CASE: Cross-selling Credit Insurance to Cardholders direct mail: .50, 1% response rate, avg balance $1000, 5% claim insurance, etc. Profitable? How make more profitable? What if response rate doubled but claims doubled? Make chart of profit curve, what does it mean if..., etc.

12 Answers

@ ghachla: The response rate is 1% that is 1 out of 100. I assumed 100 people are sent the mail. Hence the response rate is 1. As for the claim rate, the people who don't respond can't make claims. So out of the people who respond, the claim rate is 5% (i.e 1 person responds in 100 and out of that 1, 0.05 make the claim); Or to make it more clearer, if we assume 10000 people are sent the mail, 100 respond (because of the 1% response rate) and 5 out of the 100 make claims (because of the 5% claim rate).

Thanks for your response and guidance. I knew the revenue is monthly, but i thought claim rate is also monthly and hence calculated profit for each credit insurance sold per month. In light of your clarification Profit per card insurance per year = (10*12)-50-50 = 20$ per year If we chose to calculate per month, we will need to consider monthly claim rate as (5/12) and also amortize the marketing expense over next 12 month. Profit per card insurance per month = 10-(50/12)-(50/12)= (20/12)$ per month The profitability equation (per card per year) = 120x-10xy-50 For calculating any of the break even rates (x or y assuming 1 is known), 120x-10xy-50 = 0. For graph, P = 120x-10xy-50 Let me know if my analysis/answer is accurate and up to the mark. Thanks a lot for all your guidance. Less

Looks like I left out the price of the insurance: customers would pay 1% of monthly balance for insurance. Less

The company is losing 1 million subscribers every month. What are the possible reasons for losing subscribers? Given the company is losing subscribers at this pace, how long can the company continue, until it starts making loss?

10 Answers

25 months

12Bn Rev Per year 9BN cost per year Customer Loss per year = 1million *12 months = 12 million customers Revenue per customer per year = 36 + 7*12 = $120 Each year, company looses 1.44BN. = (12 million *120) To make a loss, company must loose 3BN 3BN/1.44BN = 2.083 years 2.083 years = 25 months. Less

25 months doesn't sound right... Revenue: $12 billion Costs: $9 billion Profit: $3 billion Customer lost/month = 1 million Revenue lost/month = (36/12 + 7) = $10 * 1 million = $10 million Break even = $3 billion / $10 million = 300 months 300 months / 12 = 25 years The only way I can see 25 months is if we assumed Ad Revenue is Annual and CANNOT be broken down to month average/customer. In that case Annual Revenue/Customer = 36 + (7 *12) = $120/customer Total lost revenue/month = 120 * 1 million = 120 million Breakeven = 3 billion / 120 million = 25 months Less
