How Software companies and SaaS Startups are building communities?

Software Companies and SaaS Startups building successful Communities

Serving customers through help desk software or knowledge base software is one way of keeping them happy. The other way is to make them feel that they are part of a huge community. I will be researching companies using community software to build engagement with their customers.

This blog helps enterprise software companies and SaaS startup founders learn how they can build communities to engage with their customers and also bring more prospects to their website and convert them into customers. 

I build communities using Circle.so . Click on the below link to learn how you can built your own online community.

Pipedrive is one of the most famous SaaS startups, which has over 95,000 customers using its product.

The community discusses topics such as sales strategy, marketing, customer success, and also a board to help sales and marketing professionals learn and grow in their careers.

5. ConvertKit – Creators Community

ConvertKit revolutionised the creators’ economy like no other startup did.

ConvertKit is email marketing software designed specifically for online creators, such as authors, makers, podcasters, photographers, YouTubers, teachers, artists, and other individuals who are shaping the future of the Internet through their work. They chose to use Tribe Community software to run their community for creators.

SaaS Communities

I really wish SaaS founders would realize the need for online communities to engage with their prospects and customers. One of the biggest advantages of running a public customer community is that the forum topics are also optimized for search engines. So, there are chances of getting better organic traffic through the conversations happening in your Customer Community for SaaS Products.
