Halifax ecommerce agency secures project wins worth £90k

Venture Forge, an ecommerce specialist based in Halifax, has secured five new project wins totally £90,000.

The project wins come as the firm celebrates eighteen months in business and were announced alongside a larger office, four award nominations and a new, bespoke Amazon service offering.

Launched by former head of ecommerce for Matalan, Andrew Banks, in spring 2018, the agency has now launched its own Amazon Strategy and Management Service to help brands maximise their online sales potential.

It has spent the past six months developing the offering in response to Amazon representing the biggest ecommerce channel for companies looking to rapidly grow their online sales.

The agency’s latest client win and first to sign up to its Amazon service is ERA Home Security, one of the UK’s largest home security product companies.

The firm has appointed Venture Forge to create and manage a bespoke Amazon sales strategy for its Homeguard range of smart home burglar alarm systems.

In addition to ERA Home Security, Venture Forge has recently been appointed by cycling distributor Zyro Fisher to review its Amazon strategy, SW James Sofas to lead its ecommerce strategy, Equiflair Saddlery to re-platform the business’s online offering to Shopify and it has secured further strategy projects from William Lamb Footwear, Rainbow Designs, which specialises in licensed products, and Vernacare, a global medical supplies business.

The company has recently acquired new office space in the Croft Myl development, Halifax, to accommodate its growth and accompanying team expansion.

The bigger unit is close to the Mill’s roof garden, as well as several break-out areas and coffee shop, and supports Venture Forge’s aim of creating a better internal culture where staff have a choice of areas to work from.
