Take a Look At the Movie Billboard and Our Recommended Titles
Inevitably, content discovery is an essential part to engage your audience: users may churn if they perceive you don’t have a compelling content offering relevant to them. Irrelevant recommendations and inefficient search tools can be understood as a lack of content, regardless of your investment.

There are different recommendation algorithms available in the market: user rating -thumbs up/down or stars-; automatic rating based on completion rate of watched content; similar titles and genre; what other users have seen; or combinations of the above-listed. The right call of your recommendation engine can make a significant difference to proactively and targetedly promote content to increase customer satisfaction and raise brand awareness to attract new customers. Your NPS (net promoter score) could benefit from it too! YOUBORA’s SmartLab module allows you to run your own lab to apply A/B or multivariate testing to improve content recommendation efficiency to increase consumption. Users can be precisely segmented (by consumption levels, premium vs ad-based accounts, or next month churners) to determine which engines are more successful.
