CTR - click through rate

customer - The software buyer.
Customers are the most important stakeholders in your software company. According to Philip Kotler, marketing is the science and art of finding, keeping, and growing profitable customers.
It's much easier to sell additional goods and services to existing customers than to find new customers. For software developers, that means selling your other applications to existing customers. It also means finding other developers' applications, and offering them on an affiliate basis to your customers. Upgrades are another source of selling to existing customers.
