evolve your marketing STRATEGY
Starting out? Next stage ecommerce growth? Where to begin? Your customer.
You’ve reached the stage where you’re ready to lay the foundations for your next phase of business growth. Your brand has already achieved revenue success, mainly reliant on paid ads, and it’s clear that there’s a huge opportunity to build out your audience, increase conversion and more importantly now, customer retention.
My role is to help review, plan and prioritise the work ahead. To help you understand channel performance, carefully review each step of your user’s journey, dig deep into customer insights and set the framework to help you achieve next stage customer-led growth. To evolve your marketing strategy away from heavy investment in advertising to building your own route to ecommerce growth. Profitably and sustainably.
Typically clients are already posting revenue figures of £50k-£500k per month and based in the UK or Europe. I also work alongside funded startups to ensure the foundations are set from the beginning.
This can either be a one-off project with specific objectives or an ongoing partnership. Get in touch to learn more.

create a revenue-driving, community-building, trust-enabling, profit-generating, timed-to-perfection, utterly rewarding email welcome series for your subscribers
Learn how to convert more new store visitors into subscribers into buyers creating highly personalised welcome sequences
Welcome sequences are a ridiculously powerful tool for brands to use to drive customer acquisition. They're not just a mechanism for discount code delivery. They're built to help your new subscriber make their first purchase with ease.
Welcome sequences (flows and series) are massively under-utilised. You have the ability to personalise the entire process, from overlay through to a perfectly timed behaviour-triggered email series.
Learning through optimisation is the key. Building out a process of continual testing to drive subscriber and attributed revenue growth. Testing copy, testing imagery, testing timing, testing deliver mechanism. Constant marginal gains that significantly impact your ecommerce success.
Drive down acquisition costs and drive up conversion mastering the art of the welcome series. Get in touch to learn more.
