Why should you care about Community Manager Appreciation Day?

Online community managers are:

  • Growing in recognition

Who is your community manager? It's time to give them a pat on the back for all their hard work.

Don't think you have a community manager? If you don't have one, it's time to find one. In many cases, companies don't even realize they already have an employee taking on many of the tasks associated with a community manager, including:

  • Evangelizing your brand
  • Putting out fires and mending fences
  • Reinforcing your brand voice
  • Watching your forums and posting your blogs

Every day, your community manager is monitoring your community presence online and off, simultaneously protecting your brand and your customers. It's a 24/7 job looking out for everyone's best interests.

So find your community managers today and tell them you appreciate everything they do. Listen to what they have to tell you about the front line of your brand. Find out what they need in order to continue nurturing your community and growing your business.
