We’ve supported some of the major independent retail brands in the UK and abroad, taking their online sales profits beyond their expectations.
Major retailers have benefitted from our advice on stock repositioning, rebranding and how to repurpose existing e-commerce sites or other vital online sales assets.

Minimum advertised pricing (MAP) policies are particularly critical to manufacturers who sell their products for online resale – we help our clients set these prices in order to best serve their online customers.
We also help our clients set the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP), list price or recommended retail price (RRP) of a product, which is the price the manufacturer recommends that the retailer sell the product for. Getting this right can be crucial for online and offline sales revenue.
Sometimes a product is superb, but its visual presentation is a block to sales success. Maybe the packaging unhelpfully hides the excellent product within, or it fails to entice customers enough to pick it up and explore its benefits.
Our talented branding, graphic design and illustration professionals work in 3D, print, web and digital formats. They can design solutions for every aspect of your product packaging, company logo and brand identity, visual merchandising, videos, photography and illustration.
If you have a great product idea, we have the expertise and contacts to make the entire process of planning its development, production and distribution very easy. We research all similar products already on the market, leading on design and 3D printing of product packaging prototypes.
We explore all the required materials, manufacturing options and costs of production. We’ll organise your product testing for industry safety and regulatory compliance, getting your product samples ready to begin sales meetings.
Business communication is no longer all about securing column inches in the traditional print media, but positive PR, whether online or offline, does help to get your good news and successes noticed by target customers. It’s also important to get your brands and key people seen and admired in all the right places.
We can find out where your target customers are hanging out and start talking with them about things you’re doing that they’re interested in.
Hiring our professional outsourced Press Office will underpin any strong business and sales strategy, whilst mitigating against any future negative PR and averting communications crises.
Our PR experts help to highlight the positive and prepare you well for anything negative that might happen to your business.

Having a great product idea and strong brand identity is just the start of your journey towards profitability and business success.
When you’re ready to start the manufacturing process, you will need to make many vitally important decisions about how to get your products to your customers (i.e. “logistics”).
Our team can advise you on all the options on logistical decisions you will need to make (e.g. size, weight and volume of the product, calculations on how many will fit a standard box, pallet and container size, whether or not you will need bespoke box design).
We can also help you to calculate the costs of freight and shipping, and to find reliable suppliers for air, sea and road transport. Understanding what import duties will apply to your consignments, how to manage the Customs paperwork and all the insurance risks are part of the logistics services we can provide.
Get in touch if you’d like advice on how to organise your logistics to reduce risks and maximise profit.
