Are you being asked to look at or consider MMM but don’t have a strong background in the subject?

Over the last 20 years, the marketing industry has focused heavily on cookie based digital attribution techniques such as multi touch attribution (MTA). But since 2020, we have seen a significant move away from cookie-based tracking and an increased focus on Marketing and Media Mix Modelling (MMM). This shift means that we now have a large cohort of marketing professionals who do not have a good working knowledge of MMM.

If you are a member of this cohort then our CMO’s Guide to MMM is designed specifically for you.

We will cover the following topics from our MMM training course with a specific focus on the needs of more senior marketing managers who need to be able to interpret MMM results correctly and report them to senior colleagues in a way that builds confidence in the MMM approach and its outputs.
