  1. 1. Unit-2 Concept of CRM
  2. 2. Concept of Customer Lifecycle o In customer relationship management (CRM), customer life cycle is a term used to describe the progression of steps a customer goes through when considering, purchasing, using, and maintaining loyalty to a product or service. o The Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) is a prediction of the total value (mostly expressed in net profit) generated by a customer in the future across the entire customer life cycle. o It is simply the behavior of a customer with your company over time. Customers begin a relationship with you, and over time, either decide to continue this relationship, or end it. At any point in this LifeCycle, the customer is either becoming more or less likely to continue doing business with you, and demonstrates this likelihood through their interactions with you.

  4. 4.  Reach– Your content must be properly marketed in places where people/businesses in your market will find your information. This way they will become aware of your company’s existence.  Acquire– You have to understand your potential customers wants/needs so you can provide a product/service they will want to purchase. Contact them directly with personalized communication in order to convert them from potential leads to paying customers.  Develop– After the first purchase, keep in touch and build a relationship with your customer. Ensure they are fully satisfied with their purchase.  Retain– One time customers will become repeat customers as long as you are satisfying their needs. Care for them and continue to cultivate a relationship with them. Do not be afraid to ask for feedback. They will be happy you care about their opinion and you can use their comments to improve your product/services. Make them feel a part of the process.  Inspire– If your customers are truly satisfied, they will become brand advocates. This will spread awareness within their social circles and the cycle will come full cycle when you reach potential new customers due to your existing customers.
  5. 5. Customer Lifecycle Management o Customer Lifecycle Management (CLM) is simply the measurement of your CRM program's success over time - providing you have CLM metrics from before and after your CRM implementation. o CLM (Customer Lifecycle Management)however is a static entity, and is more based upon a single measurement (which incorporates multiple metrics) than a philosophy. Without practicing CRM whatsoever, a company can take various measurements of its customer lifecycles and find ways to improve, or 'manage' them better. o Customer Lifecycle Management has the potential to turn your business on it’s head, focusing on customer needs first, and delivering profits for the long term.

  9. 9. Customer Product Profitability Analysis  A customer profitability analysis is an evaluation process that focuses on assigning costs and revenues to segments of the customer base, instead of assigning revenues and costs to the actual products, or the units or departments that compose the corporate structure of the producer.  According to Philip Kotler, “A profitable customer is a person, household or a company that overtime, yields a revenue stream that exceeds by an acceptable amount the company's cost stream of attracting, selling and servicing the customer“.

Each cell contains a symbol for the profitability of selling that products to that customer. • Customer1 is very profitable : he buys three profit making products(P1,P2,and P4). • Customer 2 yields a picture of mixed profitability :he buys one profitable product and one unprofitable product. • Customer 3 is a losing customer because he buys one profitable product and two unprofitable products. • What can the company do about customers 2 and 3? 1) It can raise the price of its less profitable products or eliminate them , or 2) It can try to sell them its profit making products.
