Know how you can find your best marketing prospects and most valuable customers.

In this course, we explain ways in which you as the marketing expert, can identify your best marketing prospects and most valuable customers, which ones will give the best return on investment throughout their term of involvement with you – effectively the “Customer Lifetime Value”.  This course describes from a theoretical and practical viewpoint, ways of segmentation of your actual and potential marketing base along with Decision Tree methods to identify individuals who are most likely to purchase.

We also discuss how you can increase the value of your customers, through appropriate marketing, targeting and specific messaging and measure the effectiveness of doing this.

An overview of statistical concepts will be covered, although the course will be very light on technical detail.  The focus of this interactive course will be to identify opportunities for implementing the above for your business / client, rather than attempting to provide hands-on instruction for delegates to carry these out themselves.
