How do you launch the Jimny, a new car 19 years in the making? Where consumers, journalists and auto professionals think they know the new model inside out, how do you bring the car to life when it isn’t in the country? Yet, keep consumers wanting to buy until it arrives? And on top of all of that – get consumers to feel part of an exclusive club? A content strategy, challenging how content is traditionally used in email to make consumers feel they are driving the Jimny, and a communication strategy timed to continuously build excitement.

Autistica wanted to move from a one size fits all communication strategy to one that recognises the needs of different Autistic community groups. And in doing so, make the most of their great content to drive deeper engagement and commitment. With limited customer data we blended Website, Email and Social Analytics to uncover 5 distinct needs and motivations and 5 discrete audience segments. From these insights we created an easy to use tool kit including a communications, channel and content strategy to drive access to support, engagement and donor value across the groups.

Asthma UK wanted to identify data and audience quick wins to apply to on-going and future data and communications strategy. By blending their website, social and database data together we uncovered how consumers perceive Asthma UK and the needs they seek to satisfy. From these insights we developed a new way of segmenting their database, targeting strategy, communications framework all designed to recognise the different needs and motivations of each segment. And more importantly to convert consumers from ‘patients’ to ‘supporters’.
