Talking with the Community Manager of Vend

sim ahmed vend cartoonListen in as I talk with Sim Ahmed about social media and the importance of his role in cultivating the community of Vend.

Here are some of the questions I ask Sim, that you will get a deeper insight to:

1 – What does a Community Manager actually do? What are your roles and responsibilities?

2 – What value does a background in journalism have in a community manager role? (I imagine it would be highly valuable in this world of communication, content and collaboration).

3 – Why are businesses beginning to invest in this area of community? Where is the value in cultivating your audience?

4 – How are customers and prospective customers interacting with Vend? What Social Media channels are most prevalent for Vend?

5 – Sim shares some examples of social media working extremely well for their business, and also reveals some challenges Vend is currently facing in the use of social media.

6 – Sim shares some insights into how to manage your time effectively when you actually have a business to run as well.

7 – We dive into whether a business should approach community building from company wide perspective, or whether it is better to be led by an individual in the role such as his.
