How to Revise Your Marketing Mix Model to Capture COVID-19 Impact?

COVID-19 has shocked the world and inevitably transformed how people work, shop and live. It not only sent economies spinning but also significantly impacted on how a wide range of advertisers are doing marketing. Influencer Marketing Hub recently unveiled COVID-19 Marketing Report saying 69% of brands indicated that they will decrease Ad Spend in 2020. And 74% of the firms they surveyed have slowed down their social media posting.

Beyond all doubt, slashing marketing spend will ensure short term survival and send grappled business a slim chance of recovery. However, the rigorous measurement of your marketing performance and having every one dollar drive more sales are way more critical and essential than ever. In today’s post, We are going to talk about how to better evaluate marketing efficiency under COVID-19 pandemic.

Methodologies to Measure Marketing Efficiency

To evaluate the marketing performance and optimize channel mix, the most important question we need to answer entails what Return on Investment (ROI) we are getting for the money we spend on each channel. Marketing Mix Models and Multi-Touch Attribution are popular techniques that tend to provide the depth of insights required to answer this question.

I am more inclined to go with the Marketing Mix Model to evaluate marketing ROI during COVID-19 pandemic for two reasons.

First and foremost, Multi-Touch Attribution is a bottom-up approach to evaluating marketing efficacy. It is focused on online marketing and sales and better at analyzing real-time user level data. Rather than evaluating every touchpoint user takes towards final conversion, Marketing Mix Modeling takes more of a top-down and macro-level view. For this reason, not only marketing related factors, but also factors such as macro economy, seasonality, weather, and the competitive impact can be examined and captured. From this standpoint, the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic is not within everyone’s normal control and MMM can better capture the effect from it.

Moreover, MTA is mostly focused on the digital ecosystem while MMM can easily cover more offline channels. In light of Coronavirus, people are stuck at home. This consequently drove TV viewership up. According to the latest forecast from eMarketer, traditional TV is expected to add 8.3 million U.S. viewers this year, and this would be the first time that traditional TV viewing has increased since 2012👀. As a result, MMM may be doing a better job to measure the efficacy of TV performance compared to MTA.

Data Scientist Creates Python Script To Track Available Slots For Covid Vaccinations

Bhavesh Bhatt, Data Scientist from Fractal Analytics posted that he has created a Python script that checks the available slots for Covid-19 vaccination centres from CoWIN API in India. He has also shared the GitHub link to the script.

The YouTube content creator posted, “Tracking available slots for Covid-19 Vaccination Centers in India on the CoWIN website can be a bit strenuous.” “I have created a Python script which checks the available slots for Covid-19 vaccination centres from CoWIN API in India. I also plan to add features in this script of booking a slot using the API directly,” he added.

We asked Bhatt how did the idea come to fruition, he said, “Registration for Covid vaccines for those above 18 started on 28th of April. When I was going through the CoWIN website – https://www.cowin.gov.in/home, I found it hard to navigate and find empty slots across different pin codes near my residence. On the site itself, I discovered public APIs shared by the government [https://apisetu.gov.in/public/marketplace/api/cowin] so I decided to play around with it and that’s how I came up with the script.”

Talking about the Python script, Bhatt mentioned that he used just 2 simple python libraries to create the Python script, which is datetime and requests. The first part of the code helps the end-user to discover a unique district_id. “Once he has the district_id, he has to input the data range for which he wants to check availability which is where the 2nd part of the script comes in handy,” Bhatt added.

How The New AI Model For Rapid COVID-19 Screening Works?

With the current pandemic spreading like wildfire, the requirement for a faster diagnosis can not be more critical than now. As a matter of fact, the traditional real-time polymerase chain reaction testing (RT-PCR) using the nose and throat swab has not only been termed to have limited sensitivity but also time-consuming for operational reasons. Thus, to expedite the process of COVID-19 diagnosis, researchers from the University of Oxford developed two early-detection AI models leveraging the routine data collected from clinical reports.

In a recent paper, the Oxford researchers revealed the two AI models and highlighted its effectiveness in screening the virus in patients coming for checkups to the hospital — for an emergency checkup or for admitting in the hospital. To validate these real-time prediction models, researchers used primary clinical data, including lab tests of the patients, their vital signs and their blood reports.

Led by a team of doctors — including Dr Andrew Soltan, an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Professor David Clifton from Oxford’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering, and Professor David Eyre from the Oxford Big Data Institute — the research initiated with developing ML algorithms trained on COVID-19 data and pre-COVID-19 controls to identify the differences. The study has been aimed to determine the level of risk a patient can have to have COVID-19.

How Is TCS Helping With COVID-19 Testing In India

COVID-19 cases have only been on the rise. With the non-availability of effective drugs and vaccines, one of the effective ways to control it is to detect it early in patients. However, the task is easier said than done. While a large number of test kits are being produced, they are not enough to conduct testing in large numbers.

Government-run body, C-CAMP or Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platform, has been a key enabler in driving COVID-19 testing as it has been aggressively building, managing and scaling the ecosystem of MSMEs to produce test kits indigenously. However, they might not be enough.
