  1. Thanks again, Kevin, for providing insight and a user-friendly approach to basic analytics. So if forecasting is this easy, what's your take on what the economy will be doing the remainder of this year?? :)

    Thanks Kevin,
    this looks really useful. I will be most interested to run the numbers for our business.

  3. Hi Sally, thanks for the message. I wish forecasting the economy was easy. It has to improve, the collapse and the election last fall caused big trouble. I can't imagine things being worse than that.

    Derek, thank you, let me know what you learn if it can be shared.

    how did you calculate the 325k lapsed customers in 2010?

  5. On page 4, you have 300,000 lapsed customers, 90% did not purchase. 300,000 * 0.90 = 270,000.

    On page 4, you have 100,000 existing customers, 55% did not purchase. 100,000 * 0.55 = 55,000.

    270,000 lapsed customers not purchasing plus 55,000 existing customers not purchasing yields 325,000 lapsed customers in 2010!
