Research

01

How research was done

As a mom to a toddler my self, I have a community of many moms, families and babies.  

In order to understand their needs I did the following: 

  • checked online social media in moms groups and development.

  • Talked to moms about their daily routine and what issues were unsolved

  • Observed babies and toddlers, studying their preferences to different textiles

  • Study the competitors, what solutions they suggest to what challenges.

02

Pain Points & Needs

These were main conclusions:

  1. Senses - Fabric of current textiles are sometimes itchy

  2. Pacifiers get lost to many times

  3. Need to change Nappies outdoors

  4. Need to  breast feed outdoors

  5. Whether in Israel is too need airy textiles

  6. When babies cry Comfort toys assist

  7. There is is a need for a place to put care products needed in bed

  8. Need to sleep in a comfy bed

Here are main conclusions:

  • a collection of products usually contain several key "features" that are considered as "must have items" and in addition to them each brand has its own unique products or texture.

  • International brands put an extra attention to Eco-Tex manufacturer and 100% ecological cotton. Israeli's manufacturers does not priorities this matter even tough the current trend.

  • The majority of Israeli Baby linens Textile brands, If they are made in Israel they are manufacturer in the north or in Gaza

The "Green" trend

We see more and more awareness to eco friendly products. Even tough only a specific target audience of buyers will consider it as a lead value, still when compared to a similar product with similar characteristic  this added value might tip the scales towards the green product. 

When designing products to babies and toddlers some assumptions needs to get a special care:

  • Since babies sight reach its full potential only after 4 months it best to show them contrast colors and prints.

  • In the first few months up until babies roll over and crawl they can only change what they see if the move their gaze and head away or towards an object.

  • Babies learn the world firstly by touch and their mouth.

  • Even babies are curios and learn new things all the time (an explore state) they need their relaxing zone that can be reflected as pattern free products, calming pastel colors.

My research had led to Found "Hickery Pickery"

Recognizing the possibilities, along with Identifying the Needs I decided to create a brand that will reflect the followings:

  • Create beautiful and friendly solutions to known needs.

  • Make sure all products has an added value to the buyers (eco friendly, senses development trigger).

  • Manufacturers in Israel 

  • Use of "green nature" concept

Analyze Retrospective

Retrospective conclusions

Had I known shaping a brand is so challenging and complex would I have still done it? You betcha!

This is what I've learned from the process:

  • Building a brand alone is OK. Building a brand with a team is so much better.

  • More babies products are purchased at evenings. (I guess its when the need to

      have them sleep is the strongest at that                time)

Analytics

For analyze the activity I kept checking analytics and insights from social media

Here are some:

  • A buyer spend on average 8 minutes in site if interested and if not leaves after 2 minutes.

  • Most popular item is baby swaddles, after it comes blankets.

  • Most buyers are gifters and the most popular page is newborn sets.

  • The majority of site visitors are woman

  • The majority of online clients are from tel aviv and their age range is 25-34. but also 35-44.

  • Most purchases was done through browsing social media.
