Bulb Energy

Founded by Hayden and Amit, who met whilst working in the energy industry, they saw Inefficiency, poor service, expensive tariffs and dirty energy as major problems to solve. They set out to change it, with simpler, cheaper, greener energy. 

They launched Bulb, which quickly became the fastest growing private businesses in the UK.

Simpler
They make energy simpler – so they make your life easier. You can switch to Bulb in 2 minutes. They’ve got one, simple tariff for all. And you can speak to a human when you have a question.

Cheaper
They make energy cheaper – so they help you save money. We invest in technology to reduce costs. And we pass savings on to our members.

Greener
They make energy greener – so we help protect our planet. They provide 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon neutral gas to all our members as standard.

Daleth was brought in to support their growth strategy and implementation with a new product launch. 

Project Overview 

Build Energy had a range of growth projects, once of which was Bulb for Business.

It had grown organically for a year, leveraging the consumer brand and existing strategy. They had reached a plateau and wanted to kick start their Bulb For Business growth. This is what we came into to support.

The main requirements were:

  • Improve growth trajectory of new revenue and customer acquisition
  • Get clear visibility and control over the core levers for growth
  • Clear understanding of unit economics, both aggregate and per channel

Our approach with Bulb

Website Performance & User Story Mapping

Analysed the acquisition funnel, from channel to marketing automation to identify areas of weakness and key opportunities for growth.

User story mapping assisted in discovering questions not being answered in the acquisition funnel.

Organic landscape and missed opportunities

Search landscape analysis to identify biggest opportunities in organic growth strategy

Sitewide technical audit to define a more robust informational architect and query mapping

Paid media analysis

Running a paid account audit, we identified both channel opportunities and missing channels in the omnichannel approach

Analytics Audit 

Full analytics audit, enabled us to identify a range of key events that were broken, but were being used for paid advertising optimisation.
