Our way of

thinking and acting

We are a studio of strategic planning and implementation driven by shopper insights. We believe that in-store strategies and tactics must be driven by insights obtained through a deeper look into the shopper: what does the shopper value? What motivates the shopper?

Based on acquired knowledge of the Shopper Journey and on the mapping of the shopper’s value chain, we build plans which add greater satisfaction and interaction with products, increasing sales conversion. We map opportunities and structure processes, as well as plan, create, train and implement actions which will generate better results for all parts - industry, shoppers and retailers - using a joint value creation approach.

our history and our cases...

Shoppermkt Group was founded in 2009 in São Paulo, Brazil, by Bia Cavalcante, who designed a methodology which - by merging academic and practical concepts – places shopper path to purchase knowledge as a fundamental guideline to influence business strategy.

Constantly looking forward, our team always strives to be up-to-date, by participating in international conferences, analyzing various cases and publications, anticipating trends, and enhancing our methods. Our group has grown consistently, gaining a solid structure and knowledge so as to deliver excellence in our service.

“Shopping is a way we search for ourselves and our place in the world.

Though often conducted in the most public of spaces, it’s essentially an intimate and personal experience – as we taste, touch, sift, consider, and talk our way through myriad possibilities.

Shopping involves searching not only externally, as in a store, but internally, through memory and desire.

It’s a vehicle for self-expression, self-definition, creativity, even healing – an interactive process in which we dialogue with people, places, things, and parts of ourselves” April Benson.
