Abstract

The life event cycle is a modern relationship marketing tool. The following exploratory study will demonstrate how small and medium enterprises (SMEs) can efficiently apply it to investigate and guide customer development actively in their companies. This paper will provide explorative data from an SME for the first time, generating a detailed analysis and corresponding management implications that can be applied to the investigated health club SME as well as SMEs with comparable issues.
