James Hewes: When it comes to direct-to-consumer revenue strategies around digital subscriptions, what is it that publishers should be looking to achieve?

Carola York: The best subscription marketing teams use data for end-to-end measurement and messaging. They build an in-depth understanding of the entire customer journey. They know how and where to focus customer engagement efforts. And they apply the latest in automation technology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. But getting the right technology in place can be confusing, and then properly wiring it together can be a real struggle. And most subscription marketers are not technical gurus, or mathematicians, or data scientists so need some support. 

  • Emerging. In these organisations, there’s likely to be more use of first-party data, targeting audiences based on their awareness or purchase intent. There will be greater testing happening, but it’s still likely to be on a channel-by-channel basis. And they’ll mainly use last-click attribution. If they use an agency, there’s likely to be a more integrated approach than at the Nascent level.
  • Multi-Moment. Very few publishers or even leading brands are at this level. Those who reach this have a holistic customer view with fully linked online and offline data. They use personalised creative, coordinated and sequenced across channels, which is automated and delivered ‘in-flight’, determined by business outcome or lifetime value KPIs.
