The SCARLETT small appliance brand, founded in 1996, is now one of Russia’s most famous and sought-after brand. Its products are also widely represented in CIS, Baltic, and Eastern Europe. SCARLETT manufactures products in more than 40 categories. The company’s annual sales exceed 5.5 million units and are steadily growing.
In 2019, the brand decided to launch D2C online sales. That summer, Syntes and SCARLETT signed a collaborative agreement followed by launching the official online store (scarlett.ru). The initial store offered about 200 SKU’s (Stock Keeping Unit, commodity items). By mid-2020, SCARLETT online products appeared on leading Russian marketplaces (Goods.ru (SberMegaMarket as of 2021), Ozon, Beru (part of Yandex. Market as of 2021) and Wildberries.
The natural increase in sales after the launch of D2C channels coincided with the explosive growth of online sales worldwide due to COVID restrictions and inability to buy in a brick & mortar store, proving the company’s digital transformation was timely and effective.
Omni-channels contributed to the overall SCARLETT sales growth. Fair-priced products of a recognizable brand would be competitive in any product category, attracting buyers who had been purchasing elsewhere. Brand presence on marketplaces becomes no less important than the brand official online store, and marketplaces bring a significant share of orders.
