This Course Includes:
1. Splitting spend across channels
You've inherited a marketing mix model, but how do you make decisions from it? You have a simple channel mix, but it's not clear how you're supposed to divide the budget between Facebook and TikTok.
2. Choosing your place on the curve
Based on the diminishing returns in your model, there should be an optimal choice of where to allocate spend... but how to find it? Let's start by plotting the response curves for Facebook and TikTok.
3. Automated media budget optimizer
You may not know the math, but thankfully someone else does, and you can use their solution. Use the SciPy Python library to optimize your media spend based on the diminishing returns and coefficients in your model.
