Marketing Strategy

Executive Summary

In a maturing market, creating customers through marketing holds, from the management strategy point of view, an extremely important position. In the construction of management strategy, depending on whether the company is aiming for new customer acquisition or maintaining existing customer, or whether the company is trying to create demand, or win over share, the marketing method which should be taken could be separated into 4 types. Our company’s marketing strategy consulting chooses the marketing method which best suits the objective from the 4 types, and provides the corresponding support.

3C analysis – STP strategy formulation

Environment analysis is conducted from the perspective of 3C. The current situation is grasped through analysis of rivals, analysis of the company’s competitive advantages, analysis of customer trend, etc. Then, customers are grouped according to their needs (segmentation), after which, the group which best suits the company is chosen (targeting). Moreover, based on the competitive advantage over rivals, the company’s standing place in the market is set (positioning).

Design of a marketing strategy which makes use of design thinking

In a mature market, realizing the hidden needs of the customers, and to create a completely new customer value is important. Therefore, in the search for customer needs, strategy ideas are created from zero-based thinking, while conducting persona creation and while applying design thinking, and not problem-solving thinking.
