Frost & Sullivan Uncovers How A Company Can Increase Market Share With Segment-Based Consumer Insights

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New research from Frost & Sullivan demonstrates how a company can effectively harness segmentation research to reveal actionable consumer insights. Frost & Sullivan's Growth Team Membership's (GTM's) new best practice guidebook entitled: Embedding Segment-Based Insights within Marketing features BP, a global energy company, and the process it developed to incorporate segment-based consumer insights into the company's decision-making. 

"A company's success hinges upon its ability to understand its consumers such that it can target the most profitable ones with compelling messaging, but how does a company gain actionable insights into various segments and their attitudes, preferences, and behaviors?" asked Keith O'Brien, vice president of global research for Frost & Sullivan's Growth Team Membership. "BP has demonstrated how a company — regardless of business model or industry — can develop a global, end-to-end segmentation process that uncovers critical consumer insights, prioritizes segments, and drives marketing initiatives."

Embedding Segment-Based Insights within Marketing is a detailed best practice guidebook that illustrates how BP:  

  • Conducted a balance of qualitative and quantitative segmentation research
  • Used stakeholders' priorities to help shape the segmentation study
  • Developed and prioritized consumer segments
  • Embedded segment attributes with tailored study deliverables and global workshops
  • Used segment-specific insights to shape marketing decisions

This approach allowed BP to surpass volume targets, increase market share, boost fuel transactions, and strengthen consumer brand ratings in a highly competitive category.

AttendA complimentary Ask the Thought Leader webcast will be co-hosted by Frost & Sullivan's GTM and BP on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. EDT . This event will feature BP's development of its best practice in greater detail. During the webcast, Rajit Chakravarty, global customer insight manager at BP, will participate in a live question-and-answer session.  

The Embedding Segment-Based Insights within Marketing best practice guidebook and the complimentary Ask the Thought Leader webcast are part of Frost & Sullivan's Growth Team Membership™ (GTM) program, which provides case-based research, events, and consulting to address the internal challenges individual executives face within their respective functions.
