Interviews, strategy and advice for building your online business with your host Trudy Rankin. 






In part two of our podcast Trudy continues the conversation with Jillian Benbow, community manager from SPI Pro, about three things that people can do to position themselves to get a job as a community manager, the different types of communities which require different management styles and tips on being a successful community manager. 

Jillian provides tips on getting started on your journey to becoming a community manager.  Tips like … the first thing to do is join a community.  Pay attention to the community culture and get a feel for what the environment is like.  

Perhaps not surprisingly, event management or planning experience can make it easier to get into and be successful at community management.
