We’re updating our lineup of newsletters and podcasts, dividing them into two separate offerings to better serve our distinct audiences: The Ticket for customer service professionals and Intercom on Product for product and design enthusiasts.
Since the very early days of Intercom, we’ve shared our perspective on everything from startup strategy to customer support best practices, from our R&D philosophy to customer engagement tactics. We’ve built up a huge, loyal audience over the past dozen years – tens of thousands of people have signed up to get our regular Intercom newsletter and our podcast has been downloaded more than three million times.
As we’ve grown and matured, we continued to share our product learnings, but we weren’t just building a customer service product, we were building a new way of doing customer service.
“We have more ideas, opinions, and advice to share than ever”
As a result, more and more of our content began to explore the future of customer service, what excellent customer experiences looked like, and the learnings of our own Support team as they navigated rising customer expectations.
Now, with AI transforming both the future of customer service and the future of building software, we have more ideas, opinions, and advice to share than ever.
To cater to both our customer service readers and our product and design audience, we’re revamping our content offering. The Ticket newsletter and podcast will zoom in on customer service in this new world, while the Intercom on Product newsletter and podcast will explore product and design in the age of AI.
Introducing The Ticket: Dedicated customer service content
For our growing audience of customer service leaders and practitioners, we’re making it easier than ever to get the valuable, engaging, and educational content that will give you a head start in this era of AI-driven customer service transformation.
The existing Intercom newsletter and the Inside Intercom podcast are getting a unified new name and sharpened focus: The Ticket – your go-to resource for customer service professionals who are keen to stay ahead of the curve.
On The Ticket podcast, we’ll be bringing you conversations with the customer service leaders, renowned customer experience thinkers, and influential authors who have shaped the field of customer support.
You’ll also be hearing a lot more from Intercom’s own customer support leaders, who will be offering a wealth of expertise, inspiration, and practical advice as we lead the way in applying AI technology to help teams deliver superb support to customers.
Subscribers to The Ticket newsletter will receive a twice-monthly collection of industry insights, actionable advice, and thought leadership curated by the Intercom Support team. At Intercom, we see the future of customer service as a perfect blend of human and AI support – so, meet your new authors: Ruth O’Brien, Director of Proactive and Automated Support, and Bobby Stapleton, Director of Human Support.
Together, Ruth and Bobby are optimizing both parts of that human-AI partnership, and are eager to help other customer service teams make the transition.
They’ll be sharing everything they’re learning as they lean into the exciting future of customer service, and build a truly AI-driven customer experience for Intercom’s customers. If you’re a customer service professional interested in:
- How AI is impacting customer service.
