Marketplace agency

If you aren’t selling on marketplaces, you’re leaving money on the table. If you are on marketplaces, why not scale up your success?

Nearly half (48%) of online shoppers head straight to a large eCommerce marketplace. You could be taking advantage of this large audience of potential customers by expanding onto a marketplace or by optimising your current marketplace. From our experience, if you’re not generating an average of 25% of your brand's total revenue from marketplaces, you need to change something.

Although marketplaces aren’t right for every brand, they are right for the majority of brands. If you think your brand belongs on a marketplace, you’re probably right.

You know that your business could be generating so much more revenue. But you need someone to help you achieve this. Whether you haven’t got the resources, don’t have the time, or just don’t know where to start, Contrast is ready to help you achieve real financial results.

Customers going to marketplaces have a high intent to purchase. Capturing this demand is a vital part of our proven growth framework. Our demand capture approach uses PPC and SEO methods to capture these bottom of the funnel customers.

Our approach

Our structured approach ensures that your business goals are efficiently and successfully met.

To have a successful marketplace, we need to first identify opportunities for improvement within your marketplace (or setting one up). We will then use our creative team to generate the creative content that will boost your product listings. Finally we will use paid and organic marketing methods to promote your store and listings.

  • Data analysis

    To be able to make effective improvement, we first need to evaluate the performance of what you’re currently doing (or not doing). We will gain insight into your business goals and we will work with you to identify the best marketplaces to use and optimise. If you already have a marketplace, we will identify which of your products have the most views but least sales so we know where to start to get you quick and long lasting results.

  • Listing optimisation

    We ensure your store and products are set up for promotion using our SEO methods. This ensures long-term promotion and means your products will continuously rise in the marketplace SERPs. To get quicker results we also use paid media. This gets you in front of your audience now, increasing your conversion rates which also contributes to your organic marketplace SERPs rankings.

  • Promotion

    You need to think about the results pages as real estate of which some is organic but a high proportion in paid ads. If you aren’t also running ads you are letting your competitors earn more revenue. Whether you are just launching a new product or have an established listing there are paid strategies for both. We’ll work with you to understand your unit economics to see which products we can profitably promote. From there we'll build out the paid campaigns and continuously optimise them to try and generate more revenue.
