“We utilize Market Track because they customize their tools and solutions to support our business initiatives. We evaluated other solutions that take a one-size-fits-all approach, but they weren’t able to meet our specific needs. Market Track provides us with the insights we need to quickly to take action in the marketplace.”

“Before signing on with Market Track, we used a similar service provider and ended up spending 90% of our time manipulating the data into a usable format. Since switching, we’ve been huge fans of Market Track’s custom hierarchies and segmentation that mesh with the analyses we do every day. Now we’re able to spend 90% of our time taking direct action on the insights coming out of the data.”

“The Share of Voice Report is FANTASTIC!! It saves so much time vs. manual counting and running numerous reports when you have to look at multiple categories. It also shows when a banner changes focus on a specific category because of where it ranks within the banner in ad activity .”

Recent Client Success Stories

 

Saving $2 Million in 2 Hours — Lawn Products

A national home center requested a significant budget increase from a leading lawn products company over the current year. In return for the increased budget, the retailer agreed to provide additional ad placements.

With sales flat, the manufacturer turned to Market Track to evaluate their advertising performance for the two previous years.

They found that historically sales were stronger with fewer, more prominent ads instead of smaller, more frequent ads.

With this information, the manufacturer worked with the retailer to develop an ad program to drive sales that emphasized product placement and ad size rather than ad frequency.

The bottom line? With a better ad strategy in place, the manufacturer avoided a $2 million increase in ad spend while still increasing sales the following year with better ad position and placement.

 

Saying “I Do” To Your Retailer and Liking It — Breakfast Cereal

Cereal marketers recognize the need to provide value to their retail partners if they expect to earn the shelf space necessary to generate their target volumes.

That’s why one cereal manufacturer relies on Market Track to deliver the category and promotional pricing information quickly and easily, with a huge added benefit—their retailers turn to them as category captains for the most accurate and timely information they can get.

When category captains use reports and digital images of competitive activity to justify additional facings for specific products, they also provide the valuable service of educating the retailer about its own markets.

Being able to deliver reliable, accurate information has helped this marketer achieve its major objective—add a valuable service that builds a trusting and profitable relationship.

 

Compliance Reliance — DVD and Blu-Ray

Monitoring compliance to Minimum Advertised Pricing agreements (MAP) is crucial to protecting the carious studios and retailers who sell movies on DVD and Blu-Ray. One retailer featuring a super low price on a new release unfairly impacts other retailer partners who are in compliance.

That’s why a major movie studio relies heavily on Market Track to automatically deliver clear, concise and detailed pricing reports on DVD and Blu-Ray promotions in all major markets. These “alert” reports are automatic and precise.

Market Track reports are so timely that violators are spotted quickly, enabling the studio to enforce compliance throughout their retail distribution.

 

Too Many Products, Too Many Prices — Top 10 Retailer

A top retailer continued to find their pricing on key promotional items being topped by various competitors. One week it would be competitor A, the next competitor B.

Using Market Track’s Advanced Analytics tools the Merchandisers at the retailer were able to identify the low price offered on all their planned purchases targeted for promotion

Now the retailer rarely finds that something they decide to go big on for key event periods gets trumped by a competitor.
