Now marketers can chart their sales performance against this blended set of validated economic predictors. Marketing solutions provider ACG/Marketing Solutions is helping US marketers to gain sales at reduced expense by taking advantage of leading economic indicators, making available for the first time a custom economic forecast tool that will overlay a client’s sales history on a time line chart that will relate historical sales fluctuations to a balanced set of government and private sector predictive indices. Advance knowledge of sustained higher-level sales performance by product category allows the product manger to develop a timeline for marketing efforts and a strategy as to how deep or shallow to move into the market.

ACG/Marketing Solutions has unveiled ProAct, a time line chart that will relate historical sales to a proprietary set of predictive data. Product category marketing strategy to target higher revenues is an advantage US marketers can now achieve via advance insight enabled by ProAct.

The attached ProAct chart presents the underlying predictive indicators and their intersection with retail sales over a six year period. Indices have been weighted to better delineate points of intersection.

The tracked indices have been scrutinized in their relationship with one another to avoid bias in data collection methodology. The process of incorporating indexes from different disciplines is not fixed, but is continually adapting to shifts in the overall world economy as it impacts the US.

When a client provides monthly or quarterly sales performance data to ACG/Marketing Solutions, and the overlay of client data demonstrates a strong degree of conformance to the historical indices, the marketer is able to establish an optimum marketing time-line over which to distribute their marketing dollar.

According to Dave White, project leader for the new charting service ProAct, “The intersection points on the ProAct charts are highly reliable in that for the last ten years, the downturn of the predictive indicators, when they transverse the trend line for retail sales, are consistently 2-3 months ahead of an improvement or downturn in retail sales. Logically, for a client whose sales are collinear with the retail sales trend line, these dynamic charts offer an excellent predictive tool”.

For seventeen years, ACG/Marketing Solutions, an Illinois corporation, has been at the forefront of pioneering unique data applications to provide marketing intelligence to their clients.
