What is Customer Retention?

For your business, customer retention means the number of customers that come back and purchase from you again and again. Its direct opposite is customer churn – this is the number of customers who don’t buy from you consistently.

Customer retention hinges on several key factors:

  • The first activation is integral. By this, we mean encouraging your customer to take the desired action on your landing pages.
