Growing sales of superior-quality appliances from a premier brand
Expanding the market for high-end appliances is challenging in a B2B2C model. This iconic company maintains their peerless reputation and exceptional service by retailing their products only through authorized dealers — foregoing direct connections with customers.
Gut instinct about who your customers are will never give you actionable data on how much better you could be doing.
This company wasn’t after technology. They were after a new organizational capability: proactive sales. They wanted to approach their dealer relationships armed with a current picture of their market penetration alongside real-time data on their addressable market potential across the U.S., to the ZIP level.
They were asking, whose dream kitchen aren’t we helping to build? And how can we partner with our dealers to attract and serve these consumers?

The foundation for data-driven dealer relationship programs and product marketing campaigns. “Build it and they will come” is a strategy that can work when your products are as stellar as this client’s. But relying on it long term leaves a dealer network ill-equipped, potential customers underserved, and sales on the table.
This client is using Nousot Market Potential to activate their dealer network with scorecards and incentives, and to fuel their sales and marketing engine with precise, location-based intelligence on consumers ready to buy.
The balance between understanding business practices and corralling ‘big data’ analytics was a success. Most successful businesses have one or the other, if they are lucky. The way the two were meshed together made for a better outcome.—Client Sales Operations Manager
