We’re a leading group of experts who help you get full customer ownership.

Your customers are the single most important asset of your business. But it makes no sense to invest in them if you don’t own them. Your customers are your destination, not your journey.

To get there, you need to understand their needs, develop products or services that meet those needs, deepen the relationship and tackle churn. Every activity should be centered around what we call ‘Customer Ownership’.

Own your Customers.

What we do.

Customer Collective continuously grows your customer base and lifetime value through these 5 pillars that result in high-speed, sustainable growth:

Customer strategy.

We build a bridge between customers and the business, focusing ruthlessly on knowing what your customers need, why they need it, which solutions they seek, and how to move them towards these solutions.

Digital acceleration.

Along the customer journey, we boost your digital performance continuously and build high-performing digital touchpoints.

Data-driven approach.

Eliminating gut feel, we trust on facts, combining claimed and behavioural data, validating your business impact and leveraging data science to predict future actions.

Technology stack.

We are at the forefront of connecting businesses with the right technology stack, from requirement gathering to software selection and implementation. Our expertise ranges from Marketing Automation to CRM and PIM implementations.

Creativity & content.

We create powerful ideas and content that build long term brand awareness, - distinction, -preference and loyalty with your customer.
