Optimizing engagement »

Factoring in the real drivers of engagement.

Our approach to analytics is driven by the same principles that drive everything else we do at Hall & Partners.

They come from a deeper understanding of what drives behaviour and how brands and communications work to influence future behaviour. They are informed by the latest thinking on brands, from brain scientists and social science.

We believe these principles help us deliver powerful analytics that help you optimise your engagement strategies to deliver more short and long-term sales and profits.

We apply scientific and mathematical approaches guided by our philosophy, our knowledge of engagement and our understanding of our clients’ needs.

Creating opportunities to connect »


Shopping today is any time, any place and anywhere »

Digital and mobile technology have transformed the shopper experience.

Shopping is increasingly accessible. The removal of physical and geographic boundaries means people can choose from a wider range of goods and compare prices easily. People are looking for an engaging, consistent and seamless shopper experience, across all touch points along the customer journey.

A more engaging shopping experience encourages people to take immediate action and also make an emotional connection. This all leads to a new era of shopper engagement.


Knowing your consumer does not mean you know your shopper »

Shoppers are people who actually buy; they may not be the end consumer.

Shoppers can, and do, exert an influence over what is finally purchased. They have multiple shopper personalities; affected by occasion, channel and category. It is therefore critical to understand who your shoppers are and what influences their behaviour at different times.

Integrating understanding of both consumer and shopper behaviour enables organisations to develop strong brands, that are relevant, visible and engaging to shoppers.
