Getting to Know the #CMWorld Community

I was first introduced to the #CMWorld community three years ago. And now, I can’t imagine my life without it. Think I’m overexaggerating? Some of my closest friends are in the community. When I need help on a project I’m working on, I turn to community members for advice. And clearly, the community is made up of some very good-looking people. (Yes, that’s me on the right side of the photo, but that’s not why I say that. You have to admit; this group is attractive.)

My first interaction with the community was through the weekly #CMWorld Twitter chats. Can you believe they began in 2013? Nearly five years later, we have brought together hundreds of marketers. We have honored three Community Champions at Content Marketing World. (I’m looking at you, Mike Myers, Erika Heald, and Berrak Sarikaya.) And we have exchanged thousands of tweets.

This tight-knit community is smart, generous, and kind. So we turned the tables. Instead of a traditional chat discussing a content marketing topic, we wanted to focus on the content marketer! We learned so much about our community during today’s chat. We have a few highlights here. And if you want to read more responses, take a look at our Twitter Moment.

What path led you to a career in content marketing?

Several community members studied marketing in college, while others took a less conventional path.

What has been your greatest professional achievement?

Most people don’t have one big accomplishment that stands above all others. But our community isn’t most people! And let me tell you, we are beyond impressed.
