How does marketing compare to a game of pool? Sometimes you hit a good shot – 9 ball corner pocket – like when you’ve marketed a product and your customer purchases it. But sometimes your shot misses, and you knock in your opponent’s ball. You could even knock your ball into the pocket, but mistakenly knock your opponent’s ball into a different pocket at the same time.
Of course, you can’t predict everything in a game of pool – or in
marketing. A campaign may reveal a weakness that sends
customers scuttling to a competitor. A new product can
cannibalize an existing product line. Customers could leave one
of your legacy product lines to consume one of your newly
launched products – perhaps causing you to lose some
But unlike pool, it’s hard to observe and measure with the naked eye what’s happening in marketing. The way to improve your chances of success is to build a solid measurement plan that lets you define and measure diagnostic metrics.

Companies that take a more sophisticated approach to customer success, revenue retention and revenue growth after the initial sale earn 46 percent more revenue compared to their less sophisticated peers, according to a global study conducted in 2015 across software, hardware, SaaS and life sciences companies.
The study highlights the urgent need for companies to consider the full range of customer success and revenue growth activities after the initial sale—collectively called the “revenue lifecycle”—which includes onboarding, adoption, upselling/cross-selling, retention and renewal. The study shows that a company that improves people, processes, technology, data and KPIs in the revenue lifecycle can expect to improve renewal rates by more than 31 points.
