Smooth community operations and welcoming events
I have years of experience in online community management, event planning, and marketing, and I'll use that experience to provide you with actionable solutions to your business challenges. You can hire me to run a strategy workshop for you and your team, or to get advice on your community and events operations. Don't just take my word for it - here is a testimonial from a previous client: "Before our workshop with Ece, we were struggling to see how we could re-engage our community and make it something that has a positive impact on the business, and make it something of true value for our users and wider audience. She came highly recommended by a mutual friend, and it was clear from our first call that she was a genuine and knowledgeable community professional. The workshop itself was interactive and had our entire team excited and bought into the importance of our focus on community. I’d recommend working with Ece if you want to build, serve and run a community that adds value to its members and also has a positive impact on your business. Not only did she give us direction and strategy for our community but the action points we’ve taken from the workshop will help us reduce churn and support requests and aid with retention."
