It has certainly been a busy start to the first half of the year here at Venture Forge HQ. We are celebrating a new client win in the sporting industry – which is our seventh client win since the start of 2021, increasing the agency’s revenue by 75%.
The award-winning sports nutrition brand OTE Sports has appointed us on a two-year contract with a remit to increase brand sales, revenue and market dominance across Amazon in the UK and EU.
Leeds-based OTE Sports offers a range of naturally flavoured energy gels, energy drinks, bars and recovery drinks. The naturally flavoured products have been developed by experienced sports nutritionists and athletes to bring consumers the best tasting and most effective products.
“We are excited to announce OTE Sports as the latest brand to join our rapidly growing portfolio of impressive e-commerce clients. We will be able to apply our knowledge and expertise as a trusted Amazon partner to help their award-winning sports nutrition products grow across the marketplace.
“We demonstrated to the team how we can help them drive Amazon sales in the UK and across the EU and are excited to be able to activate our strategy. Adding OTE Sports to our client base follows a significant period of growth for the agency over the past 12 months.”
Discussing the appointment of Venture Forge, OTE Sports head of sales Max Dillon added: “We understand the importance of Amazon to us as a business, but we lacked the initial confidence to invest in the marketplace until we met Andrew and the Venture Forge team.
“We were impressed by their knowledge and expertise and trust their ability to drive sales, revenue and market dominance across the platform.
“Signing a two-year deal with Andrew and his team gives them the time and opportunity to deliver fantastic results for our business and help our brand grow across the UK and EU until 2023.”
Winning the client by direct outreach, it follows a significant period of growth for Venture Forge, with two new Amazon account managers also recently joining the team, increasing our headcount by 33%. In addition to recruiting, we have also recently introduced remote working on a permanent basis.
Our new remote working programme will allow all our current and future team members to work remotely and has been created in partnership with Regus, allowing us to offer remote offices around the globe, giving us the freedom to recruit talent from all over the world and offer hot desking space in multiple locations.
