What are your areas of focus as a retail consultancy?

Do you do brand assessment, or should I hire a separate retail consulting firm?
Yes, G & Co. does brand assessment. We recognize that every brand at its core is a relationship with a promise to consumers; that promise tells people what they can expect from them, what makes them different from the rest, and ultimately reflect how people perceive a brand. Our brand assessment process evaluates a company’s strength by asking whether we meet the expectations we want to have and how we can elevate ourselves to a better vision. If you have a brand assessment or any other fashion consulting need, please write us an email at email@example.com.
How can I get a proposal for my project?
If you’re looking for a retail or fashion consulting agency, please send us an email first with a quick summary of your project or an RFI/RFP. We usually reply within 36 hours to schedule an introductory call and ask any immediate questions. During our first call, we will ask some questions about the project goals, audience, budget, timeline, and other essential details. Of course, we realize we will be discussing sensitive info, and we would be more than happy to sign an NDA if necessary, but our standard is to always treat all client conversations as confidential. Please feel free to contact other consultancies to compare their prices and brand approach. While many branding and luxury retail consulting firms work by the hour, we try to estimate the project cost as precisely as possible before we start. After the call, we may request various documentation such as a brief, project requirements, past reports, etc. Our proposal will include a detailed description of our brand approach, project phases, activities, deliverables, and relevant case studies.
What process should I expect from your retail consulting agency?
Our process is based on the design thinking methodology, which allows us to be flexible, adapting to almost any project type and collaboration model. Of course, each engagement is unique, but we always go through the following key phases:
Discovery & Research We usually start by consolidating all available project documentation and breaking down questions about your brand. During those sessions, we interview key stakeholders, collaborate on requirements, and ideate and plan the next steps. When possible, our strategists talk to your current or potential customers to understand their needs and pain points. In some cases, we may need to audit your existing strategy to identify opportunities for user experience improvements. We will also review competitor approaches, gather references, and document best practices.
Digital Strategy & Concepts Based on the discovery & research results, we synthesize a digital strategy and define the approach to drive our process. Because we are a user experience agency at heart, we will explore different concepts to establish such core elements as information architecture, interactions, and future engagements. We then validate the resulting concept with users and stakeholders. Once the feedback is in, we make the necessary updates to design what our strategy will look like.
What does G & Co. do, primarily?
G & Co. is a retail consultancy and agency. We consider ourselves an equal partner to our brands because we cater to any need an emerging brand or established name could need. As a retail consulting agency, we work hard to ensure we do everything we can for our clients to be as suited as possible for the ever-changing consumer landscape. We recognize that the strongest brands today are those who have embraced the technologies of today and will adopt what consumers come to use. After all, the brands who want to redefine their industries are the ones who do. We pride ourselves on working with those brands and the people behind them. Because together, we can accomplish exceptional ambitions and create enduring results. And as a UI/UX web design and development agency, we can help implement the creative elements your brand needs to start making breakthroughs for the digital age.
