The Blue Vine Offering has 4 main pillars to its service; Market Analysis, Market Entry Strategy, Technical Communications and Technical Consulting & Proposal Writing

Market Analysis

Blue Vine Consultants offer a market analysis service which enables our clients to understand their customers & markets better. Whilst technical communications are an excellent B2B tool, some businesses primarily sell their products to consumers. Through quantitative and qualitative research we are able to help companies better understand their market. This leads to identification of new opportunities, increased product sales and more satisfied customers..

Market Entry Strategy

Blue Vine Consultants develop bespoke strategies allowing our clients to identify the correct markets and route to that market for their products or services. These strategies are built upon sound analysis and intelligence enabling our clients to exploit new markets. This results in successful market entry or expansion within current markets, entry into new markets and ultimately increased revenue generation for our clients.

Technical Communications

We offer a bespoke service of high end white papers and technical communications. Our white papers are persuasive tools that use empirical evidence to promote a certain product, service, or viewpoint. We help our clients to tell their stories with white papers based on facts, not hype. Blue Vine has extensive experience writing and delivering high quality communications with over 25 papers written to date. Our white papers help to get our clients product, process or service into the minds of prospects, ultimately leading to greater sales generation.

Technical Consulting & Proposal Writing 

Blue Vine also offers the services of technical consulting and proposal writing for companies in the automotive, energy and technology sectors. Technical consulting includes conducting well-to-wheel analyses for low carbon vehicles and technical assessments of new technologies. This helps our clients when conducting due diligence for future investments. Blue Vine has extensive experience in proposal writing, especially EU Horizon 2020 projects, meaning we can assist consortia in the writing of proposals and also in project coordination.
