Let’s think back to January, 2019, when the beginning of the year was new and fresh, and you probably had a few New Year Resolutions up your sleeve. Maybe it was to exercise more, maybe it was to eat better, or perhaps it was to save more money.
Or maybe, just maybe, you’re one of those 25% of people who opt to learn a new skill. In my experience, Community Managers are among the most dedicated, insightful and driven people out there, so if you’re a Community Manager and also taking the time to read this post, I guarantee you fall into this statistic.
By now, it’s likely that the euphoria of a new year along with your annual promise has worn off, and your resolution has been left on the back burner. The simple fact is that the majority of people aren’t able to fulfill their resolution.
But let’s not forget why you made this resolution in the first place; you want to better yourself. Even if learning a new skill wasn’t your resolution of choice, these promises are made because people are always striving to be the best they can possibly be — and continuous learning is always a part of that.
Professional development is ultimately the key to being the best you can be at your job. Every new skill you learn is like getting another piece of the puzzle; when you add this new piece of knowledge to the ones that you already have, you begin to see the bigger picture.
The good news is that you can still make 2019 the year where you focus on your goals to better yourself — it’s never too late. In fact, we have a 3 day professional development bootcamp for Community Managers being held online from May 28-30 at no cost.
This is your opportunity to start your professional development journey and learn from community experts and veterans. This bootcamp will not only prompt you to approach community with a different perspective, but it will also allow you to build on your existing skills, learn more about topics that matter to you, and overall, gain a more wholesome picture of community management.
If you want to take a step towards being the best you can be, you should definitely check it out and be a part of the hundreds of other Community Managers who are also striving to make their communities even better.

Engagement is a big topic in community and it’s not uncommon for Community Managers to think, “what else can I do to foster more engagement?” or “why aren’t my engagement campaigns seeing better results?” This is something that all Community Managers struggle with at some point, and so we’ve included a number of discussion on strategies and tactics to address this issue.
Community Research and Feedback
We know that as a Community Manager, you not only want to explore your community to collect feedback, but you also need to do this to prove its worth to your executives who might not be 100% sold on its value. This can be difficult to do for even the most experienced CMGRs, so let us give you some pointers.
