Problem & Mission Statement
Fertwise came to me needing direction and clarity on their brand and business strategy. I was able to break down the essence of the brand and understand the target audience behaviours and emotions. We eventually rebranded the company as Farmmatters with Fertwise being a part of the services they offer.
Firstly I needed to understand the products and services, then understand the customers and their needs and pain points.
This gave us a clear idea on what we needed to provide to our customers and what questions we needed to answer.
I did an analysis of the competition understanding what makes Fertwise unique.
To better understand the product offering we mapped out a user journey around the current process and identified what the website and digital strategy would need to do.
We evolved the brand into 3 different areas. One focus was around animal supplements, another on liquid fertiliser and then the over arching brand on soil consulting.
