A few words from our clients
Great & fast communication
ESSD helped Australian Bodycare to get the brand started in The Netherlands on the platform bol.com. It has been a pleasure working with ESSD consulting, the communication was great and fast. And I liked that we had a single point of contact. But even though one person took the lead, you could feel that everybody had the best intentions with our brand and made sure to do everything within their power to make it a big success.
Knowledgeable & solution oriented
ESSD played an instrumental role in launching GUNNAR on marketplaces across the EU and UK, including Amazon, Bol and Allegro. Through our global marketplace expansion, we’ve greatly valued the ESSD team’s territory specific knowledge and solution-oriented approach. While working with the ESSD, we’ve been able to rest assured knowing our brand is in good hands.

Entering the European market is incredibly challenging and constantly changing. With ESSD consulting we were surprised at how well they understand the whole European Ecosystem. They were able to help us get products into the country, get listed on the key e-commerce marketplaces, and build sales faster and more efficiently than we would have been able to do ourselves. They helped us scale in the right areas so that we could grow and gain market share and brand awareness. With so many countries and different languages, the European market wasn’t possible to enter without ESSD. We are very happy with the results and attention to detail they gave our brands.
