B2B companies all around the world are recognizing that ensuring their customers’ success is central to building a positive relationship. Customer success is a strategy aimed at helping your customers be more successful or achieve their goals while using your product or service. By helping customers be successful with your product, you increase the likelihood of them continuing to be your client. To wield this strategy successfully, you need to have reliable data. Here’s why:
With the right customer data, you can gain a better understanding of your customers’ needs and goals. Where this information is previously used to innovate new offerings, this information becomes valuable for Customer Success. You can use it to proactively help your customers toward achieving their desired outcomes. By providing them with a customized experience that helps them utilize your products better, you inevitably build trust in them in addition to helping them succeed.
To provide your customers with a customized experience that will lead them to success, you need to know how they’re using your product. Through information on how customers are using your products, you can verify if they are employing best practices and, perhaps, if there are new, better ways for them to use your products. When you provide proactive support to your customers that show them better ways to use your products to improve their business, they will appreciate the value of your products. Your team can’t do this blindly—you need to have data analyzed for each customer and formulate your strategy based on it.
Part of how Customer Success improves the customer experience and customer loyalty is by proactively seeking to provide solutions for customers struggling with your product. Customer data could show you signs that a customer is struggling, so your customer service team could reach out to them even before they realize they need help. Not only does this improve customer trust but, more importantly, sets customers up for success.
Customer Success deals with data from the start to the end of the customer journey. This means they analyze data (customers’ goals, struggles, etc.) from onboarding up to the present. When you are aware of the evolution of your customers’ needs and goals, and you use that information to constantly improve your service, you build a long-term relationship with them. Insight into the changes in your customers’ needs and goals helps you grow along with them and continuously provide products and services that add value.
Data is truly a valuable asset in any company. Leverage the data you already collect to support your customers toward success and, consequently, improve your customer loyalty and sales. Learn more about how you can use your data for Customer Success with ThunderAct.
