Congratulations! Through blood, sweat, and maybe even a few tears, you’ve acquired a new customer. Chances are, you’ve invested a good amount of time and money to do so. What you may not realize is that on average, it takes just over three years to recoup the initial cost to acquire and get to profitability with that customer.
With this in mind, you’ll want to make sure you take good care of that customer, nurture the relationship and demonstrate your ongoing value. By developing an effective Customer Lifecycle Management strategy, you will create happy and loyal customers, accelerate your time to profitability, and reap the high revenue potential from your install base.
