We’ve been working quietly on something we think you’ll consider a game-changer. For nearly all of 2022, our team has been working closely with a select group of Liftoff subscribers to help develop a space and platform from which all Liftoff subscribers can benefit.
As of this blog entry, we have incredibly exciting news to share with you. Today marks the grand opening of your Liftoff Community! We’re calling this your community, because that’s what it is: a space where you can communicate and work with other subscribers, share tips and tricks, discuss important business challenges, learn, and ultimately get the most out of your Liftoff subscription.

It’s more than just a space. It’s an ecosystem.

If you do not see the button in your My Liftoff console, check with your subscription administrator; you may need additional access permissions granted by your organization to view the community.
It’s a safe space.
Our community guidelines promote healthy and safe use of the platform, free from bullying, disparaging comments, inequitable content, and intimidation. Our team and moderators are trained to thwart potentially harmful posts and remarks on the platform and will not tolerate any potentially harmful or offensive content. We want our subscribers to enjoy their experience in the community and will take all steps necessary to protect the interests of our collective membership within the community.
Lastly, we want you to engage with other members. Like, comment, share, and encourage other members in the community. The more we all participate, the better the community will serve all of us. Each month, we will award members with the highest engagement scores with free swag AND an exclusive tag that signifies their contribution to the community. We all win when we’re all contributing towards the betterment of the community!
