Nature is an ecosystem. So is Marketing.

Go-To-Marketing Strategy is the art of building a chain of diverse fine-tuned, well-organized cogs 
that seamlessly convey a powerful and inspiring message to human beings.

Often, a business is born out of a need we have ourselves. Then, we challenge the idea around us. If the response is positive, we test through a survey, against trends and other players in the market. 

Once the playground is defined, we need to identify the position on it. Your dream behind your idea inspires the promise you will offer to people you want to serve in a new way, or with a new product.  The famous USP.

Branding is all about what characterizes a company’s personality, as defined by the founder(s). All that makes it real (ID elements), its intrinsic qualities, and the emotional vision.

The core brand message must be carefully defined. It is the editorial line’ foundation that considers SEO constraints. The topics will then be articulated in each touch point with the clients portrayed through personas.

Marketing is a question of Technical Competencies AND a question of Common Sense.

Market Intelligence
Customer Intelligence

  • A team of 13 high-skilled people based in Europe, India, and the United States
  • 2 Projects lead simultaneously over 1 year
  • 5 Business Units, 5 Industries
  • 24 Countries

Projects dated 2008.

From Darkness comes Light

Two totally unique initiatives,
widely acclaimed by the sales force

The 1st Market Intelligence Portal – EMEA Region

The project lies in the need of a market view from the industry perspective.

  • understand HP market share in each industry
  • identify/track industry-related solutions already developed 
  • evaluate the relevance of integrating those solutions vs. in-house options
  • get a clearer vision of the industry-related trends and dynamics

Given the data intersection with the technology Business Units, the initiative was very quickly extended to all silo divisions.

Due to the different issuing frequencies, dozen standardised services have been developed with a tight production and publication schedule.

Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, Half-Year, Yearly.


It was an instant hit with the sales force. Training sessions on how to use the platform followed one another for several weeks. 

Benefits for Sales Force

  • One single place  where to find data, alerts, and information
  • Better budget split in the data acquisition (local vs. regional, cross-unit vs ad-hoc) >>> 5 M$ savings.
  • Better information and knowledge sharing amongst the salesforce

Challenges of the project

  • No industry market data available. A new data model had to be created. 
  • Complex Market Data to consolidate and combine
  • Taxonomy to be common
  • 3 huge DataBase systems to merge
  • Publishing of deliverables with different frequencies
  • Elaboration of standardized templates over all the Business Units

Success was so tremendous with the EMEA sales force that the Americas’ and Asia-Pacific sales teams wanted their own Customer Intelligence services.

The Prototype of the 1st Customer Intelligence
Center of Excellence

It all started with a list of 100 EMEA accounts to analyse, without any guidance about the purpose of the task.

A few exchanges with the Sales Directors of the region helped to define the concept of Customer Intelligence with a range of high-quality services using public data source AND HP internal data.

  • Account Profiles (financials, growth strategy, decision-making flows, IT, etc.)
  • Peer-to-Peer Analysis (IT benchmark, IT trends in the industry, etc.)
  • Ad-hoc service like Financial impact for the client of different IT options

HP Headquarters in Palo Alto audited the initiative in order to evaluate the relevance of creating a Global Customer Intelligence Center of Excellence.

Benefits for the Sales Force

  • HP view of the account = client view of HP weight >>> better approach
  • Cost savings (external profile = 25K$ vs. internal costs = 5K$)
  • Stronger collaboration between the sales teams of different Business Units.
  • Web-based Data Purchase process optimized across the business units.

Challenges of the Project

  • Highly Political Context
  • Internal Data merger
  • Time pressure
  • Management and delivery Teams over three continents
  • Refined the Corporate Identity, the ID elements, and the messaging
  • Refined the positioning on the market
  • Developed & executed the GTM strategy as a White Brand to be sold to beauty product manufacturers on different continents.
  • Created the Corporate and Product Documentation

Buying a private jet? A dream but… Far too expensive. The purchasing cost. Plus the costs of maintenance and the training of the flying crew.
