About the eCommerce offering

The eCommerce consultancy offering is largely focused on technology and customer experience, with projects ranging from eCommerce platform selection or hands-on replatforming support to roadmap definition and internationalisation work. You can see more on team members below, but we have three eCommerce consults - one technical architect, one solutions specialist and one product owner.

Key services we provide include initial replatforming requirements gathering, platform selection support & due diligence, partner selection, UX auditing, roadmap definition, continuous improvement programs and project-based eCommerce support (hands-on delivery of tasks).

Paid Media

About the paid media offering

Vervaunt provide managed paid media services to a wide range of brands and retailers, including O’Neills, Lulu Guinness, MUJI, PMT Music, Borough Kitchen, Alto Music, Alexa Chung, Self Portrait and lots of others. Our service spans across all paid channels (search, social, shopping, display, Amazon advertising etc) and our offering is geared around being more hands-on and more technical.

We only work with retail businesses and we tend to be more involved than the average agency, running regular discovery sessions with different teams to better understand the client's business, inventory / availability, technology, margins etc.

Vervaunt's History

Vervaunt was founded in September 2017, with a goal of creating a market-leading paid media service for mid-market retailers and a hands-on eCommerce consultancy offering. These remain the only two services that Vervaunt offer and the key focuses within the two departments remain the same.

Paul (Rogers) and Josh (Duggan) started Vervaunt having worked together on a number of projects for some of Paul's consultancy clients, with Josh helping to deliver proof-of-concept paid media campaigns for wholesale-led companies. Paul was working as a Consultant after leaving his role as a Director of an eCommerce agency and Josh was freelancing, having previously worked in paid media for two large media agencies.
