Product strategy

A market-leading product strategy, defined and delivered

Your company’s product strategy represents the high-level plan of what the business is aiming to achieve through each of your products and services. This plan will include what stage the product is at in its lifecycle, your key target markets and the routes to them, and a justification of how it will help your business achieve its goals.

Ignite your product strategy

A well-developed product strategy will give you commercial clarity on each of your product lines, with key metrics including average order value, gross profit percentage current revenue levels, and give you and your team revenue targets to focus on. Lastly, your product strategy should reference the associated sales, marketing and delivery strategies for each of your products, and identify the critical actions for each product that will enable you to reach your business goals for it.

What are the benefits of having a product strategy?

A well-articulated product strategy will give you and your team absolute clarity on what your business is trying to achieve, and provide a series of focal points to direct their activity towards. This will lead to:


A clear understanding of how your business is going to deliver its financial goals through the different products and services it sells.


Better internal communications and collaboration, as every member of your team will understand what they are collectively trying to achieve.


Focused marketing, sales and delivery planning, as your business priorities and delivery timescales will be better understood.


Clear, effective product positioning in your marketplace(s), with well-informed, impact marketing campaigns and fully-featured sales toolkits.
