Services

  • Marketing Investment Portfolio Optimization helps companies to arrive at correct marketing budget globally, in each region, across countries and in each product category. Portfolio optimization also optimizes investment between direct product marketing and overarching brand advertising. This marketing portfolio optimization is driven by combination of actual measurement of historic marketing performance, market trend data and the company's management knowledge about future market events.
  • Marketing Mix Optimization suggests the best allocation of marketing investment across marketing channels—mass media (TV, Internet, newspapers, radio, outdoor, etc.), direct communication (mail, e-mail, mobile, etc.), point of sale marketing, promotions, sales force and other marketing vehicles. This optimization is informed by measurements of historic marketing responsiveness and is adjusted for anticipated changes. We incorporate forecasting in the optimization by applying our Future-view method—a proprietary process in which we extract client management's knowledge about the future and transform historic marketing responsiveness estimates to incorporate anticipated future events.
  • Marketing Campaign Optimization lets us help our clients to design effective and efficient marketing campaign plans. We use measured performance results from historic campaigns to create the most effective and efficient marketing activities. We help our clients to find the "sweet spot" in media weights and timing by ensuring that the communication level is large enough to break through the market clutter and at the same time does not waste money by pushing investments into diminishing returns.
