Customer lifetime value is the metric that implies the total revenue a business can relatively expect from a single customer account. It evaluates a customer's revenue value and correlates that number to the company's predicted customer lifespan. Businesses use this metric to specify significant consumer segments that are the most important to the company. CLTV tells corporations how much revenue they can anticipate one customer to produce throughout the business connection. The longer a customer proceeds to purchase from a firm, the greater their lifetime value becomes.
To calculate customer lifetime value you need to calculate the average purchase value, and then multiply that number by the average purchase frequency rate to determine customer value. Then, once you calculate the average customer lifespan, you can multiply that by customer value to determine customer lifetime value.

This is a direct reflection of the quality of the information you share, the action items and deliverables that you indicate, and the user experience that will keep them committed enough to complete the course. It’s like building blocks: Once you have that initial solid foundation of trust, you can continue to build and stimulate loyalty. This is not only desirable for your profit margins, but for your course’s reputation and the real-world consequence that you’re influencing through your students.
