Customer lifetime value (CLTV)
What does it mean:
Plain and simple it’s the average revenue that each of your customers gives you over their lifetime. It’s most applicable to a recurring SaaS business model but can be used in other models.
Average Monthly Recurring Revenue Per Customer (ARPU) ÷ User Churn Rate = LTV
Use it in a sentence:
“Our LTV has been very flat, are there any add-on services we can start to sell to increase it?”
“We are improving our LTV by reducing churn and selling into larger companies now.”
At a party:
“I don’t want to brag, but our LTV is higher than Dropbox.”
