HOW WE WORK ON THE TOY CO GROWTH BOOSTER PROGRAM

We have limited capacity for this program due to the intensive and focused nature of the way we work, we can run no more than 3 projects at any one time, and especially around toy trade show season (December to February) we are often fully booked. Please get in touch as early as you can to ensure our availability.

COSTS

  • The Platinum package costs £10,500 (British pounds) plus VAT where applicable and takes 3 months to deliver.
  • The Gold package costs £7,000 (British pounds) plus VAT where applicable and takes 2 months to deliver.
  • The Silver package costs £3,500 (British pounds) plus VAT where applicable and takes 1 month to deliver.

Please note, for all new clients we work on an advance payment for each month ahead of beginning work. For existing clients where we have established working and payment relationship and history we can offer more flexibility.

OUR CREDENTIALS

We have run the Toy Co Growth Booster Program process more than 100 times so far. During these projects we have helped toy companies set up new distribution into most major markets around the world, including: USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Spain, China, Benelux, Eastern Europe, Russia, Australia/New Zealand, Japan, the Middle East and more. We have also helped companies in a multitude of other ways along the way, from originating brand names for key new launches through to helping toy companies recruit staff to support growth plans, find factories, build marketing plans and more. Over time we have delivered in excess of $150m of toy and game sales, and 2 brand portfolios we managed sold for in excess of $130m.

WHO’S IT FOR?

This service is designed for toy and games companies who have already established themselves to some degree in the market, but perhaps need help to grow internationally or who need assistance to ramp up and grow to the next level. These companies can typically be from $100k to $30m in size, but the processes, methodologies and deal making facilitation can and have been used for start ups through to $20bn companies. If you are a start up though you should consider whether you have sufficient funding to take on our services and the associated costs alongside all the fundamentals of your business. This service also works for toy factories wanting to move from OEM contract manufacturing to building their own brands and distribution.

OUR GUARANTEE

When we take on a new Consultancy project we commit to delivering fair value for our clients. Sometimes the market is tough, or their product is a hard sell for various reasons. In these circumstances we go out of our way to ensure we have helped our client achieve the best possible results. Sometimes due to the difficulties facing our client’s business we have offered free advice or sales introductions a long time after our working together. Clearly we can’t work for our clients at no cost forever, but we do commit to deliver all the value we can both during the Consultancy project and after if needed to ensure our impact is positive and offers value for the client.
