Research Strategy

To determine the competitive advantage of each of the companies, we leveraged information from their websites, specifically information published by the company highlighting how their features and benefits differentiated them from their competitors. Target market was determined by reading customer success stories and viewing customer success videos. These stories and videos were published by the companies on their website and social media accounts, indicating that they were the types of customers the companies served and specialized in.

Pricing data was not published for Clearchoice or Hybridge, as both companies stated that implant services are dependent on multiple factors and can only be determined through consultation. We then attempted to locate pricing data for Clearchoice and Hybridge through affiliate providers. This provided the same result noting that consultation was necessary for pricing quotes. Next, we scoured review sites such as Authority Dental and Real Self. Here we were able to obtain an estimate of Clearchoice pricing, however, no pricing data was located for Hybridge. Finally, we attempted to locate news articles or industry reports that might reveal Hybridge pricing. We were able to find one news article from 2017 that provided a review but a link to an affiliate dentist was given to obtain an estimate. The affiliate dentist link that was provided requires consultation for pricing. While we were able to determine a probable price range for Affordable, it should be noted that prices vary by location and service. The price range provided was an example of one location.
