How to identify VIP customers?
Understanding and engaging with VIP customers can appear to be a tough nut to crack but if you follow your customers and sales closely, you will understand that there are certain metrics that can help you uncover the trails.
You can also try checking the purchase history of your customers.

For now, let’s understand the metrics that can help you refine this identification process.
Key metrics to identifying your VIP customers
To identify your VIP customers with precision, you need to focus on key metrics that offer deep insights into their behavior.
After over a decade of refining our approaches, we’ve identified several crucial metrics that will help you separate your VIPs from the rest.
- Purchase Frequency: VIP customers often make frequent purchases. Monitoring purchase frequency helps pinpoint these high-value individuals.
- Customer Lifetime Value (CLTV): Calculating the CLTV involves projecting the total value a customer will bring to your business over their entire relationship with you. VIPs typically have a significantly higher CLTV.
- Average Order Value (AOV): VIPs often have higher average order values, contributing more to your revenue with each transaction.
- Referral Rate: VIPs often become brand advocates, leading to a higher referral rate. They bring in more customers, directly impacting your business growth.
By focusing on these key metrics, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of your VIP customers, ensuring your strategies are finely tuned to their needs.
