Webinar: Key Trends in Community for 2023

Community exploded in 2022. McKinsey called community the “big idea” in marketing for the decade. Marketing and events management is rapidly converging with community, community roles are specialising, and there are a growing number of specialty community tools and platforms.

Guild’s annual community industry review with 30+ experts highlighted 14 trends for 2023, including the rise of Community Based Marketing (CBM), Pop up communities, Subscription/MicroPayment and DAOs and an increased alignment to Influencer Marketing and Employee Advocacy.

Community and marketing experts Ashley Friedlein, Michelle Goodall, Evan Hamilton and Shana Sumers came together for a webinar in January 2023 "Key Trends in Community for 2023" - to catch up with the recording, join Guild Community Collective.
