The alliance will offer the Good Glamm Group dedicated support on WhatsApp Communities, as well as access to new tools and features that will help further scale the Group’s reach and impact.
The Good Glamm Group launches the Good Community – an omnichannel interest-based network consumers and experts.
The Good Community sits seamlessly across all three existing divisions of the Good Glamm Group (Good Brands Co, Good Media Co, Good Creator Co) and augments its content-creator-commerce flywheel as the fourth strategic moat.
The announcement is an industry-first move by the group in the brand-community space defining how direct-to-consumer brands of today can be scaled via engaged communities.
The launch of good community as a strategic focus area for the Good Glamm Group will leverage WhatsApp Communities, a new feature launched by WhatsApp in 2022 which allows organizations to connect multiple groups under one umbrella to stay better connected and engaged.
This alliance will provide the Good Glamm Group with dedicated support on WhatsApp Communities, as well as access to new tools and features which will help scale its impact across existing groups and community members. The alliance will also extend to workshops and offline events where WhatsApp and the Good Community will educate members on the benefits of WhatsApp Communities for small businesses, interest-based groups, organizations and NGOs working on social causes.
The Good Community is built on five key pillars.
Create omnichannel interest-based communities aligned with the mission and purpose of all our Good Brands.
Scale a network of experts to support and advise the community.
Focus on localisation and personalisation through data science and product & technology innovation.
Leverage digital platforms such as WhatsApp as well as each brand’s native app and mobile website to facilitate community interactions.
Connect by hosting in-person events like fun community meetups and expert-led workshops across India.
