Based on our experience working on B2B market research in Thailand, we often see companies promoting their brands by focusing on their strengths but fail to recognize how they truly create value for their customers. A market leader may continue to develop their products, therefore, making them more and more expensive and thus failing to increase their market size. A small player may scale their product down too much and make it suitable only among niched customers. So, we have created a guidebook to help develop marketing strategies, especially for B2B companies to create strong value propositions. Our guidebook is like a quick summary of the tasks you should go through when you have to rebrand your product or challenge a status quo to grow your business.
