    The True Value of Propensity-to-Buy Modeling

    How Can Propensity Modeling Optimize Your Go-to-Market Strategy?

    Propensity models use past customer behaviors and various internal and external variables to predict what actions customers will likely take in the future. These models are used to guide data-driven sales strategies and improve sales efficiency by helping sales leaders prioritize accounts that are most likely to make a purchase, cancel their service, or expand their business.  

    A propensity-to-buy model is used to predict the probability that a prospective customer will purchase a product or service based on factors such as their location, industry, and size, as well as data from the company's past sales performance. This historical data may include information about past sales in certain markets, the sales plays that have most often resulted in successful deals in the past, and how the company compares to its competitors in terms of sales.
