When customers purchase your product, it’s imperative to give them the necessary support tools to be successful. SmartBear saw an opportunity to improve customer retention for one of its very technical products. The company offered free customer education and training via webinars to address the issue. In the development of the program, Christina Lowe and Dana Rogozenski analyzed the content available and worked with others in the organization to align efforts. To promote the new program, newsletters were sent to past and present customers, in-product promotions were conducted, social media channels and community forums developed and more. The results were explosive. In this session, Christina and Dana outline exactly how they did it and bring the relationship between customer education, loyalty and customer retention to the forefront.

Currently at SmartBear, Christina Lowe builds programs to ensure users and customers are successful after purchasing the company’s software quality tools.
