Purple Jellyfish is a marketing agency and consultancy that starts with insight. We provide an insight-led strategic approach to client problems. This includes research (Quant, Qual & Desk), Data and CRM & Digital marketing; and Comms / PR. We link the two disciplines of research and audience engagement.
Our services can be delivered stand-alone or as part of an overall programme of strategic insight work:

Our 4 stage approach encompasses:

  • Step 1. Analyse your member data to build organisation-wide understanding of member trends and behaviours. This is often untapped and we advocate it as core to being insight-led
  • Step 2: Build hypotheses that reflect the visible trends in your organisation. This is based on data, not feeling. We use it to generate useable insights
  • Step 3: Design and manage targeted insight projects that test hypothesis and impact your organisation. These come from a range of methods.
  • Step 4. Deliver targeted campaigns to grow your commercial success – retention, migration, acquisition of members. Campaign planning based on strategic insight completes our strategic insight services.
