Give your customers credit for their history

Attracting and retaining profitable customers is a challenge in today’s competitive credit card market. Understanding a consumer’s historical behavior is crucial to developing a strategy for the future. With Trend ViewSM from Experian, you can make the most appropriate — and profitable — offers to customers and prospects at precisely the right time.

Behavioral Insight

Trend View unlocks the power of trended data to help you progress from mass marketing to one-on-one target marketing by providing insight into the credit card usage patterns of your customers and prospects.

Powered by Experian Trended Data, Trend View attributes identify the following consumer behaviors:

  • Rate surfer — transfers balances from one credit card to another
  • Revolver — carries a credit card balance from month to month
  • Transactor — pays the entire or majority of credit card balance every month
  • Consolidator — transfers multiple credit card balances to one credit card or consolidation loan
  • Nonactivator — never uses credit card or only uses it once
  • Seasonal user — uses cards at specific times of the year

Use this insight to:

  • Avoid consumers who are likely to transfer their balances before you reach your breakeven point
  • Maximize profitability by targeting consumers who will activate and revolve balances
  • Build relationships with transactors by offering your best rewards programs
