Let’s step back and look at some common touchpoints – Acquisition, Onboarding, Adoption, Retention, Advocacy, and Growth. Each of them can spawn a separate post or series of posts in itself, for now let’s just look at them from a high level.
When analyzing usage statistics for information to help with retention, I believe you need to look at usage by segment. Identify your Super Users as outliers – and segment them accordingly. You do want to keep them – they help you innovate, but look at them separately so that their behavior doesn’t impact thinking about the other segment of users. Then look at what the majority of the people are doing on the system. Try to make what they are doing as easy as possible. Though either the product or service solutions.
