In January 2018 Deloitte conducted a representative survey of German sports consumers. More than a third of all active Germans practice fitness sports, closely followed by swimming, walking/hiking, and running. Active Germans spend an average of 6.4 hours per week on sports across all activities.
On average, active Germans spend about €725 a year on sports and almost 30% expect to spend even more next year.
The largest share is spent on sport-related travel activities (e.g. camping, hiking or surfing), followed by membership fees for sports and fitness clubs and sportswear.
In view of the competition between stationary trade and online shops, it is important to know which factors determine the loyalty of a customer to his preferred shopping channel. Interestingly, for both groups of buyers, price is the most promising measure to encourage consumers to change channel.
We started looking for price intelligence software because we found that our products (like most e-retailers) are extremely price sensitive. We therefore needed an accurate, automatic and timely method to collect market prices. The tool helped us a lot in providing a basic logic for our pricing structure. As a result, our pricing was optimized from a cost-based to a market-based pricing structure, improving revenue and profitability.
Now we know what price to put on number one. This tool has helped to increase the CVR because we know what price to set at the lowest and what prices to set to maximize profit. The customer support has been exceptionally valuable. From the first moment, brainbis’ customer support team was very reactive and always extremely helpful. Most remarkable is the speed with which the Customer Success Team delivers a solution to your request.

Annual expenditure per person in Germany in Euro (2018)
- More sales 10% 10%
- Greater gross profit 20% 20%
- Higher customer satisfaction 16% 16%
The results are astounding
Sales have increased by 10% from month to month. There are other factors that have had a positive impact on sales growth, but we are sure that a better price position has contributed a lot. What is more striking is that we are achieving a significantly higher profit (approx. 20%) with the same sales volume. So, even without sales growth, brainbi has had a very positive impact through more efficient pricing.
