February 2, 2024

Happy Groundhog day (US and Canada)! According to Punxsutawney Phil, we are in for an early spring! As a couple of new storms prepare to roll into Colorado, I will believe it when I see it 😁.

As far as Gain Grow Retain goes, I am very excited about what is coming. We just launched our closed CS Leaders group, and have started an impressive line up of Office Hours hosts and blog content. And there is more we are planning, so hold onto your hats!

Gain Grow Retain continues to focus on Events, Best Practices, and Content that inspires, and this weekly wrap up helps make sure you are in the know.

Things Customers Say On Their Way to Cancelling - AI Data

@BenB kicked off a great brainstorming conversation about using customer conversations to identify potential early warning signs that churn may be on the horizon. Share your experience with the statements customers often use that signal a problem!

Feedback Surveys

Have some thoughts about feedback surveys that bring actual value to customer insights? @Alice_Schofield is looking for some examples and thoughts about making this successful.

Where are your customer references?

We all know how valuable customer references are, but @Ryan HL is looking for examples of how others are maintaining a database to prevent overuse of a handleful of customers . Are you incentivising your process for utilizing and identifying customers for your program? Share your experience and thoughts!


📃 GGR Blog - How to Use Small Customer Insights to Get Large Customer Retention Wins

💹 GGR CS Leadership Office Hours Summary - Navigating Change Management

Last week, Arjun Menon led the conversation around the importance of helping your customers adapt to change. Some great conversations followed with participants first identifying the areas that need to have a strategy for supporting change. Such as layoffs, tech roadblocks, and lack of growth and adoption. Groups then talked about how to help move customers through these situations successfully, sharing insights and opportunities.


Check out the stats on our GGR community for 2023!

(here is a small glimpse)

Does GGR need an "Introduce Yourself" thread?

With GGR gaining new members every month (we average close to 150 a month!), it got me thinking...do we need an 'Introduce yourself' thread where folks can go in and share some information about who they are and why they joined? Take a moment to share your thoughts in a poll. You can vote and then share more info in the comments. Would love to hear from you!

Now Launched! CS Leaders Group

Are you a CS Leader who has been missing the ability to connect directly with other leaders? GGR hears you and wants to help. In this new group, members are vetted before being allowed to join, ensuring that you 1) know that you are talking directly to peers, and 2) have conversations that are not part of the entire GGR membership (your conversations are private!)

If this is something that you would benefit from, take a moment to fill out a quick form so we can review your request and get you in this private area within GGR! Access the form here

Our Leadership Office Hours are a great way to start the conversation, and the good news is, you are spending just a few minutes introducing it to kick off the conversation. Sound interesting?
