Smart Metrics: Purchase Patterns

A new Purchase Patterns.tab is added to the Dashboard Smart Metrics. For each segment you have the figures for:
• Time to purchase – from entering the segment to the next purchase.
• Number of purchases – the number of purchase for a typical contact in the segment.
• Lifecycle length – the time from registration to the last purchase for a typical contact in this segment.

In addition to this marketers have further metrics for some segments:

First-time buyers
• Instant first-time buyers – the % of contacts who registered and purchased on the same day.
Defecting customers and Inactive customers
• Winback rate for first-time buyers – the % of former first-time buyers in that segment who purchased again.
• Winback rate for active customers – the % of former active customers in that segment who purchased again.
1% impact revenue metrics
The Predictive Revenue tab additional metrics which show the monetary value of each 1% of conversion over the last 30 days, and the predicted future revenue for each additional 1% of conversions. The segment with the highest value is flagged by a Best% marker. In this way users can compare the performance of the different segments and decide where your marketing budget would be most effectively spent.

A New Predict Dashboard

The new Predict Dashboard shows the status of all the Predict widgets on the same page. It shows the exact status of the integration during the set-up and what steps to take next. It also highlights any Predict features or products which you are not yet using.

Predict Discovery

This is a new feature from Predict focusing not only on recommending products, but also giving a “showroom” interface layered above your website. Intended to show customers products they’ll love from the product catalog, depending on their interests and mood at the time. This makes it easier for your customers to view, and to buy, more of your products.
