Brands need to understand LTV and profitable LTV, what a great customer looks like - commonalities around acquisition channel(s) and products bought. This also needs to be considered across geographical territories. Businesses that do this; that understand who the great clients are and the value to their businesses will really prosper in 2020 and beyond. They will know where to invest, why and the returns it will bring.
Utilising this data insight, businesses will be smarter in their email marketing, using the ’show me that you know me’ mentality; putting relevant product(s) in front of them, whilst building loyalty and value. It will also help to understand where and when to engage with these customers - email, social etc.
