New disruptor carves a bold space for interiors procurement.

Identifying the problem

A celebrated interior design agency looks to expand its services and impact by launching a new procurement business. The firm’s most pressing priorities were establishing systems that supported scaling and launching as a disruptor in a space filled with seasoned, established, competitors.

Scrap Strategies identified gaps in the market, built a go-to-market strategy, and managed the launch that shook up the stale procurement industry.

Creating a solution

Our collaboration began with a deep dive into the partner to understand their distinguishers. We then continued on to do a deep audit of the competitive landscape and climate to identify opportunities in the space, what potential clients sought, and the intersections where the firm was uniquely positioned to deliver.

Gut-guided hypotheses backed by data-informed research.

Leveraging the client’s legacy knowledge to gain an understanding of the industry, we then embarked on a journey of research to identify what the market was missing, yearned for, and celebrated. Our research and analysis consisted of the following activities:

  • Internal workshop facilitation

  • Competitor identification

  • Competitor audit

  • SEO and keyword research

  • Cultural landscape research

  • Target audience research

  • SWOT analysis

  • Market gap analysis

Equipped with a deep understanding of the landscape, we proceeded to develop a strategy that would resonate with the client’s natural strengths and their target audience. Our partner was then provided a positioning and messaging strategy document and detailed go-to-market (GTM) plan.

Yielding Strategic Results


Guided by a clear positioning strategy, we partnered with Washington, D.C.-based design studio, Studio Delphine, to bring this new disruptor to market. Company launch, asset development, and support services included advising on the following:

  • Full brand suite

  • Mobile optimized website with CRM integration

  • Lead capture automation

  • Launch digital assets

  • Branded administrative assets

  • Dynamic proposal template


Distinguished company branding to compete in the seasoned market, clear positioning and investment requirement to fulfill a multi-year strategy, and systems to support business maturity. Having a defined strategy from launch not only supports business longevity but also allowed a 100% on-time eight-week delivery of the entire agreement.
