It has certainly been a busy start to 2021 here at Venture Forge HQ. We are celebrating a duo of client wins in the toys and health sectors, adding a six-figure revenue to the agency’s turnover and strengthening our position as a global Amazon agency.
International biotechnology company Nuritas and UK-based science and educational toy business Trends UK have joined our growing client portfolio in a bid to drive their sales through Amazon.
Nuritas, which is based in Ireland and is backed by U2 frontman Bono and lead guitarist The Edge, has invested in professional Amazon support for its US launch. The company combines artificial intelligence and genomics to discover and unlock natural bioactive peptides, that are found in food proteins and can deliver extraordinary health benefits. We will be working exclusively to launch and grow the brand on Amazon in the US.
Essex-based Trends UK offers a diverse range of top-quality toys, gadgets and gifts for children of all ages. They have appointed us on a two-year contract with a remit to increase brand sales, revenue and market dominance across Amazon in the UK.
“We are extremely proud to have added Nuritas and Trends UK to our portfolio of impressive high-growth e-commerce clients to support them with their ambitious plans.
“Venture Forge experienced tremendous growth in what was globally an incredibly difficult year and we are seeing that continue in 2021 with these two new wins increasing our turnover by 33%. We are able to drive sales in the UK and globally and ensure they remain compliant on complex and constantly changing platforms. Both Nuritas and Trends UK have recognised our expertise in the industry.”
Discussing the appointment of Venture Forge, Trends UK managing director, Lee Clowes adds: “We were impressed by Venture Forge’s expertise and knowledge of Amazon and felt confident in their ability to help drive sales, revenue and market dominance across Amazon in the UK for Trends UK.
“Andrew and the team have delivered fantastic results for a range of global clients and are a trusted partner of Amazon. These credentials and experience can be applied to Trends UK and we are excited to see what results they can deliver.”
The recent client wins follow a record year for our team, with 21 new clients added to the portfolio and existing clients reporting a 450% growth in revenue throughout 2020.
We also announced our repositioning in November 2020 as a global marketplace specialist to reflect our expertise and success in helping brands grow their sales across Amazon.
In December, we also became the first marketplace agency in West Yorkshire to join the prestigious Amazon Service Provider Network – highlighting the agency as an e-commerce expert and a trusted Amazon partner.
