There are said to be four main components of the modern marketing information system.

The four components are as follows:

· Internal reporting systems

Firstly, with any business it is greatly important to keep an eye on what is going on inside the business. A lot can be missed if the performance is not closely monitored and then analyzed. The internal reporting systems enable a company to always be aware of how they are performing as a team and what issues may need addressing.

· Marketing research systems

Market research has been one of the fundamental aspects of marketing for many years and its uses are just as valuable in today's world. The marketing research systems allow a company to really find out what their customers/potential customers think of the current trends and their views on certain items, or polices.

Marketing research can also delve into a customer's habits in the hope the company can spot a gap in the market or service; they believe they can deliver to the customer, which will benefit their usual routine.

· Marketing intelligence systems

The marketing intelligence systems are used to deal with the costs of running a marketing department and a business as a whole. It will process all the facts and figures delivering what needs to be spent where and what may be using too much money.

· Marketing models

Finally, the marketing models are another important aspect of the modern marketing information system. The marketing model will act as a concept or theory and a lot of campaigns will be built with this guidance in mind.
