposite occurs. But then there are those times when a new skill takes on new meaning.


I remember when a colleague and I were brainstorming ways to enhance our employee training program and content. We decided to get creative, have some fun, and produce our own training videos. They’re visually engaging, employees can watch them at their own pace, and they’d always be available. Although it was a grand idea, I was unsure how to begin. Neither of us had ever recorded videos before. My colleague sensed my self doubt and filled me with words of encouragement. So, I had my first go at it and it was…less than perfect. I was nervous, my voice was shaky, the editing needed more… editing. Not to mention it took me almost ten hours. But after a week or two I started to get the hang of it and became more confident in myself. As a test, I posted one of my videos in our internal Social Edge community for another person to review. I left my desk, came back and saw support from almost all of my colleagues. “Way to go!” “Keep at it! You’re doing great!” “This is awesome!” I didn’t solicit comments from them, but they cheered me on anyway.


Since then, I’ve enjoyed making a number of videos to help others better understand how to use Jive, and get more comfortable with social collaboration. These videos are like mini-tutoring sessions, since I can literally show and tell how to perform a task or create content. They’ve really helped me connect to my end users, and better understand how I can help them. Transparency in social collaboration makes that possible.


You can’t appreciate community managers without a community to begin with. So I want to say thanks to all of my amazing coworkers for the support you’ve shown me over the past year. I can’t wait to see what this next year will bring and the new skills I’ll learn!

As community managers, we are always looking for new and engaging ways to not only get our users excited about collaborating in Jive communities, but also ensuring they know how to use each feature. After designing a Getting Started space and creating written material, we've found that having a selection of custom-made training videos is key to successful user training and community engagement.

 

There is no question that people enjoy watching videos. Looking to the world of social media as an example - we find stats like:

  • "Videos are shared 12x more than links & text posts combined"
  • "Viewers spend 100% more time on pages having Videos"
  • "Around 700 YouTube videos are uploaded and shared every minute." *

 

Some of the reasons we love to use videos in our Jive training include:

  • videos are visually engaging
  • users can get the information when they want it
  • users can learn at their own pace
  • onsite, hands on training is not always possible - videos can be there where you can't

 

Social Edge offers custom training videos showcasing your community and focusing on the topics that relate to how your community is used. Below is an example of a custom video that was created for training inside our own Jive partner community, Edgeville.

 

 

If you are interested in having custom training videos created for your internal or external community, or would like to learn more, please contact us for details.
