Physical Market Analysis:

We have developed our own “French Style” market analysis. Hands-on with physical prospecting done by one of our dual learning university students.

> Our way of working:
The first step is a detailled interview with our client in order to know more about the market, segments, type of customers, etc.

> Actions taken:
We buy, most often through our links with “The Chambre of Commerce”, a potential customer list from a region in France,
This list is then integrated into our prospection CRM-system. We define together with the client a dedicated dual learning university student with affinity with our customers products or services.

Via our own developed CRM and follow-up system the students will contact and perform physical visits during a dedicated period of time a certain number of potential customers.

These visits can be joined by the customer in order that they have their own feeling on the targeted market. After the physical analysis we give our client a very clear view on the market potential. We also give recommendations how to attack the French market based on the physical analysis.

Some practical examples:

Client: A Flemish company in interior design.

Trainee: Eliane Woestelandt.

Situation:

Company wants to take part in a large interior fair at Kortrijk. Why not also attract all interior decorators from the North of France with a personale invite ?

Actions for the client:

  1. DewaFlex buys a list through CCI, this contains a list of about 100 interior decorators,
  2. Eliane visits these 100-potential customers (+- 1 week of visits),
  3. Eliane introduces herself as a student working for a project in Belgium,
  4. Eliane invites her French potential customers to the fair and is also present.

Result:

A high turnout of French interior decorators at the fair with a personal follow-up !

Client: A Belgian company in cleaning products.

Trainee: Victor Bruneau.

Situation:

Company has almost no market share in France, but they are very sure that the sales potential in France can be bigger then the current turnover in Belgium.

Actions for the client:

  1. Victor visited during 3 months about +- 200-potential customers (door-to-door),
  2. This “on field”-market analysis showed that the northern French market needed an additional full-time sales representative.

Result:

The company has given this additional area as stimulus and motivation to a senior bilingual Belgian sales representative. (Visit planning & time scheduling are set up by DewaFlex).

Client: A German manufacturer of stainless steel pickling machines.

Trainee: Tanguy Chastan.

Situation:

Company wants to have a better idea/view of the market potential of their products on the French market.

Actions for the client:

  1. Tanguy visited various possible distributors or distribution channels for several months (3-month period),
  2. In doing so, Tanguy has sold several machines for the German company.

Result:

A commercial agent was found !

Client: A large transport company wants to look into the potential in France.

Trainee: Maximilien Krukowski.

Situation:

The manager of the company is convinced of the potential in France. But he does not find the time to fix appointments and his current market & sales approach is not in the typical “French manner”.

Actions for the client:

  1. Maximilien plans a full week per month in a certain region for joint visits together with the manager,
  2. Maximilien does the entire time scheduling and fixes all appointments, he then visits the customers together with the manager,
  3. The conversations are initiated and concluded by Maximilien in the typical “French manner”.

Result:

The manager has had several fruitful conversations with potential new customers.
