This is part 1 of 5 in our Definitive Cybersecurity Champion Tracking Guide. You can find parts 1-5 here.
Your alumni customers - or Gems as we prefer to call them - offer you a warm path into target accounts and make it easy to generate high-converting pipeline. And we’ve got the data to back this point up.
Data from our Hidden Gems series show involving your past customers in new deals leads to:
- 2X higher win rates (114% higher)
- 54% bigger deal sizes
- 12% shorter sales cycles
But with 20% of people switching jobs every year, manually tracking champions and your past buyers can be time-consuming. It not only takes a toll on your sales teams’ productivity. But you also run the risk of losing out on qualified opportunities.
Mimecast, a cloud cybersecurity software provider, is no stranger to manually tracking its champions. Here’s Kory Himmer, Director of Marketing Analytics, on manually tracking champions:
“Before UserGems, our internal processes were often dependent on individual Marketers, BDRs, and Sales logging info in Salesforce. There was no incentive to do data or CRM clean-up. Linking the past and new records was impossible, our manual, clunky and tedious process just couldn’t do that.”
Automating customer job tracking with UserGems helped them to:
📈 Find the right people at the right time, at scale
📈 Improve team motivation and efficiency.
Clare Corriveau agrees with Kory Himmer:
Track customers, generate predictable pipeline
