As marketers, setting the budget plan for each budgeting cycle is probably the most consequential decision we make year in and year out. Yet, it is a  complex decision that requires a lot of guesstimates and judgment calls. 

With so much at stake and so little hard evidence, oftentimes we end up second guessing:

  • Have we allocated the budget optimally across different media channels, both digital and traditional?
  • Have we allocated the budget optimally across different markets/lines of business/brands/products?
  • Have we allocated the budget optimally across days of the week and weeks/months/quarters of the year?
  • Will we be able to hit the lead generation goals/sales targets with the budget plan?
  • What would happen to leads/sales if we were to increase or decrease the budget by certain amounts and reallocate it?
  • Ultimately, how can we convince the powers that be that, all things considered, our budget plan is optimal and the money will be well spent?
