We blended Kaplan’s Website, Social, Search and Email data together to identify their different audience segments, their met and unmet needs, journeys and content that worked and content not found.

Neal’s Yard Remedies
Product used: Brand audit
There was a growing perception that Neal’s Yard Remedies had lost its pioneering ‘ethical’ beauty status and had become one of many – as opposed to the go-to brand for ethical wellbeing. We uncovered their audiences behaviours to answer a range of business challenges, including; how does the NYR brand and product positioning need to evolve to be seen as the go to brand, as consumers become more ‘ethically and sustainably’ conscious?
