Join us for a Coffee and Content chat with Tom Johnson about what it means to "treat code like code and prose like prose." In the docs-as-code tools space, a popular method for reviewing docs is to review docs using the same code review tools that software engineers use to review code. Code review tools cater to engineering workflows and preferences, for sure. If you want an engineer to review a change in your docs, it makes sense to use the same review method the engineer is accustomed to using for reviewing code.
However, good docs require input from people outside of engineering roles. Product managers, field engineers, quality assurance, support engineers, legal advisors, UX, and other stakeholders also need to review docs. A review process that excludes these non-engineering roles can be problematic, especially since these other roles often serve as a check and balance against the features engineering teams create. Sometimes it's better to treat docs more like prose instead of code.
Tune in on Thursday 24 September at 3pm to gain valuable insights from experts on data regulation during and following the pandemic; listen to a lively panel discussion, and have your questions answered.

Initially, companies looked at automation technologies as a way to reduce costs in completing highly repetitive routine tasks — which was largely outsourced. But the global pandemic has put a new spotlight on the role of automation.
Many organizations now need to reduce dependence on human labor for business-critical processes that have been disrupted by lost productivity. Others are trying to respond to significant volume surges due to shifts in demand.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss how the automation technology landscape is evolving and the broad set of benefits companies are achieving — beyond cost savings. Learn how automation is improving business resiliency in challenging times and the activities needed to scale automation across the enterprise.
Attendees will learn about:
- Evolving technologies used in automation initiatives
- How automation supports business resiliency
- Ways to scale automation across the enterprise

Most companies place great emphasis on aligning Marketing and Sales to ensure the pre-sales process is flawlessly executed internally and is pleasant for the customer. And of course, Sales and Customer Success absolutely have to work together to ensure the process for onboarding a fresh customer is the best it can be.
But while Customer Success and Marketing are well-accustomed to working with Sales, too often these two teams are two ships passing in the night when it comes to working with each other.
The good news is that aligning these customer lifecycle ‘bookends’ doesn’t have to be a Herculean feat, and some big benefits in the way of retention and expansion can be realized by doing so.
Join Rashmi Vittal, CMO at Conversica, and Ashvin Vaidyanathan, Chief Customer Officer at Gainsight, to learn practical tips for aligning Customer Success and Marketing to create a customer experience powerhouse, boost customer retention, and create brand fans for life.
In this webinar, we'll discuss

• How Marketing can help Customer Success leverage AI and automation to retain and expand customers

When you use content as a marketer, for it to be relevant it needs to elicit an emotional response. Anger, happiness, excitement etc. The only ads/blogs/webinars/pitches that are spammy are the ones that are not relevant. So how do we make content relevant to the user consuming it? Well, it turns out that it’s not the content that’s the problem, it’s who we are showing the content to. We simply don’t know our audience as well as we think we do. You can’t create great content until you first understand your who your audience is. Here’s what you’ll learn in this session.
- A simple (and a complex way) to look at your data to help you understand if your content is hitting the mark.
- How to avoid the content machine learning feedback loop bias. (How to get rid of your institutional/agency/copy bias out of the way).
- A better marketing framework that allows you to actually understand your audience better, instead of going off outdated assumptions.

You may think your global company is doing fine producing content in English, but in this session, you'll learn to look out for signs that say otherwise. If you can identify these four common pain points, you can start enabling content that is meaningful to local needs.
The Content Advantage is brought to you by Zoomin — helping customers find the product answers they need while empowering support agents to deliver fast, relevant and efficient support.
The distinction between pre-sales and post-sales content is blurring. Prospects routinely search for technical information and read user documentation before making a buying decision. Whether you like it or not, your prospects already use technical content. In this environment, you need a content strategy that accounts for all customer-facing information, not just marketing content or technical content.
Join Sarah O'Keefe, founder and CEO of Scriptorium, for a discussion about the need for content strategy across all customer-facing information. A holistic content strategy will help you ensure that customers get consistent, effective, and unified messaging across all of your content.
Creating personalized experiences requires us to know our customers deeply, and automation helps us know them at scale. How do we build direct and personal customer experiences while navigating these new regulations and corporate policies?
