you can use the stages of the lifecycle to develop strategies that prolong the
relationship with your customer and increase LTV.
The secret's out (in a small way) and Google is happily
sharing a top line look at the processes and algorithms that go together to
make up what the company describes as “One of the largest and most user facing
applications of ML (machine learning) at Google”, namely the Priority
So how can we use this knowledge to ensure better inbox placement in
Gmail? And is this news to us anyway?
RFM (Recency, Frequency, Monetary value) segmentation is one
of the most tried and tested methods of segmentation used in direct marketing.
It is based on the presumption that someone’s future actions are best predicted
by their past ones.
So how can this popular method of segmentation be used in today’s
data rich world, can it help answer the 64 million dollar question in email
marketing: who do I send what to and when do I send it?
