Experian Marketing Services Introduces Next Product PurchaseSM

New model forecasts what a household will buy next and through which channel

Schaumburg, Ill., May 4 2009 — Experian Marketing Services today announced the launch of Next Product PurchaseSM, a model designed specifically for catalog marketers to help them pinpoint future products and purchase channels at a household level.

Flexible by design, this customizable model accurately predicts the next product a catalog shopper is likely to purchase, as well as the channel through which that purchase will be made. This insight helps marketers better manage these challenging economic times by drawing upon proven transactional product and channel data.

“Engaging customers is getting more difficult for catalogers who are faced with reduced resources and the proliferation of online commerce,” said Denise Hopkins, vice president of Marketing and Product Development for Experian. “Next Product Purchase predicts the next product your customers are going to purchase and through which channel they will make the purchase. Such pinpoint accuracy will increase client loyalty, improve response rates and, most importantly, drive revenue.”

Next Product Purchase helps catalog marketers make the most of their marketing budgets by delivering more relevant offers, which enhances one-to-one relationships and improves customer loyalty. Next Product Purchase leverages Experian’s Z-24® Catalog Database, which currently contains information on more than 110 million households and a prospecting universe within 24 months of 35 million households.
