Unsubscribe Risk AI


With Cordial's Unsubscribe Risk AI, you can see which customers are at risk of churning based on their past four weeks of interaction behavior. Equipped with that information, you could exclude contacts with a high risk of churn or include those with low risk of churn to maximize the impact of your messaging and the efficiency of your process. Unsubscribe Risk is available for email, SMS, and mobile app (push).

Use cases

  • Use Unsubscribe Risk AI alongside Purchase Propensity AI to pinpoint cross-selling opportunities for contacts with low unsubscribe risk who are likely to make a purchase.
