Customer Success

I help startups develop customer success strategies. That includes putting things in place to scale, team development, and creating/optimizing the program to maximize onboarding, nurturing, renewal, and expansion efforts. The focus is to improve customer lifetime engagement. I also help companies develop their customer experience program, journey maps, voice of the customer, metrics management, customer advocacy programs, customer reference programs, and customer advisory boards.

Product Market Fit

I work with teams to help them determine the unmet/under-met need their company or product is attempting to fulfill, how the product meets that need, and the value that is delivered to customers in order for them to realize quick time-to-value that helps them to achieve their business outcomes. As part of this, I help startups determine their MVP so they can start commercializing their product.

Content Marketing

I work with startups on developing their content strategy and creating content like blog posts, whitepapers, ebooks, webinars, use cases, executive bylines in other publications, etc. I help companies optimize the SEO in their content, and content is well promoted to grow the particular distribution channels. I also help companies with social media - including social listening, and engagement.

I had an hour-long chat with Sue about product-market fit and how to reach it sustainably by being mindful about creating an awesome customer experience throughout the entire life-cycle of the customer journey. Sue's a real-life treasure chest of experience and I couldn't possibly recommend her highly enough.
