Prospecting UpSells with Behavioral Analytics

first_imgThe first chart shows the daily use profile for two different individual subscribers by graphing the total number of reports accessed over a 90-day period. Each daily use profile is color coded based on the unique devices used to access the reports. The daily use profile with just the blue color shows how one subscriber’s account accessed reports via a single device. The daily use profile with multiple colors shows how the other subscriber’s account accessed reports via five devices.Whereas the daily use profile with one color represents a loyal subscriber, the daily use profile with five colors is a prospect for an up-sell because of unmonetized demand of multiple users sharing one subscriber’s account. But how can you be sure the multi-color profile isn’t simply a raving fan? In paid content, one of the challenges for corporate sales is finding demand for content that can be monetized—finding a good lead. Our research shows one of the best sources for leads is within existing individual subscribers where several individuals are sharing access to the paid content. The charts below show a typical example of how to identify an individual subscriber that is a lead for an up-sell to a corporate or group agreement. The number two is a good start. In the hourly use profile for each account, the shared account has twice as many active hours as the individual account. Additionally, some devices are active earlier than other devices, but overlap on their activity which means they are used in different time zones. Also, note the individual account profile shows inactivity for lunch in the middle of the day. There are no low activity hours for the shared account, rather it peaks at the periods of most overlap between devices.Looking at the quarterly use profile, it becomes clear that each of the shared account devices were active throughout the period. Unlike the individual account which had ten inactive work-days during the period, the shared account had no inactive days.  Digging deeper into the quarterly profile, the shared account consumes three times the content as compared to the individual account.

Cruise and DoorDash are teaming up in San Francisco in 2019

first_imgHonda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 69 Photos 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Share your voice 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. General Motors Cruise AV is more than a Bolt without a steering wheel Enlarge ImageSan Francisco residents can look forward to autonomous food deliveries this year thanks to a pilot program from DoorDash and Cruise AV. General Motors If you like having food delivered to you, but hate having to interact with the delivery driver, then the impersonal future you’ve always dreamed of may soon be upon you, provided you live in San Francisco. GM-backed self-driving car startup Cruise announced on Thursday that it’s partnering with the delivery app DoorDash to start offering autonomous deliveries as a test program beginning this year.”Delivery is a significant opportunity for Cruise as we prepare to commercialize our autonomous vehicle technology and transform transportation,” said Cruise CEO Dan Ammann, in a statement. “Partnering with DoorDash will provide us with critical learnings as we further our mission to deliver technology that makes people’s lives better and more convenient.”Details on the pilot program are a little thin on the ground, but Cruise did state that in addition to restaurant deliveries, grocery deliveries from select stores will be available. We also know that there are plans to expand the program beyond the San Francisco area in the future. 0 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustle Share your voice Self-driving cars 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura 81 Photos 49 Photos Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff Car Industry More From Roadshow 4 Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. 52 Photos 68 Photos 18 Photos Tags 41 Photoscenter_img Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families 26 Photos 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Self-driving cars,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck Post a comment 10 Photos 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 12 Photos GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec: Sharp handling, sharper looks Car Games and Apps Auto Tech Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.  Comments Tags More From Roadshow 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado 71 Photoslast_img read more

Joy predicts AL win in all 3 city polls

first_imgSajeeb Wazed JoyICT adviser to the prime minister, Sajeeb Wazed Joy has predicted easy victory of the Awami League’s three mayor candidates in the upcoming civic polls in Rajshahi, Barishal, and Sylhet city corporations.“I can quite confidently say that in Barisal and Rajshahi Awami League will win by a landslide. In Sylhet, we are slightly ahead, but it is too close to call,’ Joy wrote on his Facebook page on Sunday.Joy made the predictions, based on the results of an opinion survey conducted in the three city corporations recently by Research Development Center (RDC) this month.Joy said the results of the survey, that covered 1,241 registered voters in Barishal City Corporation, show AL’s mayoral aspirant Serniabat Sadik Abdullah may bag 44 per cent votes as against Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s Mujibur Rahman Sarowar who may secure 13.1 per cent votes.The survey in Rajshahi, on 1,294 voters, said that AL’s Khairuzzaman Liton would get 58 per cent of votes compared to potential 16.4 of possible votes for BNP’s Mosaddek Hossain Bulbul, said Joy, also son of premier Sheikh Hasina.According to him, the survey in Sylhet, conducted on 1,196 registered voters, predicted a tight contest as the AL’s Badar Uddin Ahmed Kamran may get 33 per cent of votes while the BNP’s Ariful Haque Chowdhury 28.1 per cent.Joy is confident that results of the survey would turn into a reality as he said, “I have been conducting our opinion polls with RDC for the past five years. I have found their methods and results to be the most accurate.”Joy also called on the law enforcement and electoral officers to keep vigilance during the balloting.“I would, however, urge my party members, law enforcement and electoral officers to be vigilant for BNP attempts to seize polling centers and stuff ballots in an attempt to blame the Awami League.”last_img read more
