Focusing on Existing Customers to Unlock Growth

Many established companies often prioritize acquiring new customers to fuel their growth and may overlook or take for granted their most valuable asset: existing customers. According to McKinsey & Company, 80% of the value created by successful growth companies comes from their core business – specifically, generating new revenue from existing companies. In a media business where each customer represents multiple buying points individually – membership, e-learning and conference attendance – how do you effectively generate more revenue per customer? How do you take a customer from buying an attendee pass and expand their investment to include membership or e-learning? In larger organizations, how can you expand one person spending $2,000 into a company spending five-figures? What’s the role of marketing, data, content and sales in executing this approach? Learn tips and strategies for unlocking growth from your existing customers.
