Account-Based Expansions

Expansion revenue costs one-quarter as expensive as net new revenue.

Price Intelligently has shown that on average new revenue costs $1.13 vs. $.27 for customer expansion. And, according to the Sales Funnel Strategist, 91% of customers are interested in repurchasing from brands that remember them.  The challenge with customer expansion is the alignment of playbooks and processes across your sales, account management, and customer success teams.

Account-Based Expansion
Insights and Expertise

Holistic ABM

The growing importance of hyper-personalized buyer experiences in B2B companies makes the role of account-based marketing increasingly important. So a strategic shift that connects marketing, sales, account management, and customer success is needed to improve revenue growth and streamline the buyer journey.

Land with Your Endgame in Mind 

The key to expanding much faster and more effectively is to think of prospecting campaigns as part of your business objectives. Even if the first deal is small at first, you will already have a clear path to expand more easily in the future.

Sample Plays

Team Performance

Mutual Success Plan 

A Mutual Success Plan captures and prioritizes a buyer’s goals to help Sales close faster around top priorities and set up Customer Success to renew and expand around all of a customer’s potential goals.  It keeps Sales and CS all working from the same information.

Team Performance

Expansion Discovery

Expansion discovery is different from sales discovery.  It should always start with “success to date” to suggest and introduce expansion opportunities.  The best expansion discovery also uses social proof and expansion hooks.

Team Performance

Authentic Account Plans

A traditional account plan considers your customer’s goals as one of several important elements of identifying expansion opportunities. In an authentic account plan, by contrast, the customer’s goals and the relationship network around those goals anchor all other elements of the plan.

Success Story

“Our Winalytics partnership made value-driven prospecting, selling, and account expansion a reality.  The first shift was from a focus on our product to a focus on how our product drives value for individual buyers, and for enterprise as a whole. Then we built a skills development program to get everyone ‘singing from the same hymnal’ on this value-based approach.“
