Research-Guided Marketing Strategy

Client :BrightRidge Broadband

A late entrant to the internet provider market, BrightRidge needed a strong marketing strategy to drive new customer acquisition and boost engagement. After underperforming in the initial phase, they came to us for industry insights.



In an industry with roughly 90% market penetration, we needed direct insights from competitors’ loyal users, to understand how to appeal to potential customers. We used DSI research and data to guide creative, media recommendations and executions, working under a tight timeline.


We developed lifestyle profiles for multiple household segments that indexed high as likely customers, defining the unique characteristics of each. Using the information we gathered from potential customers, we determined key ISP attributes that would motivate them to seriously consider switching from their current providers.

The research revealed competitive opportunities to attract new customers, and defined the perceived unique benefits of BrightRidge and barriers preventing households from considering switching to the new service.
