A lack of formal training coupled with a emergent industry, means it’s not unusual for newly appointed Community Managers to lack support and resources. We wanted to craft a post a welcome post and show you around some resources to help you on your journey into the interwebz! Consider it a Hagrid-style shopping trip to Diagon Alley…
