The Business Challenge
Despite its promising growth prospects, identifying the right channels to target customers is of utmost importance for healthcare companies today, as ‘marketing’ as a core business function has turned out to be more customer-centric and value-driven. With leading manufacturers of prosthetics striving to strike the perfect balance, many are unaware that advanced marketing mix modeling solutions can help them target the right customers and drive greater profits by optimizing marketing spend.
With the marketing spend highly concentrated in specific local market segments, the client- a leading prosthetics manufacturing company realized that it lacked a consistent spending structure due to which they were unable to quantify the success of their marketing campaigns. To tackle this issue, they needed a full-suite marketing mix modeling solution for their offerings in the American market segment. By leveraging marketing mix modeling solutions, they were looking at quantifying the impact of their online and offline sales channels, gauge ROI of their promotional activities, optimize spend, and gain insights into cross-channel attribution between digital and traditional marketing platforms.
The challenges faced by the prosthetics manufacturer included:
- Complex and non-granular marketing spend data
- Uneven and inconsistent data in multiple formats
- No set approach to data normalization
- Lack of an unbiased estimate of marketing effectiveness
- Lack of effective territory alignment
