Traditionally, Hotter was a classic mail-order direct marketer and was very dependent on its core existing customers. We have helped the team to broaden their brand appeal and grow the  customer database through robust testing and measurement of new acquisition audiences.

Hotter used the Covid-19 pandemic to supercharge the brand's digital transformation, turning their stores into experiential spaces and fueling huge growth on online channels through new customer acquisition.
