The Case Assignment
How would you grow Coinsource B2B Sales?
Since 2015, Coinsource has been able to validate the demand for easy-to-use Bitcoin ATMs for consumers. After validating the B2C model, in 2020 they launched a B2B approach, which enables enterprise customers from around the world to leverage their technology and infrastructure to own and operate their own network of Bitcoin ATMs. This turnkey Platform as a Service (Paas) model is enabling Coinsource to grow into the go-to standard for Bitcoin ATMs.
There are currently over 14,000 Bitcoin ATMs globally; 6,000 of those are located in the US alone. Bitcoin ATMs are growing 250% faster compared to the launch of traditional ATMs in the 1980s and 1990s. Coinsource anticipates there will be over 100,000 Bitcoin ATMs within the next 3-5 years and aims to control that market.
The goal for Coinsource is to provide and sell the underlying software that powers at least 80% of Bitcoin ATMs through their B2B Strategy. Coinsource wants your help in expanding the adoption of their Platform as a Service (PaaS) model so they can grow into the global leader of Bitcoin ATMs.
You have been brought on-board as a consultant to help Coinsource grow the adoption of their B2B PaaS model. You are tasked with developing and proposing a strategy that will help Coinsource effectively build awareness, develop interest, and encourage loyalty by their target customers.
- Who is the target audience for Coinsource’s B2B Strategy?
- How does Coinsource offer a solution that’s superior to the competition?
- What strategies would you use to market, communicate, and sell this product? And why?
To answer the above questions successfully, consider the following:
- Coinsource’s target customers.
- Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, and how they are used by consumers.
- Bitcoin ATMs, and how they are different from Cryptocurrency Exchanges.
- How Bitcoin (and other Cryptocurrencies) serve as an alternative to fiat currency and traditional banking.
- The importance of compliance in this industry.
