Customer Ranking

Customer ranking identifies the top N customers who are most likely to purchase. Use customer ranking to:

  • Provide an alternative to a recommended audience size, such as when a recommended audience size is unavailable for a specific product or category

  • Serve targeted product messages to defined audiences

  • Identify first-time buyer personas

  • Drive up conversion rates

  • Drive down opt-outs

Use customer ranking to define an audience using the top N customers. Use customer ranking as an alternate to recommended audience sizes when an audience is too large (or small) or if a recommended audience size is unavailable for a specific product or category.

The Ranking attribute in the Predicted Affinity table ranks customer scores by product. A rank that is less than or equal to X will provide the top N customers with an affinity for this product. Combine this attribute with the Product Attribute attribute to build customer rankings for a specific product category, class, or brand.
