If you're a brand with multiple SKUs, collections, or product categories, this one's for you.❣️
From inside the clever minds of Pilothouse, we’re bringing you a simple way to figure out your customer’s lifetime value (LTV).
Lifetimely is a Shopify app that can give you comprehensive LTV analytics. No, this is not sponsored. The team genuinely uses this tool, loves it, and strongly believes you should consider using it, too.
🤔 What does it do?
Installing this app makes it so easy to look at a customer's product journey.
You’ll be able to see what your entry products are and what people come back to your site to buy next.
🤷 Why is it important?
1️⃣ Understanding customer LTV allows you to make informed decisions about what products to focus on in your creatives for re-targeting funnels.
2️⃣ Since you know what most people are buying first, you can choose to showcase this creative in your top-of-funnel or awareness ads to increase your chances of conversion.
3️⃣ You can also make creatives that pair products in the most popular product journeys. Example: If you see that people are most likely to purchase A then B, make a creator-generated-content video of A & B being used together.
The only downside? Lifetimely isn't free.
The Pilothouse Meta team recommends the pro plan ($75/month) so you can get access to the LTV analytics. A handful of clients use this tool and see it as a real needle mover in making hyper-informed decisions for creatives. 👌
