How we can help
We power customer growth through creative and dynamic digital transformation strategies from conception to execution.
Building on the Financial Times' record of delivering trusted and valuable content, FT Strategies advises clients in Banking, Financial Services and Fintech on how to create compelling content strategies, drive engagement and maximise customer value. We specialise in content strategy, monetisation, engagement and retention, offering consulting expertise that will transform and future-proof your business.
Acquire new customers
We use data and metrics to build a picture of who your prospects are so you can identify, understand, attract and engage the right people and the right time. Our expert consultants will guide you through:
- Customer segmentation and persona development
- Content discovery and distribution strategies
- Lead generation and lead nurturing
- Audience engagement and diversification
- Editorial innovation and content strategy
Pricing can be a thorny topic. Charge too high and you won’t retain your customers. Charge too low and you’ll miss out on opportunities for growing your recurring revenue. How can you gauge your customers’ willingness to pay, increase ARPU through optimised pricing, and avoid cannibalisation? Our monetisation experts will help you understand:
- Price sensitivity and optimum price points
- Engagement-based and dynamic pricing
- Cross-selling and upselling existing customers
- Lifetime value modelling
We help financial organisations create a base of highly engaged customers, reduce churn, increase LTV and ARPU by defining exactly what engagement means to you, and building an analytical foundation to influence your customer’s engagement patterns. We specifically focus on:
- Defining your North Star metric
- Customer segmentation and personalisation strategies
- Creating a customer engagement programme
- Next best action modelling
- Measuring value using data and analytics
Boost Retention & Lifetime Value
Customers become loyal when they’re highly engaged and connected to your brand, mission and values. That’s why it’s crucial to understand where they are in the decision-making process, so you can predict triggers for churn and create a strong safety net at each step of the customer lifecycle. Our retentions solutions focus on:
- CRM and customer engagement strategies
- Loyalty and winback strategies
- Involuntary churn and payment optimisation
- Churn prediction and Lifetime value modelling
- Dynamic pricing and rightsizing
Wherever you are on your digital transformation journey, we can help you create a clear roadmap with key metrics to measure success along the way. Our digital transformation solutions include:
- An organisational diagnostic and cultural assessment
- A clear roadmap to accelerate transformation across your organisation
- Implementing a North Star methodology
- A capabilities assessment, so you know where to prioritise your resources for maximum results
- A strategy to build a recurring revenue model
This is a new form of consulting. You're coming with the brains and the FT experience. You're changing consulting for the better, I really mean it!
I cannot compare it to any other consulting project that I have engaged with before. The access to unique knowledge is inspiring and stimulates many old and new questions in my organisation.
The recommendations, experiments and quick wins that come out of our sessions are invaluable. Also, having access to experts has been great, particularly as we look to create our own RFV propensity model.
One of the most valuable consulting projects I've been involved with. The FTS team was incredibly knowledgeable and responsive as they guided us through the process.Analytics Manager
