Meaningful Mondays: Meet SHIFTMeaningful
Hey Community, This is @David Leon and me, coming at you with some pretty cool news about a new project we're working on at Typeform: SHIFT! So, what is Shift? We're glad you asked. Shift is a new Typeform series that sheds light on Typeform customers that are doing great things for their community and in doing so, making the world just that much better. The Shift series will pair short and powerful documentaries with long form articles that will offer a truly reflective narrative of our customers and their journeys. Why are we doing this? We want to learn what it takes to be a truly meaningful brand and offer those who are working through this, a stage in which to share their stories and inspire others. Creating a shift in someone’s perspective can be hard work. We chose to name this series Shift because it signifies the change the people we will portray want to see in the world, or the personal struggle they have overcome by shifting their outlook. It's also the result we would lik
Hello and welcome to part three in our series on Meaningful Conversations—our free, virtual, two-day event that’s happening in just over a week on April 20 + 21, 2021! If you want to start from the beginning you can read part one here and part two here. And if you want to register for our upcoming event—which I very much hope you do!—you can sign up for free here. This week, I’m excited to once again take you behind the scenes and share more about a parallel stream of events we’ll be running alongside the conversations we talked about last week. In addition to hearing from individuals and thought leaders on a range of topics that we feel are worth discussing, given everything that’s been going on around us for the last year plus, we’ll also be hosting a series of interactive workshops that aim to teach our attendees about our products—Typeform, VideoAsk, and/or Chat. These will all be taught by Typeform team members, customers, or a combination of both. Read on to see what community me
I spent 15 years working in the food + beverage industry. I’ve been a server, a line cook, a bartender, a greeter. I’ve worked in catering, on a food truck, built restaurants from the ground up. I’ve written about food in print and online, and even briefly hosted my own cooking show. Perhaps you’re reading this and thinking, “She must really like food.” Well, that’s true—I do. But that’s not why I was so drawn to the food industry. Many people who work in the F+B industry don’t do it because they love food—it’s more personal than that. Food brings people together. Great conversations happen around great meals. There’s a special kind of joy, a wonderful closeness, that emerges when people connect around a dining table. And that is why I was so drawn to working in food. I have always believed, deeply, in the power of conversation to forge connections. When I was younger, that took the form of bringing people together over food. Now, I have the chance to do that at Typeform. If you’re st
Hello and welcome to part four, the last chapter in our series previewing Meaningful Conversations—our free, virtual, two-day event that’s kicking off TOMORROW, April 20th! If you want to start from the beginning you can read part one here, part two here, and part three here. And if you want to register for our upcoming event—which I very much hope you do!—you can sign up for free here. This week, I want to shine the spotlight on what’s happening—and has happened for the last 4+ months—behind the scenes. This event would not be possible without the incredible, awe-inspiring team that’s dedicated so much time and energy to bringing this baby to life. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. An event like Meaningful Conversations takes a village. Typeform has no formal events team, which means that we all did this in addition to our full time jobs. I mean this when I say it—this is an event that comes from the heart and I hope it resonates with you too. I've kvelled about our speaker
March Community Round UpCommunity Round Up
Howdy!March went really fast, it kind of slipped through my fingers which I guess it means we have been pretty busy here at the Typeform Community HQ. Here are some community achievements that I’d love to share with you all: We’ve reached 3,000 creators - woohoo! We are not far from reaching 1,000 community conversations! (aka topics started). On a weekly basis we have about 1,500 visiting the community already - keeps going up! Google is loving our community - at the moment our community content gets about 1,000 impressions a day on Google. Let’s remember we only launched about 10 weeks ago, As usual had some great engagement from the Typeform team, including: Meaningful Mondays -@paul started every week on a meaningful note with his thought-provoking discussion points.Webinar: The art of outcome quiz engagement -@amy.carlson ran a live workshop explaining how to use logic to build engrossing quizzes.Integrations Digest -@rachelmkalt gave an update on a couple of interesting
Well, well, well. Only after 64 days since launch date, our lovely Typeform online community has already reached 3,000 creators And that deserves a Cartlon Banks dance. Im super grateful for everyone who has joined so far, we are growing and have plans to grow this place even further to help you all connect and - As @James - be badass at making typeforms. Creator 3,000 was either @jnewnam or @WebCars Group - can’t be 100% sure about it. Anyhow, thanks both for joining!Keep joining folks, we can’t wait to see what you are building.
Last week we announced that our upcoming event, Meaningful Conversations, was officially live, and to celebrate I shared a bit about my why—why I do what I do, why I ended up at Typeform, and why I’ve poured so much of my heart and soul into our Meaningful Conversations event. If you missed that article, you can read it here. This week, I’m excited to take you behind the scenes and share more about how we’ve organized our event, and what conversations we’ll be having across the two days of Meaningful Conversations—April 20 + 21, 2021. Some months ago, a core group of us gathered around a virtual white board for 4+ hours to begin to workshop the event. All that we knew coming in was that we wanted to host an event that was called “Meaningful Conversations”...and that was basically it. We started the workshop by openly sharing our most memorable conversations. Some of us talked about hearing the stories of people who’d come from a rough past and, through sheer willpower and mental fortit

