Why Customer Relationship Management? What Makes CRM Viable?
Ankit Kedia, Australia, Member
What makes CRM a viable option is the cost dynamics
- The cost of getting a new customer is 4 times the cost of retaining an existing customer.
- 80% of a firm's business comes from 20% of the customers.
Hence the firm should channelise its efforts in retaining this 20% section of customers through its CRM activities.
 

 
What Makes Customer Relationship Management Viable
Emiel Veenstra, Business Consultant, Netherlands, Member
Ankit, I completely agree. Although one important factor should not be forgotten: to check whether the customer, even if he is one of the 20%, is profitable.
So, I think this is an element you should add to CRM: Only keep the customers that are profitable.
Therefor the company must have the possibility to calculate the real costs and thus profits per customer.
 

 
Viability of Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

I agree too! And one way of estimating customer profitability is the CLV (Customer Lifetime Value) Concept, a good approach to know what will be the expected purchase behavior.
Customer Loyalty Programs look to improve customer retention rate, customer profitability and reduce marketing costs.
