- Predictive Technology: Going beyond CPA
Wednesday Jul 19, 2017
Speaking at the OMMA LA conference, Sujay Kar, head of data science of TechStyle Fashion Group, says predictive technology is a key for the marketing efforts of its fashion business-- even allowing it to spend more on advertising.
The group, whose brands include Fabletics, JustFab, ShoeDazzle and FabKids, has 4 million VIP members, 80% repeatconsumers, and 65 million products shipped.
TechStyle spends close to $180 million in advertising -- with 24,000 active creatives on Facebook, 36 unique TV commercials(150 iterations that are tested), and 3,300 email creatives.
Kar says the company can predict consumer behavior and its value over a number of years.
“It has been harder to optimize on CPA [cost per acquisition/action]; CPAs are going up,” he says. But Kar says the company uses other measures, such as lifetime value ofthe customer, to allow it to shift advertising. Some of this comes from third party data providers.
As a result, he says “we can spend 20% more in a particularchannel.” He says these predictive measures go beyond cost per action.

- NY agency called Justice Center may lack power to prosecute
By DAVID KLEPPER, Associated Press - Wednesday Sep 20, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York state agency launched four years ago to protect the disabled from abuse and neglect was staffed with a team of investigators and prosecutors empowered to bring criminal cases against alleged wrongdoers. But it lacked one key thing, according to three recent court rulings: the legal authority to actually prosecute anyone.That has potentially put dozens of convictions in jeopardy and threatens to undermine the mission of the agency, known as the Justice Center, to protect the 1 million disabled, addicted and mentally ill in state care.
