When it comes to growing SaaS companies, most people are following a traditional, top-down approach and using demo requests as the main way of qualifying new business.

What separates the top 1% from the bottom 99%?

Retention.

For SaaS companies, the term “growth” often means acquiring new customers, doing biz dev, and building out a sales and marketing team. But what about the customers you’ve already attracted?

This course will teach you how to define and identify retention points for your customer base, how to slow down or flatten churn, and how to improve retention long term.

This course is right for you if…

  • You want to find ways to grow your MRR without hiring a sales team.
  • You measure customer churn rates as a KPI for your role.
  • You have struggled identifying retention blindspots in your overall customer experience.

This course is NOT for you if…

  • Your churn rate is at a number that doesn’t concern you in the slightest.
  • You think the only key to growth is new customer acquisition.
  • You can’t influence the relationship your brand has with your customers

Skills you should have before taking this course:

This course is suitable for everyone, but it helps if you have:

  • A working knowledge of your current churn rate.
  • The ability to impact the customer experience (through email, app-based UX, collecting data via surveys, etc.).
  • A basic understanding of how churn affects a business focused on monthly recurring revenue.

About your instructor:
Val Geisler

Val has been obsessed with customer experience since her high school cashier job at the local Target store. From retail to events and now software, Val has seen it all: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

As an email marketing strategist, Val combines her background in customer experience, content creation, and digital strategy. Nothing brings her more happiness than helping businesses unblock the way they connect with their customers.

Why we hand-selected Val to teach this course

I’ve been known for referring to Val as ’email royalty’, and that’s because there is almost no one I trust more with my SaaS clients’ email and customer onboarding experience than her.

Georgiana Laudi, co-founder, Forget the Funnel

The impact of Val’s work goes beyond the positive trends in conversion we’re seeing. Getting responses from our customers telling us that we have the most personal emails they’ve ever seen (this actually happened, and more than once) helps give us a powerful advantage in a very competitive space.
