The American Red Cross is the premier emergency response and relief organization and leading supplier of blood and blood products – yet with a need for blood on the rise, donations had steadily decreased by 10%. They called on North Highland to develop an analytic business model to accurately predict a donor’s lifetime value in blood units. Piloting of the model revealed that a mere 1% increase in donor retention would conservatively yield an additional $10M in annual revenue. This enabled the Red Cross to realign its marketing strategies to focus on retention of donors rather than donation frequency.
