We know that Live Training is an integral part of many of our customers’ education programs, and that’s why we’ve been hard at work taking Skilljar’s Live Training capabilities to the next level!
Driving consumption of your training materials is among the most important parts of your Customer Education strategy. If you're a software company, new users that are in the user onboarding phase are some of the biggest consumers of training. It's important to get the word out about your program so they can get up and running fast. In addition to sharing recommendations on customer calls or making use of in-app guides, email is a powerful marketing channel that can help you reduce time-to-value when onboarding customers.
To get you started thinking about email marketing, here are a few examples of how our customers are currently using email to promote their onboarding programs.
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending a TSIA webinar hosted by Maria Manning-Chapman on the state of customer training. Maria has a wealth of information about the customer education industry and utilized data compiled from member inquiries, benchmark survey, and topical industry surveys. This webinar focused on the trends uncovered in this study, particularly those related to revenue, content, and offer development. In the following post, I will summarize some of the key trends and insights Maria presented. If you’re interested in listening to the full webinar, you can view the 30-minute presentation here.

The market is full of products designed to communicate with one another, so it’s perfectly reasonable to expect the sophisticated software running your customer education and support services to communicate with one another too. Yet for some reason, so many of us are still using dated and legacy business systems that don’t integrate, and house customer engagement data in silos.
The Education Services team at Zenefits was looking to provide easily accessible and immediately usable education offerings to drive customer adoption and engagement. The company addressed this challenge by connecting the technologies powering its training, support, and customer advocacy programs into an ecosystem for customer enablement. This ecosystem has made it simpler for customers to onboard, and for the Zenefits team to maximize and measure the net impact of their initiatives.
