My chat with Thomas help me to shape my presentation of www.yeslinkwith.me and find ways and tools to build my community around topics related to business contacts management. We exchanged also some useful links about Lean Startup, Effectuation and new exciting startups.
It was great to have an opportunity to run my idea by Thomas for feedback. He was both candid in his view and also very open with the resources he had access to, openly willing to make introductions to others that might be interested in leveraging the new product I'm working on.
Understanding what Thomas does was really important for me, as I'm a community builder as well. Still, I think it needed a push and Thomas was the right person to speak with. He let me see my community on a broader scale and gave some great tips of how to grow it. Talk to Thomas if you want to grow your community!
To transition from meeting prospects into signing contracts, Thomas advised I shoudl find a common issue my prospects are facing, and show them how to resolve it in one go, be it by organizing a meeting, through a video, a newsletter. I believe I will be able to apply this to the letter.
Great conversation with Thomas helped me define a specific marketing strategy for blogpost topics. The suggestion to use the expanded Quora tools and Medium to build an audience is very valuable. We covered a lot of ground in 30 minutes. Very productive!
Thanks Thomas. the ideas about reaching out via Quora and other forums was very helpful. Regards
Awesome guy. Honestly just wants to help out people and help connect the dots ;) I'm sending a few of my friends over to this guy, he's very resourceful and if you're half as happy as I was after the 30 minute skype sesh, you'll thank yourself for setting aside 30 mins.
Thomas helps us a lot by providing feedback on how well we are doing and how we can potentially improve. Did I mention he is absolutely great to talk with ?!
I strongly advise you to take part of Thomas Collaborative Startup lessons. It helps a lot to launch and grow your startup idea.
My call with Thomas was incredibly useful. I was able to walk away with a few key tweaks to my strategy that I believe will have maximum impact on results. I'm happy I took the plunge and set up this call because the insights I had from our discussion will help me build a better and stronger community from day one. I highly recommend setting up a call with Thomas about your community.
Thomas great experience about communities and best practices enlightened the facts I knew about my community in a brand new way. I recommend talking to Thomas if you have the filling you have problems : he may show you that you actually don't !
Indeed you have kick-started my blogging experience. I did thought i can get all these help for so soon, that right now i have confidence taking baby-steps in blogging. Thank you so much.
Thomas was a helpful guy who obviously had great insights and knowledge on building communities. It was a pleasure talking to him.
Thomas was incredibly helpful. Before talking to him I never thought about what an online communities can do to my business and my product. I run a business selling sweets use as gift for different occasion. I approach Thomas with a specific question on how to best harness voice of customer in my business facebook page. While, Thomas did not pinpoint the exact 1 "best" technique to do it, he gave me a thought pattern on how to think about using online communities to your advantage. What I take home from this call are two things. 1. People love to be heard. This makes the idea of co-creation more than possible for company who has an establish community. As a start-up, you should always tap in to this pool of customer advice. 2. Online engagement is create by a combination of "Push and Pull" activities. Push meaning you push in valuable message. Pull meaning you ask for feedback/interaction, allowing your community to feel that they are heard. I suggest anyone before launching or put serious effort in their online community to talk to Thomas beforehand. He is going to save you tons of time and offer you good thinking guidance on how to successfully engage with your fans.

Our call began promptly at its scheduled time and Thomas immediately began to provide feedback. 30+ minutes later, the call ended with me feeling better about my own course of action and Thomas having provided solid, tangible value.