[Meaningful Mondays] What about you?Meaningful
I've talked a lot over the last five weeks (has it really been that long?!) about what it means to be meaningful and how we're thinking about it here at Typeform. So... what about you? How does that look for you? Some of you already shared some things you could do, but always curious to hear more. In the end, we should all strive to become meaningful to our customers, employees, partners, etc. The highest aspiration of a business (from a freelancer to a 5 person startup to 300 strong) is to become a brand that matters to its community. You don't have to change the whole world -- just your corner of it. Paul
February Community RoundupMonthly Round Up
Hi peeps! February is the shortest month of the year, but it looks like that doesn’t mean much when it comes to cool thing happening around us – we’ve had Carnival, Saint Valentine’s day, Black History Month and, more importantly, my mom’s birthday Besides all these great events, February was also the first month of our Typeform community! We have actually achieved a ton of things in less than 28 days. Let me list a few: We’re more than 2,000 community creators! We’ve asked more than 300 questions and posted over 1,500 replies. We have liked each others’ content 2,900 times. You folks seem to enjoy a good post! 135 questions have had a ‘best answer’. We’ve had a plethora of collaborators from Typeform here in the community, including folks from our Support, Product, Marketing, and Data teams. Big round of applause to them, these busy bees have been going the extra mile to share their cool stuff with us here in the community. Content wise these are the highlights from Februar
Last week I spoke about how building a meaningful brand is about giving more than what you're getting back. Today I wanted to share how that looks in practical terms for us here at Typeform. What are we doing to put the success of you, our community, and the wider community at large at the forefront of what we want to become? And how will this benefit you in terms of our product offering? Where to find the Meaningful interviews mentioned in the videos:Rand Fishkin discusses everything from imposter syndrome, to dropping out of college, and some golden nuggets on SEO success. Adam Lisagar talks about vulnerability, film sets, and the unmatched power of being yourself. What do you think about the Meaningful Design framework? How could you deliver a more personal, contextual, beautiful, and relevant experience to your community? Happy Monday
To become a meaningful brand to someone, you have to give more than you get. Because of clutter (media, products, features, content), you're going to have to radically differentiate yourself. Think about your own company. How will you differentiate yourself from all the clutter? In what ways can you give more to others? How can your turn your marketing into the ultimate benefit for your customer, or potential customers? How can you make your advertising valuable? I'd love to discuss this with you here. Here are the two "Typeform presents" interviews mentioned in the video:Part One: Rand Fishkin – Paul sits with Rand Fishkin, founder of Moz and SparkToro, to discuss everything from imposter syndrome, to dropping out of college, and some golden nuggets on SEO success.Part Two: Adam Lisagor - Paul travels to Los Angeles (pre-Covid) to meet with Adam Lisagor, founder of Sandwich. They discuss vulnerability, film sets, and the unmatched power of being yourself.

