In the global market, trends and patterns keep changing every single day. Organizations are well aware of this fact as they continue to deal with big data in order to maintain the prices and drive profitability. Marketers often shy away from big data and market research, which is the backbone for an efficient marketing strategy. Big data may sound complex and difficult, but in reality it is merely collating, storing and analyzing huge data that facilitates strategic decision making and yields accurate insights and positive outcomes. Big data has a huge role to play in the success of marketing mix modeling, as MMM highly relies on historical decisions and present trends in order to predict the marketing effectiveness of past, present and future marketing campaigns. But how you ask? Here’s how.

Big Data has a Bigger Impact on Marketing Mix Modeling

Often marketers make a mistake of relying solely on big data rather than leveraging analytics to interpret them. Big data just provides access to a large pool of structured and unstructured data from a variety of sources, which could be both historical as well as real-time data. Whereas marketing mix modeling and other related marketing analytics tools leverage this big data to provide insights to marketers to improve their marketing efforts and perform better. Marketing professionals know for a fact that if you don’t measure your marketing activities and campaigns, you can’t pinpoint the poor result to a single factor. Hence, the solution is to not isolate from big data and marketing mix modeling instead they should adapt it to create exceptional marketing programs and deliver superior results.

Acquire, Engage, Retain and Build Customer Loyalty

Marketers know that it is easier to retain an existing customer rather than making efforts to acquire a new one. With big data, defining target customer segments and acquisition has become easy as marketers can easily interpret the customers buying pattern by charting their journey through various touchpoints. It also helps build engagement between customer and the brand by analyzing the customers interact with the digital platform or brick and mortar store. Marketing mix modeling can leverage these benefits in order to improve customer experience, retain them and build loyalty by offering tailor made suggestions, offers and promotional campaigns.

Optimizing Marketing Mix and Marketing Spend

Traditional performance measurement tactics cannot help measure the impact and effectiveness of marketing campaigns. However, with the advent of marketing mix modeling, other advanced marketing analytics coupled with big data analytics, companies can keep a track of the marketing return on investment (MROI) of past, present and future marketing activities and thereby forecast its effect on sales. Further, marketing mix modeling and big data allows companies to evaluate their marketing spend and allocate budget effectively in order to yield a higher ROI. marketing mix modeling enables marketers to optimize the marketing mix and its variables – Product, Price, Promotion and Place (the 4PS).
