MY ECOMMERCE BACKGROUNDBuilding ecommerce brands for 20+ years
Wearing the hats of employee, director, ecommerce business owner & consultant.
Finding my feet at a startup online retailer way back in 1996. When animated gifs first roamed the ‘net and web browsers were at the version 1.0 stage.
4 years on, I moved on to Priceline.com taking the role of European Marketing Director. Learning sustainable growth at a market innovator who are now the world’s largest travel company.
In 2004 I launched my own ecommerce business. From scratch and bootstrapped. Doing the things you’ve done. Balancing time and energy marketing my business and running my business.
For the past 10 years my time has been dedicated to my ecommerce consulting business, working alongside ambitious ecommerce brands, direct-to-consumer & retailers, to review, plan and optimise the steps towards building an ecommerce brand for the long haul.
your questions answeredhow we can work together
I work exclusively with ecommerce dtc brands & retailers trading online. It’s where I’ve plied my trade for 20 years. My clients are direct-to-consumer brands, niche retailers, established retail brands, heritage brands, luxury brands. Both UK and internationally focused. Most clients are already turning over 6-7 figures per year. I do work with ambitious startups too.
Businesses that value their customers. Know their customers. Businesses built on behalf of their customers. I have to believe in the products you’re selling. Whether premium brands or innovative products. We have to share an understanding that there’s a demand for what you sell.
I work alongside senior management to plan & in-house marketing teams to implement. You might also be transitioning from an outsourced agency who simply didn’t perform and now you want to bring your marketing in-house?
