Salesforce MVP and 7Summits Vice President Phil Weinmeister Pens Practical Guide to Salesforce Communities

Back with his second published work and inviting users of all levels to make the most of their platform investments, Phil Weinmeister has penned Practical Guide to Salesforce Communities, which is now available in print and digital editions. This is the first book to comprehensively cover Salesforce’s Community Cloud offering, providing real, actionable guidance that helps individuals build effective and engaging online communities.

“Phil is a top Salesforce MVP and an early adopter of using Community Cloud to build digital experiences for customers, partners, and employees. Phil has worked extensively with the product teams, helping shape the product based on his hands-on expertise. This book is a must read if you want to tap into the expertise to maximize the impact of Salesforce and Community Cloud for digital transformation,” said Mike Micucci, EVP Products Commerce Cloud and GM Community Cloud at Salesforce.

Whether you are new to the world of Salesforce communities or you are looking to take your Community Cloud knowledge to the next level, this detailed guide will help you to build and manage a Salesforce community by leveraging the power of the experience platform with clicks, not code. The book provides an array of best practices to deliver top-notch business portals on the Salesforce platform.

“My goal was to take readers through the entire process: from planning and designing to configuration, setup, administration, and deployment. I provide detailed explanations of key components, templates, and also features such as Community Builder, Audience Targeting, and Lightning Bolts,” said Phil Weinmeister, Vice President of Product Management at 7Summits and the first-ever recipient of the Community Cloud MVP recognition from Salesforce.

Notably, the book’s foreword was written by Paul Stillmank, CEO of 7Summits and recognized digital transformation expert. Technical reviews were performed by Salesforce MVPs Jarrod Kingston, 7Summits’ Director of Solution Engineering, and David Litton, Ad Victoriam Solutions’ Director of Solutions Architecture.
