In the dynamic world of recurring revenue businesses, and sharp declines in consumer loyalty, improving retention strategies is an ongoing mission. When brands and businesses are in a state of constant acquisition, traditional data collection methods no longer suffice. Luckily, there is a new approach that can help supercharge retention, providing a unique opportunity for brands to tap into genuine digital consumer journeys that extend beyond their own platforms.

We call this the “fusion of churn intelligence and behavioral data.” This proprietary approach taps into the power of zero-party, fully-permissioned behavioral data, revealing consumer actions beyond self-reported survey data. Having a holistic view of your consumer can redefine how you approach retention. 

Churn Intelligence Meets Zero-Party Behavioral Data

Churn intelligence isn't merely about understanding churn; it's about anticipating it and taking action. When you combine it with zero-party, fully-permissioned behavioral data, you have the recipe for addressing your retention challenges.

Zero-party data is the holy grail of consumer insights. It's data that is willingly and consciously shared by individuals. What sets it apart is its authenticity and depth. Unlike self-reported survey data, zero-party behavioral data paints a true picture of real actions and behaviors, revealing what people genuinely do. In today’s privacy and regulatory landscape, this data can be difficult to obtain, especially when it comes to gaining information about competitors. That’s where Measure’s proprietary approach comes in, providing a window into the full spectrum of consumer digital behaviors. 

Reimagining Retention with Churn Intelligence and Zero-Party Data

Let's delve into how this dynamic synergy can redefine your retention strategy:

  • Predictive models: Zero-party behavioral data empowers predictive models to spot customers at risk of churning. With this knowledge in hand, you can craft personalized retention strategies that truly resonate.

  • Risk highlights: Behavioral data-driven segments highlight high-risk customers so you can tailor your retention initiatives to cater to specific needs within each segment, maximizing impact.

  • Churn triggers: Zero-party data reveals the precise triggers behind churn. For example, reduced app engagement could be linked to decreased social media activity. This insight becomes your guide for crafting effective interventions.

  • Competitor data: When you have the opportunity to dive into competitor data, you can uncover unmet needs among their customers. You can leverage this valuable information to enhance your offerings, luring dissatisfied customers away from your competitors.

  • Engagement patterns: Behavioral data lays bare user engagement patterns, allowing you to identify peak usage times and align your strategies accordingly and give your user engagement and retention rates a substantial boost.

  • Target outreach: When you understand where your customers spend their time, you are able to select the most effective channels for engagement, capitalizing on the power of zero-party data for targeted outreach.

  • Fine tune strategies: By diving into your competitors' app notification strategies and comparing engagement rates, you can fine tune your own approach and stay a step ahead. Zero-party data ensures your strategy is rooted in real behaviors.

In an era where retention is the linchpin of success, the fusion of churn intelligence with zero-party behavioral data isn't just a strategy—it's a revelation. Whether in e-commerce, app development, or subscriptions, this approach unlocks retention excellence. Predictive actions, laser-focused segments, and impactful engagement—all fueled by zero-party data's authenticity.
