Activity– level as a link between customer retention and consumer lifetime value
Customer activity has received more attention due to the increase of social network applications. Moreover, customer activity could be an answer to the research debate about the significant relationship between retention rate and lifetime profitability of customers. Several researchers believe that an increase in the retention rate of customers may enhance their customer lifetime value (CLV), or their lifetime profitability. Other researchers believe that this relationship does not exist or is not significant, and retention rate alone cannot adequately explain lifetime value. This study aims to tackle this challenge and empirically examines the relationship between retention rate and CLV. Moreover, it investigates whether the activity level of customers increases the relationship between retention rate and CLV. This research has been empirically verified in the banking industry; and various techniques including analytic hierarchy process (AHP), mathematical models, and statistical techniques have been used. The empirical results reveal an exponential correlation between the combination of activity level and retention rate with CLV.

Abstract Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) is known as an important concept in marketing and management of organizations to increase the captured profitability. Total value that a customer produces during his/her lifetime is named customer lifetime value. The generated value can be calculated through different methods. Each method considers different parameters. Due to the industry, firm, business...متن کامل
Today, people are increasingly connected and extensively interact with each other using technology-enabled media. Hence, customers are more frequently exposed to social influence of other customers when making purchase decisions. However, established approaches for customer valuation most widely neglect network effects based on social influence leading to a misallocation of resources. Therefore...متن کامل
Being able to measure customer value is a prerequisite for effective customer relationship management and data-driven marketing strategy, as it allows to maximize return on marketing investment, particularly when resources are limited. While past profitability is certainly a useful metric, it is insufficient when trying to predict which customers are going to be most valuable in the future so a...متن کامل
Customer lifetime value (LTV) estimation involves two parts: the “survival” probabilities and profit margins. This article describes the estimation of those probabilities using discrete-time logistic hazard models and that of profit margins is based on linear regression. In the scenario when outliers are present among margins, we suggest applying robust regression with PROC ROBUSTREG.متن کامل
T measurement of customer lifetime value is important because it is used as a metric in evaluating decisions in the context of customer relationship management. For a firm, it is important to form some expectations as to the lifetime value of each customer at the time a customer starts doing business with the firm, and at each purchase by the customer. In this paper, we use a hierarchical Bayes...متن کامل
