CASE STUDY

Competitor Analysis & Customer Journey Intelligence

Overview

A US-based customer data platform (CDP) startup approached us for help in a highly competitive market. We understood the challenges the startup was facing and dove into a deep market analysis to get a clear picture of the competitive landscape and uncover opportunities for growth.

Through close collaboration with the startup, we analised key competitors and developed a customised sales strategy that leveraged client's strengths and set it apart from its competitors. The approach emphasised high-value customer targeting, strong relationship-building, and thought leadership to differentiate the platform in the market.

We provided ongoing training and support to the client's sales team, ensuring the successful execution of the strategy. The results were impressive. Within 6 months, the client experienced a significant  20% (!) increase in sales, establishing itself as a leader in the market and laying the foundation for continued growth and success.

Approach

We conducted an in-depth analysis of the startup's direct competitors using a mix of research methodologies, including competitor analysis and customer surveys. Therefore, we were able to identify potential customers' preferences and recognise areas of improvement that the client should undertake to optimise the customer journey using frameworks such as customer journey mapping.

 

Using business theories such as Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and generated data, we then restructured the customer journey using AI to meet customers' needs better, aiming to increase overall satisfaction and engagement with the product:

  1. Identifying key pain points

  2. Developing solutions for pain points

  3. Implementing strategies to improve the overall customer experience

 

In addition to restructuring the customer journey, we identified key areas for improvement within the client's own organisation that would enable the sales team to be more successful. This included changes such as improving communication strategies between managers and employees to increase transparency and accountability, setting up psychologically-positive incentives based on concrete goals rather than subjective assessments, and investing more resources into training programs for new hires. These initiatives were designed to motivate employees and improve their performance, ultimately leading to higher overall sales success for the business.

 

The efforts of our work paid off, and it was soon that the client's sales team saw positive results. Their performance improved due to increased knowledge on how to best approach different customer needs, and their morale skyrocketed with newfound enthusiasm towards achieving their goals. The success achieved by the client demonstrates the power of understanding the customer journey and implementing psychological changes within the team to drive growth.
