Every office has the same obstacle of having a limited number of resources to accomplish many goals, especially when it comes to people. To get around this obstacle, deputizing a select group of students and alumni as Switchboard ambassadors provides a way to add more hands on deck as your Switchboard gains momentum.
The ultimate task of Switchboard ambassadors is to bring new users to the Switchboard and inspire new content monthly, and many different types of folks in your community can be helpful and effective with this. Characteristics of successful Switchboard ambassadors include:
- Excited about the community
- Eager to volunteer and help the community
- Already connected to community to some degree
Once you find students and alumni to serve as Switchboard ambassadors, we’ll schedule a call to train them around the expectations of being an ambassador and the immediate goals to be pushing towards as we build your Switchboard out, which will mostly revolve around adoption and generating content. Just reach out to Tim (email@example.com) once you’ve selected your ambassadors, and we’ll go from there.
