Empowering B2B Growth with Client-Centric Strategies

Growth is not an option but an imperative now. Digitization & globalization has spurred competition in every sector and so clients have become very demanding. Client churn has become very common now.

And many B2B organizations are struggling to unlock the full growth potential of their existing accounts, in spite of a lot of effort and good will. Organizations compensate for this loss by adding new accounts. Unfortunately, having a large client base with small revenue contribution from each only complicates the matter for B2B organizations. In fact, they create long-term stress in the system.

Growth can mean different things to you : YoY revenue growth, increasing EBITDA margin, increasing client base, increasing revenue from key accounts, increasing sales win rates, low customer churn, etc.

How can organizations unlock the full growth potential of their existing accounts?

True assets of any company are not the items in balance sheet, but it is the company’s clients. Businesses exist because of their clients and they grow by leveraging their ‘clients’.

Here’s a simple secret to achieve a stellar business growth. Immaterial of sector, help clients’ succeed, and organizations will automatically succeed in their business. This is the only sure shot way to achieve consistent growth.

Is this practically possible in today’s world? If so, is there a definitive way to achieve this? 

Yes, is is very much possible.

First, move from the tag of a ‘Vendor” to a “Preferred vendor” by consistently delivered on promised value by addressing core client experience issues. Next enhance the performance on deliverables that matter the most to the clients. This will deliver enhanced value to their clients. Last step is to move into orbit of client intimacy where the client sees them as strategic partner. More details of this 3 step process is covered in the book “The Client Centric Protagonist”.

This is where we come in. We help organizations create a workable strategy to grow existing accounts and support in implementing it. This strategy, where the growth is achieved by placing client needs at the center, is also called as Client Led Growth Strategy.
