“We were looking to understand consumers in a new way and Thriveplan definitely delivered. We have a whole new understanding, and appreciation, for where consumers are coming from that we never had before. It was the type of insight leadership we were looking for. Be prepared to think in new ways.”

Traditional segmentation – like most research – relies on “what people think they think.” In the age of Behavioral Science, those multi-month, exorbitant budget studies are an inefficient relic.
Powered by The 9 WHY’s, we identify segments that go well beyond mere attitudes to clarify the Motivations and Costs that drive real-life behavior.
This lets you go to market leaner, meaner, and more effectively than your competition.
Hooray! You found a unique (usually psychographic // attitudinal) way to define the audience. Boo… you can’t point out the people in real life to bring it to bear on real world behavior.
Woot! You used traditional measures to identify demographic segments you can reach with activation programs. Oops… your competitors did the same thing and you’re all working against the ‘lowest common denominator’ in the marketplace.
Phew! You finally got through the data room to align on segments. Dang… you’ll have to live with them for years to come – even as the consumer context and competitive landscape evolves continuously.
The world of Neuropsychology provides the techniques to measure the pre-conscious drivers of behavior. Advanced statistical modeling links these pre-conscious WHY’s to real-world tactics so you focus on what matters most in driving your category and brand. Unique AND actionable.
Once you know what matters most, you can ditch confounding equity monitors, instead continually measuring the few things that matter most in real life, and provide your team with an agile approach to continuous improvement.

Perfectly informed decisions are an illusion, but the human brain has evolved to manage the uncertainty of everyday life. Specifically, the brain’s four primary strategies – the 4 core Motivations – offer fundamentally different views of the world.
Learn how identifying these strategies allows us to not only explain, but predict human behavior:
