PHASE 8: ADVOCACY PROCESS

Leverage your successful relationships to generate references and referrals both inside the account and to other accounts to grow revenue.

 

Customers who achieve their desired outcomes are likely to be a reference (they will tell other customers about their success) or a referral (they will proactively introduce you to their peers). A process which allows you to create this at scale can lead to transformative growth.
