The Lifetime Value (LTV) of your customer is the average amount of money your customers will spend on your products or services over their lifetime (or while they were your customer).

This is the most important metric in business because it helps you determine how much money to spend in acquiring new customers or retaining existing ones. Moreover, it will also help you in budgeting and planning your sales/marketing strategies.

Here is a practical example, let’s assume you own a gym and customers on average stay with your gym for at least 12 months. If your membership fee is $40, then your LTV is $480. For simplicity, let’s assume your profit margin is 50%; this implies that you can spend up to $240 to acquire a new customer.

Step #1

The first step in every sales process is to Get the Attention of your prospect (via an Ad or referral)

Step #2

The next step is to present he or she with the Right Offer. If you have the wrong offer the sale process will end abruptly. Thus, it is extremely important that your offer is based on your prospects needs or pain; never make an offer based on what you think your prospects will like. See GEM #1

Step #3

So, you’ve gotten their attention, you have presented them with the right offer, the next thing you need to do is to address their Objections and Reverse the Risk. This will help you remove any doubts or skepticism at the back of their mind. To reverse the risk, all you need to do is offer full or partial refund, if your product or service does not live up to their expectation or as advertised.

Step #4

Lastly, Ask for the Sale. As obvious as this may sound lots of businesses fail to do so in their promotions/Ads. Likewise, there are many salesmen that unconsciously omit this step during their sales pitch. If you find yourself in any of these categories, rectify your Ad or pitch immediately by simply adding “Order Now”, “Call Now to Place an Order”, “Call Now for your FREE Quote”, “Buy Now”, etc. If it is an in-person sales presentation simply ask “how would you like to pay, with check or credit card?”

Believe it or not, this is all it takes to make a sale in most cases. If you are selling a high ticket item addition steps may be required.
