Staying relevant in an evolving market

In the closing months of 2019, Wastoren® stood on the brink of an exciting journey of growth. As a dynamic start-up with a unique product that promised to transform laundry spaces, they held the seeds of success within their grasp. Yet, like many start-ups, they faced the formidable task of understanding their market and carving out their place within it.

With a clear vision in mind, the team at Wastoren® had their sights set on transforming the way people did laundry. However, bringing this vision to life required more than just an innovative product. It needed a deep understanding of its target audience’s needs, problems, and potential solutions.

Wastoren® needed to tap into the active market demand for washing machine cabinets, identify relevant products, and understand who their competitors were. This information would offer clarity about the intentions and needs of their target audience, allowing them to tailor their product and marketing efforts effectively.

Their primary goals were to enhance their online visibility, increase conversion rates, and reduce costs per conversion. However, amid the sea of data and insights, one element emerged as crucial for growth: relevance. 

Relevance became the common denominator that tied together all the objectives. It became increasingly apparent that addressing the needs and problems of their customers should be the cornerstone of their strategy.

Wastoren®, like any start-up hungry for growth, found itself confronted with a challenge. How could they ensure that their products and marketing efforts stayed relevant in a market that was constantly evolving? 

The key lay in securing the right insights.

Putting the customer first as foundation for growth

The strategy to elevate Wastoren®’s market presence was underpinned by a holistic mapping of the active market demand for washing machine cabinets. This was achieved through meticulous analysis of online orientation data, unearthing valuable insights into critical aspects of Wastoren®’s market environment:

  • Challenges that customers face which provided opportunities to position Wastoren®’s products as solutions.
  • Solutions that are currently available which helped understand what sets its products apart.
  • Products that compete with theirs, offering insight into their competitive landscape.
  • Competitors, allowing an understanding of their strategies and identifying areas where Wastoren® can outperform.

This comprehensive approach gave Wastoren® a profound and granular understanding of its target audience’s intentions and needs. 

Armed with these insights, the digital marketing agency New Media, skillfully customised the webshop, content, and ads to cater to our target group’s unique needs. Putting a spotlight on the problems that Wastoren®’s products solve, aligning marketing efforts seamlessly with customer demands.

This demand-driven strategy focused on the user experience with the washing machine cabinet, ensuring that their solutions were not just relevant, but also resonated deeply with their customers.

But this solution-focused, data-informed approach is more than a strategy — it’s a commitment to putting the customer first, positioning Wastoren® for enduring success in a competitive marketplace.
