About the Client
The client is a leading US-based medical device and pharma drugs manufacturer. The company wanted to better understand the impact of their marketing tactics on their new drug launch and its sales by linking and analyzing complex datasets using advanced marketing mix and multi touch attribution models.
The Business Challenge
In today’s digitally inclined world where online, influencer-based, and personalized promotions need to work parallelly to impact consumer decisions, businesses must identify channels that help them better connect with their customers in order to drive revenue. To succeed in doing so, businesses need to adopt a comprehensive, commercially-focused approach to marketing mix modeling which can help them gain an accurate read on the ROI of their marketing investments. Leveraging fact-based marketing mix modeling and multi touch attribution solutions to optimize marketing investments can also drive significant improvements in marketing investments.
The pharma company faced several challenges in transitioning one of its products from the prescription-based category to OTC.

The marketing mix modeling approach had to quantify the impact of their marketing campaigns and promotions on sales, measure ROI for each marketing channel, and provide cross-channel attribution between social and traditional channels for media mix planning.
