Why You'll Love Meetingflow for Expansion Revenue
Driving land-and-expand, up-sell, and cross-sell with existing accounts is a hot topic. But driving great expansion revenue is no easy feat. It requires great collaboration and execution.
In this article, we'll tackle seven key challenges in driving expansion revenue. And we'll show you how Meetingflow can help your sales team overcome these hurdles and drive expansion revenue.
7 Land and Expand Challenges
1. Spotting opportunities: First off, Sales teams often need help finding expansion opportunities. It requires a deep understanding of the account and everyone involved - from customer success teams to sales, pro services, and exec sponsors - to be in sync. It's a bit of cat herding and can be time-consuming.
2. Training the troops: Second, ensuring your team has the right skills for up-selling and cross-selling is not easy. This can be especially challenging for customer success roles lacking commercial skills. Keeping up with ever-changing sales processes also means ongoing training and development.
3. Getting everyone on the same page: Aligning sales, customer success, and support teams can take time. Sometimes communication can break down in a telephone game, causing missed opportunities for account growth.
4. Juggling time: Managers must balance between chasing new business and expanding existing accounts while maintaining top-notch account management.
5. Tailoring your approach: Customizing sales strategies to suit each account's unique needs can be tricky and resource-intensive, making it hard to deliver on-point messaging consistently.
6. Goal-setting: Defining clear, measurable objectives and KPIs for account expansion initiatives can be tough when you have multiple sales motions at once - new logo, expansion, and customer success.
7. Keeping relationships healthy: Keeping customers happy is always job one. It can be a tricky balance when trying to achieve their goals, keep service quality high, and drive growth - all at the same time.
