Your business success is now forever linked to the success of your customers Customer Success is the groundbreaking guide to the exciting new model of customer management. Business relationships are fundamentally changing. In the world B.C. (Before Cloud), companies could focus totally on sales and marketing because customers were often 'stuck' after purchasing. Therefore, all of the 'post-sale' experience was a cost center in most companies. In the world A.B. (After Benioff), with granular per-year, per-month or per-use pricing models, cloud deployments and many competitive options, customers now have the power. As such, B2B vendors must deliver success for their clients to achieve success for their own businesses.

Customer success teams are being created in companies to quarterback the customer lifecycle and drive adoption, renewals, up-sell and advocacy. The Customer Success philosophy is invading the boardroom and impacting the way CEOs think about their business. Today, Customer Success is the hottest B2B movement since the advent of the subscription business model, and this book is the one-of-a-kind guide that shows you how to make it work in your company.

From the initial planning stages through execution, you'll have expert guidance to help you:

  • Understand the context that led to the start of the Customer Success movement
  • Build a Customer Success strategy proven by the most competitive companies in the world
  • Implement an action plan for structuring the Customer Success organization, tiering your customers, and developing the right cross-functional playbooks
Customers want products that help them achieve their own business outcomes. By enabling your customers to realize value in your products, you're protecting recurring revenue and creating a customer for life. Customer Success shows you how to kick start your customer-centric revolution, and make it stick for the long term.

From the Inside Flap:

The subscription business model is hot—from software to music to movies to diet programs—investors and public markets want businesses that create recurring payments from unlimited customers. The old sales and marketing methods can handle attracting new customers for growth, however, only in the last five years has a discipline emerged that views growth in relation to retention, not just sales. Customer Success is the first-of-its-kind resource for business leaders who need best-in-class guidance for developing a recurring revenue business.

Software as a Service (SaaS) businesses led the charge into the subscription economy, and this guidebook is highly relevant to leaders of those companies by providing a methodology for creating the infrastructure and teams to both renew and upsell customers. The success of SaaS companies has spread across industries, and now all types of businesses are looking to convert to a subscription or pay-as-you-go model, or at least add a like component to their existing business model. Leaders in these situations can equally benefit from the A-to-Z coverage inside, which walks you from the very beginnings of the Customer Success movement to the latest best practices and success stories.

The practical chapters are rated by relevance to business type for quick reference and focused learning. Additionally, this next-level tool doesn't stop at a singular perspective, but features authorial contributions from today's leading Customer Success practitioners who share their personal insights into the realities of focusing a company on the success of its customers.

Whether this is your first step into a recurring revenue business model or you need to revamp your SaaS company into the big leagues, this game-changing presentation by three industry influencers from the leading company in Customer Success gives you the understanding and solutions you're looking for, including:

  • The Ten Laws of Customer Success, including complete explanations, real-world examples, and customized information for different business needs
  • How Cloud technology has redefined Customer Success and what a customer-centric company needs to do to maintain a competitive edge
  • An in-depth look at the critical technology needed for outstanding Customer Success
  • Easy-to-understand approaches to capturing the sophisticated metrics that drive prosperous customer-centric programs

Accelerate your revenue model with Customer Success.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for CUSTOMER SUCCESS

"Having been at Salesforce to witness the birth of Customer Success, I'm excited to see a book focused on this subject around which I have so much personal passion. One of the foundations of our success at Salesforce was Customer Success so it's particularly great to see the history of the discipline, along with a glimpse at the future, documented in this book. I recommend it to every CEO or leader out there who is truly seeking to build a customer success-centric company."
—Jim Steele, President and Chief Customer Officer, Insidesales and former President and Chief Customer Officer, Salesforce

"As one of the early investors in the technology of Customer Success, I'm particularly pleased to see the rapidly accelerating growth of the entire industry. The 'subscription tsunami' as outlined in the book has profoundly disrupted the software world, and forced a focus on customers that did not exist previously. This book will help those who need to understand how this brave new world works, and also people looking for some practical guidance on how to execute successfully in the subscription economy. The team at Gainsight helped pioneer the Customer Success movement and definitely has the chops to put together this hitchhiker's guide for those traveling the same road."
—Roger Lee, General Partner, Battery Ventures

"The world is moving to a Subscription Economy, and this book directly addresses that shift. Smart companies aren't trying to pitch products to strangers anymore. They're figuring out how to grow, monetize and build an ongoing, mutually beneficial relationship with a dedicated base of subscribers. Customer success is fundamental to this process, and this book documents three core aspects — philosophy, discipline, and organization — in a sharp, practical way."
—Tien Tzuo, CEO and Founder, Zuora
