Profitable ecommerce growth is harder than ever before. So is finding an agency to help you achieve it.


Because for years, revenue was the perfect proxy for success. Drive more paid traffic in allegiance to a single metric: return on ad spend (ROAS).

Then, the digital marketing world changed. Ecommerce brands exploded, incumbents took notice, and online advertising flooded with competition.

The result? A new normal marked by overlapping challenges:

  • Rising costs
  • Declining returns
  • And, narrowing margins

Even as revenue for ecommerce brands grows, profitability shrinks.

Instead of isolated ad spend and single-account ROAS, you need a partner who measures success by the only thing that matters — profit.

Variable Costs

The least-understood, least-sexy … most-critical element of profitable growth.

If costs increase as orders rise, that’s a variable cost. Opposed to fixed costs — like rent and operational overhead — VCs cover COGS, platform and payment processors, pick-and-pack, fulfillment, and CAC: total spend including agency fees.

The real question is two-fold:

  1. How do you measure and optimize variable costs?
  2. Why would an agency want to get so intimately involved?

For the first, we follow a four-quarter accounting matrix. Each represents a portion of your revenue that signals the health of that component as well as areas of opportunity:

For the second question — why we’d want to mix it up in a way few other agencies do — because … we exist to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams

That’s been our mission since day one.

We’re an agency of entrepreneurs. We know what it’s like to run a business; we know what it’s like to watch something grow and thrive against the odds.

Matthew Murray, COO & CMO at Love Wellness
“I’ve partnered with CTC at two separate companies, across four years, and tens of millions in revenue.”

“Through the ups and downs, the team’s commitment to listening, collaborating, and pushing the envelope with out-of-the-box growth tactics is what has kept me on team CTC.

“Too many agencies are a matrix of operational layers, and although our dedicated team at CTC is best-in-class, the fact that its CEO is available solidifies CTC’s commitment to success. This is why I trust them, and you should too.”
