This course has been replaced. Please see the schedule for the new Net Lift Models: Optimizing the Impact of Your Marketing Efforts course.
The true effectiveness of a marketing campaign is not the response rate; it is the incremental impact. That is, true effectiveness is additional revenue, directly attributable to the campaign, that would not otherwise have been generated. The problem is that targeting strategies often are not designed to maximize the incremental impact. Typical targeting models are successful at finding clients who are interested in the product, but too often these clients would have bought the product regardless of whether they received a promotion. In such cases, the incremental impact is insignificant, and marketing dollars could have been spent elsewhere. Incremental lift models are designed to maximize incremental impact (that is, the incremental lift over the control group) by targeting the undecided clients who can be motivated by marketing.
Learn how to
- build incremental lift models that maximize the difference in response rates between the clients who receive the offer and their control group
- identify good incremental lift predictive variables
- build incremental lift models using a variety of techniques, with special focus on nonlinear additive modeling based on Generalized Naive Bayes Classifiers
- evaluate and deploy incremental models.
Who should attend
Statisticians, business analysts, and market researchers who build predictive models for marketing and retention campaigns
