Story of a company who raised $28 Million!

One secret to have a customer base which always grows YOY and attracts funding!

#Skillshare, the online learning platform, attracted $28 million in series C In 2018.

100% revenue growth due to a user base which was growing & contributing despite being in an extremely competitive industry played a vital role in series C.

I believe, the formula to have a healthy customer base = A + B + C

A =Getting New Customers

B = Retaining existing customers

C = Winning back “about to be churned customers”

In my consulting experience, I have observed that several businesses do the mistake of assuming “retention “and “win-back” to be one!

And hence implement a customer win-back strategy long after when a customer has already discontinued buying.

This is WRONG!

Instead, a customer win-back strategy should be implemented as soon as the servicing team identifies the signs of churn.

If you look around, the best win-back strategies are proactive and one step ahead of the customer intentions.

For example, Skillshare offers a special discount to re-buy the premium version to customer who are about to leave.

“Win-back” and “Retention” strategies need to be treated as two separate animals.
