Defining Success from the Customer’s Perspective
Shep Hyken interviews Dan Balcauski, founder and principal consultant for Product Tranquility, where he focuses on helping high-volume B2B SaaS CEOs define pricing and packaging for new products. They discuss what companies can learn from subscription models about focusing on the customer’s journey and feedback.
Anything can be a subscription. Whether you are selling razor blades, pens, or a streaming service, the goal is to get the customers to say that they are getting enough value for your products to continue doing business with you. A subscription model solidifies the relationship between the business and the customer but it also requires a focus on customer experience.
How do companies ensure that their customers continuously get value over time so they don’t leave you for your competitors?
What are the outcomes that your customers are trying to achieve?
Most of the time businesses focus on operational efficiency, revenue, and profits. These are all great things. But, the problem is that these are not the criteria that the customer is using to define success. Companies need to understand that they are not the center of the customer’s world. We need to understand the full journey.
This week on Amazing Business Radio, I interview Dan Bacaulski, founder and principal consultant for Product Tranquility, where he focuses on helping high-volume B2B SaaS CEOs define pricing and packaging for new products. Dan takes us through how businesses can focus on the outcomes that the customer is trying to achieve and how they define success.
Learn how to put the customer first, provide value, and define success from the lens of those you serve – the customers.
“We are not the center of our customer’s life. We need to understand the full journey. We need to ask, “What is our customer’s day to day like?” and “What are they trying to accomplish?”
“Companies get very enamored with the technology that they built and lose focus on the value that customers are getting out of it.”
“To be successful, businesses need to get a clear view of the value that they are providing based not only the metrics they use to define success, but also the metrics the customers are using to define success. It’s the customer’s definition of success that counts.”
