Navigating customer value: Mastering LTV prediction with open banking

Share this post

In today’s digital marketplace, understanding your customers’ lifetime value (LTV) is crucial. It’s about distinguishing between a fleeting transaction and lifelong patronage. This distinction is vital, as nurturing customers who consistently engage with your brand can significantly impact your business’s sustainability and growth. 

Decoding Customer Lifetime Value 

LTV represents the total worth a customer brings to your business over their entire relationship. For instance, a customer spending £200 annually over three years has an LTV of £600. Subtracting the £30 marketing cost to acquire them, their net LTV stands at £570. 

Unraveling LTV Calculation 

Historical methods sum up a customer’s purchases, dividing by the number of transactions to find their average spend. Modern businesses might leverage tools or platforms for these calculations, focusing on metrics like average order value, gross margin, churn rate, and purchase frequency. 

Yet, the past doesn’t always predict the future. This is where predictive LTV models shine, employing algorithms to anticipate changes in customer behaviour. 

The Path to Predictive Precision 

Predictive models come in various forms: 

  • Probabilistic Models forecast future buying patterns based on historical data. 
  • Cohort Models categorize customers by shared characteristics, predicting spending behaviour within these groups. 
  • Machine Learning Models use customer data to forecast future behaviours, incorporating a broad spectrum of data points for nuanced predictions.

The Strategic Advantage of LTV Prediction 

Predicting LTV equips businesses to: 

  • Allocate resources efficiently, focusing on high-value customers. 
  • Enhance customer segmentation for personalized marketing. 
  • Increase profitability by prioritizing customers with higher LTV. 
  • Tailor products and services to meet the needs of top clients. 

How Open Banking Amplifies LTV 

Open banking democratizes financial data, enabling businesses to offer enriched customer experiences. By simplifying payments and offering a unified view of financial accounts, open banking can elevate customer satisfaction, directly influencing LTV.

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
