Customer Lifetime Stages
Using the Lifetime Stage Map, you can see the distribution of each customer stage which helps you to evaluate your customer base and direct the action plan to improve the situation. For instance, if the customer has made just one purchase - he or she will be identified as a ‘New customers’. If such a buyer doesn’t make an order for a certain amount of time, they will fall into the ‘Need attention’ stage, later ‘At risk’ and finally they will be classified as ‘Lost’.
You can create segments for those customer stages easily as well.
