  • Customer Acquisition vs Customer Development www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • How does a customer define you?
    • Customers buy from you because
      • You provide a product or service they want at a point in time
      • At a price they consider realistic
      • With a service that they find acceptable
      • And because they trust you (or at least don’t distrust you)
    • Generally they won’t buy from you any more if any one of these elements is no longer true

  • Defining ‘a customer’
    • ‘ How you define ‘customer’ in your business depends on a variety of factors
    • Such as:
      • Cost of recruitment
      • AOV
      • Purchase frequency
      • Lifetime value
      • Contact cost
    • Final analysis – it’s all down to profitability
    www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Developing customers www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Developing customers
    • You’ve just spent money on acquiring a customer
    • What do you do next?
    www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Developing customers
    • How do you ‘tempt’ customers to buy more?
    • How do you decide which customers are most likely to buy?
    • How do you decide on the most appropriate temptation(s)?
    • How do you decide how much to spend and when?
    www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Developing customers
    • The big advantages of marketing to customers are:
      • You know who they are
      • You know what they bought
      • You may know what triggered the purchase
      • You certainly know the channel they chose to buy it through
    • Developing customers is about using, and building on, this information to drive sales through a planned contact strategy
    www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Developing customers
    • Who’s going to give the best return?
    • Most common modelling is RFM
      • Recency
      • Frequency
      • Monetary
    • More complex modelling can refine this - but get the basics right first.
    www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Segmentation & RFM www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Segmentation
    • You’d like to treat every customer as an individual..
    • … .. but you can’t
    • So segmentation is a way of identifying groups of customers with similar behaviours
    • Typically the strongest indicators of customer performance are
      • How recently they bought
      • How often they’ve bought
      • How much they’ve spent
    www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Segmenting your customers www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Segmenting your customers www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
    • Which groups contribute most - and least
  • Segmenting your customers www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
    • And how many customers in each?
    95% of profitable customers?

  • Optimising performance www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Optimising customer performance
    • For the vast majority of your customer base basic analysis tools will work fine.
      • RFM analysis
      • Source of initial order
      • Possibly initial product category
    • This will identify both
      • Your existing ‘best’ customers
      • Those customer types which provide the best potential lifetime value and thus the ones you want to target and encourage
    • Once you’ve got this data and acted on it you could look at more sophisticated modelling – it will fine tune the boundaries but is unlikely to change the general approach
    www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk www.ivantage.co.uk
  • Optimising customer performance RFM www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
    • Monitor the structure of your database
    • If the numbers in the top left are rising you’re winning
  • Optimising customer performance RFM www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
    • RFM would lead you to focus on the top left hand
    • More sophisticated modelling, such as regression analysis, might find subgroups to rule in or out linked to other variables
    • But this is more likely to impact the yellow areas than any other
  • Optimising customer performance Retention www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Optimising customer performance Retention www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk Retention is critical – the more customers you can get to reorder – profitably, of course – the fewer you have to recruit or the faster you can grow

  • Optimising customer performance Modelling your business www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Data & Testing www.sterlingmarketing.co.uk
  • Data & Testing
    • Data is key to understanding and managing costs and performance
      • Collection
      • Structuring
      • Analysis
      • Reporting
    • Testing is critical to decide what works better (and best)
      • There is no right answer
      • Customers’ behaviour changes in response to what you, your competitors and the outside world does to them
    • Without accurate collection and correct structuring of data
      • Testing is increasingly difficult
      • Results are inaccurate
      • Grey areas become more, rather than less, murky
