How to Build a Better Knowledge Base

In today's fast-paced world, 6 out of 10 customers prefer to use self-service resources to solve simple inquiries rather than contact customer service. (Source: GrooveHQ)

Yet, less than 30% of companies offer self-service solutions as part of their customer service. (Source: Zendesk)

It’s easy to see why: writing self-service documentation is a daunting task. And the difference between writing okay self-service content and great content is massive.

An okay knowledge base might not answer your customers’ questions or leave them more confused than when they started. Great knowledge bases answer questions customers might not even know they had.

It's time to step your self-service resources up a notch.

What You’ll Learn:

Whether you call it a knowledge base, a help center, or a product support hub, well-written self-service resources help your customers and your team. Customers get 24/7 access to straightforward answers and agents have a library of up-to-date guides they can link customers to anytime.

And anyone can build a better base with the right tools.

In this session, you’ll learn how to:

  • Analyze your support ticket data to know exactly where your customers need the most help
  • Write clear, concise articles that answer questions in a flash
  • Build solid update workflows so your team can always keep resources up-to-date
  • Identify gaps in your current resources and fill them in with first-rate content

Join us and learn how to make your self-service resources yet another amazing experience for your customers.
