Business Matchmaking

We identify and connect (match) companies and people with common business interests, complementary services, expertise, technologies or business strengths.

The goal is to create synergies and realize business opportunities that mutually benefit all involved parties.

The world is full of unknown and unspoken opportunities, as mid-sized companies are usually too focused on their internal business challenges. Such companies do not realize, do not have the time, or simply cannot afford to look around them systematically, with more courage and creativity.

Like an “Avatar” (concept borrowed from the movie), connecting to their home network of synapses to not only survive, but to grow, small and mid-sized firms can prosper after connecting and accessing the surrounding business eco-systems. Countless of these so-far-ignored synergies and opportunities start to appear, potentially boosting the business to unimaginable levels of growth.

As your consultants, our role is to identify the synapses that can be brought together, training clients to “see” the network and understand “the Matrix”.

Nowadays, technology progresses so fast that most small to mid-sized businesses cannot keep up with the speed of innovations. Connectibuss can supply businesses with curated new solutions, already accommodated to their needs and pains. Often, those fits can be identified even before the pain arrives, thus offering an extremely valuable competitive advantage opportunity.

We strongly encourage and help businesses to be early adopters of new technologies and innovations, and to digitalize as much and as fast as possible. As technology becomes increasingly democratic, the costs of accessing it are becoming reasonable even for smaller companies, but the gap between the generations is growing.

Market Entry Strategy

We help companies evaluate, understand, and seize new market opportunities.

With us, you can avoid mission-critical mistakes like low or no product/market fit, underestimating competition, and mismatched value propositions.

Many businesses want to expand profitably into new markets. They often attempt to capitalize on growing business opportunities in new geographic areas or explore new avenues of growth within their region. Either way, companies accelerate their growth when they successfully gain entry to new markets. Yet history shows that most market entry initiatives fail.

To help our clients mitigate risks and prosper in new markets, we develop a deep understanding of market dynamics and create detailed action plans.
We bring expert insights into market entry processes like market sizing, commercial assessments, competitive landscape analysis, cost-benefit analysis, supply chain structures, as well as post-entry growth opportunities.

We help clients understand the complexities of their new market, seek out suitable business partners in the local area, and objectively assess their own capabilities. Ultimately, we partner with our clients to select the optimal mode of entry considering multiple business scenarios and map out an effective investment journey.

Key Account Management

Key Account Management (KAM), also known as Strategic Account Management, is a process that helps sustain and expand relationships with important Key Accounts.

It involves working closely with multiple business departments to maintain and further develop the relationships with the key accounts.

In FMCG marketplaces, due to the dominant market shares held by big retail chains, the rapport of negotiation power between suppliers and clients is highly unbalanced in favor of the clients. Thus, a systematic, strategic approach is vital for suppliers in order to maintain a reasonable level of profitability and sustainability of these contracts.

Key account management (KAM) is the process of planning and managing a mutually beneficial partnership between an organization and its most important customers. Key accounts are significant to an organization’s sustainable, long-term growth and require a significant investment of both time and other resources.

In the SEE region, the combination of contrasting cultures, particular business practices, people’s mentality, multi-cultural business management teams, and very structured western-like operational procedures and rules practiced by Key Accounts lead to a “cocktail” that is most often difficult to understand and manage, especially by foreign companies. A local consultant, with 20+ years of experience in dealing with all these challenges will be able to help you design a successful strategy.

Connectibuss business consultancy firm can also organize and deliver training for your key account managers.

FMCG Private Label Development

We can assist you in building brands for both your or your partners’ businesses with surprisingly frictionless processes and methodologies.

With more than 20 years of experience in private label development, our senior consultants experienced the perspective of a manufacturer, as well as that of a client. We can help you avoid the common traps and pitfalls of complex private label projects in nowadays’ turbulent and unstable business environment.

From our perspective, the best private brand projects consist of an intelligent mix of efficiency, profitability but also human touch.

Private brands should not only be an appanage of big retailer companies, as there could be exceptional opportunities in other market segments and channels, as well. You can find several favorable strategic circumstances in every marketplace, and a well-trained eye can spot opportunities for developing private brands in the most surprising situations.

Nowadays, producers are more prepared and more willing than ever to sit together with a potential private label partner, especially if there is a win-win climate and a constructive dialogue.

With that being said, this is where our role begins! We put a lot of emphasis on the technical aspects of a private label deal, but we place even more importance on the need to build strong human connections, mutual trust, and on enjoying the journey itself!

At Connectibuss, we offer solutions and expertise in all elements of the private label process: Development – Business Strategy – Execution – Consumer Engagement.

Digital Marketing Strategy

The digital revolution is reshaping the customer journey, changing how customers gather information, engage with brands, define their consideration set and purchase goods and services.

We help clients get out in front of shifting customer demand and behaviors, optimizing go-to-market strategies in the new omnichannel environment and designing compelling digital experiences that drive brand preference, engagement and loyalty.

Questions we answer:

  • What will the future omnichannel shopping landscape look like, and how will it impact priority markets and product categories?
  • How is digital impacting the decision-making process across the customer journey, and how can we best influence customer decisions?
  • What is the optimal digital business model and go-to-market strategy for our business?
  • How can we optimize the digital experience for our customers to best drive preference, engagement, and loyalty?
  • How can we design digital platforms and customer offerings in a way that maximizes resonance with priority customers?
  • How can we use digital platforms and personalization to drive marketing and sales effectiveness?

Digital experience

To win with increasingly empowered, connected customers, it is imperative to create a consistent and compelling experience across customer touch points. Customers gravitate to the retailers, brands, and platforms that do the best job of delivering against their most important demand drivers.

We help clients gain a quantified understanding of customer decision influencers and demand drivers across touch points. We conduct a detailed benchmarking analysis against competitors, highlighting the most important performance gaps to address. This analysis informs the design of a superior digital experience across touch points, elevating customer engagement, conversion and loyalty.

Digital platform strategy

For many of our clients within the media and technology sectors, their customers are increasingly gravitating to digital platforms that provide a bundle of integrated, value-add offerings, and are easy to access anywhere, at any time, across a range of connected devices. We have extensive experience leveraging deep customer insight and ethnographic research to design digital platforms that delight customers, featuring pricing models that drive profitable growth, while maximizing adoption, engagement, and loyalty.
