1. Definition of “Customer Lifetime Value”

In easy words, the Customer Lifetime Value (CLTV) can be defined as the value a customer generates during their time as customer 
of a company. 

To calculate the CLTV of your agency, you can use the following formula:

Summary of Roles in Client Development: 

  • It is important to think of all the roles and responsibilities in the client development sprint
  • Differentiate between clients that can be developed and clients that can not be developed
  • Define communication levels according to development potential of your clients 
  • Assign roles and templates that are used within each client development meeting 

3. Agile retrospectives with clients

We propose five steps to develop a strategic roadmap with your clients:

1. Marketing Strategy & Customer Journey:

a) Discuss with your clients how they want to develop their market in 2021 

b) Define an individual customer journey with your clients to understand the          interdependencies of marketing & sales. Furthermore, define the re-purchasing cycle of your clients and derive the logic of retention vs. lifespan

c) Analyse your clients’ current customer base and derive their Recency, Frequency & Monetary Model (RFM)

2. Value Case & Strategic Roadmap: 

a) Define a value case on basis of your clients’ individual needs

b) Define objectives with real numbers to reach the value case

c) Calculate business targets to reach

3. Media Mix: 

a) Align on how to allocate the required budget among different media channels 

b) Attribute your budgets according to your marketing channels

c) Define the See-Think-Do-Care funnel with your clients in a service map

4. Seasonal Campaigns:

a) Define the seasonal campaigns with your clients to push sales & increase basket value

b) Define your audience targeting for each of the campaigns and also the format video, display, text or audio

c) Discuss how a technology stack can be built that allows sequencing and optimisation of first party data

5. Operational KPIs:

Align on your operational KPIs to measure to see how to increase their performance
