Fospha, how we help our customers

There is an ever-growing problem in the world of digital marketing which is the difficulty with which brands can measure the effectiveness of their marketing. This is a mission critical problem for brands looking to scale and grow.

The combination of an explosion in the number of direct-to-consumer eCommerce brands and the number of marketing channels through which they advertise (Paid Social, Display, PPC, Offline, TV etc) has led to large number of companies needing help solving this fundemental challenge.

Fospha solves that challenge for their clients by providing a ‘software as a service’ (Saas) solution through their proprietary attribution modelling and client facing dashboards & analytics. Fospha plugs into all of their advertising channels, their website and their eCommerce platform to provide them a market leading attribution model that used machine learning to combine the best of multi-touch-attribution & marketing-mix-modelling across all of their channels.

The result is an independent, single source of truth that allows clients to truly understand the relative effectiveness of their marketing efforts. The outcome being that Fopsha’s clients can make better decisions and acquire and retain customers at a fraction of the cost of their competitors.

Fospha is part of the Blenheim Chalcot Group, a venture incubator with combined sales in excess of £350m per year and £500m of assets under management. Fospha have been operating fully remotely since March 2020 and are excited to be in aggressive growth mode having recently secured a round of investment.
