Market research services
We offer early stage small and medium marketplace businesses the initial market research services to help you better understand your market size and value, compile the profiles of your target users (buyers and sellers), identify your direct and indirect competition and assess the current market trends that can affect your marketplace business down the road.
Marketplace monetization consulting
Selecting the right monetization strategy and laying out the plan for its implementation is crucial for a two-sided marketplace. We offer businesses advice on choosing a monetization strategy, designing and packaging the pricing plans and selecting a marketplace payment solution best suitable for every individual marketplace.
Designing the functional specification
We'll help you assess the features your marketplace needs taking into account your market, your users and their needs. A marketplace platform will generally include two sets of features - the core features that are crucial for any marketplace business and the extras that will help you stand out from the competition.
Creating the implementation timeline
The implementation timeline will keep you, your team and everyone else involved accountable and help prevent or mitigate time and budget overruns. Additionally, defining specific MVP and launch prerequisites will make sure you have a milestone to work towards when building your marketplace platform.
Marketplace design and usability
In 2019, simply launching a marketplace platform isn't enough – if you want your users to stick around, your marketplace has to provide a great user experience. We offer marketplace businesses fundamental design and usability audits to make sure their platforms follow the best usability practices and are not losing users due to common UX issues.
