When we look at lead & account data, we’re focused on the past. How did we do last quarter? What happened in H1 2023? And how does that compare to H1 2022? How fast did accounts X, Y, and Z convert? Data becomes more valuable when we use it to predict the future instead of just analyzing the past. That’s where propensity scoring comes in.
Propensity scoring is an approach that attempts to predict the likelihood that visitors, leads, and accounts will perform certain actions. It’s a statistical approach that accounts for all the independent and confounding variables that affect customer behavior.
So, for example, a propensity model can help a GTM team to determine the likelihood that a lead will convert to a customer. Or that a customer will churn. Or even that an email recipient will unsubscribe.
To create a propensity score, various customer data points such as firmographics, usage history, and behavior are analyzed, and a model is created to predict the probability of the customer taking a specific action. The resulting score is then used to target users with personalized offers or to identify users who are at risk of churn (cancellation of subscription) and take measures to retain them.
Here are several examples of using propensity scoring:
Even though many SaaS companies are aware of the benefits of using propensity scoring, just a few are able to utilize advanced ML algorithms to advance their GTM motions. Several challenges need to be tackled:
Overall, generating accurate propensity scores requires a deep understanding of the data being used, a sophisticated modeling approach, and ongoing monitoring and refinement to ensure accuracy over time.
That’s where Intempt comes in.
We make it possible to collect all your customer data in one place, seamlessly build multiple predictive scoring models to monitor your entire customer base, and pipe those scores to engage your leads. With Intempt, you can find the users most likely to convert, accounts most likely to expand, and large accounts at risk of churning. You can then use Intempt’s Playbooks & Inbox functionality to route these leads to the right team.
For an expansion use case, you can hit the ground running in a few quick steps:
This can be as simple as your customers purchasing a new product, or adding more paid seats to their plan. If you only care about certain customers, add a filter to your goal, like market segment = enterprise.
Scoring thresholds allow you to assign labels to numeric scores (1-100) so you can group them based on any preferred way. By default, we break down the score by Low, Medium, and High, but you can use any other grouping logic. We also allow you to customize the score’s icon and color so you can identify your top opportunities immediately.
Once the model has been processed, you’ll see the top 25 success indicators that correlate with your expansion goal. Alongside this is a “shared by” percentage - This number tells you what percentage of already expanded customers share this same trait. Finally, a score between 1-100 will be assigned to all of your customers who have not yet reached your goal. As you can see, you’re able to both quickly score customers and explore indicators that drive those scores.
See any indicators with an extremely low “shared by” percentage? Or data that you know for a fact isn’t important?
The model allows you to have a real say in the matter. Simply refine the model as it processes to get rid of any data points that you don’t want Intempt to consider in your score. The result? Full visibility into exactly what data is powering your expansion scores.
Intempt makes the hard part (acting on the data) easy by automatically scoring your customers who have not yet expanded and surfacing that score in the Playbook builder. Simply create a new Playbook and set your trigger conditions using the desired score.
Pro Tip: Use Intempt’s pre-made “High” bucket to automatically capture any customers who score between 80-100.
Once your conditions are set, add an action that your team will feel equipped to follow up on and craft a plan to expand. For example, send a Slack DM to the Account Owner or CSM, accompanied by important contextual data that they can use to construct their message.
Even better, add an additional action to port that ready-to-expand customer to a HubSpot list or Intempt journey if you want to automate the communication piece as well.
