"Samarkand’s expertise in digital marketing coupled with their strong logistics network helped provide an end-to-end solution for us. They took care of everything from registration to shipping to create a seamless entry for us into the Chinese market. Their digital marketing expertise helped partner with some of the biggest KOL’s in China to create content, accelerate demand, and thereby improve brand awareness.
Sam, David, Siwei, Rachel, Yanghong – everyone in their team has been an absolute delight to work with. They are very responsive, hands on, and always ready to brainstorm to support the brand in any way possible."

"Samarkand has the distribution expertise in the skincare industry, which means they can help us source a wide range of partners and channels to maximise our growth opportunity. They also have China experts who have on the ground knowledge, providing us with relevant market insights and advice.
We have seen the early creation of 2 hero SKUs, gained excellent listings with some high profile wholesale partners, are about to launch onto Tmall and have gained some great brand momentum across many social channels."
- CLARE MCMULLEN
"I think it is crucial to have the right partner to launch in China, therefore we didn’t make any move until our partnership with Samarkand.
From the beginning I really trusted your great expertise. You have a great sense of which products are of particular interest in China and can give great recommendations to grow the business. The whole team is amazing but the relationship to Eva and Sam is really special. We have great conversations and trust each other. I always have the feeling that Eva and Sam are very much interested in what’s the best for Royal Fern."
