Discovering motivations & perceptions behind audience needs


A P2P marketplace launched its used cars platform, with impactful messaging that brings buyers and sellers together, for an easy, convenient and reliable process of direct sale or purchase.

Services: Consumer research, Survey methodology, Quantitative analysis


Consumer attitudes and perceptions were assessed towards MVP, to determine priority of needs, that drew insights into the value proposition.  

Value-added differentiation was designed around the in-depth understanding of target market needs.

Survey research plan was mapped out and executed to define buyers’ and sellers’ motivations to direct sale or purchase, as well as perceptions on capabilities of P2P platform.

Identification of pain-points and decision-making drivers, provided clarity on messaging strategy to own unique positioning of a trusted, transparent and safe auto marketplace.

Think of us as your brand’s custodian

Just like a baby, a startup or small business needs different things at each stage of development. In the beginning, hand-holding is crucial to establish viable target markets and get the basic elements of a brand identity in place. Then come the teenage tantrums; a difficult phase where the brand must ‘find itself’ through a lot of creative experimentation to fine-tune the messaging and delivery for maximum impact. Finally, comes the maintenance phase, defending market advantages and venturing into new areas.

We’ve got you covered every step of the way. Our international team of specialists collaborates remotely to deliver solutions at each stage of your brand’s evolution.

Don’t listen to us. Listen to our clients.
