Measuring the Value of Customer Success

Customer success Key Performance Metrics (KPIs)

A dedicated Customer Success Strategy is the final piece of the revenue production process. Statistically speaking, marketing and sales efforts only product about 75%-80% of all tangible lead generation. So where do the remaining leads come from? We argue that Customer Success is the source.

Companies with strong sales and marketing alignment achieve 20% annual growth rate. Companies with poor sales and marketing alignment have a 4% revenue decline.

Measuring the Value of Customer Success

Customer success Key Performance Metrics (KPIs)

Simply creating and measuring a culture of customer satisfaction has limited utility. Unhappy customers complain and tell others about the poor experience with your company while satisfied customers are generally just that – content and happy with your product or service but usually quiet about it! Therefore the outcome of client satisfaction is no complaints, but also no lead generation. However, focusing on Customer Success, and measuring that success from the customer perspective, directly feeds into, and becomes an extension of, your marketing and sales efforts. Here’s what you should know.

Clear Expectations

Your brand, your content marketing, your social media, your advertising, your sales process, your pricing strategy, your people all set customer expectations as they proceed to make a purchasing decision. Do you actually deliver what your customer expects?

Customer Satisfaction

From the buyer’s perspective, “if I buy from you, at the very least I expect to be satisfied”. This is how you avoid negative reviews and public criticism, but still, a low ambition if you want to achieve retention, referrals, and promotion from raving fans.

Customer Advocacy

When customer experience and perceived value exceed expectations set through the marketing and sales process, you can measure customer advocacy to discover the lowest cost and most productive sales organization in which you’ve ever invested.
