The majority of our work together follows one of two common briefs:

'The traffic's good, we're concerned about escalating acquisition costs and low conversion rates''.
'The conversions are healthy, we know there's still room for improvement as we scale up and increase AOV''.

The route we take, client by client, is always different.

The vast majority of our work focuses upon three key aspects. The data, the technology and the human touch.

Typically, our work together takes place across:

CUSTOMER INSIGHT: Gathering key data to understand potential conversion roadblocks

MARKETING TECHNOLOGY: Deciding the most appropriate tech that will aid your conversion process

ACTIONABLE DATA: Making sure Google Analytics is providing the correct information to work with as you track the impact of store micro-conversions


A/B TESTING PROCESS: Managing a continual process of testing across copy, imagery and prioritised across the shopping experience.

DRIVING LIST GROWTH: A/B testing messaging, timing and personalisation

REDUCING ABANDONED CARTS: Optimising automated flows using customer and product data to personalise messaging

IMPROVING PRODUCT PAGE LAYOUT: Giving people easy access to the information they need

COPYWRITING FOR CONVERSION: Building trust, removing anxiety and writing persuasive copy with absolute clarity

PERSONALISATION: Managing a process that delivers a truly personalised shopping experience based upon data and customer behaviour

EDUCATING VISITORS: Using Email sequences to empower customers

ESTABLISHING TRUST & EASING ANXIETY: Social proofing your website

EMAIL SEGMENTATION & FUNNEL AUTOMATIONS: Building, testing and optimising new flows using email and messenger to drive profitable sales

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

Ecommerce Conversion CopywriterMy 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 worked as a CRO specialist 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 digital sales environment.

For my clients I provide a wealth of ecommerce marketing experience dating back to 1996. The days before Google. Remember them?
