How we work
Add more weight to your brand strategy through customer profiling
Building a successful brand is about more than just how it looks but how it makes you feel. Understanding what makes your audience tick is the first step towards appealing to them more affectively.
It all starts with a conversation. During this initial discovery phase we’ll meet with your team to reveal the status quo including what you’re currently doing and how it’s going in order to set a benchmark against which we can assess future performance. We’ll discuss your brand’s values, its services and day to day operations to gain a top-down view of your business.
Our brand team will research your key competitors, examining current trends and discovering any untapped opportunities for your business. At the end of this process you’ll receive a thorough competitive analysis document for review.
User research is the most vital part of the process. Our research will start with any available data from your CRM, your website and your social media accounts in order to assess user behaviours and interactions. Working with you, we’ll then perform a series of workshops with your customers, front-line staff and marketing team that will result in the production of a User Empathy Map (or ‘persona’) as well as a detailed User Journey Map.
With all of this homework complete we’ll be in the position to discuss data-led strategies for developing your brand and how you communicate with your audience. You’ll meet with our experienced branding and marketing experts to discuss new opportunities and any potential shifts in how you present the business and its products and services moving forward.

A Customer Empathy Map (or ‘persona’) is a detailed overview of your typical customer. It will include a breakdown of their typical attributes (age, gender, location, background, character traits etc.), as well as an overview of their core goals and tasks. The map will also consider your customer’s mindset, what issues they might come across and what information might influence their decisions.
Informed by your Customer Empathy Map (or ‘persona’), your Journey Map would break your customer’s typical journey with your business into various stages. For each stage we’ll examine what tasks and questions they might have, we’ll consider how they might interact with your business, what mindset they’ll be in and what might influence their decisions. At the end of the process you’ll have a detailed overview of how and where you should be making contact with customers and what matters to them at that particular stage.
