Canal Digital Studio is a boutique Digital Marketing agency based in New York City. We alleviate the anxiety of digital growth by delivering more traffic, more conversions, better rankings and faster results.

We work primarily with DTC, SaaS, Consumer Product and eCommerce brands.

Our small team has previously worked at large and small agencies, corporate strategy consultancies and in-house marketing teams … we’ve worn all the hats and can attack your project from any angle.

We are marketing insiders who are less expensive, more knowledge, more nimble and less risky than a full-time digital marketing hire.

With a tight schedule, Vermicular aimed to launch into the American market for the first time. The brand enjoys near universal recognition in Japan, thanks to successful television advertising campaigns but had little to no experience with digital eCommerce strategy abroad. When they contacted Canal Digital Studio, the manufacturer needed guidance on where exactly to invest in digital growth.

Six months after launch, our team had directly driven over 45% of all launch traffic, achieved a 2.5x return on all digital ad spend and had created a clean organic search path for the brand.


Revenue Generated Upon Launch


New Unique Users

Professional and attentive to detail

The attention to detail with Canal Digital Studio’s professional staff is incredible. The entire team has proven to be not only innovative but also super knowledgeable. We’ve been working with them to grow our traffic and revenue for almost a year now and every month they simply blow our minds with innovative ideas. Their execution is meticulous and they always ensure results are in line with our expectations. I can’t recommend them strongly enough, definitely a no brainer and great ROI for us.

Efficient, flexible and easy to communicate with!

Working with Canal has been great! We have learned so much from them and also opened doors to other avenues we wouldn’t have considered without them. They are efficient with your time and money, which is great for a smaller business. In addition to being efficient they are flexible, if you have events or promos that pop up with very little time they are good at pivoting and adding it to their plan when needed. Great vibe all around.
