Business metrics do a great job summarizing the past. But if you want to predict how customers will respond in the future, there is one place to turn--predictive analytics. By learning from your abundant historical data, predictive analytics provides the marketer something beyond standard business reports and sales forecasts: actionable predictions for each customer. These predictions encompass all channels, both online and off, foreseeing which customers will buy, click, respond, convert or cancel. If you predict it, you own it.
Predictive Analytics for Business, Marketing and Web is a concentrated training program that includes interactive breakout sessions. In two days we cover:
- The techniques, tips and pointers you need in order to run a successful predictive analytics and data mining initiative
- How to strategically position and tactically deploy predictive analytics and data mining at your company
- How to bridge the prevalent gap between technical understanding and practical use
- How a predictive model works, how it's created and how much revenue it generates
No background in statistics or modeling is required. The only specific knowledge assumed for this training program is moderate experience with Excel.
Who this seminar is for:
--Managers: Project leaders, directors, CXOs, vice presidents, investors and decision makers of any kind involved with analytics, direct marketing or online marketing activities.
--Marketers: Personnel running or supporting direct marketing, response modeling, or online marketing who wish to improve response rates and increase campaign ROI for retention, upsell and cross-sell.
--Technology experts: Analysts, BI directors, developers, DBAs, data warehousers, and consultants who wish to extend their expertise to predictive analytics.
