The AppExchange community has a vast knowledge of apps, components, ideas, tips, and Salesforce. Partners are building apps and creating content around it. Salesforce MVPs are answering questions in the Success Community, writing app reviews, and sitting on AppExchange panels. More recently, we curated a list of AppExchange All Stars, who are customer trailblazers heavily involved in AppExchange, whether through interviews in ebooks, speaking at our event sessions, or talking about apps in the Success Community and reviewing apps.
Day 4. AppExchange All Star Michelle Seufert
says, "AppExchange reviews are helpful because they show both positive and negative, so you can see if the app will be a good fit for what you need. The provider of the app will sometimes answer reviews so you can also see real-time support and get an understanding if issues will be fixed."
Day 6. AppExchange All Star Brenda Gonzalez reminds us to "always read AppExchange reviews!"
Day 7. AppExchange All Star Larry Miller says, "The Success Community and User Groups help to find apps. The reviews provide candid and relevant feedback, and the details tab on each app alerts you to any potential requirements or pitfalls."
Day 10. Yeva Roberts
of PFL wrote, "Just because we have the data doesn’t mean it’s okay for us to use it to address someone on the envelope." Read more about what her 83-year-old Babushka can teach us about marketing in this post

Day 16. AppExchange App Star Emily Tam says, " Most of the companies on the AppExchange offer fantastic support, even if their app is free. Ask for help if you need it!"
Day 17. AppExchange All Star Travis Jhen
says, "The best companies put out great blogs and content about what they are doing, and they aren't afraid to go in depth with specifics.

Day 19. Salesforce partner Doug Rybacki
writes about finding a balance of solutions to optimize the quote-to-cash workflows.
Day 20. AppExchange All Star Guillermo Pedroni says, "Look at AppExchange user feedback, user reviews, and ask your local user groups about personal experience with each app."
