Helping People Buy Online Since 1996

there's so much your customers are already telling you (you just need to know how to discover those key insights)

Firstly, this isn't about pinging surveys out to your customers. This is about how you gather insights along each step of your customers' buying journey (before and after the sale) to help you deliver them a better shopping experience.

From data held in your advertising and search platforms on how customers find you to the key insights you can gather quickly and easily on your customer's experience buying and using your products. All vital responses that will shape the way you market your business from the viewpoint of your ideal customers. This is customer-led ecommerce growth.

20+ years (I've stopped counting now...) learning
how to build and grow truly customer-centric ecommerce brands

Ecommerce Customer Insights & CX ConsultancyMy time in the ecommerce 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 13 years I've dedicated my time to building my customer insights consultancy, Ecommerce Growth Co. Working on short and long term projects helping retailers and direct-to-consumer brands learn more about their customers and to use that insight to create a pathway to future growth.
