The lifetime value of DISH subscribers varies greatly. some stay with the service a long time, while others churn after only a year. With high subscriber acquisition costs, the marketing team wanted to begin optimizing their paid media for LTV — but they had to find a way to do so without losing scale.
Internally, DISH developed a methodology for predicting new subscriber LTV. Working with Invoca, DISH created closed-loop attribution enhanced with subscriber LTV. They could now pass this conversion data into Google Ads and begin considering LTV as a key signal while optimizing their bidding strategy.
With enhanced conversion data flowing, the team found that Google Smart Bidding was the best solution to efficiently account for the LTV signal in order to predict conversion rate. Using machine learning-based bidding, DISH could value each consumer, each creative, and each moment individually.
