Can a for-profit company start a non-profit, non-competitive online community? We say, “yes”! Last month we set out to prove that not only is it possible, but it is also beneficial. Eric Larson, Sr. Projectline Marketing Consultant, (who is as passionate about social media as I am about customer reference marketing), and I put our heads together and formulated what would become the Customer Reference Knowledge Sharing Network (CRKSN).
How the community was born:
Our goal was to build an online community where people who live and breathe customer references, Continue reading →
