The TLC Business team will conduct a competitor analysis and mystery shopper campaign on your direct competitors, within an agreed market and demographic. You will receive an in depth breakdown about each identified competitor, their positioning, USPs, branding, digital presence, charges (where possible), social media activity and current marketing strengths and weaknesses.

The analysis will enable you to:

  • Identify where there are opportunities to capitalise on competitor weaknesses
  • Establish how and why you are different
  • Establish what your own USP is
  • Create more effective and standout marketing messages


The TLC Business team will conduct a client survey on your behalf, making contact with your clients or lost business opportunities to get detailed feedback on why they use / didn’t use your services, what they like, what they don’t and what they would change.

We will agree and create the call structure and questions with you, then conduct the surveys and provide a follow-up report, detailing the responses and feedback.

The survey will enable you to:

  • Build relationships with your existing clients
  • Get back in touch with older clients
  • Establish exactly why your clients use you, highlighting your strengths
  • Gain valuable feedback on how to improve your service, thereby eliminating your weaknesses
  • Generate testimonials to use on your website and in future marketing material
  • Gather insights on your clients to help create your USP and make your marketing more effective


The TLC Business team will conduct an in-depth analysis on an agreed range of target sectors / markets to establish, which are most appropriate for targeting your services at.

We will work alongside you to agree and create a list of prospective sectors / markets we will target for the analysis. We will conduct the research on each sector / market, building up valuable insight into and information on each. Having obtained the required information, we will produce a report detailing which are most receptive to your current service offering, outline new ideas for services to make your offering more appealing to your preferred target sectors / markets and inform you of markets to avoid. The report will enable you to:

  • Save time and money on wasted marketing campaigns, targeting unreceptive markets
  • Increase the return on investment you receive on your current marketing by making it more relevant to your target markets
  • Increase awareness of your services within your target markets
  • Gain valuable insights into potential new target markets that enable you to increase your client base
  • Generate fresh ideas for improving your services


We sit down with you and your team for the day to help you identify and create your USP.

Using the findings from competitor and sector analyses, combined with your customer surveys, we provide a structured environment for creating and identifying your USP/s that will give you a real competitive advantage in your market place and make your business stand out from your competitors.

Your USP will:

  • Make your marketing more effective
  • Make you stand out in a crowded market place
  • Give your future marketing campaigns more focus, generating better results.
