Summary points:

Effective communication is the key component of any successful customer relationship.

In fact, 72% of business leaders believe that effective communication has also increased their team’s productivity.

So, it’s clear that customer communication is critical for the success of your business, but what exactly is it?

What is customer communication anyway?

It’s not just about conveying information; instead, communication is about building trust, setting expectations, and guiding your customers through their journey with your product or service.

However, despite your best intentions, making sure all your customer communication is high-quality and personalized can become increasingly difficult to manage as businesses scale.

This leads to inconsistent experiences for your customers and the potential for them to churn as a result.

Getting customer communication right doesn’t have to be complicated. With a little thought and structure around how you and your CSMs should converse with customers, it’ll transform not just your communication approach – but also the amount of time it takes to achieve even better results.

With the right tools in place (such as CSP technology) to support you with your customer communication improvement initiatives, you can expect to see a number of time-saving benefits, like:

✅Centralized communication
✅ Automated messaging
✅ Real-time notifications
✅ Customer surveys
✅ 360° view of the customer

On the other hand, though, persisting with an unstructured approach to customer communication and failing to leverage tools to help will result in you and your CSMs facing an avalanche of time-sapping, morale-draining issues, like:

❌ Fragmented communication
❌ Labour-intensive messaging
❌ Reactive issue-response
❌ Chasing customers for feedback
❌ Juggling data from multiple sources

To combat these issues and enjoy the benefits of enhanced levels of customer communication, you should take the time to consider how a customer success platform (CSP) – such as Custify – can help transform both your comms processes and your entire customer journey.

What can you expect from this mini-guide to customer comms?

Here at Custify, we’ve devised this mini-guide to ensure that by the time you’ve finished reading it, you’ll be clear on exactly how to overcome customer communication issues by leveraging CSP technology.

As soon as you open up the eBook, you’ll quickly get clarity on 5 key issues that we’ve identified as being both problematic and time-consuming when it comes to customer communication.

These include:

How fragmented communication not only makes your teams’ jobs more difficult but also causes irreparable damage to the experience for customers.

How manually messaging your customers is a highly ineffective use of your CSMs’ time and suggestions on how to free them up to add more value to customers.

How reactive responses to issues and milestones can slowly erode your relationship with your customers – and how to avoid it.

How chasing customers for feedback can become something of a fool’s errand without help and support from automated processes.

Our customer communication mini-guide then helps to address these issues by identifying solutions you can implement by using a customer success platform to do the ‘heavy lifting’ for you.

As if that wasn’t enough, once you implement some of our suggestions, your CSMs will be able to claim back hours of time from ‘busy work’ each week, so they can focus their time on ‘moving the needle’ for their customers instead.

Get Expert Perspectives

This mini-guide on customer communication has been written as one part of a series purposefully crafted for Customer Success professionals. But don’t just take our word for it, we’ve also included expert insights from fellow CS pros and influencers, including:

We’ve done this so that between the expert insights we’ve uncovered and the in-depth information we’ve added to this ‘Customer Communication’ mini-guide, you’ll and your team will be armed with everything you need to tackle customer communication issues head on.

Why you should download our eBook

These days, CSMs aren’t just ‘churn busters’ – they’re responsible for everything from product adoption to customer retention and even revenue expansion.

However, there are only so many hours in a day, and the risk is that without proper systems and processes in place, CSMs won’t be able to meet all their objectives.

This will result in burned-out and underperforming CSMs, higher than-forecast levels of churn, and significant reductions in growth through expansion revenue.

It doesn’t have to be this way, though.

Our mini-guide to improving customer communication – the latest in a 6-part series that covers the entire customer journey – gives you everything you need to radically improve the situation both for your CSMs and your customers.

The eBook goes step by step into how you can use a CSP like Custify – one of Europe’s leading customer success platforms – to overhaul customer communication, improve customer satisfaction, and reduce customer churn.
