We do this through our proven growth-focused D2C Accelerator methodology, which is built on the fundamentals of world-class performance marketing, social-first creative production, financial planning and empowerment through mentoring & training.

We work with some of the world’s largest bricks and mortar retail brands and businesses, as well as ambitious, well-funded digital native brands.

The Bolt Digital team includes CFOs, award-winning creatives and world-class performance marketers.

YOUR CHALLENGES

CREATIVE

PLATFORM & CRO

How to ensure your website is suitable for mobile-first shopping and maximise conversion, email automation, technology platforms and tools. We are specialists in developing Shopify websites and re-platforming brands to Shopify.

FORECASTING & ROI

How does the performance of your marketing campaigns translate to the reality of sales, margins and long term profitability.

TALENT & TEAM

How to find, recruit and retain new talent in a highly competitive sector and combine the talents and abilities of external marketing partners and agencies with in-house talent.

SCALING

How to effectively scale your brand via increasing media buy, channels and territories.

OUR D2C ACCELERATOR METHODOLOGY

The biggest challenge facing most brands is the existence of an overwhelming number of digital marketing tactics, confusion between vanity metrics and performance metrics, and the lack of a clear system that underpins all growth activity. 

The world’s most ambitious D2C brands have proven is there are only 3 things that matter when it comes to driving D2C growth. Our methodology is focused on gathering data around these three key levers and multiplying a brand’s performance within each.

Bolt Digital

01.

TELL YOUR STORY THROUGH A FUNNEL

Our proprietary customer & creative customer journey planning workshop helps us deeply understand your brand and how to guide your customers from discovery through to purchase using highly personalised layered messaging and calls to action.

02.

INCUBATE

The D2C Accelerator Incubate phase gathers and analyses real world data on how the brand and adverts perform in the highly competitive D2C environment. This informs budgets (what advertising spend will be needed to drive your desired revenue goals), future potential and ROI.

03.

PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS LAB

Detailed weekly reporting, alongside predictive analytics allows you to understand how your Brand is performing against key D2C Metrics and how the performance of your campaigns translates to the reality of sales, margins and long term profitability.

04.

EXPAND & EMPOWER

We either work as a fully outsourced performance marketing and creative department for your business, taking on all aspects of digital marketing, or we work in a hybrid or phased model (where we take on key aspects of digital marketing and work alongside your existing team).

05.

INHOUSE OR PARTNERSHIP

For some brands, the most effective future-proofing will be to employ an in house team. We have a disruptive methodology to acquire the best talent in the market, incubate them and transfer to you. For others, a meaningful growth partnership is the ideal solution. In cases like this, we always look have ‘skin in the game’ and with aligned commercial interests.
