Acquisition and Retention


At PWX Solutions, we understand the multi-faceted approach needed for an effective and comprehensive marketing strategy. For maximum success and revenue growth, we focus on both new business acquisition and retention marketing to help our clients reach profitability and longevity.

Driving New Business

New business acquisition is key for growing and maintaining your business. From the top of the acquisition funnel, we assist clients with identifying their target audiences, communicating effectively to prospects, and converting those prospects into paid customers or donors. Investing in a robust new business strategy will ultimately pay off over time, leading to increased ROI and profitability.

Maximizing Customer Retention

While new business feeds the funnel, a solid retention strategy is essential for revenue growth. Strong retention rates indicate satisfied customers, which is always our goal! Nurturing and engaging with existing customers is vital – replacing a customer is much more costly than keeping an existing one – and thus contributes to long-term profitability. Our marketers are experts at managing subscription and membership businesses, optimizing retention rates and maximizing overall net revenue.
