Customer Lifetime Value
CLV or Customer Lifetime Value is a seriously important metric. But it does take some work to figure out. Not Sheldon Cooper level work, but still. In case you didn’t know before, here’s Hubspot with a break down of the CLV equation.
- Calculate average purchase value: Divide your company’s total revenue in a time period (usually one year) by the number of purchases over the course of that same time period.
- Calculate average purchase frequency rate: Divide the number of purchases by the number of unique customers who made purchases during that time period.
- Calculate customer value: Multiply the average purchase value by the average purchase frequency rate.
- Calculate average customer lifespan: Average the number of years a customer continues purchasing from your company.
- Calculate CLV: multiply customer value by the average customer lifespan.
