Why is customer acquisition important?
Retaining existing customers is one of the most reliable ways to boost profitability, but new customers are the lifeblood of any business with serious growth aspirations. Improving the customer acquisition process can seriously enhance a businesses’ performance—just a 1% improvement in customer acquisition translates directly to a 3% increase to a company’s bottomline. One of the best ways to boost the customer acquisition process is via properly targeted marketing investments, which can help avoid misdirected campaigns that lead to either higher customer acquisition costs (CAC) or attract customers with low lifetime value (LTV).
In order to effectively implement a successful customer acquisition strategy, a deep understanding of channels is essential, along with an understanding of the lagging time effect. A lack of insights in those areas can result in a sub-optimal channel mix, limiting the effectiveness of your marketing and leading to a low return on your investment.
The Challenge we see
Brands and retailers struggle to acquire valuable customers within their expected time and cost parameters. This is often attributable to an incorrect channel mix and/or an inappropriate level of investment, leading to low acquisition rates and higher acquisition costs.
The VectorScient Solution
PredictAlly™, our proprietary recommendation engine, is engineered to address channel attribution questions with precision. We analyze each customer’s website visit history and methodically attribute the channel using probabilistic matching with a high degree of confidence.
Instead of the oversimplified approach of first- or last-click attribution that’s often deployed in this space, we apply weightage, allowing for a precision measurement that sets the basis for all recommendations we provide around customer acquisition.
