Metrilo Updates and News will keep you updated on all new features we release within our customer analytics platform and how to make the best use of them for growing your ecommerce business.
Beauty is one of the sectors where direct-to-consumer brands are taking a lead. The traditional market for cosmetics seems to be lacking in variety and accessibility while customers want more and better solutions for their beauty needs. Direct-to-consumer democratizes the access to specialized products, high-end makeup and natural products, to name a few consumer trends to watch. This is why we have every reason to believe more and more DTC beauty brands will be successful.
To help smaller brands get there, we gathered data from the beauty brands we work with on a daily basis to make key ecommerce metrics benchmarks available.
Native is one of the few wildly successful DTC brands that got acquired – by no other but Procter & Gamble for the incredible sum of $100 million in cash only 2.5 years after launch. They had only one product at the time of the acquisition and 8 employees.
We are insanely happy to have shared Native’s journey from 0 to hero as their trusted analytics platform. Native’s founder Moiz Ali, who now is on our advisory board, doesn’t hide he uses Metrilo daily and this level of control over the business performance helped hugely to get where they are today.
That’s why we’d like to go over the tactics that Native used, the concrete focus points that brought them success.
