Camptoo applies the lean startup method to their business. They have never really focussed on a specific target group when introducing their service to the market. This caused that nowadays there is a lack of overview on their current customers nor do they have an idea of a potential customer segment that will generate profit by either making a booking or listing a RV at the website. A motorhome or a caravan is for most people quite a valuable asset. One of the main struggles for Camptoo is to find out who is willing to share their motorhome or caravan and how to target them. As a result of several research activities, a new and clear positioning and personas are presented to make it easier for Camptoo to connect with their target segments but also to establish a foundation for marketing activities. To generate growth for Camptoo a marketing strategy is suggested. This strategy is based on the principle: let current users spread word-of-mouth to build trust among potential users. The focus of the strategy lies on RV owners since dual-sided rental marketplaces all compete on offer. A referral program is designed to create awareness to non Camptoo users. It stimulates current owners and renters to spread word-of-mouth, making it more trustworthy than traditional marketing. The marketing roadmap shows all the marketing activities over time to create awareness and build trust among RV owners.
