HOME IMPROVEMENT

Launch or grow your home improvement brand

You want to grow your home improvement brand(s). That might mean penetrating new retail channels, selling more products in the outlets you’re already in, or generating more online sales.

In today’s world of consumers demanding more from the companies that manufacture their favorite products, plus ever-changing retailer expectations, having a unique product isn’t always enough. You’ve got to correctly position your brand, spend appropriately to promote it, your packaging needs to stand out and resonate, you need retailer-specific planograms, and the list goes on… 

Some brands just wing it, even when they don’t have the retail knowledge or resources to get where they need to go. But the risk with this approach is expending time and resources chasing down rabbit holes, missing deadlines, or skipping important steps, resulting in not meeting consumer or retailer expectations. All this can lead to missed sales or being dropped altogether.

What if you could strategically partner with a team that takes products from concept through commercialization, offering everything from market research and package design to buyer strategy, trade event support, and even retailer-specific planograms?

Think of how much quicker you could reach your goals and the better chance you’ll have at succeeding!

It’s all possible when you partner with us — experts in CPG marketing and retail.
