Designing Your Customer Acquisition Path

February 2 @ 18:00 - 19:00 CST

Learn how to design a repeatable process that acquires loyal customers with Zeenath Kuraisha, Founder and CEO of APACSMA.

When a customer has a need, they don’t just want it met; they want to find others who understand their pain points and are committed to developing solutions with the human in mind. To do this, startups need to possess micro- and macro-level understanding in order to design winning solutions for their customers. This means winning the trust of the customer to the point where they entrust the startup with their solution requirements and how to help them throughout the journey of purchase. What can startups do to gain the complete trust of customers over other organizations offering similar solutions?

In celebration of women-owned businesses, please join us for a compelling conversation with Zeenath Kuraisha, Founder and CEO of APACSMA, and Paloma Vidgen, SME Segment Leader – Women Entrepreneurs, Vice President at Bank of the West, to learn more about how your business can develop a holistic sales process that attracts and retains highly valued customers and partners through knowledge and trust.
