This week, Brian Oblinger, strategic community consultant, shares some practical areas that community and scaled CS can work together to strengthen the customer experience and lighten the load of the CSM.

When community is focused on some specific ways to support your customers, everyone wins. So what are some ways that a community can impact your customer journey?

  • Better educated customers = increased enablement and time-to-value
  • Lower customer support costs = increased deflection and decreased cost-per-case
  • Happier customers = increased NPS and CSAT
  • More up-sells, cross-sells, and renewals = increased CLV
  • More stable revenue = increased MRR, ARR, and NRR

Each of these feed into each other, but starts with the ability to move from a reactive to a proactive support of your customers through community resources.
