It is advisable to present not only numerical values, such as returning customers, average customer acquisition cost, average order value, conversion rate, add-to-cart rate, and other relevant metrics, but also trending lines to indicate the direction of the trend.
LTV/CAC is an important metric for businesses to consider when evaluating their profitability. This metric is calculated by dividing the lifetime value (LTV) of a customer by the cost of acquiring that customer (CAC). The higher the number, the better for the business. LTV represents the profit a user can bring to the business over the duration of their time as a paying customer. CAC, on the other hand, measures how much the business spends to acquire a customer. By analyzing LTV/CAC, businesses can determine the effectiveness of their marketing and sales efforts, and make decisions on where to allocate resources to improve their profitability. Overall, LTV/CAC is a crucial metric for businesses looking to maximize their revenue and stay competitive in their respective industries.
An effective approach to presenting numerical information includes the demonstration of the amount generated from the initial event, the average customer value, and the quantity of individuals on the waitlist.
