We all know by now the world is shifting more and more to online retail. And it’s incredibly easy to get started, sign up, create a nice looking website and start selling out of your front room or high street store. However, there’s a problem, scaling your online sales is going to require some serious investment and expertise in areas like logistics, supplier management, operations and customer service. That’s where The Moot Group (TMG) comes in. Their BOLT platform will take care of that tricky stuff for you, giving you the boost you need to get to the next level.

If you’re thinking ‘where’s the catch?’, obviously you do pay for all this help, but rather than shelling out upfront, TMG uses a revenue sharing model that means you only pay more when your online business grows. The other key point is that this is designed for high growth businesses, so you’ll need to have that potential for the arrangement to work.

Founded by Nick Moutter in 2019, The Moot Group has already expanded rapidly, powering Nick’s homeware brand Olivia’s to 800% growth in the first quarter of 2021 and signing up well known brands like Sports Direct, Bet365 and The White Company.

And this feels like just the beginning for this ambitious business – TMG is about to open a new office and distribution centre in the US, and the EU and UAE are next on the agenda.
