SMARTmodel is a complete circulation, subscription, membership, and financial modeling system for magazines, newsletters and membership businesses. Our intuitive and unique system is a must have tool for planning and budgeting all revenue and cost centers of your business including circulation, advertising sales and ancillary revenue streams.
SMARTmodel allows you to budget your entire business with one structured planning system. You can quickly and easily change and manipulate assumptions and results to examine "what-if" scenarios. For example, forecast the long-term impact of adopting new pricing schemes, adding or eliminating circulation sources, revising ad sales forecasts, or making issue frequency changes. PLUS, easily actualize your model by using automated feeds from your fulfillment system.
Developing a sound circulation marketing plan is the foundation for any successful publishing business. With the SMARTmodel Circulation Optimizer you can develop circulation promotion plans; budget expenses; project circulation ratebase and print orders; review promotion timing issues, spending, and price/term/offer options; and determine profitable advertising rate base goals while optimizing circulation profitability. The SMARTmodel report generator is powerful, user-friendly, yet highly flexible -- your circulation and financial reports can be customized with as much, or as little, detail as desired and results exported to other systems.
With SMARTmodel you can develop a total business budget including all revenue and associated cost centers such as circulation, advertising sales, list rentals, production and printing, editorial, and departmental expenses. Run detailed cash-flow forecasts and P&L statements. You can initialize and automatically update a budget model using SMARTmodel's Fulfillment Data Feed directly from your fulfillment sources, including actualizing subscription production, price/term mixes, and apply newly actualized assumptions to continue in future periods.
