Development of marketing strategies

Position yourself correctly

We support companies in repositioning themselves on the market

  • • Market and competitive position describe the external situation of a company.
  • • In order to influence it and increase the company’s success, internal factors (product and company characteristics) must be considered more closely and, if necessary, optimized.
  • • Thierhoff Consulting supports entrepreneurs in this process. This may range from the development of the product core, the identification of an alternative product positioning to the implication of an alternative sales strategy.

Optimization of business processes

Solutions for more profitability

We analyze existing processes and the business model and point out new and innovative solutions.

  • • Is a company not profitable or not profitable enough? Have the market and competitive situation changed and are the corporate strategy and internal processes planned to be adapted and optimally aligned to the changed market situation?
  • • We like to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of a company with regard to its individual corporate strategy and develop solutions together in the areas of business model adaptation, digitalization, innovation as well as work and process organization.
