Advocacy Flywheel ... this is cool

Published 4 months ago • 1 min read

Most Heads of CS see advocacy as the finish line (if they even think about it at all, honestly).

The customer gives you a testimonial or leaves a review after they're received some value from your product and that's it.

But, in this week's episode of Impact Weekly, Johan and I talk about how World-class Heads of CS understand that advocacy isn't the end game, but rather a continuous cycle—what we call the "Advocacy Flywheel."

Advocacy fuels acquisition, which leads to more customers, who then become advocates, those customers increase their participation in advocacy activities, and repeat, creating a self-perpetuating loop of growth that you'd be foolish to ignore.

Listen to this week's episode here.

This episode is actually part 2 of 2... the conversation was so epic we had to split it into two episodes, so make sure you listen to last week's episode, too.

BTW: If you want to build your own Social Proof machine via the Advocacy Flywheel to consistently generate real advocates at scale, join our 2-week online intensive Advocacy training program that starts 27 November, 2023.

I'm super-excited to share that our newest training program at Impact Academy starts next Monday, 4-March, 2024 and it's all about Customer-centric Automations. Call it what you like - Digital CS , Tech Touch, Scale Motion - but the idea of leveraging technology and automations to improve CS efficiency has never been more timely. But you have to do it right. That's why we created this course for CS pros - from Heads of CS and CSMs, to Ops and Enablement. Learn more about the program and...
