proprietary tools

When good enough is not enough, the answer is to innovate. Here are some of our strategic tools that have been instrumental in gaining valuable insight for our clients.

A qualitative tool designed to help brands understand the intricacies of the intersection between the practical and emotional drivers consumers need to engage with them.  These 3 hour sessions are based on Dr. Clotaire Rapaille’s theory that everyone processes decisions based on the Reptilian Brain.  This research focuses our instincts of attraction and survival;  governs emotions (i.e. love and hate), and practical intelligence, including rationalization (price and money).

A modern day real-time ethnography that utilizes digital tools to gain insight into the actions and behaviors of consumers. Participants are asked to engage with brands in the moment and respond to requests, homework assignments, and more. They are able to share photos, videos, and digital diaries to provide brands with a real-world snapshot of their buying/engagement journey.

Sometimes there is the need to hit the road and live with and observe your target audience in a more intimate way.  VAW is a documentary we produce for brands that highlight specific consumer needs in their day-to-day lives that ends with actionable insights on how the brand can deliver and delight.  Our award-winning documentary filmmakers to provide unique storytelling to illuminate needs and desires that brands can use to ignite a love affair with consumers.

Our Disruption Days are meant to help brands identify everyday conventions in their category and then move to disrupt those conventions with the goal of creating significant differentiated space to drive revenue and loyalty. This unique process is meant to identify and solve key business challenges that include marketing, operations, customer service, finance, and more.
