“Common Room has helped hundreds of organizations build and grow strong communities with the implicit understanding that these communities are and will increasingly be critical for business growth”
Digital transformation has fundamentally changed the way software is built, adopted, and procured. As the industry has continued to shift the software development lifecycle to the left, budgets for developer tools, SaaS, and other technologies have also shifted. As a result, the buyer’s journey has expanded and the role of user communities in influencing purchase decisions has dramatically increased. This creates a challenge for modern software companies and digital-native brands who have less control over how and where their product and solutions are being discussed as well as less time for sales teams to engage with prospects before a purchase decision is made. Marketing teams have limited visibility into this critical part of their pipeline with no way to connect the work being done by developer relations and community teams to their marketing platforms and customer relationship management (CRM) tools to improve performance, deal velocity, and growth.
Common Room solves these problems by bridging the gap between community and traditional GTM engines. Developer relations and community teams use Common Room’s machine learning-enhanced unified community intelligence, intelligent context, and informed action layers to understand, engage, and activate communities at scale. Common Room delivers critical insights that signal buying intent, uncover potential opportunities, and inform GTM strategies and sales plays.
By bringing community intelligence to the modern marketing and sales tech stack, GTM teams can now:
Understand community impact and take action using this data across their entire sales and marketing funnel.
Increase seller efficiency by empowering them with a 360-degree view of prospects and current customers to identify new opportunities, increase lead score accuracy, and improve forecast precision.
Tie community-focused investments to tangible business outcomes and ROI like impact on annual recurring revenue (ARR) and customer growth. This allows business leaders to make more informed decisions about where to invest to take advantage of market opportunities and how to best support their customers to increase retention.
“Common Room has helped hundreds of organizations build and grow strong communities with the implicit understanding that these communities are and will increasingly be critical for business growth,” said Linda Lian, Co-founder and CEO at Common Room. “Bringing community intelligence into HubSpot makes this understanding explicit. Investment in community was something that organizations knew they needed to do—to benefit both their community members and their business. Now companies can clearly understand the business outcomes of those investments, improving performance across all functions from GTM to product development, support, and customer success.”