Hello Community! We hope you are having a great Tuesday. Today I’m writing to let you know that we're making the login process safer by using Okta! Your security is a top priority for us that's why we're putting Okta in charge of the login process (starting on the 1st of March). Since this is a change to our log in process, we want to make sure we cover any questions you may have prior to the release. If this is the case, or if you're just curious, we've created this quick FAQ: Will this change affect any login flows? and will it affect how Team accounts work? Nope. Changes are only on 'behind the scenes'. It only makes the login process safer and doesn't affect anything else. You will be able to log in to your account as usual with your same email address and password. Will this change affect integrations?Nope. Is there anything users need to do on their end?Nope. Do I need a separate Okta account?Nope. Does this encrypt data?This change doesn't affect data collection, but we unde
Hey y'all, I'm back for another #meaningfulmondays session.Following last week's discussion on what meaningful means, Let's talk about what meaningful brands do and how that makes them – and their communities – successful... There's been a ton of research done about meaningful brands. It shows that meaningful brands are more successful and attract more loyal customers.Meaningful Brands deliver on three things: Functional Benefits - make sure whatever you create ticks the right boxes for your customers and includes what's needed to help them accomplish what they need to. PersonalBenefits - think about the benefits beyond your product and its function. Who do you want your customer to become? What aspirations do they have and how does your brand tie into that? CollectiveBenefits - contribute to the greater community and make it a better place to live and work in - beyond your community of customers and employees. 💡 To what extent does (or could) your business deliver on these thr
Hey y'all, long time listener, first time caller I'm Paul, director of brand @typeform, and @James asked me to share a little about how we see the future at Typeform. Anyway, I was sitting in the park and decided to shoot this video on the spot. Let's talk about meaningful… In summary, meaningful means: Becoming so relevant to people (employees and customers) that we become irreplaceable in their hearts and minds Caring more than anybody else Having an approach where the other side wins more than you We want Typeform to become a meaningful brand – and believe that you should strive for a meaningful brand, too. 💡 Does this resonate with you? What difference do you want your business to make in people's lives? How does your own brand articulate your values? Interested to hear your thoughts. Paul will be back next week with part two where he'll talk more about making your brand meaningful (subscribe to this category to stay updated).In the meantime check out some of the thought-
Hello everyone! I’m thrilled to tell you that we’ll be soon launching our very own Typeform online community! We’ve spent months bringing all the wagons together and I can confidently say that the community train is ready to hit the road running. So far the community has been in ‘private mode’, meaning that only those with the link could access the site. That’ll change next week when we’ll finally open it up to the world! During beta we managed to set up and integrate our community tech with other Typeform systems, consolidate a community team and craft an ambitious content plan to inspire our community to build awesome typeforms. Our plan is to start the roll out on January the 26th and extend our campaign and launch efforts all the way to the end of February. The main focus on Q1 is having a successful launch, which means promoting the community to our user base and setting the foundation of an incredibly rich network of creators who are passionate about building conversations wit
Soon after joining Typeform last summer I (virtually) met Paul, our Brand and Comms Director. He opened the meeting with “I’ve been waiting for you for quite some time”. When I asked him about his view about the Typeform Community, Paul was brutally honest: “No brand will survive the new decade without a strong community”. I couldn’t agree more. We had plans to launch the community in 2020 but things got delayed due to COVID. At Typeform we are a pretty stubborn bunch though (in a good way) and after a lot of planning, teamwork and close collaboration with customers, we finally managed to officially launch our very own community . Why all the trouble then? Our main goal as a brand is getting closer to our community and creating a more meaningful relationship with you all, so this is will be a vital tool for us to execute our ‘meaningful’ strategy. We love this quote from Christine Werner, our Director of Customer Success, and main community sponsor at Typeform. “We built this commu

November Community MVP ready. Invite Typeform staff to the community to test the sign up process and other basic functionality.

Tweak structure, notifications and phrases based on feedback. December Enable SSO - users to be able to link their typeform accounts to the community December the 3rd: invite circa 2,350 fresh typeform users December the 10th: invite a new group of circa 2,350 users.

Hope you are all having a fab day!I just wanted to write a brief post to explain who is currently in the community and how to identify the different member groups. We want to create One Typeform Community, so despite having different groups we are all equally awesome in here - no hierarchies, no favouritism. Community team: anyone with a black Typeform logo over their profile picture is part of the community team - these are the go-to folks for anything community or Typeform related. Read the post below to see how is currently part of the community team. Typeform Staff: these folks work at Typeform, but they are not part of the community team. Each of them is an expert in a specific area, so their input and participation will be be key - they will help us to better understand how things work and how to make the most of our tool.Often times they will be in the community just to have a chat, connect with others and share ideas. We are a pretty sociable bunch at Typeform so expect so
