They may even represent a loss of revenue. Marketers can choose to deactivate them or continue coverage if they offer higher future value Small Customers

  19. Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) • Customer lifetime value is the net profit earned from sales to a given customer during the time that customer purchases from the sales organization • CLV, as a sales focus, is about how the customer is treated over time • Lifetime value is a measure of customer loyalty

  23. CLV (The Approach) Life Span of Customer Recurring Costs Cumulative Margin Lifetime Value Net Margin Acquisition Cost Recurring Revenues

  24. Understanding the“Lifetime” Part of CLV • Comparing ROI to CLV • Return on Investment (ROI) represents a way to measure the immediate result of any sales effort • CLV uses relationship capital to assess the long-termvalue of the customer

  25. Over the long-term, customer retention occurs when salespeople make offers and the customer accepts those offers over time
