Customer Service and Community Support for Seesmic

raccoon in circle.jpg

What are you doing?
I am working with Seesmic–a video conversation platform with a strong sense of community–to develop and provide their customer service and community support. I won’t duplicate all the information you can find on our blog, but please let me know if you have any questions.

Why?
I *love* helping people use technology. It is exciting to see people have that ah hah moment, where they start enjoying a tool rather than fighting it. I geek out over movements like the Company Customer Pact. I dream of one day presenting at conferences like Customer Service is the New Marketing. I predicted 2008 as the year of the people. I sought out Seesmic, because they have a track record of being community driven and customer focused. My goal is to help make Seesmic renown for having the best support and customer-company relationship.

BTW
For those of you who have been waiting for this update for a while, I’m sorry it has taken so long to write this. I hope you know I wasn’t trying to hide anything from you, I just wouldn’t have time to go through the same set of questions multiple times. The last two days have been like drinking from a fire hydrant. I don’t expect the flow will slow down anytime soon, I’ll just learn to ride it.

Now that you have the broad strokes, feel free to blast me with questions in the comments!

m looking forward to meeting people I know but haven’t seen. Becky McCray and I have written and twittered and worked together on the Great Big Small Business Show. I’ve written guest posts for Liz Strauss, Joanna Young, and Robert Hruzek.Thomas Knollwas part of our Lent2008 community. Chris Cree, Rick Mahn, Phil Gerbyshak, Karen Hanrahan (at least) have shown up in the comments on this blog. In short, I get to interact face-to-face with I’ve shared a part of my life with. It is scary and

ended around 9:30 p.m., but many stayed around for coffee and more informal-networking-get to know each other chatting. Some of us hit the road for some good belgian beer and more conversation at the Die Bier Stube.

are not, to my thinking, Emergent at all.” (Heck, we’ve got “not emergent” books, as well.) Tony Jones agreed. So did Mike Morrell, Anthony Smith, and others in the comments on Reiss’ article. Writing on his personal blog last month,Thomas Knoll lamented, “I offered to write a book for Emergent???. They laughed, because I don???t have a platform. It takes a whole lot of promotion and potential buyers to get a traditionally published book to ‘tip’, and make a profit. So, I understand.

Thomas, I know this is the absolute best thing to happen to Seesmic. They’ve been doing a good job interacting with their user base, but with your passion to help others, this great platform will become even better.

Congratulations!
