How we diagnosed sales drivers and barriers in family history research


Faced with falling income, the General Register Office (GRO) wanted to understand the family history market and the customer journey. In particular, the use of birth, death and marriage (BMD) certificates, and drivers and barriers to sales volume, income and operating cost recovery.

Researching family history researchers



Created  mathematical formulae and statistical models to predict future sales by analysing and also correlating sales and effects over 10 years.
In addition, provided new insights on existing and potential family history researchers, the market and BMD sales drivers and barriers.
Devised new product, promotion and pricing strategies to meet the GRO’s public sector marketing objectives. These then provided a foundation and focus for growth.

To trace your family tree use the General Register Office‘s services – as used exclusively by a very large proportion of genealogists.
