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.


An analysis of Gourmet Candy Company Amazon Seller Central and Vendor Central accounts, enabled Acorn-i to identify specific actions to optimise Amazon to maximise success.

We consulted on laying the foundations for retail hygiene, focusing on building strong and engaging content and imagery, and making best use of the promotional services and tools available through the platform to enhance organic growth and sales.

Content Development

By ensuring optimal content layout, Acorn-i delivered success, improving organic search ranking, increasing traffic to product detail and store pages and generating higher conversion rates.

We told the Brand’s story via Enhanced Brand Content, and delivered consistent messaging across their product detail pages.


Our team of in-house experts designed and implemented a Sponsored Brand campaign to achieve a 5X Return on investment.

Leveraging Amazon Sponsored Brands, Acorn-i ensured that Mr Stanley products appeared at the top of relevant search results and took the data learnings of multiple strategies to refine the campaign and maximise success.

What our customers say

We chose to work with Acorn-i over a year ago now and have been delighted with the decision to do so. The support and service levels we have received have been excellent. Acorn-i have proven to be experts in managing Amazon retail and advertising, helping our business grow more than 300% YoY and exceed expectations.

Paul Davison, Managing Director at Nutraformis

The Ignite interface developed by the team at Acorn-i has made significant improvements to how we analyse, report on and allocate resources to Amazon and ultimately enable us to sell more. The tool is easy to use, fast and saves an enormous amount of time it would take us to access this data elsewhere. One of the best products I have seen in this space.

Max Rees, Co-Founder at The Curators

Acorn-i have been fantastic for Dr Will’s. They’ve used data driven insights to help us to build a really scalable business with Amazon and also provided invaluable end-to-end support with launches of new products in new geographies, enabling us to really step up our Amazon business.

Liam White, Co Founder - Dr Wills

David Chisnall, Marketing Manager at You Garden Ltd

Working with Acorn-i has given us the expertise and support we needed to get going on Amazon, and with a solid sales and marketing strategy. 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

Acorn-i’s knowledge of the Amazon platform and the tools and data available to inform our plans selling online has been invaluable. We now see a clear route to market with this important audience, and can better understand the true potential that online selling will deliver for our fast growing business.
