Rainforest Digital Acquisition
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” — Steve Jobs
To our friends, incredible clients and industry colleagues:
Since launching Rainforest Digital October, 1st 2017, our team has had an amazing opportunity to serve a fantastic collection of clients with Search, Social, Digital Strategy and Amazon Marketing Services. We began Rainforest Digital as a way to introduce AMS (Amazon Marketing Services) to the Canadian Marketplace in preparation for Amazon’s role out of AMS in November of 2017. In launching Rainforest, our partners could never have imagined how quickly it would grow to reach wider markets for our customers, as well as help our clients scale on Amazon.
Today we are pleased to announce that Rainforest Digital is joining forces with Jan Kelley and have entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired as of April 10th, 2018. The last 6 months have been an incredible journey for Rainforest Digital and it’s partners. There have been many moments of celebration, surprises and victories. We’re excited to see Rainforest Digital’s services continue to expand the AMS offering to more Sellers, Vendors and Advertisers across Canada and worldwide.
We started dreaming up Rainforest Digital a year ago with the idea that by combining Amazon’s service offering, as well as our extensive background in Search and Social Media Marketing, we could change how customers, brands and businesses of all sizes in Canada think about marketing through new channels and emerging platforms, such as Amazon.
We want to take a minute to thank everyone for reading this and encourage you to take risks, dream bigger and keep grinding it out. Great things come to those who are persistent, quit at nothing and support their team around them no matter what challenges come their way. The entrepreneurial journey never ends and requires faith in moments of certain failure.
Cheers to Growth,
Jeff Lancaster, Evan Tamblyn, Josiah Shelley and Jake Nicolle.
