    The Overlooked Opportunity for DTC Brands at £5-20m

    Super simple thing lots of DTC brands stuck at a certain revenue plateau are ignoring right now:

    Quick story.

    We’ve got an incredible client, with an incredible product that happens to be repeat-purchase.

    Here’s what their prospects had to do to become customers:

    • Choose what months they wanted delivery
    • Choose what frequency within those months they wanted delivery
    • Choose between three very closely related, hard to differentiate products on different pages
    • Choose the volume of each product they wanted
    • Choosing the offer they wanted to redeem

    Talk about paradox of choice. No wonder growth was slow.

    Here’s what we did:

    • Push the majority of spend to one hero, best selling, clearest value prop product
    • Remove all choice, leaving just one decision: subscribe on this offer or don’t
    • Pivot pricing to be more closely on par with competition (extremely difficult in this industry to differentiate enough to charge >50% more than direct competitors)
    • Downgraded language on the page, making it so a 10 year old could understand it

    Basically, we just removed the burden of choice for prospects, simplifying everything to build an acquisition engine around what showed promise for the business.

    • They’re profitable!
    • We’re scaling, growing fast again
    • Stock is easier to forecast
    • Cash conversion cycle is dramatically reduced
    • The team’s singing from the same hymn sheet
    • Simplified all operations from web dev through to creative strategy, production, creator sourcing and design
    • The founders are finally excited and have renewed energy

    Simplification is a superpower in DTC growth.

    You need an incredible paid media team – that’s a given – but never forget that they’re amplifying all of your other efforts.

    Find a partner with deep DTC expertise who can help you spot the unique growth challenges that you’re probably too close to the business to see, then lean in.
