Customer success story

Overcoming challenges while building Marketing Mix Models

Data Availability

Privacy laws and GDPR compliance make it hard to get customer identification or marketing data across channels / geographies

Incremental Sales

Imperative to utilize all major factors that impact base sales and attribute incremental sales to various marketing efforts

Data Flexibility

Models that are restricted to limited historical data often fail as they don’t provide broad enough insights


Undermining the impact of an independent variable from coinciding marketing activities

Lag Impact

The model should also be able to calculate the delayed impact of a marketing activity or campaign

Non Linear Effects

Different marketing campaigns can have complex relationships with sales, rather than linear impact


Marketing mix modeling gives marketers a 360 degree view of their marketing efforts to improve marketing ROI and tie those investments back to an increase in sales. Marketing mix modeling helps optimize marketing budgets by identifying the campaigns that have created an impact previously. With insights into past spending and business performance, marketing mix modeling helps cut down costs on marketing campaigns that are not working. Insights on past performances also help companies in sales forecasting by allocating success to key factors. In addition, artificial intelligence and machine learning are quickly becoming a part of marketing mix modeling that enables predictive analysis of future marketing strategies and prepare for multiple variables with a plan ahead of time.

As a statistical and ML-driven marketing method to determine the effectiveness of marketing campaigns, marketing mix modeling takes into account data from different marketing strategies to glean meaningful insights. It also measures a number of variables such as pricing, promotion, economics, competitiveness, and seasonality that affect marketing efforts directly or indirectly to accurately measure marketing ROI and its impact on sales.

Companies can approach marketing mix modeling through a powerful real-time simulation, and optimization software to conduct ‘what-if scenarios’ across a variety of business situations for scenario planning. They can also incorporate a rich set of customized data into predictive statistical models to gain a clear picture of their marketing efforts. Companies can identify issues and resolve them at the earliest to enhance the value of their marketing programs to align with overall organizational objectives. Companies can get an integrated approach to marketing mix methodology including data management, predictive modeling, and more to unravel market trends and insights to help them with improving future sales.

The marketing mix is comprised of four fundamental elements, commonly known as the "4 Ps"

Product: This component focuses on the tangible or intangible goods or services that a company offers to its customers.

Price: Pricing decisions involve determining the right pricing strategy, considering factors such as costs, competition, customer perceptions, and desired profit margins.

Promotion: It includes advertising, public relations, sales promotions, personal selling, and digital marketing efforts.

Place (Distribution): It involves decisions related to distribution channels, logistics, inventory management, warehousing, and retailing strategies.

These four components of the marketing mix are interlinked and require meticulous integration to establish a coherent and impactful marketing strategy.

Cannibalization within the context of marketing mix modeling refers to the unintended impact of a new product on the sales or market share of an existing product, with far-reaching consequences for overall business outcomes. This phenomenon triggers a redistribution of revenue streams, potentially challenging the profitability of affected products. It also influences brand perception and loyalty. The shift in market share dynamics requires strategic planning to anticipate and mitigate negative consequences, ensuring that the introduction of new products enhances, rather than hinders, overall business success.
