Best in Class Market Assessment

International expansion projects typically begin with a comprehensive market assessment, where we employ a multifaceted lens to evaluate the most fertile grounds for your brand’s global flourish. 

We analyse a range of macro factors such as the target audience demographics, cultural nuances, prevalent shopping channels, currency, language and delivery preferences, as well as the competitive landscape. Our goal is to pinpoint the markets where your brand’s products and story will resonate the most.

Channel Selection

Next, we navigate the digital landscape to ascertain which channels will be your brand’s best conduits to reach your new international audience. We assess whether a direct-to-consumer ecommerce website or marketplaces would be the ideal platform to showcase your offerings.

Our experts then prioritise which channels to conquer first, forming a clear, strategic sequence of launch.
