February 22, 2016: Doc is Dead! How Walkthroughs Changed Salesforce’s Content Strategy

If you missed Gavin’s presentation, you can view the slides here:

Presentation description

Customers no longer have the patience to read online help or user guides. To help customers better understand why they should use a variety of features, and renew their subscription-based apps, Salesforce conducted research to determine the content types that engaged customers most. The result—Salesforce changed its content strategy.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • What types of interactive content we’re creating at Salesforce
  • Why Salesforce moved to interactive content over documentation
  • How a large company changed its content strategy and how customers responded
