Effective marketing advertising and the creation of time series data for marketing measurements are possible for any organization with the help of marketing simulation tools. Various simulations such as competitor activity, sales seasonality, levels of ad effectiveness, advertising spend, and types of ad targeting can be built using marketing simulation technology on different marketing models. Additionally, marketing simulation provides a risk-free environment for experiments and also provides a platform for users to try different marketing strategies virtually. Furthermore, marketing simulation tools not only save money and time but also provides MBA students a platform to test theories and make decisions. A typical marketing simulation tool is to analyze and forecast in areas such as consumer behavior, brand loyalty, product switching, promotion response competitive behavior, new product introductions, and market behavior. Marketing simulation provides a mechanism to assess models based on experiments and observations of data of the consumer behavior, their complex purchase behavior, and their response to the various marketing techniques.
