Market overview

The shopper and consumer environment is rapidly developing, and the methodologies to understand shopper behaviour have evolved significantly through adaptations of consumer marketing techniques (interviews, questionnaires, diaries) and through the development of shopper-specific techniques. The key is to understand how to interrupt, engage and convert shoppers in the retail (or spending) environment, as well in the virtual world where consumers now spend vast amounts of their time.

Brands struggle to stand out in these cluttered spaces.

Red Fox Create is one of few companies that can truly offer a full end-to-end Customer & Consumer service, from insights through to execution, reaching shoppers and consumers not only in the real world but also in the digital space and where they enjoy the products they purchase.
