Customer Success vs. Marketing

Join us for the next Customer Success Meetup event. 

This event will be hosted by community members Chad Horenfeldt and Julie Persofsky from Influitive.

Customer Success vs. Marketing: The new B2B alignment battle

The battle between customer success and marketing is relatively new to B2B organizations as the customer success department is a more recent development and these two groups typically had separate goals. Times have changed. Many marketing organizations are charged with marketing through the entire customer lifecycle and that’s when these two groups started to bump heads regularly. We'll cover how these two groups need each other and how they can work together to achieve amazing results.
