    Posted on behalf of Mark Simpson, Vice President Offering Management for IBM Watson Commerce and Watson Marketing.

    I am so excited to announce the launch of the IBM Marketing and Commerce Community, an online space for you to connect with other marketing, customer experience, commerce, and order management professionals using IBM Watson Marketing and IBM Watson Commerce solutions. 

    This is the space to have an open discussion with your counterparts in the industry: those who, like you, are working with marketing, digital experience, commerce and order management solutions. We have started with an open community organized by solution area. Dozens of community members and IBMers volunteered as early adopters for this project. Their efforts have opened up discussions related to each of these solution areas to help the community get started.  

    As we watch and learn over time, we'll adjust to where you want to take us. After all, this is all about you! So we look forward to your feedback and suggestions on how we can make the community an experience you can't do without.  

    Watch for a welcome post from our new community manager, Will Machin, with more details on how to get started. 

    Warm regards, 

    Mark Simpson, Vice President Offering Management, IBM Watson Commerce and Marketing

    Thanks to Mark Simpson for welcoming us all to the community! I'm Will Machin, your Marketing and Commerce Community Manager and I'm so excited to be here!

    Here are a few simple steps you can take to quickly take advantage of this new member benefit:

    1. Update your profile. Let everyone know who you are! One easy way to do this is to click the link to import your LinkedIn profile. This saves having to upload your photo and bio again.  If you don't have a LinkedIn profile, simply enter your information on the profile page.
    2. Set your messaging preferences. We recommend getting a regular email digest of community activities delivered to your email inbox. But if at any time you would like to change your messaging preferences, or if you'd like to opt out of receiving these emails altogether, visit the Community Notifications page to control your messaging preferences.
    3. Use the Member Directory to search for a few of your peers and send them a "Contact Request." If you're unsure on how to do this, search for me and send me a contact request by clicking the "Add as Contact" link next to my name in the search results. 
    4. Start a discussion. If you have an industry-related question you'd like to ask your peers, introduce yourself and post your question here in the Marketing and Commerce Community and watch the responses come in! You can also use the "post message" link you'll find in the discussion emails you'll receive from the Community.

    If you have questions or suggestions for this new member benefit, please use the Contact Us link at the top of the page or email for assistance.

    We look forward to your participation and will strive to make the IBM Marketing and Commerce Community the best possible place to engage with your peers.
