Lift Charts

Lift charts demonstrate the predicted effectiveness of modeling.  The “flat” or random line (dark-dashed line) indicates the expected penetration of business-as-usual.  The steep (green) line indicates expected penetration from using the ranked list (from the model).  In the example below, prospects in the first demi-decile (top 5%) are expected to respond about 3.5 times as frequently as a “random” customer.  By utilizing the ranked list, fewer pieces can be mailed (to achieve a certain number of new customers) or more new customers can be found (for a given budget).  Conversely, you can learn who your worst prospects are, allowing you to stop expending marketing resources on them.
