Curriculum: Overview

Below an overview of the topics which we will cover during ther training.

Gainsight says no, we say yes in most cases. Only complex enterprise sales demand separate discussions with Account Managers rather than Customer Success.

Finding a technical, empathetic, pro-active and commercial success manager is difficult. Recruitment and role separation will be highlighted in the course.

Before we talk upsell, we must ensure that the initial value objectives of a client are met. This process starts with the sales discovery and hand-over and is then continued by Customer Success.

QBRs are dead, long live the XBRs. It doesn’t matter whether you speak to clients quarterly or monthly, a successful sales conversation is customer centric and aware of the natural attention span of a client. The course show practical tips on how to arrange conversations.

Do you have jour fixes with you clients? Do you have a more condensed onboarding period? When do you involve the decision makers in the background? We will provide best-practise outreach cadences for your organisation.

The Sales Qualified Lead [SQL] is arguably the most important measurement in Sales, symbolising an opportunity. In Customer Success, upsell opportuntities are labelled as CSQLs and need to be defined correctly.

‘Do you want fries with that?’:  The most famous cross-sell question. We will discuss how to approach the topic of upselling in a conversation and how we can make opportunity spotting easy for everyone.
