Redefining excellence: Launching a premium offering into a saturated market using Amazon FBA

It’s estimated that the average office worker spends around 1,608 hours a year at a desk, that’s the equivalent of 67 whole days! Acknowledging this fact along with the rise in remote work, Wolvende was launched in late 2022 to fill a gap in the premium office accessories market.

Frustrated with the lack of quality office accessories available, particularly after a disappointing experience with a felt desk mat, Wolvende decided to take matters into their own hands. They aim to design and create quality office accessories that can withstand the rigors of modern working, starting with their flagship product, the Premium Felt Desk Mat. The brand launched on Amazon UK in January 2023, Amazon USA in November 2023 and Amazon EU in January 2024.

The challenge

Wolvende’s biggest challenge centered around the premium price point of their desk mats, initially set between £35 and £45. The market was saturated by similar products within the £15 and £25 price bracket, creating a competitive landscape that made it challenging for the company to break through and gain market share.

The situation was further complicated by the brand’s new presence on Amazon. Without a track record of positive customer reviews, it was difficult to convince shoppers that the desk mats were worth the higher price tag. 

In light of these challenges, the project was defined with three key objectives:

  1. Scale the brand profitably by maintaining a TACoS of <25%
  2. Build social proof by accumulating at least 30 5-star product reviews
  3. Prepare for future marketplace expansion
