About the brand

Gourmet Candy Company were looking for support in driving brand awareness of the Mr Stanley’s range on Amazon and improving their product listings. The goal was to build a strong sales channel via the creation and development of an e-commerce strategy. Acorn-i managed the full end-to-end process and advised on improving engagement with customers.

Increasing our efforts and sales on Amazon has been a project we have been wanting to push for some time, but with minimal knowledge and support we have found it tricky to navigate. Working with Acorn-i has given us the expertise and support we needed to get it going in the right direction and with a solid sales and marketing strategy behind it. I would highly recommend working with Acorn-i to any company that is currently selling or wanting to sell via Amazon.Paul Hillman CEO Gourmet Candy Company
