We use an application called Satismeter . ​This allows us to push in app surveys versus email surveys so we can capture customer feeling while using our platform. Our onboarding survey automatically goes out 30 days after the account was created to specific user types. Question 1: Overall how was your ...

exactly! We actually started lower since we have lower acquisition costs elsewhere. After 1 or 2 quarters we had close % for this channel, once we had close % and realized this channel had a much higher win rate we were able to increase the $ incentive. One other cool thing we implemented is whichever ...

this is a great question. I was playing around and thinking about this a lot at the end of Q4 when planning Q1 KPIs. We decided on two things: 1) Case studies/testimonials - Instead of a $ incentive we actually attached this to OKRs for specific CSMs - Objective - better understand our customers - One ...

Sounds like you have a great plan in place. I would add two suggestions. 1) Ask candidates to put together a 30-60-90 plan - This will not only show how they think about their role but also test their communication skills 2) Ask existing CS team members for scenarios to test - Then make these scenarios ...

This is something my startup is currently talking about as well. The question my CEO posed to me - if we are going to double our customer base, how do we do this without doubling the number of CSMs? What worked when we had 50 customers, no longer works when you have 500, and definitely breaks now that ...

we do something similar at my company during the hiring process. Between the last round and references we give some "homework". What we decided is that the "homework" should closely reflect what the new hire will be needing to learn/do on a daily basis. I would take a step back and put together a list ...

I agree with what wrote here. The CSM is responsible for making sure the client goes from blank account to successful and happy. For onboarding and training that means way less x's and o's and way more project management. As Scott said - during initial stages a CSM should look at their responsibility ...

and I 100% agree with you making it easier to onboard clients through the product is the most important. I am more looking at this as a short term work around/hack. We all know that getting product and dev to build and improve takes time. We have a very precise onboarding plan/steps. We go through it ...

lots of spot on comments here. We are training end users at restaurants. So chefs, GMs, bar managers, etc. In the mid-market and enterprise we really do not face this issue. It mostly happens at the SMB level where as you said ​end user schedules can get crazy. What LMS system did you implement? --- ...

Our company mostly works with SMB customers (monthly agreements not annual). We are running into an issue where: - Sales closes a deal - We have the kickoff with the client and schedule client into first training - Client ghosts/no shows Ideally we would like each client to have a kickoff with their ...

One interesting side note to add in. Make sure the integrations do both tickets and chat. Totango for example only integrates Zendesk tickets not Zendesk chat. ------------------------------ Jordan Silverman Vice President of Customer Success MarketMan 9148445775 ------------------------------

no picking at all! My original question was what should the key KPIs be and what am I missing - so this is great insight! Can you give an example of how you would build a proportion chart and the steps to analyze this?​ ------------------------------ Jordan Silverman Vice President of Customer Success ...

I think you bring up an important point that what you are analyzing in the Cohort will be based on your business model. For us - 90% of contracts are monthly so we want to look at it starting in month 1. For you with annual you would probably start analyzing at month 12. So totally agree where you start ...

good question! Cohort analysis is a way to see a segment of customers behavior over time. We use it to see churn and upsells in certain months. So from this kind of chart we can see: 1) Is a group of clients that signed up performing worse 2) Is there a certain month into the subscription we start to ...

For sure missing a lot on the list, but ...

resurfacing this old discussion since I am currently working on this. What I have been trying to do is figure out cost to service per customer. My thought process was: - Add up all OTE for employees per segment (SMB vs mid-market vs Enterprise) - Add up cost per month of tools for employees in that segment ...

First off - this is always a challenge if your leadership team is not bought in or you are inheriting a reactive department. When I joined my current startup about 4.5 years ago I sold management by talking about two things: 1) Net Churn 2) Referrals Net Churn: We are all familiar with the concept of ...

I think hit the majority of main points. One thing I would add is just connect on a personal level. My last two roles have been with US companies with EMEA product teams. I learned early on to slow down in communication with them and not just jump to work. For example, don't just slack a question but ...
