Year

2023

SOS Leak Detection, a leader in leak detection services for B2B, aimed to expand into the direct-to-consumer market. They partnered with connective3 to develop a launch strategy.

The Approach

SOS Leak Detection wanted to be distinctive, stand out in a crowded market, and use brand authority to dominate. Using our Maker Model strategy framework, the Strategy & Insights team discovered a significant opportunity to take advantage of.

OUR FINDINGS

Through our research, we found that 10% of households have hidden leaks, but people lack awareness about this. The data also revealed that the market is cluttered with independent plumbers or small leak detection services with generic advertising.

A focus group highlighted frustration with plumbers and their reliability. In addition to this, financial struggles meant that the working class didn’t have the money to ‘trial’ a new product.

While earnings have increased, real earnings have declined rapidly.
Households are struggling to pay their bills, using less water and less gas.
