Customer Retention & CLTV

“Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.” — Bill Gates

Your Opportunities

Are you facing any of these common situations? Looking for better answers to monetize more of the value you create?

Customer Retention & Pricing are the “bookends” to CLTV. All too often problems in Pricing lead to poor Customer Retention, and vice-versa. But even if all Pricing levers are world class, customer churn and dissatisfaction can quickly become the pits dragging your profitability into a down spiral. In many cases, customer retention can be intrinsically linked to your pricing strategy. In other cases, variables “external” to pricing may drive your observed outcomes, with pricing serving as a compounding element. Churn, loss of wallet share, or high-cost-to-serve customers erode profitability so quickly, you cannot afford to be reactive.

Customer Retention & CLTV are the levers other than pricing that can increase your CLTV and by extension your profitability and value creation. We deploy powerful analytical tools and the latest frameworks from behavioral economics and customer insights, to craft retention strategies that protect CLTV and compound your Pricing gains to deliver powerful ROI to your bottom line.
