    ALLAN'S COMMENTS: We are working with a very large, well-established online retailer of firearms, scopes, and accessories in their search for a Director of Ecommerce based in the rural northeast USA.


    About the Market

    As you've probably heard, the U.S. market for firearms and accessories is MASSIVE. Some estimates say there are more than 350 million guns in circulation, but the exact number doesn't really matter. You know how you feel about guns. I'm not here to convince you of anything you don't already believe.

    Suffice it to say that America has one of the largest civilian-owned firearm populations in the world, and that market includes handguns, rifles, shotguns, and various specialized firearms. Sales of firearms have been influenced by factors such as changes in gun regulations, political events, and concerns about personal safety.

    The market for firearm accessories is also significant, and it includes a wide range of products such as scopes, optics, grips, holsters, magazines, ammunition, cleaning kits, gun safes, and more. Accessories cater to a diverse group of firearm owners, from sport shooters to hunters to collectors.

    The industry is subject to federal, state, and local regulations which can influence the market, and changes in laws or regulations on certain accessories can impact consumer behavior.

    Against this backdrop, the rise of ecommerce has made it easier for consumers to access a firearms and accessories online, which has contributed to the industry's growth. Here's where things get interesting ...

    About the Company

    Founded more than 15 years ago, the company gained traction quickly and preemptively expanded its ops infrastructure, doubling down on its model from a fulfillment, inventory acquisition, and key supplier standpoint, buying from a slew of very high-end manufacturers.

    Today, the company is among the fastest-growing firms in its category, and it will likely double or triple in size in the next five years. The firm sells high-margin products its competitors cannot always get, and HOW it buys inventory is itself a key to the company's success. Very creative. Very unorthodox.

    About the Role

    Assuming you are an established Director of Ecommerce with a large DTC ecom company, your job will be to GROW OUR CLIENT'S BUSINESS. Full stop.

    What that means, first and foremost, is you will be leading the firm's marketing and ecommerce functions. Its current ecommerce business exceeds well exceeds 9-figures, and there's plenty of long, straight road ahead for the category.

    This role is almost entirely about Direct to Consumer (minus online marketplaces), and we're looking for a proven Marketing Top-Gun who can take this DTC business to the level. At a high level, that means selling ...

    1. OLD products to OLD customers,
    2. OLD products to NEW customers,
    3. NEW products to OLD customers, and
    4. NEW products to NEW customers

    That's it. Do that profitably and you'll be a hero.

    Increasingly, first-time buyers are a larger percentage of the company's total business, yet admittedly, the team could be more process-driven in its approach to acquisition. Beyond that, the company could be doing a better job leveraging data in its loyalty, retention, and reactivation efforts.

    See a trend here?

    Of course you do! The good news is that, largely because of its unique business model, the company has enjoyed explosive growth. But now it's time to professionalize the disciplines.

    • This is normal.
    • This is natural.
    • The is not a turnaround.

    It's simply time to scrutinize ecommerce marketing best practices and bring the most relevant to bear on the business. Not the first time you've heard this. With 9-figures in DTC sales, the firm is obviously doing a lot right. It's your job to figure out what that is and put a scalable process around it.

    More science. Less art.

    That means unpacking the firm's email channel. Tons of low-hanging fruit there. Too much to get into here. It also means taking a good hard look at the firm's organic and paid search channels and agencies, its merchandising and onsite experience initiatives, reviewing its CRM and database marketing programs, and overseeing the re-platforming of it's ecom site.

    Meanwhile ...

    There's a lot to scrutinize in terms of the team and its approach to marketing -- some of which may be A-OK, some of which might not be. Like buying a great house with some "deferred maintenance issues:" This role will be loaded with pleasant surprises, opportunities, and frankly, some things to teardown and rebuild.

    You won't believe how much we know about this search ...

    I spent a ton of time on the phone with the client teasing out exactly what you’ll need to KNOW and DO to hit the ground running in this role. Some of the things I can share with highly qualified candidates include ...

    2. The top five problems that exist due to this position being open. These are the little brush fires you will be expected to put out during your first month on the job. Every ecommerce job has these — and this one's no different.
    3. What your average day/week will look like in this role. There's what you read in the standard ecommerce job posting ... then there's reality. We've got the reality.
    4. The leading and lagging KPIs that will determine your success in this role. In a nutshell: How you'll keep score.
    5. The major projects you’ll need to complete by Day 100 to be considered a home-run in this position. We’ve got the lowdown on how you can plug-and-play and drive REAL value in this ecommerce job.
