Hi Amy,

It's a great interview. You did it so well.

Yolas evolution is just so tied in with your customer service insight and facility. I wonder how it would be without GS. It certainly would not be the same without Monique.

Amy I read something very early on with my exposure to GS & Synthasite. It was something you said about the amazing wealth of information and knowledge held within the minds of customers/users. You mentioned traditional fora and the (nasty) dismissal of the novice tentative question asker. I have only once seen this on GS:Yola. There was an extended stony silence from the community and then a flood of really supportive suggestions. Yola uses the knowledge of the user so well and through GS redirects that experience back into the current relevant space. Monique throughout has identified and promoted this.

For two reasons then we reap the benefits of "...... a Wildly Successful Community Manager". My sincere thanks to both.

Thank you, Peter. That is high praise. I guess you could say the GS / Yola relationship is a very symbiotic one. :)

Amy, thanks for posting the link!

It was a very interesting and enjoyable exercise for me to look back over the development of the Yola community with you.

It occurred to me that one of the things I am the most proud of is that in the early days I was usually the first, and often the only, person to respond to posts. Now days I am almost never the first, and certainly never the only person to reply.

To me this indicates a muture, healthy and active community and gives me hope that we are in a position to support our current customers and all the new ones we look forward to having in the future. (Although for my ego, just sometimes I need to beat one of those champs but they don't make it easy!)

Since we did the interview our champ team has grown to 6! I look forward to seeing this team grow even more. The 6 we already have do a brilliant job, but they certainly have their hands full!

The more the merrier! Thanks to Get Satisfaction for making this possible!
