Shopware RFM Analysis

What is an RFM Analysis?

RFM analysis is a marketing strategy that looks at three factors when determining how valuable a customer is: recency (how recently they made a purchase), frequency (how often they make purchases), and monetary value (how much they spend per purchase).

RFM analysis can be used to identify which customers are most valuable and target them with specific marketing campaigns. Additionally, RFM analysis can help to identify which customers are at risk of churning and take steps to retain them. By understanding the data, businesses can more effectively target their marketing efforts and improve customer retention.

Why is a RFM Analysis important for your Shopware Store?
