What is customer engagement?
Customer engagement is all about the interactions between your brand and your customers. At it's core, customer engagement is that special something that your brand does that keeps your customers coming back.
How to calculate engagement
There are a number of different ways to calculate engagement. The most important metrics to measure are:
Guest checkout rates
Average order value
Repeat purchase rate
Calculating customer engagement
Guest checkout rates
The guest checkout rate is the number of customers who complete a purchase without making an account. Guest check out rates are important because customers that create an account have a higher chance to make repeat purchases.
Calculation: number of orders completed by a guest/total number of orders.
Purchase frequency (PF)
This metric is important because when you know how long it takes the average customer to make another purchase, you’ll have a better understanding of how engaged they are.
Calculation: number of orders in the last 365 days/number of unique customer over the last 365 days.
Average order value (AOV)
This number will tell you how much the average customer spends per purchase when they shop with you. In general, repeat customers spend roughly 7X more than their one-time purchase counterparts, making this an important metric to understand.
Calculation: total revenue over the last 365 days/total number of orders placed in the last 365 days.
Repeat purchase rate (RPR)
Your repeat purchase rate gives you gives you a clearer snapshot of the effectiveness of your entire retention strategy because it tells you how many customers are engaged enough to make more than one purchase at your store.
Calculation: number of customers that bought more than once/total number of customers.
