Don't worry; we're not going to make you solve a riddle or do a dance to find out. We'll give it to you straight — CVO is the key to maximising customer satisfaction and profits in today's online world. But that's just the tip of the iceberg.

In this blog, we'll not only tell you what CVO is but also give you a step-by-step guide to implementing it in your business, making it easy for you to take your business to the next level with this powerful strategy. So, if you're ready to learn about CVO, let's get started!

CV what? 

CVO. Or, if you want to be fancy, Customer Value Optimisation. 

Customer Value Optimisation is a holistic approach to online business that focuses on maximising the value a customer receives from a company's products or services. This involves creating a seamless customer experience from start to finish, from the moment a customer first interacts with a business's website or social media presence to the moment they make a purchase.

Why is CVO Important?

The key to CVO is understanding what your customers want and need and delivering it to them in the most efficient and effective way possible. This requires a deep understanding of your customers, including their goals, pain points, and preferences. With this information, you can optimise every aspect of the customer journey to provide the most value possible.

It is a proven strategy that has been shown to increase customer satisfaction, conversions, and profits. Businesses can create long-term relationships with their customers and build brand loyalty by focusing on the customer rather than just selling a product or service. This leads to increased repeat business and a steady stream of new customers, who will become advocates for your brand.

How Can You Implement CVO?

Implementing CVO can be broken down into four key steps:

Data Collection

In this step, companies gather data on their customers and their behaviour. This data can be collected through various means, including website analytics, customer feedback, and surveys. 

Website analytics can provide insights into how customers are using the website, what pages they are visiting, and how long they are spending on the site, while customer feedback can be obtained through surveys, reviews, and support interactions. This data will provide a wealth of information about your customers and their needs, preferences, and pain points.

Customer Segmentation

Using the data collected in the previous step, companies can segment their customers based on their behaviour, preferences, and buying habits. This process helps to group customers with similar characteristics and needs into distinct segments. 

For example, customers who frequently purchase products might be grouped together, while those who have only purchased once might be placed in a separate segment. By understanding these customer segments, companies can tailor their offerings and customer experience to meet the specific needs of each group.

Customer Value Analysis

In this step, companies analyse the data collected in the first step to determine the value each customer segment provides to the business. This includes analysing the lifetime value of each customer, their average order value, and their repeat purchase rate. With this information, companies can identify the most valuable customer segments and prioritise their efforts to optimise the customer experience for these groups.


Based on the customer value analysis, companies can optimise their customer experience to provide maximum value to their customers. This can include making changes to the website, product offerings, and customer service. 

Companies might personalise the customer experience by displaying personalised recommendations, tailoring promotions based on customer preferences, or providing better customer support. By optimising the customer experience, companies can increase customer satisfaction, conversions, and loyalty, leading to long-term business success.
