Real-Time LTV for value-based optimization (VBO)

Using Ocurate's real-time LTV, we have built technology to increase the ROI of Google/Facebook/TikTok acquisition campaigns by 10%+.

Over the last years, Google, Facebook, and TikTok have built out capabilities to submit different bids for each prospect via their ad APIs.

With real-time LTV, we can now leverage this technology to optimize our clients’ Google/Facebook customer acquisition campaigns on customer LTV vs. first purchase only: Value-based optimization (VBO).

Our average lift in LTV across our clients is 10%.

What is VBO?

VBO is technology for submitting individual bids for impressions in real time, based on customer value. This allows consumer-facing companies to acquire more valuable customers at less spend, and increase their LTV:CAC by 10%+

What do you need VBO for?

VBO is made possible by three pieces of technology Ocurate has built:

(1) Curated streams of website behavior data related to LTV for each client, collected by Ocurate’s OcuboostTM automatically and fully anonymized 

(2) LTV predictions in real time based on this engagement and sales data with 90%+ accuracy for every individual

(3) Real-time Integration into ad APIs through the click IDs, collected by OcuboostTM

How can Ocurate prove the ROI?

Ocurate proves ROI through a matched market test. We split part of an existing campaign that generates sufficient conversions into treatment and control arm alongside regions that perform similarly on all relevant metrics. The control is set up as an exact replica of the existing campaign, and the treatment arm will move bidding strategy and conversion action to LTV. Our KPI is the difference in LTV:CAC

Customers Love Ocurate

Ed Bailey
CTO, Good Clean Love

"Ocurate is paying off and will continue to over the next two quarters – and the next two years,” said Ed Bailey of Good Clean Love. “A third of my marketing budget was reallocated toward the predicted most valuable customers. The results have shown astounding ROI already. I cannot believe how much we wasted on people who never intended to buy. We couldn’t decipher who could and would be the right client for us without it."

Josh Tepper

"This is fantastic, this is exactly what I think we've been missing for a long time and it's going to help us minimize our spends, it's going to help us be more targeted in our marketing, in our partnerships, and everything else we do"

"With Ocurate, we easily identified high-value customers at risk of churn. By creating a custom campaign, we were able to reduce the churn rate of this audience by 16%. Not only were Ocurate’s predictive analytics accurate, but we were able to quickly see meaningful business impact. "

Andrew Grant

“I am bullish on Ocurate’s ability to help us focus on the right customer based on their superior data and AI tied to predicted value. Initial tests have shown a much smaller error in Ocurate's model compared to our existing solution.“

Increasing the number of High LTV customers is the holy grail for B2C brands

For most B2C companies, 80% of revenue is generated by only 20% of customers

Mathematically, this means High LTV customers deliver 16 times more revenue than regular customer

Acquiring more High LTV customers systematically has huge business ROI

For most consumer companies, every point increase in the High LTV rate* increases revenue by 4%+
