Customer retention is much more than simply measuring how many customers are still active 12 months after they begin a relationship with your company. It’s much more than trying to please everybody who walks in the door or orders from your online store. It is, in fact, a perpetual process that is all about profitable allocation of limited resources. How best to focus your dollars to know where customers are in the buying cycle, what behaviors distinguish one customer from another and which customers are worthy of effort in moving them toward upward migration. The key and often overlooked component of retention is to have the discipline to ignore the disengaged.Read More

Let me get some more data before I can jump on the millennial bandwagon.Read More

Analytics means different things to different people and that’s OK! The common themes are as follows. Given the continued interest from clients about Analytics, I feel the need to use this platform to describe what is happening in the Predictive Analytics Ecosystem. These are exciting times for Allant and I’m thrilled that we have the resources with analytics in their DNA to help us navigate all of the buzz. With the proliferation of data and “analytics” in the marketplace, I often need to ask folks externally, “WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ANALYTICS!”?Read More
