Knowledge base tool
How a knowledge base can revolutionize your customer experience
Internet businesses are, in a sense, always open. Customers interact with your website 24/7, and when they have a question, they want an answer that minute. That's why an intuitive, well-designed knowledge base like Zendesk Guide is essential.

How to create a killer knowledge base
- Understand your user. Map out your target audience and the questions they have in granular detail—then build a knowledge base that is responsive, intuitive, and intelligent. Zendesk Guide offers a knowledge base that is simple and incredibly easy to customize. You can then measure how well the content is connecting with its intended audience: the platform knows what users are looking for and whether they're able to find the right information via in-built reports, allowing you to continually improve the user's experience. To make things even more localized, the platform can translate content into more than 40 languages.
- Understand your end goal. Consider what questions your users are most likely to need help with. Is there a way to put the answers to the top few questions front and center? How will your users find answers to more nuanced, complex questions? Can even the most beginner user have a successful experience navigating your knowledge base? And most important -- what kind of impression about your company does your knowledge base give the user? Does your customer support come across as helpful, providing the information clearly and succinctly? Or is your system a frustrating maze that will make a bad impression on your user? Since the knowledge base will be frequented by customers who are curious or even frustrated with your product, spend some time considering how to make the experience a positive and genuinely helpful one.
