About Us

Building a consistent customer success practice is something I believe differentiates a growing company from a thriving company and that customer advocacy isn't only about building attitudinal loyalty, it's about doing the right thing for your customer in order for them to meet or exceed their desired outcome. Hi, I'm Tom Connery. Talking Customer Success was created to promote the value of customer success within the enterprise and small business.

Customer Success Management Is Not For Everyone

In this episode, I share a few truths as to how and why being a CSM may not be the right job for you. None of this insight includes survey data, feedback from other CSMs, none of that. It’s just me being honest about the last four years or so based on what I’ve seen and experienced.Like what you hear? Please consider sharing this episode or podcast with a friend or colleague.

Download FREE Customer Success Manager (CSM) Templates

As I worked as a CSM, I discovered that each company had their own processes, reports, and templates or lack thereof. We can't assume that every customer success manager is well prepared for their weekly, monthly, and quarterly checkpoints. I thought I would give away a set of weekly, monthly, and quarterly customer review templates that I created in the hope that they may benefit other CSMs. Visit https://bit.ly/2GbbDQ9 to download these free templates today.

Customer Success Management Consultation Using Clarity.fm

Just recently I conducted my first clarity.fm premium call in regard to customer success. Clarity.fm is a phone service that allows you to speak directly to SME's for an hourly or by the minute fee. A business coach was taking on a new client in the CSM space and messaged me about providing them an overview of what customer success is. We went on for just over an hour, and although the call wasn't recorded, I wanted to share much of the same content we discussed in this episode in case it could benefit someone else. If you are also interested in a professional consultation, I've setup a special offer for FREE calls but there are only three uses available! If you'd like to chat with me about customer success management, act now before I change the link! https://clarity.fm/thomasconnery/csmchat --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/talkingcustomersuccess/message Support this p...

One Idea To Inspire User Adoption

How Customer Success Could Save Your Business

Can Customer Success Help Your Org Stand Out From The Rest? 100% Yes! Customer success as a practice, when done properly, can have a massive influence on product or service consumption and usage. Given the trend of minimalism, good old-fashioned cost cutting, and market recession fears, there couldn’t be a better time to double down on customer success as a formal practice in your business. For me, that’s primarily been software, but for you it may not be. All I know is that if you sell a business to business (B2B) product or service, the days of handing over the product or service and wishing the customer good luck is over. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/talkingcustomersuccess/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/talkingcustomersuccess/support
