What’s new in the Community 

 

Got plans on February 23rd? Well, now you do! 

Calling all Gong customers in EMEA! Join our rockstar Community member @Vinit Patel for our first-ever virtual Community meetup on February 23rd at 2:00 PM GMT!

 

Vinit is looking to chat with fellow Gong customers in EMEA about topics like Deal Reviews, how much time you should be spending in Gong, how to make Gong part of your workflow, and more.

 

Join us for a casual discussion, meet other Gong users in EMEA, and be prepared to ask questions and share your ideas! RSVP here: https://gong-io.commsor.com/e/gong-community-meetup-for-emea 

 

Meet and chat with @Marshall Hamilton, Senior Director of Sales Strategy at Sprout Social!

How other Gong users are rolling out Talk Tracks or product features? What is your approach to forecasting? How are you tracking how your customers are talking about your competitors? 

 

If you’re a Gong customer and want to share and learn about any of the topics above (or have other ideas that you want to discuss), let Marshall know on his latest post in the Gong Customer community:  https://community.gong.io/share-your-best-practices-34/planning-for-gong-meet-up-for-us-teams-and-would-love-your-input-309 

 

More meetup details coming soon 👀

 

Three things you can do to uplevel your coaching strategy (and save time doing it)

As the Manager of Customer Success for Commercial accounts at Gong, @Chip Grossman is busy — which means he’s had to create a coaching plan that’s simple, time-friendly, and effective.

In this first edition of Chip’s Tips, Chip shares three ways that he uses Gong to save time coaching while delivering value to his reps. Huge thank you to @Robert Andreasen for sharing his best practices in the comments! 

 

Are you using comments in Gong as a system of record? If not, you should be! 

In this week’s edition of Gong on Gong, Commercial Customer Success Manager Jack Judge shares his superpower for getting and sharing visibility into his accounts with his secret weapon: comments in Gong! 

Check out the post (or if you’re a Gong customer, watch the video walkthrough here) and learn how to keep track of important customer information and share it efficiently across your organization. 

 

How do you use comments in Gong? Think you can try Jack’s superpower on your next call? Let us know in the comments

 

That’s all for now — cheers to another great week!

@Sree Kamireddy you have some serious writing skills! I love that GPS analogy. I would love to know more about how you use Gong specifically for Enterprise use cases.
