Research & planning

To ensure our insights are grounded in data and our recommendations are fully validated, we continue to invest in an eclectic range of planning tools:

T he marketing landscape is constantly evolving. Every day there are new ways to engage, connect and influence via new channels, opportunities and tactics. But knowing where to be and how to act can be overwhelming - being everything to everyone isn’t always the answer. Instead, the key is to change perspective - to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. We believe in focus. In cutting through the noise to find clarity. So, we adopt three core principles to effectively plan campaigns, think through strategies, debate approaches and discuss ideas.



Role of media:

Profiling consumers to define demographic groups, to understand buying habits and interests and to identify media preferences.

Analysing and understanding your market and competitor landscape.

Using our audience and market knowledge, we make informed and objective decisions based on how media impacts consumers and when.

Success stories





In this era of healthy living and growing customer personalisation, Kolibri – an ambitious new start-up - approached Accord with a vision: to launch the world’s first tailored soft drink. They tasked us with creating a bold brand creative, refreshing packaging design and set of brand guidelines.

One of the most important sections of the ROL Cruise website is their online registration form, which is vital for driving user sign-ups. Using a combination of user recordings and performance data, we redesigned and repositioned the form - significantly increasing engagement across all devices.

Children with Cancer UK is a leading national children’s charity dedicated to improving the lives of children suffering from cancer. To raise awareness of their recent rebrand, we ran a national primetime TV campaign alongside an interactive OOH installation, which allowed passers-by to receive an onscreen personalised thank you message for their support.

Following an extensive review of Canadian Affair’s customer database, we discovered a potential new audience who were over-indexing on web visits: 25-44-year-olds. To reach this new audience and test performance against existing demographics, we created a cinematic, bold and highly targeted YouTube TrueView campaign.
