#1 Predict Customer Churn
Getting new customers is getting harder and harder. For any business, keeping your existing customer happy and retaining them is better than gaining 2 new customers. Competition is getting fierce. Your competitors are keen on poaching your existing customers giving them discounts and offering better customer services.
And this is where predicting customer churn can be helpful. Predicting customer churn is nothing but making educated guesses with machine learning which of your existing customer might cancel the subscription or which of them might switch to a lower plan.
“Is he thinking of cancelling?"
#2 Analyze sentiments and get alerted
Customer reviews on Trust Pilot, Yelp, Trip Advisor etc has the potential to both boost your business or to ruin it. Catch customer sentiments and create opportunities to engage and land your point of view. Sooth your customers by offer discounts or apologies for your mistakes.
We know s**t happens. Get early insights and be prepared to respond to make the maximum out of it. If you get lemons, offer lemonades. Turn every customer sourness into sweetness.
