The Retention Stage Explained

Learn what the Retention stage is, which metrics are worth measuring, and what marketing channels can move the needle.

During the retention phase, you’re focused on getting customers to come back and buy again.

You accomplish this by providing exceptional services and fostering relationships. This, in turn, allows you to get one-time customers to become repeat buyers AND prevent recurring customers from churning (which simply means canceling their ongoing service).

The retention phase is super important for two reasons.

First, if your customers are satisfied, they’ll buy more (revenue). Because the cost to acquire a customer is fixed (CAC), this means you’ll make more money from the same customer.

Second, if your customers are satisfied, they’ll recommend your business more (referral). This decreases your customer acquisition cost (CAC) because word of mouth leads are free!
