The Post-Purchase Support Funnel Toolkit

Let's look at how the post-purchase support funnel works for your company now that you know how it works.
To assist you keep track of the many sorts of support tickets, we created this worksheet to make it simple for you to manage them quickly and personally. Here's a sneak peek at the completed worksheet.
We realize that each sort of company is unique, as well as your customers' wants. You may quickly customize the worksheet to best fit your team by following these five simple steps:
1. First make a copy of the worksheet.
This is just one approach to deal with a wide range of client queries. It's a good place to start, but be sure to adapt it to your clients' demands and the technology you have in your tech stack.
2. Select a tiger team to create the worksheet
Ideally, this will be a group of team members who know your clients' needs well and are eager to advance their careers.
3. Build your FAQ
Collect information on the most frequent queries that your clients have. If you're not sure, check out your most recent voice of customer report.
4.Fill in the boxes next to each question for every client inquiry.
You’ll answer these questions:
• Is it a common question?
•Is it difficult? It's worth noting that difficult queries are those that are emotionally charged, demand advanced problem-solving abilities, and have high-priority discussions.
• Where does it belong in the funnel? If in doubt, section 2 of this guide will help you figure this out.
• What tactic should you use? Again, section 2 of this guide will help you choose the perfect tactic to address each question in the most efficient, personal way.
• What are your success metrics?
Finally, once you’ve approved the worksheet, you’re ready to implement your Post-Purchase Support Funnel. Don't forget to let management know how well the funnel is working. They'll be particularly interested to hear about how your support staff is improving customer loyalty and retention, as well as any efficiency gains.
