Helping People Buy Online Since 1996
The next 100 people to visit your store... what if you could persuade just one extra person to make their purchase?... and what if that happened without having to discount your products any further?
... and what if you could learn how to sell consistently better?
I help create, launch and optimise the conversion strategies that motivate more of your store visitors to buy what you sell.
Working together you'll discover how to make it easier for people to shop your products. The entire shopping experience, before and after the sale. The copy, the product imagery, the navigation and checkout process. You'll learn how each customer touchpoint can be better used to build trust and persuade customers to shop. It's what I've been doing now for 20+ years working with 380+ ecommerce brands.
Ultimately, it's about growing revenue, driving up profitability and reducing your customer acquisition costs (nobody likes spending more on ads, so let's learn how to convert more customers)
Ecommerce CRO Expert
this is about people buying from people
all work begins with a complete review of the customer journey from first click to conversion - the good, the bad and the ugly
are you using emotive sales copy that connects your brand with your customer and sits at the core of your marketing work?
are you creating landing pages that build context, create intrigue and inspire purchase (without talking price)? you should be.
can you customer find all the information they need to have the confidence to make their purchase? If not, how will you discover those insights?
are you a/b testing popup messaging to gather customer insight and help you send better...more personalised... welcome flows?
do your email welcome flows tell the story of your product, your people and your processes rather than pushing product based on price? are you testing new ideas?
what about post-purchase surveying? Immediately after the sale, ask questions that help you better understand the reasons people buy what you sell.
have you gathered and shared customer success stories? are you giving your visitors a feel good feeling about what life would be like owning your product?
forget fake UGC... gain authentic trust... how are you inspiring customers to leave real reviews (written, images and videos?) that become your marketing gold?
how have you optimised cart and browse abandonment flows that make purchasing your products feel like an obvious choice to make?
have you eased the checkout process to give your customer, every step of the way, the information they need to confidently make their purchase?
are you using what you now know to optimise your facebook ads strategies so that you can scale with a little more confidence?
“A genius at story telling and portraying the true essence of our product."James New: Founder of Jessie and James
where do you start?...
The majority of our work together follows one of two common briefs that impact your ability and confidence to scale;
'Traffic's healthy, but why are we seeing low conversion rates...?'
'People are buying, but what could we be doing to improve conversion further?'
The route I take, client by client, is always different.
The vast majority of our work focuses upon three key aspects:
Customer insights, the use of technology and the human touch.
Typically, our work together takes place across:
CUSTOMER INSIGHT: Gathering qualitative data to understand what motivates people to shop your products and what may stop people buying
COPYWRITING FOR CONVERSION: Building trust, removing anxiety and writing persuasive copy with absolute clarity. Add a little of the human touch. Bingo.
CREATING PRODUCT CONTEXT PAGES: Real conversion gold here. Pages that are built around the context that your visitors land on your site. A hybrid page that is built without the restrictions of platform templates. Easy to manage and setup. Ridiculously powerful at converting visitors into shoppers through your email campaigns.
TECH STACK: Make best use of the tools that help personalise your customer's shopping experience inc. Klaviyo, review and personalisation platforms.
REAL ACTIONABLE DATA: Making sure GA4 and your site tracking tools are providing the correct information to work with as you track the steps and actions of your customers.
REMOVING CONVERSION ROADBLOCKS: Actioning the quick wins that most brands miss (as they spend all day every day on their store)
A/B TESTING PROCESS: I'm here to manage a continual process of testing across copy, imagery and call to actions across the shopping experience. Long form vs short form copy? What works best? Test.
CREATING PRODUCT VALUE FLOWS: using traditional email welcome series 'tactics' and tailoring based on what you already know about your customer (there's a lot you may not know!)
REDUCING ABANDONED CARTS: Using your reviews and customer voice through the cart abandoner series will transform cart recovery success.
EDUCATING VISITORS: Why are people leaving your site? Pricing or that you haven't yet demonstrated the value of your product to your potential customer? Build on trust.
ESTABLISHING TRUST : Don't leave valuable customer reviews to collect dust in the footer of your product pages. They're conversion gold. I'll show you how to put customer voice to real use on your product page.
The list goes on. You get the picture.
When necessary, I can introduce trusted freelance developers, ecommerce copywriters, designers and data analysts to offer you a full CRO service to collaborate with your in-house team.

20+ years (I've stopped counting now...) learning what motivates people to buy online
My time in the ecommerce marketing world has been split between roles as an employer, employee and consultant;
- My career in digital marketing began in 1997 as Head of Marketing for one of the UK's first pure eCommerce businesses. Back in the days pre-Google, pre-competition, pre-secure servers....
- For 4 years I was the European Marketing Director for the world's largest travel company working from my swanky office in Mayfair.
- Then I said 'to hell with it...' and launch my own retail startup which grew to £2m turnover in 3 years.
For the past 10 years I've dedicated my time to building my optimisation consultancy, Ecommerce Growth Co. Working on short and long term projects holding a high level of accountability to profitable revenue growth and website optimisation for online retailers and direct-to-consumer brands.
The focus has always been on how we motivate people to take the actions that help grow revenue. The win/win.
I've specialised in fixing conversion problems with over 200 ecommerce clients. Fulfilling a wide variety of roles in an ever widening variety of markets. My work takes place alongside retail companies, direct-to-consumer startups and established brands alike.
It's also what keeps you on your toes. It's what ensures you never stop learning in this ever changing ecommerce sales environment.
For my clients I provide a wealth of ecommerce marketing experience dating back to 1996. The days before Google. Remember them?
