About this session:
Clumpiness and How it Can Make Firms Rich
Customer lifetime value, predictive analytics, and big data are “all the rage.” One of the most famous ways in which all three of these techniques are brought into marketing practice, and has been for 40+ years, is the concept of RFM segmentation. R = how recently the customer bought, F = how frequently they buy, and M = monetary value, with a customer that is high on all three being scored as “the best.” In this research, Professor Bradlow will demonstrate a very important missing letter, C = clumpiness. That is, digital and online consumption of products has led to “consumer binging” which will be shown to be highly predictive of customer value. Examples using data from Hulu, Ebay, Amazon, and more traditional brick-and-mortar retailers will be described.
