Yesterday I started doing my own year-end review.
- What went well?
- What went poorly?
- What was a surprise?
- What will I do next?
The point of this exercise is to try to get a perspective on the year as a whole. Something beyond the easy to measure metrics like revenue, AOV, etc.
The big metric for me is retention, represented by Repeat Purchase Rate. Since Repeat Customer Insights is a subscription app, tracking how many customers stay around from month-to-month is a key measurement.
It's a key metric for your Shopify store too. If you sell subscriptions it's probably the top metric you're watching. For everyone else, it's important for making sure customer acquisition costs are kept low.
Get started getting more from your repeat customers
If you haven't signed up for Repeat Customer Insights, it's an easy process. Just give it your Shopify store url and it'll walk you through the setup, import, and analysis process automatically. No code needed.
