Last month, I shared with you what we learned from the Help Build The Nation survey you completed in December. Since that time, we have been working hard to make some of your requests real.

 

Drum roll, please!

 

Starting next month, you will see:

  1. Simplified navigation – The secondary navigation will go away in favor of a single top navigation. That navigation is being slimmed down to address the three core areas we heard you visit most, Discussions, Marketing Knowledge, and How Can We Help? (which contains Support).
  2. A new home page experience – To complement the simplified navigation, Community will soon sport a new home page that is cleaner, easier to use, and more engaging.
  3. An open community –  Probably the most exciting change of all is that we are going to make sure the genius of our fabulous customers, partners, and employees can be generously shared with the broader world! What does this mean for you? You and your content will gain even greater visibility in the broader world of marketing, and your positive impact on marketer’s lives will grow. How will this work? Any person coming to Marketing Nation Community will be able to see the content in most spaces (with some exceptions, such as Ideas). However, they will not be able to interact with the content or to create content. To do that, you need to be a customer, partner, or employee who is logged into your Marketo instance. [Note: Not able create or respond to a discussion? Use the Login button at the top right of the page to login.]

 

And, we’re not stopping there. Here’s a taste of what’s still to come:

  • Improved search
  • One place for discussions
  • And, much, much more!

 

I’m really excited to start rolling out these changes to Marketing Nation. As always, if you have any additional ideas or feedback, please feel free to let me know.

 

Our Marketing Nation Community just keeps getting better and better!
