We will help you deeply understand consumer needs
Innovation, product, packaging, portfolio development
Wondering what new product to launch? Will it expand your business, attract new consumers and fit into your brand DNA? Our proprietary innovation research will answer all your questions.
Exploration, search for insights
Without understanding the consumer and their relationship with the category, we will not create good solutions. We will help you define consumer segments, understand their needs, identify niches that no one has developed, find insights that are at a premium, in a word, lay the groundwork for coming up with really good solutions.
Generating ideas, creating concepts
Often the bandied-about U&A reports provided do not lend themselves easily to translation into functional ideas. Creating good solutions is an art in itself. That’s why we use the proven method of Design Thinking to develop really good ideas based on exploratory knowledge and consumer personae together with you.
Screening of ideas
If we have a great deal of ideas or ready-made solutions, it is worth selecting those that are promising. This is the screening stage of ideas – we will easily select those ideas that we want to develop further.
Refinement of ideas, concepts
Sometimes it’s tempting to test what we come up with right away – without constructive criticism and additional work on them to improve them. Unfortunately, this is how we can kill great ideas, simply because the original version is underdeveloped…. At this stage, we will create refined concepts that best express a given idea.
Product formula tests
Good products are appreciated by the consumer. We will help you select and refine your product idea to make it unrivaled. Depending on your goal, you can choose a blind test or a branded product test, a formula test in Central Location or in the consumer’s home.
Packaging is often the only carrier of information about your product, and whether it stands out on the shelf can determine its selection. We will test and help you select and refine your packaging so that it increases your product’s sales while being convenient to use. Using a virtual shelf, we will test whether your packaging will be visible on the shelf and how readily it will be selected.
Refining other elements of the marketing mix-price, name
There are times when the price or name is predetermined. However, if you are asking yourself what you want your product to be called and how much it should cost, then you can use Zymetria’s solutions – name tests, cojnoint pricing studies and DataScience solutions.
Concept and product test
Wondering which concept has the most potential? Unsure if your product delivers on the promises it makes? We’ll help you make an informed choice and determine how much your winning concept stands a chance in the marketplace and whether your product prompts repeat purchases.
Portfolio optimization and development
A new product idea does not exist in a vacuum; it can often become another product in a brand’s portfolio. The obvious question arises about the risk of cannibalization about whether it should become an additional SKU, or is it worth replacing another variant? Using MaxDiff or conjoint methods, we can help you optimally develop your portfolio.
Sales estimation, source of business
Good ideas are essential, but it is satisfactory sales that are the measure of success. There is often a question about the source of business and the risk of cannibalization. At this stage, we will combine our marketing and analytical expertise to provide you with concrete numbers with which you can supplement your business plan.
First experience with innovation
After launching a new solution or product, we have a seeming moment of respite. In fact, at this point we still need some attention, because it is only after the product launch that we collide with reality. That’s why it’s a good idea to ask consumers about their first experience, their satisfaction with the product and their willingness to buy again. “Real time experience” will allow us to optimize support for our launch, identify and take advantage of unexpected growth opportunities.
Prices, assortment, promotions
