Case Studies


The insurance industry is an unloved sector. Also, insurers are old and have been unchanged for a long time. Can you see the opportunity?

Lemonade_Insurance - Case Study

I’ve experienced Lemonade as a customer in California for a year and realized that Lemonade has built an innovative business model and a lovable brand. The main reason is:

Lemonade keeps 25% as a flat feet, 75% left is to pay claims and if there’s money left over at year’s end, Lemonade gives back to nonprofits of their customer’s choice.

—> Main effect: Lemonade has nothing to gain by denying claims, their incentive flips to paying them super fast. That’s why Lemonade pays about a third of their claims in a few seconds.
—> Side effect: the giveback to nonprofits creates a cause to pursue. Therefore a sustainable relationship is created with the customers. It has been crucial for millennials, their primary target audience (see the different NPS drivers: traditional customers vs millennials).

A solid case study that should inspire any businesses that ‘feel like being stuck’ in an old system.

What can we learn from the Airbnb's marketing strategy? May this use case serve as a source of inspiration for your own work.

Airbnb_Tourism - Case Study

When I work on digital strategies, the same questions pop into my mind. How can we make a good story of the brand within the customer journey? How can we connect the dots between customers acquisition and customer retention tactics? How can we sketch out storyboards? What’s the appropriate time to talk about mission, vision, value propositions,…?

I often use analogies when my mind goes blank. Because the brain works like an association machine. The brain likes connections, relationships, patterns…any sense of meaning. This is how my brain came up with something he knows pretty well: Airbnb.

Now, what can we learn from the Airbnb's digital marketing strategy? Above all else, Airbnb is a fascinating story of “pure, unadulterated hustle”. To me, Airbnb is also a perfect alchemy between the marketing fundamentals and the customer journey.

Introducing the Digital Marketing Canvas (DMC)
I wish I came across this thing much earlier. Like 5 years ago. When I had no idea what I was actually doing in my day-to-day work at a startup. Making from 0 up to €500K a week.

I've automated my job before firing myself
You can't stop it. You can't escape it. You can't ignore it. You can't call politics, army, officials or your mom to save you. It's really violent and your business can be vanished because of it. Only those who will adapt themselves will be the survivors of the tsunami often called 'Digital Transformation’.

Audience segmentation

Customer journey overview

The most classic mistake brands do when managing ads accounts is about lack of clarity in segmenting and how many people in each segments (personae if you like) have been reached.

Now, users can easily add new segments and its size then see for themselves how much of these audiences have been covered by their campaigns. Finally it’s getting a lot easier to get actionable insights.
