Maximize LTV this summer

Published 8 days ago • 1 min read

This time of year Europe goes on summer vacation.

So we put Impact Academy Premium Live trainings on hiatus starting in July for a couple of months and my clients in Sweden, Denmark, and Portugal pause our engagements.

But, this means I have availability to help you this summer.

While I can help with all things Customer Success, my areas of specialization (and particular interest) are:

  • Onboarding (and Trial Engagement - Sales Assist motion)
  • Customer Engagement (Automation, Lifecycle Messaging)
  • Expansion (Customer-centric Upsells!)

Just reply with what you're looking for help with specifically, information about your company and customers, why now is the right time to focus on this, etc. and my assistant Joanna will get back to you.

Talk soon!

~ Lincoln

BTW: We still have one more Premium Live training program at Impact Academy before the summer break and that's our Customer Advocacy program that starts next Monday, June 10, 2024.

Learn more about the program and sign-up here.

We focus on the differences between Proactive and Reactive Retention, how to move from the latter to the former through better prioritization, orchestration, and directing limited resources to higher-percentage activities. This program is practical in every sense of the word. Our Impact Academy programs are a...

“My CSMs are too busy to do Advocacy, Lincoln.” “So pile even more onto my overworked CSMs? Umm, No.” I’ve heard the same for Expansion, Renewal, etc. Weird how their CSMs are too busy to do things like Advocacy or Expansion but not too busy to: Do the work for the customer Work escalated support tickets Train individual users Answer the same questions over and over Have meetings when they’re not necessary Have super-inefficient meetings And so much more nonsense Saying their CSMs are "too...
