Let’s Get to Work

Metheus Consultancy’s 2022 Year in Review: Growth and Innovation

In 2021 a lot has happened and changed in the world. One major change being the coronavirus and its mutation omicron which resulted in a several months long quarantine, consequently several months of online working. From March 2020 to June 2021, nearly every company worked online. The world became online and more globalized than ever. Every company has a technological and online side now, which makes tech companies more in the foreground.

These situations created a huge market shift and resulted in nearly every company’s chance of becoming global and made it easier for companies to expand into new markets. However, we realized that businesses in the B2B technology sector face difficulties expanding into new markets.

Difficulties faced by companies while expanding into new markets

As Metheus Consultancy, we decided to offer a solution for this problem and now, for a year, we have been helping businesses to acquire new clients in different markets, help market expansion, create go-2-market roadmap, help generating a lead generation strategy, share our expertise of sales and marketing, show how they can automate processes and create scalability, provide steps and implementation tactics as well as tracking systems to be more transparent and focus on right metrics. We are unique because we prove that business problem exists, validate the solution need and undoubtably define the customer audience; create the recipe and process on how your team can take over and continue to implement by themselves; establish the foundation and prepare roadmap for successful scale.

In order to succeed in our goal of implementing our solution methods and solving the problem, we worked on several projects with different companies.

Let’s look at some of our projects that has been done so far:

Mindsite

They are a start-up based in Turkey with a team of 26 people.

After their previous investment round in early 2021, they have achieved market growth in their home market, Turkey, with several enterprises FMCG and CPC manufacturers or retailers such as P&G, Johnson & Johnson, Getir, Unilever, Colgate and Pepsico. In early 2022, they had some early adopter customers with referrals from existing customers. They had high ambitions to achieve international client portfolio.

Our case study with mindsite

To carry through Mindsite’s goals, as Metheus, we helped them build a lead generation structure that generates high quality leads, and has led to significant growth in business. We developed a unique methodology that uncovers market potential and target audiences based on geographies, maturity, competition and their capabilities; this helped us provide a strategic solutions for market expansion. We used our expertise in solid lead generation and in data analysis to collect information about business and competition dynamics.

In consequence, Mindsite were able to actively communicate with target lead groups and people, get faster responses from leads and higher conversion rates for business opportunity meetings, start to build a complementary partner network in order to speed up the awareness and lead generation process.

In 2022, the company had a vision to expand their customer footprint in Switzerland and acquire new customers from Germany and Austria. However, they were not sure about how to generate leads digitally, as well as leverage digital marketing methods to create awareness and get in contact with prospects in these countries.

As a solution, we established a pipeline together to address the challenges of their customer profile and started POC works with new prospects. We’ve done a 2 month-long project on strategy to strengthen their positioning, differentiation from competitors, listed required actions and target expectations. After our first project, we extended our partnership on the implementation phase as well.

Our work included the establishing of the company’s business development actions together to reach more healthcare institutions, created an awareness on storing and monitoring cold-chain medicines across all targeted countries. Correspondingly, they are reaching their target audience quickly, communicating business opportunities and getting solid responses from them. They started several implementation works with newly created prospects and they are acquiring much more subscriptions for their platform and smart devices.
