Advanced-Mobile Marketing&Analysis (1-Day)
We are reshaping the mobile marketing world, with a fresh approach to consumer targeting.
The problem; if you are a grocery manufacturer or retailer, there is a limited amout of information you can get from legacy analysis providers who have low quality analysis at a very high price.
The retail analysis business is massive (14B€ Europe), and so is the mobile retail marketing business (8B€). This is a massive opportunity.
We come from a digital business analysis background and wanted to apply our expertise in service design and data analysis to the problem of retail consumer analysis.
Last year we noticed that grocery shopping was a highly non-optimal process. Consumers would often miss offers due to persistently shopping in a single outlet. It seemed obvious to me that this was distinctly odd, as retail chains are often co-located!
We performed an analysis, whereby we standardised our shopping lists on a weekly basis, gathered all price information from the three largest grocery stores, then we compared how the cheapest one-store option compared to the optimized multi-store option.
We were pleased to see that the saving was in the region of 25% on weekly groceries!
This is the hook that keeps users on our service, when they regularly use our service, we get the best behavioural and future demand data possible.
We then architected a service, built it into an easy to use App, and approached industry customers. Offering high end analysis of consumer behaviour, and presented the marketing opportunity.
We secured customer contracts for the analysis and marketing, and proceeded to find funding, hire more developers and build Avansera for real.
