Predicting The Future

Who is going to win “American Idol”?

Do you anticipate heavy traffic on your way home from work?

How will Microsoft’s Zune MP3 player fare against Apple’s iPod player?

metrics and intuition
Metrics And Intuition
  • Systems have been built to help us understand the past, and predict the future:
    • Comp Store Sales.
    • Stock Market: Dow Jones Index, S&P 500
    • Weather: Temperature, Cloud Cover, Humidity, Rain.
    • Sports: Playoff Seeding.

could you answer this question
Could You Answer This Question?

“Five years from now, if current market conditions remain reasonably constant, what will your sales and profit be, by product, brand or channel?”

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

predicting the future7
Predicting The Future

Think about the metrics available to you, where you work.

Most of the metrics explain “what happened in the past”.

You are paid to drive “future sales”.

multichannel forensics8
Multichannel Forensics

Multichannel Forensics is the study of how Customers interact with Advertising, Products, Brands and Channels.

Multichannel Forensics provide a roadmap for the CEO or Executive. The leader will understand which levers drive growth.

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

multichannel forensics9
Multichannel Forensics
  • There are two components in any Multichannel Forensics analysis.
    • Customer Loyalty. How loyal are customers within any product, brand or channel?
    • Customer Migration. Do customers stay within one product, brand or channel, or do they migrate to others?

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

repurchase modes
Repurchase Modes

Our products, brands or channels are classified into three Repurchase Modes, usually based on annual activity.

For the average business, we look at customers who purchased during 2005. Next, we count how many of those customers purchased during 2006.

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

repurchase modes11
Repurchase Modes

Retention Mode means you have a reasonably loyal customer base.

Hybrid Mode means you need a balance of loyalty and acquisition strategies.

Acquisition Mode means your main job function is to constantly acquire new customers.

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

repurchase modes12
Repurchase Modes

There are three Repurchase Modes:

Retention Mode: 60% - 100% Repurchase.

Hybrid Mode: 40% - 60% Repurchase.

Acquisition Mode: 0% - 40% Repurchase.

The repurchase mode determines the primary focus of your marketing activities.

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

migration modes
Migration Modes

Three Retention Modes are complimented with four Migration Modes.

Migration Modes explain how customers use products, brands or channels. Do customers only buy from one area, do they sample other areas, do they switch to other areas?

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

migration modes14
Migration Modes

Here are the Migration Modes:

Isolation Mode is when customers do not cross-shop other areas.

Equilibrium Mode is when customers try other areas of the business

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

migration modes15
Migration Modes

Two additional modes:

Transfer Mode is when customers switch to other areas of the business.

Oscillation Mode happens when customers alternate loyalty between products, brands or channels.

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

calculate migration mode
Calculate Migration Mode

Here’s an example: Online customers have a corporate repurchase rate of 55%.

Online customers had a 16% purchase rate into the retail channel.

The repurchase index is 16 / 55 = 29% = Equilibrium Mode.

migration probability table example
Migration Probability Table Example

Catalog is in Acquisition / Equilibrium Mode.

Online is in Acquisition / Equilibrium Mode.

Retail is in Hybrid / Isolation Mode.

Catalog customers shop the website and retail store. Online customers shop retail. Retail customers are unlikely to shop elsewhere.

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

migration probability table example19
Migration Probability Table Example

In this example, catalog growth is hard. Catalog can be used to drive traffic to other channels.

The website might be used for E-Commerce, or for research that drives customers to the store.

Store customers seem to only want to shop the store.

Gifts are in Hybrid / Isolation Mode.

Shelled are in Acquisition / Transfer Mode.

Roasted are in Acquisition / Equilibrium Mode.

In this example, Gift customers are the most loyal, but fail to cross-shop. Shelled Peanut customers become Roasted Peanut customers. Roasted Peanut customers shop the whole site.

five year product forecasts
Five Year Product Forecasts

The business analyst can build a forecast of future performance.

The analyst measures the probability of a customer migrating to every product, brand or channel combination. By appending spend levels to each combination, a future forecast can be derived.

leadership strategies
Leadership Strategies

Business units that operate in Equilibrium or Transfer Mode require leaders that have outstanding collaborative skills.

Because customers migrate back and forth in Equilibrium / Transfer Mode, business leaders also need to collaborate.

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

leadership strategies28
Leadership Strategies

Equilibrium and Transfer Mode leaders have the least control over their business.

Isolation Mode leaders have a lot of control. Small business units in Isolation Mode are ideal for new leaders. Leaders who don’t “play well with others” are ideally suited for Isolation Mode business units.

marketing strategies
Marketing Strategies
  • E-Mail Marketing:
    • Versions that meet the needs of customers likely to migrate to another product, brand or channel.
    • Try to move products, brands or channels from Acquisition to Hybrid, or Hybrid to Retention Mode.

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

marketing strategies30
Marketing Strategies
  • Catalog Marketing:
    • What role does catalog marketing play, given the results of a Multichannel Forensics analysis?
    • If catalog customers transfer to another channel, consider merchandising strategies that facilitate this transfer.

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

marketing strategies31
Marketing Strategies
  • Online Marketing:
    • Do online customers transfer to another channel (telephone, retail)?
    • If so, online marketing is “brand focused”, not “channel focused”.
    • If not, online marketing capitalizes on completing an online sale today.

Kevin Hillstrom, President: MineThatData [email protected] 206.853.8278 http://minethatdata.blogspot.com

marketing strategies32
Marketing Strategies
  • Data Mining:
    • Identify merchandise trends that facilitate customer migration from one product/brand/channel to another.
    • Build models that predict the migration.
    • Use Isolation Mode information to limit cross-shopping marketing strategies.

Each product, brand or channel plays a role in the larger ecosystem of your individual business.

Humans are great at looking at various trends, understanding where the future is heading, and then developing action plans based on what they are observing.

We do this well with macro-business trends.

Let’s do this within our own businesses, too!!
