Lessons learned from launching new support channels

Early this week, we created a checklist for crafting your support channel strategy. Today, we share some stories from the field. In this video, we talk to friends of Assembled — Nick Martin from Harry's, Shelton Wirth from Daily Harvest, and Adrien Seldon from Stripe — to hear how they've navigated the rollout of new support channels and what they've learned from past experiences.

Among other things, they'll talk through:

  • How to launch a new support channel
  • How to expand beyond email support
  • How to staff social media
