Head of Customer Experience – London or New York

Pageant Media


This is a new and exciting role for the business, responsible for ensuring that throughout the sales, pre-renewals and renewals process, customers are experiencing the very best of Pageant Media’s brands; that the message is being communicated clearly and succinctly, that sales campaigns and collateral are compelling and effective, and that a deep understanding and articulation of the customer value proposition is continuously played back across & up front in the customer life cycle in order to deepen affinity with our brands and expand our membership base.

Typical areas to cover will include, but are not limited to:

Designing slick and consistent sales pitches and materials that tell a story, land the message and drive memberships, tailored for each step in the customer decision cycle.
Developing an effective communications approach and collateral for any new feature or product launches across the brands.
Developing and owning a dynamic sales enablement tool/repository where sales teams and managers can rapidly access up-to-date information to deliver on sales plans, including items such as standard pitch materials, competitor matrices, RoI calculators, case studies, and any other assets that drive effective sales execution.
As part of the above, working closely with sales team leads to build and own an up-to-date market and industry awareness library that educates sales teams with best-in-class industry and market knowledge.
Feeding in compelling content to increase the effectiveness of the lead generation process.
Developing a clean UX to maximise landing page conversion rates and working with product / content teams to ensure consistency with the product experience.
Working closely with sales operations to measure, evaluate and act upon sales effectiveness results at each step of the sales cycle, whilst also feeding through any product feedback.
Position each brand’s messaging and look & feel to resonate with customers.
Where necessary, build each brand in such a way as to generate a baseline level of affiliation, knowledge and understanding — helping the efficiency of the lead generation process.
Feed engaging customer success stories back into the top of the funnel to fuel the lead generation and sales processes, working closely with the customer success function.
Facilitate the community (on top of the usual events) to develop a network of advocates who can help drive increases in memberships & renewals / expansions of memberships.
Work with the product, content and other relevant teams to make sure our members receive great value for money and providing customers with a quality experience from their first brand interactions as non-members through to paying membership and re-subscription.
