Competitive Research Tools for Challenger Brands

  • Alexa – Identify customer targets.
    Alexa, which is owned by Amazon, ranks websites based on traffic volume. It provides deep analytics of bounce rate, daily pageviews per visitor, time spent on site, demographics, etc.

  • MOAT – Understand competitor ads.
    MOAT is a fast way to see the creative of all your competitors’ display ads, all at once. Just enter the brand name and click search.

  • Claritas – Determine target demographics.
    Claritas allows you to analyze markets based on geo-demographic segments and identify target consumer groups for your product.

  • SEMrush – Determine target psychographics.
    With SEMrush you can view the backlinks of competitor brands to see the websites and blogs that drive traffic to them. From there, you can better understand the attitudes and behaviours of people that read those sites, which are prospective customers of your competitors.

  • Facebook Audience Insights – Build out potential audiences.
    Facebook Audience Insights allows you to create an advertising audience targeting your potential customers. You can add geographic, age and gender filters. It will then give you insights on demographics and behaviours for your potential customers. You can then refine further to your core target and use it later – when you’re ready – for Facebook ads leading to your website.
