Marketers have come to rely on so-called "response models" to bolster marketing campaign results. The goal of these models is to target customers who are most likely to respond to a promotional offer. Although highly successful, such models do not take profitability into account. As a result, volumes, even revenues, may increase while profits plummet. This session will offer a framework within which response and profit are jointly considered, aligned with the goal of optimizing margins. Topics include: examples of response-focused pitfalls, root causes of response-generated value loss, integrating profit and response, what to do when response and profit conflict, and how advanced analytics can help.
