What are your customers really worth?

At the recent IBM Smarter Commerce Conference, Brian Fetherstonhaugh, Chairman & CEO of OgilvyOne Worldwide, talked about how smart marketers are not only appreciating the full value of customers, but also learning how to drive it. Brian shared experiences on how the emerging fields of Social CRM and Social Commerce can help companies unlock the full value of customers.

Most marketers vastly underestimate the full value that customers bring to their business, and as a result under-invest in their customer relationships. In the digitally empowered world, your customers can be worth far more than it appears on the surface.
Look beyond an individual transaction to deliver an experience that maximizes the entire Lifetime Value of a customer relationship. As customers evangelize your brand, their influence creates an advocacy effect that magnifies the value they create for your business. And as the relationship deepens, you can engage them as co-creators of new products and services to create a mutual value exchange through the collaboration effect.
