Understanding 'Capital C' Communities
Hearing all the 'community' buzz, but not sure what it means in the context of your business? Join us for this free introduction to what we call 'Capital C Communities'.

Creating Personas for Community Builders
Developing and understanding community personas is a critical step in building a strong community program. In this course, we'll explore all things personas, including defining your company's target audience and how to research, create, and leverage your personas cross-functionally. We'll also provide a community persona template to help you create and share your own personas with ease.
