Get Gifting With Our Customer Success Quickstart (+ Templates!)

Just in time for the holidays! Jumpstart your customer success gifting campaigns with email templates from our Customer Success QuickStart Module!
Corporate Gifting Platforms — What you need to know before you buy.

Gifting – it’s a significant (and often integral) part of demand generation campaigns and sales plays, but what about after you’ve won the customer? It shouldn’t stop there.

Build Relationships, Retain Customers

Think about how you feel when you post about a promotion on LinkedIn or mention a wedding or new baby in your out-of-office message. Typically, people respond positively, with “Congrats!” comments and messages pouring in. Feels pretty good, right?

What if you could provide that same feeling for your customers? Letting them know that you’re actively engaged and paying attention to what’s going on in their lives, both 9-5 and #5to9™, can go a long way to building lasting relationships and boosting your retention efforts. In fact, companies that invest in corporate gifting for current customers have a 37% higher retention rate.

Here at Alyce, we’re all about making gifting easier so you can get campaigns out the door quickly and start seeing results. Just in time for the holiday season, we’ve launched our Customer Success QuickStart solution complete with gift bundles, curated marketplaces, and email templates so you can plug and play in no time.

Read through all the templates, or choose your own adventure:

As our gift to you, we’re sharing these email templates for eight different use cases across the Customer Success lifecycle.
