We’ve launched The Community: A new forum where both amateur and professional sales and marketing people can connect, share what they’ve learned and discover new ways to improve and develop themselves.
A marketing and sales forum that’s open to everyone
The Community is an open forum where anyone from around the world can post about sales and marketing. To join, all you have to do is sign-up and log in. You don’t even have to be a Pipedrive user—anyone can set up a profile and start scrolling and posting in minutes.
Members will have their own profile, where they can find the groups they’ve followed and the posts they’ve liked. Other users can jump to your profile and even follow you.
You can post in whichever language you choose and, in addition, every post, page and profile can be translated into any of the languages supported by Google Translate, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on new content.
Find the content that you’re interested in
Besides being able to follow any channel that takes your interest around specific topics, or a channel containing all the salespeople in your country, you’re also free to create your own. You can create public channels, which are open to all Community users, private channels that are visible to all users but invite-only and hidden channels that are only visible to members.
Want a space where salespeople from Connecticut can talk about the local market, or want to connect with other inside salespeople around the world? Just create a group.
Although the Community is open to everyone, it’s especially useful to Pipedrive users who want to be able to discover new ways to use our software.
Pipedrive users can connect to the Community through the Pipedrive interface by clicking at the question mark on the top right. If you’re already a Community user, you won’t have to log in, the forum will just open automatically. When you join the community from your Pipedrive account, we autofill name, email, country and industry fields in your community profile. If you join from LinkedIn, only your name and email will be autofilled. Of course, you have complete control over your profile information and can edit all the fields, so that you only share the personal data that you feel comfortable with.
If you have questions about how best to use Pipedrive, the Community is a great place to find suggestions and advice from other users. Don’t worry, our support team will still be available through in-app chat or over email for any complex and unique issues you come across.
In addition to everything else, we’ll be sharing Pipedrive news and content through the community, including the latest blog posts, Academy videos and product updates.
In times of crisis, such as during the Covid-19 pandemic, a sense of community is important. At Pipedrive, we’re committed to staying in touch with Pipedrive users and sales and marketing experts, keeping you all informed of the changes we are undergoing and responding to the messages you direct to us on the forum as quickly as possible. You’ll also be able to find discussions and guidance around how to deal with the potential impact on your business.
Be rewarded for your contributions
The Community is a marketing and sales forum that’s powered by you: the user.
Our team of Community Managers will be supported by forum members who set up and act as admins in their own groups.
Our admins will be entrusted with keeping any spam, abuse and unsuitable content off the Community so that everyone can enjoy their experience. You can find the content guidelines in the main Community feed.
We’ll also reward admins and users who go that extra mile with badges to show that they are experts in their field and contribute top-performing tips, comments and sales content to the forum.
More ways to connect
The Community is still in its early stages, but we’re looking forward to welcoming you into the forum and helping all the members build a space where they can create relationships, share their knowledge and experience and develop their talents.
Join our Community today to start building sales and marketing connections.
