What is Marketing Mix Modeling?

Marketing Mix Modeling (MMM) was introduced in the 1980s to match spikes and dips in sales to actions taken in marketing (as well as external factors).

  • Make data-driven decisions about how to optimize your media budget
  • Works even for hard to measure channels like TV, podcasts, and influencers
  • No user data needed, so it's not affected by iOS14, GDPR, and adblockers

Previously used mostly by Fortune 500 advertisers spending millions on SuperBowl ads, MMM is now being reinvented by companies like Facebook (Meta), Uber, and Google.

"The real value in this course is that Michael is an actual practitioner - he's not just teaching MMM, but a better way to handle large marketing data sets."

Conrad Wadowski
Founder of Advice, Teachable, GrowHack

"It's rare to have a marketing genius like Mike taking the time to share his secret weapons which allowed him to scale a 45+ person world-class agency. Trust me, his course is worth every cent."

Johannes Radig
Growth Marketer at PayPal, Truly and mentor at 500Startups

"“The marketing process requires a) smart strategy, b) well thought out tests, then c) collection and analysis of data. Part c) quickly becomes very time-consuming - and there’s only so much you can do in Excel. That’s where Vexpower comes in.”"

Will Bancroft
Head of Marketing at Newswhip, Openfolio
“The best part was that I could complete it in 2 hours. I got buy-in from my team to run the experiment and we went live with it within the same week. No month-long courses to comb through.”
