Building and operating a new digital-first venture
Weeronline is one of the most popular online weather platforms in the Netherlands. Similar to other online publishers, it was facing challenges to monetize its growing share of mobile traffic. At the same time, management expressed the ambition to become the #1 weather platform in the Netherlands and Belgium and asked SparkOptimus to help with the development of a concrete strategy and plan outlining the steps to make this happen.
„SparkOptimus really helped us by providing excellent operational support and they have built the foundation for result-drivennessâ€ť

First, SparkOptimus helped sharpen the consumer proposition and reviewed the role of various B2B activities. We then identified and assessed alternative business models, evaluated possible marketing strategies, and mapped resulting organizational requirements. Main recommendations were summarized in a crisp 12-point action plan. To track performance, SparkOptimus designed a KPI dashboard to allow for better business forecasts and more focused development efforts. Finally, Weeronline was supported in assessing various launch and monetization strategies for its new mobile app.
SparkOptimus supported Weeronline to lay the foundation for future growth. Through a thorough review of Weeronlineâ€™s proposition and revenue model we were able to pinpoint those actions required to bring Weeronlineâ€™s platform to the next level.
