Research: Bundles driving acquisition and retention

Parks Associates, in partnership with Bango, has released  its new white paper Effective Bundling: Pain Points and Expectations from Subscription Leaders, featuring custom primary research of industry leaders across the streaming video, music, education, and productivity markets to assess the effectiveness of bundling strategies.

Parks Associates consumer research finds entertainment services lead the subscription economy for US internet households:

  • 89 per cent have a streaming video service
  • 32 per cent subscribe to a streaming audio service
  • 20 per cent subscribe to a gaming service
  • 16 per cent have a gym membership

“Partnerships are increasingly driving acquisition and retention,” said Kristen Hanich, Research Director, Parks Associates. “Partnerships enhance brand awareness and market reach, reduce customer churn, and remove friction from the user sign-up process, in addition to increasing overall customer satisfaction.”

“Successful partnerships also don’t need to be one-off deals – investing in long-term integrations, particularly with telcos, may pay dividends,” Hanich concluded.
