A note from the founder of TheCustomerSuccessNewsletter.com...
"What do I think is the most critical thing in Customer Success as a new customer journey starts?
Nailing the handoff.
As a prospect transitions to a customer, it's your first opportunity to demonstrate you understand the outcome they are trying to achieve with your service. While seemingly simple, it's probably the most common issue that leads to low engagement and churn, as well as affects the relationship between Sales and CS
This is a fitting topic for this issue as I've decided to handoff The Customer Success Newsletter. It's been a project close to my heart for a long time, and I'm happy to announce that the Vitally team will be steering the ship from here on out. I wanted to make sure I found the right partner to continue to provide value to you all and I'm excited with Vitally's vision of what comes next.
I'll still be involved in an editorial capacity with my thoughts on the different themes in each issue (can't get rid of me that easily).
I wanted to say thank you to everyone who's subscribed and I look forward to continuing to learn more about delivering great Customer Success!
