Challenges Along the Customer Journey

Why LatentView Analytics for Subscription?

The LatentView Subscription Value Proposition Framework is designed to place where the multitude of subscription categories sit according to the value they offer consumers amidst the broader array of choices. While individual brands within categories may have a different placement across quadrants, the category largely sits in a particular quadrant. More importantly, the framework provides both short-term and long-term measures for what companies need to do to strengthen their subscription service offers.

The subscription business landscape can be envisioned as a rectangle divided into four quadrants. Different subscription categories fall somewhere among these quadrants based on two factors aligned with the vertical and horizontal axes: “barrier to switch” (vertical axis) and “involvement” (horizontal axis), respectively.

  • Barrier to switch refers to how easily subscribers can jump ship based on how many competitors exist and the degree to which a subscription service is delivered digitally. Digital products are easier to switch out compared to a physical product that requires greater effort to switch. As represented on the vertical axis, the barrier to switch goes from very low at the bottom to very high at the top.
     
  • Involvement refers to how much time, information, or money is required for a customer to choose and maintain a subscription service. As shown on the horizontal axis, this goes from low involvement on the far left to high involvement on the far right.

Focus on habit forming (usage)

  • Increase flexibility through multiple pricing tiers and/or product add-ons
  • Drive convenience and affordability

Longer term focus on offering expansion, entering new markets. Watch out for substitutes or new entrants

Reduce post buying dissonance

  • Branding is very important
  • Personalized selling
  • Customization
  • High engagement pre and post sales
  • Maximize benefits from the product/service for customer

Longer term focus on product innovation and growth through acquisitions

Focus on value for money

  • Build brand awareness to stand out
  • Create product and user experience differentiation between company & competitors
  • Drive product usage
  • Provide incentives/ rewards programs
  • Make cancellation/downgrade/pause easy

Longer term focus on owning the value chain or broadening the offerings. Watch out for new entrants

Focus on end-to-end customer experience

  • Personalization is important
  • Give consumers options to buy additional product (add-ons with sub.box)
  • Provide choice to downgrade subscription tier or have easy to cancel process
  • Customer satisfaction is important to off set higher price
  • Build a community of followers and advocates

Longer term focus on both vertical and horizontal integration. Watch out for new entrants
