“The legacy that he (and other old-school direct marketers) gave us is the still-powerful rubric of RFM: recency, frequency, monetary value.

The “F” and the “M” are obvious. You didn’t need any science for that. The “R” part is the most interesting, because it wasn’t obvious that recency, or the time of the last transaction, should even belong in the triumvirate of key measures, much less be first on the list. But it was discovered that customers who did stuff recently, even if they didn’t do a lot, were more valuable than customers who hadn’t been around for a while. That was a big surprise.”
