eCommerce impacts growth across all sales channels.

The Shipyard’s eCommerce Growth Engineering Practice brings together D2C data-driven performance with inspiring creative to predictably drive growth across your entire business.


Our Philosophy:
• eCommerce is not just about Digital
• D2C is no longer optional
• Creativity + Data = eCommerce Success
• First Party Data as the Growth Lever
• D2C Relationships need a unique Value Proposition

How can first party data help me to be more efficient and effective with my marketing?

Situation: Scotts Miracle-Gro has a long and successful history of innovating aggressive marketing to make their brands the undisputed leaders in the lawn and garden industry. So how do they continue to grow?

Insight: Use digital to drive offline retail sales by discovering new audiences beyond the obvious homeowner audience as well as new brand adjacencies — much more than a traditional consumer profile would show us.

Solution: Use Scotts first-party data to predict which consumers would be most responsive to which SKUs and messages. Then tap our creative storytelling in a tighter, more compelling way.

Results: Created deeper connections with Scotts’ consumers and drove up sales both online and in stores.

How can eCommerce enhance the brand experience and deepen customer relationships?

Situation: Iconic French global sunglasses brand Bollé needed to turnaround the brand and declining sales.

Insight: Grow the business by motivating new audiences (cycling, skiing, golf, tennis, etc.), each with different cultural and contextual factors that drive their behaviors.

Solution: Micro-campaigns to diverse audiences with dynamic landing pages that reflect the creative story that’s most relevant to them.

Results: Within 30 days of launching our new campaign, retailer orders skyrocketed.

How do I build a D2C business that complements a retail strategy (rather than creating conflict)?

Situation: The leading European Natural Beauty brand Weleda was seeing US sales decline year after year as they were losing share to bigger competitors investment spending to capture leadership positions in the expanding category.

Insight: Weleda’s plant-based products and philosophy of mindfulness have potential to connect with a much wider audience than their current niche appeal.

Solution: A massive real-time experimentation with hundreds of messages tested against millions of audiences revealed 575 profitable audiences. When each performing audience is an incremental revenue stream, scaling to 575 created exponential growth.

Results: Hockey-stick turnaround driving 85% total growth with 150%+ increase D2C.
