How it works

Happy Clients


Assessment & Intake

We'll start by understanding what you need and how we’ll get there. In general we need to know three things: Your target, your goal, your available data. Don’t worry if you don’t have any existing customer data! Only include it if you want it included.. 


Hunting & Gathering

Based on your focus, budget and timeline, we start hunting and gathering. We'll initiate social listening monitors, setup customer focus groups, alongside other crafty methods of collecting customer intel. Our 'gathering' phase brings together all methodologies to develop insights based on patterned customer behavior and motivations.  

Briefing & Delivery

We operate behind the scenes, or deliver insights to your team live. If timing is tight we'll deliver presentation-ready slides in your style. If you need help bringing the insights to life, we'll be ready with a brief. We also offer immersive presentations that develop a rich picture of insights through multi-sensory methods like audio, video, and scent.
