Turn Support From A Cost Center To A Profit Center

Where customer service fits in a company’s balance sheet is an interesting question. A profit center is typically a key factor in a company’s success since it can generate revenue and profit.

Start Lowering Your Customer Churn Rate Today

32% of the leaders of the biggest companies in the world don’t know their company’s churn rate. That’s millions of customers and trillions of dollars being lost every year that could have been preventable. This might not materially dent the finances of those big companies, but customer churn must be addressed for most companies.

Every business faces customer churn, as it is unlikely that all customers will stay with one company forever. But not trying to keep customers will fester into more significant problems eventually. It is also far simpler and less expensive to keep current customers than to acquire new ones. One Harvard Business Review article says that acquiring a new customer is actually anywhere from 5 to 25 times more expensive than retaining an existing one. And it is even less costly to persuade them to stay than to get one to return. The true cost of customer loss includes direct costs, acquisition costs, social costs, and operational costs. All these costs add up quickly against your financials and brand. So understanding and preventing customer churn is essential for a healthy business.

Customer Retention Strategies For Practical Profitability

Customer retention is the percentage of customers who stick with a company over a specific amount of time. This is the opposite of the churn rate, which is how many people leave in a period of time. For businesses looking to navigate through difficult times, turning to keep current customers may have a bigger impact on the bottom line than finding new customers.

Other researchers found the cost of acquiring new consumers can be 5 to 25 times costlier than retaining existing customers. In addition, capturing new customers is only successful 5-20% of the time.

The Why, What, And How of Customer Lifetime Value

Why should you care about Customer Lifetime Value (CLTV)?

The simple answer is profits! A Harvard Business School research report found that increasing customer retention rates by 5% increases profits by 25% to 95%. Customer retention helps businesses recoup the investment they make when acquiring customers. Anything beyond the initial purchase is extra sales at typically higher profit margins.
