    Excellent infographic. If nothing else, this shows the importance of not relying on only ONE formula to base your LTV. The Starbucks model is probably a rare case as they base their customer lifespan at 20 years – I’d say that’s a pretty risky assessment for most companies today. I think with even a 3-5 year lifetime assessment, you can get pretty close.
