10% may not seem very significant, but when it comes to buying customers, 10% can make the difference between failure and profitability.

Are you Buying the Right Customers to Increase Your Revenue and Profits?

The concept of buying customers centers around the idea that companies need to allocate great importance to the concept of determining the actual customer acquisition or ‘purchase’ within a period

We typically do this with the marketing and advertising funds we’ve set aside in our business.

When you aim to buy your customers, it is important to channel all your efforts and marketing investments in such a way that it offers you guaranteed results. But despite all the efforts it requires, if you are successful at ‘buying customers’, you can ensure profits and business success for yourself. If you’d like to learn more about this concept, watch this video for information.

This being said, we must pay close attention to the marketing activities that work and do not work in our business. Many of us cannot afford to waste these valuable dollars and so the best way to make the most of our investment is to invest in the activities that work.

At ActionCOACH, we use a very simple formula to identify what strategies we should use to improve our clients’ businesses:

Leads x Conversion Rate = Customers

Customers x Average Dollar Sale x # Transactions = Revenue

Revenue x Margin = Profit

Hundreds of strategies are available to make improvements in each of these areas. Making small incremental changes to a few key areas can have massive results for even the smallest business.

This is where the 10% comes in. 

Let’s say you have 4,000 leads in a year with a conversion rate of 25%. This means you would have around 1,000 customers.

With the 1,000 customers, let’s say they buy from you twice with an average dollar sale of $100. This five you a revenue of $200,000.

If you have 25% margins, that leaves you with a profit of $50,000.

Now imagine if you could see a 10% increase in the 5 key areas: leads, conversion rate, average dollar sale, number of transactions, and margins.

You would then see a profit of $80,520 by the second year. Which is a 46% increase in revenue and a 61% increase in profits.

If you continued to make 10% improvements every year in these areas, in 5 years from now you could see profits upward of $152,000.

In today’s marketplace, we may well do better working on other areas rather than lead generation. Maximizing Margins should always be the first area you look at in any business.
