We didn’t believe it either… 🦄

Brands that sell through retail and online channels still ‘set and forget’ their product portfolio strategies without clearly understanding the competitive landscape or their direct competition. 🤯

This means HUGE BETS and MASSIVE FINANCIAL RISK based on missing or insufficient data points, ad-hoc guesswork, and hope — and we all know, hope is NOT a strategy. 🙏🏻

Then we asked some important WHAT IFs…

WHAT IF you could anticipate competitors’ moves before they happen? 

WHAT IF you could identify exact channel activity that drives sales?

WHAT IF you could help merchant buyers evaluate assortments, pricing and promotion trends with an ‘on-demand’ blue print of the competitive landscape?

WHAT IF you could predict ‘price compression’ and stay ahead of their competition from an R&D, speed-to-market, and lifecycle trend perspective?

Some might say access to a playbook with all that information is impossible — it’s not. 🔑
