our buying
insight tools

If we received £100
for every time we heard...

"We've got all the buying behaviour insight we need, it's just a case of sifting through it"

...you wouldn't be reading this,
we would have retired!

now that we have your attention

Economics guides our
purchase decisions

The fact is a big proportion of you will know some or a lot about Behavioural Economics - System 1 & System 2 thinking and how we make fast and slow purchase decisions.

Some of you will be advocates of Byron Sharp with the focus on penetration to reach all types of buyers. Or Nudge Theory.

Or you may be reliant on Kantar & Nielsen data. You probably have a Purchase Decision Hierarchy for your brands. These are all respected sources... But do they really help you understand what guides the buying behaviour of your audiences?

If you did... what a fantastic way to futureproof your marketing and messaging.

We call it

Identifying the Unconcious Cues that drive more consumers to buy your brand over your competitor's brands.

I want to find out more

We partnered with Durham University Business School, to review 100's of academic studies into heuristics & cognitive biases...

(the last time we will blind you with science, promise)

...and reframed them into 9 Sales Triggers.

see no more science

These 9 Sales Triggers form the broad Unconscious behaviours that govern and guide our purchase decisions...

oops a little bit sciency

...and every one of these 9 Sales Triggers has endless iterations.

This is the really clever bit... we have a proprietary methodology to identify your brand's Sales Trigger iterations that will give you the edge over your competitors.

We call it Sales Trigger Insight.

if not read on... it's worth it

Sales Trigger Insight does what traditional research cannot do - it identifies the brand specific Sales Trigger iterations you need to leverage in your marketing & messaging.

We have developed both Quantitive & Qualitative methodologies - hence we like to position it as delivering "the statistical robustness of Quant and the insight of Qual"

Don't take our word for it...

It's given us permission to leverage our credentials

"The Sales Trigger insight has given us permission to leverage our sustainable credentials and we have now embedded it into strategic planning & retail activation"

One of the best insight studies we've seen

"The feedback was really positive. I heard that it was one of the best PDH studies they have seen, they loved the HD theatre section and inspiration piece and the overall holistic, blue sky type approach."

"Sales data and a Purchase Hierarchy is all I need."

Maybe, but really that will only give you category insight based on Conscious decision making.

However, our tools can identify Conscious & Unconscious buying behaviours in one go (rather like a buy one get one free deal)... and give the definitive understanding of what drives category browsing (Conscious) and what will nudge consumers to buy your brand (Unconscious)


decision tree


Logical, structured, robust. Mapping a conscious process of how consumers approach a category

Our holistic approach covers conscious and unconscious decision making dynamics




Behavioural, unbiased, robust. Uncovering the unconscious influences that can nudge consumers to select one brand over another

Where is all this leading?

It takes us back to the top of the page; you may think you have all this insight buried in dozens of research reports but we all know the likelihood of being able to action them is low.

So as a final value exchange what you get from our Sales Trigger Insight tools is...


Our buying behaviour findings won't just sit in a Report, we bring them to life to show you how they solve the very problems that led to the insight being commissioned in the first place. Every report comes with a Playbook of relevant activations:

Messaging, promotions, point of sale, category intiatives, social eCommerce initiatives, media activity, propositions, repertoire, retail collaborations etc. etc.

.... All ultimately serving one overriding objective
