constantly reminded that they made the right choice.
Underline your competitive advantages and unique
selling points to make sure they understand that your
competitor is not going to offer them a better solution.

time, show where you’re going and adapt your product

Customer loyalty and partnership programs can be
useful to enable advocacy. Referral programs can turn
customers into partners and reinforce your relationship
with them especially if your growth also effects the level
of service you can offer.
Personalized services and key account management
can also spawn advocacy and create endorsers.
No matter what tactics you adopt. The most
important element of a customer success
program is the human being who listens to the
customers, reads their messages, interprets
the data you collect, and fosters the
relationship with your customers.
Fancy tools and measures can bring you up to
a certain point, but customer success tactics
that work and lead to hyper-growth are those
that involve a certain level of human touch.
Keep it human….keep it real!
