Google has taken a big step forward in the world of marketing measurement with the introduction of Meridian, an open-source marketing mix model (MMM). This innovative tool empowers businesses to gain a deeper understanding of their marketing efforts and optimize campaign performance across various channels.

What is Marketing Mix Modeling (MMM)?

MMM is a statistical technique that analyzes the effectiveness of various marketing channels (search, social media, email, etc.) by measuring their impact on sales and customer behavior. Traditionally, data complexity and a lack of transparency have shrouded MMM in complexity, requiring significant data expertise.
