Visualize Who MAKES / COSTS You Money With Cool Customer Matrix | Visualinfo | Scoop.it

Which of your customers is making you money and what customers are costing you money? Amazing how many companies can't answer this critical question. 

This Customer Data Matrix provides a way to visualize how many customers you have at what levels of lifecycle development.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, January 30, 2013 2:16 PM

I'm a sucker for a matrix and this sales data matrix from @CanopyLabs is no exception. If your company can do the legwork this visualization could prove invaluable because:

* Hidden weaknesses come to the front. 
* Drags on profitability are clear.

* Best, most profitable, customers jump off the page.

* Strategy is easier to create. 

Ask the hard questions and use this matrix to visualize your customer lifecycle since it may surprise you in good and bad ways.
