Customer Equity provides a unifying framework for measuring customer value - the potential profitability of each customer to the company - as a financial asset and defines and shows how to implement customer-centric strategies for long-term customer retention, relationship building and bottom-line intangible value-creation. The book provides tools for managing the customer portfolio across segments and over time so that marketers can lengthen customer life cycles, tailor the marketing mix, optimize cross-functional operations and balance customer acquisition and retention, and considers IT's role in improving all company-customer interactions.

From the Back Cover:

"Customer Equity speaks to the most important business principle in the world: Manage your customer relationships as an asset. It's more than just a method, it's a complete system. The economics of this proposition are so compelling, one is shocked to note how few companies practice its disciplines. You had better put it to work, or your competitors will beat you to it."
-John Olsen, President and CEO, Marimba, Inc.

"You can bet that Customer Equity is going to be one of the key concepts Wall Street analysts will use to measure company performance. Blattberg, Getz, and Thomas provide a detailed description of how a firm can design and apply customer equity strategies that involve all components of their business. This is one of the most innovative books I've read in a long time."
-Jean-Michel Six, Senior Vice-President, WW Sales and Marketing, Giga Information Group

"This book provides a superb balance of powerful new concepts complemented by practical advice. It will help you define the issues, implement programs that will lead to success, and most importantly, provide the framework for measuring that success."
-Jay Istvan, Senior Vice President Strategy , eLoyalty Corporation.

"Customer Equity is a must-read for serious marketers. The authors have taken a holistic approach to the many facets of developing true client relationship management by citing relevant case studies from leading customer-driven companies. Practical and insightful!"
-Susanne Lyons, Chief Marketing Officer, Executive Vice President, The Charles Schwab Corporation

Book Description Harvard Business Review Press, United States, 2001. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. What s a customer worth? The company that can answer this question precisely is the company with an edge in the customer-based, technology- and information-intensive economy of today. But how can an asset as intangible as customer value be measured? This timely book provides a solution: a fully developed, highly practical new marketing system for measuring and managing customer value as a financial asset - a system uniquely suited to today s rapidly changing, increasingly digital marketplace. How has the management - or mismanagement - of customer assets played into the successes, failures, at-risk status, or Cinderella stories of GM, Amazon, AOL Time Warner, FedEx, the U.S. Armed Forces, Oprah, , and Harley Davidson?Drawing on these and other examples, the authors explain the strategies and tactics that make customer equity management work. They outline customer equity s three core strategies - customer acquisition, customer retention, and add-on selling - and the balance among them, and explain how the customer life cycle affects strategy and the marketing mix. Detailed, how-to chapters follow, clearly mapping out methods and practices for organizational restructuring, customer equity measurement, customer equity accounting, database management, and data analysis. Along with strategic and tactical guidance, Customer Equity provides precise metrics for evaluating a business more effectively and improving performance - the activity-based management of a company s marketplace. The authors present a new framework for structuring go-to-market activities that links those activities to useful metrics and allows better-informed marketing decisions.Marking a decisive move away from the traditional focus on mass marketing and brand equity, Customer Equity equips companies with the knowledge to manage customer portfolios across segments and over time, and gives marketers the means to lengthen customer life cycles, tailor the marketing mix, optimize cross-functional operations, and balance customer acquisition and retention. In doing so, Customer Equity enhances the ability of marketers, IT professionals, senior executives, and managers to make better decisions, generate higher profits, and increase shareholder wealth. Whether for its analysis of emerging marketing trends, blueprints for effective customer equity management, or practical advice and guidelines for implementing and using this new system, Customer Equity is the book companies and marketers must consult if they hope to acquire and retain the most attractive customers - and the competitive edge in today s marketplace.Robert C. Blattberg is a Professor at Northwestern s Kellogg Graduate School of Management in Chicago. Gary Getz is a Managing Principal at Integral, Inc. in Northern California. Jacquelyn S.
