SAS® Marketing Mix Advisor

Optimize your advertising and promotional mix

Analyze, forecast and optimize your mix of advertising and promotions more easily than ever. And boost your organizational effectiveness and profitability by understanding how best to deploy marketing and product resources across business units, channels, geographies, product lines and time horizons.


Reduce your risk.

Analyze your data more frequently for more accurate forecasts. Data and marketing mix model attributes are stored in a dynamic form for Web reports that are generated easily. Better forecasts allow you to anticipate changes in consumer buying patterns and respond quickly to market shifts.

Increase your profits.

Easily calculate the effects of specific marketing tactics across business units, channels, geographies, product lines and time horizons. And reduce marketing expenses by more frequently predicting how marketing campaigns will perform at different levels.

Strengthen your competitive advantage.

Consolidate results from multiple sources of marketing mix models, regardless of who built them. Intelligently store both insourced and outsourced model results so you can more readily choose vendors to meet your ever-changing needs.

Quantify the effect of media.

Understand the effect that paid, owned and earned media have on measures like brand awareness, cannibalization, stock levels, web and store traffic, and sales. Easily construct what-if scenarios for alternate mixes. And apply constraints – such as budget, advertising inventory capacity and price/promotional policies – to see what impact they will have on your mixes.
