Six Apart, the world's leading blogging software and services company, is encouraging its TypePad customers to join in the conversation on Get Satisfaction, the provider of customer communities for thousands of customer-centric companies.
"TypePad is dedicated to making bloggers successful. Get Satisfaction helps us reach out beyond our normal support channel and create a space for customers and employees to share their expertise and experience," explained Alex Deve, General Manager of TypePad.
Participating in online communities has been a successful way for many companies to share product information and solicit feedback. Get Satisfaction provides a way for Six Apart to measure customer support for new ideas, encourage the sharing of new approaches and innovations in blogging, and lend advice to people who may just be getting started with TypePad and are looking for best-practice examples of how TypePad can be utilized and extended.
"It is great to have the TypePad team collaborating with customers on Get Satisfaction. It adds another level to their professional customer support," said Marissa Miller, a TypePad member who writes the Depression Introspection blog (http://deepintro.typepad.com/). "The TypePad team has been very responsive to my questions, and my Get Satisfaction suggestions have led to new product features."
Get Satisfaction allows long-standing TypePad customers to become "Champions" of the TypePad community by sharing their knowledge and best practices with other customers. It also allows customers and employees to reach out to people talking about TypePad on Twitter. Using Get Satisfaction's Overheard feature, TypePad customers and employees can send messages to Twitter users and extend a helping hand, letting them know they are immediately available to help answer their questions about TypePad on Get Satisfaction.
