Europe's Leading Sales Agency Driving Growth Online and in Retail Stores
Supported 50+ brands to scale in EMEA, both online and in Premium Retail
Our team is a collection of vastly experienced experts with a deep understanding of what it takes to succeed. Our ‘service pillars’ are broadly defined in to 6 categories and designed to help our partners better understand the journey to success.
Before entering a new market it is critical that you are prepared. There may be different rates of VAT to consider, specific channel margin requirements, local certifications as well as packaging (and app) translations. Although it may be your first time launching in the EMEA market, we have done it many times before. As your local team we will cut through the complexity and get your products in to the market.
The right online strategy is vital. Not only will it maximise your ecommerce sales, it will also support your retail business. Poor customer reviews are as much a problem for retail buyers as they are for consumers. Our expertise ensures your products are well merchandised and optimised for discoverability. And the good news is that with the right strategy, it is possible to sell products online in Europe without the pricing challenges everyone talks about!
As you think about entering any new market it's important to consider which retailers are the best fit. You may have some aspirational retailers you want to work with, you may be relevant to particular demographics or there may be some obvious channels where the product is most likely to sell. The most important thing is that your target consumers discover your product in the stores at which they shop.
Acting as your brand’s sales team, we work to appoint the right partners from our tried and tested network of 200+ distributors based on your product category and strategic objectives. Finding the right distribution partners for your brand is the first step, we then proactively put together and execute a sales strategy through all the contacts we have across 400+ retailers within the the EMEA and APAC territories.
You may already be familiar with online sales through your own website in your home market. When you launch internationally you'll need to consider logistics, currencies, localisation and certification. Amazon is the dominant player in many geographies but they don't trade in every market. We can help you sell online and we can connect you with the right online partners in every market.
Establishing the right partner network is only the beginning when tackling the EMEA territory. We work closely with each distributor you are listed with, checking in regularly and building sales forecasts, agreeing local marketing initiatives and delivering customer training. We will also consult with you to ensure that your product roadmap is robust and interesting enough to satisfy retailer and ultimately, consumer demand.
