MY ECOMMERCE BACKGROUND

Building Ecommerce Brands For 20 Years

Wearing the hats of employee, director, ecommerce business owner & consultant.

Finding my feet at a startup online magazine subscription 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 0 to £2m. 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 with founders and in-house teams to drive more revenues without increasing ad spend through the advanced use of today's ecommerce marketing technology. It makes scaling easier and more profitable.


“one of today’s leaders in Conversion Rate Optimization, people who don’t just talk the talk but put their theories to the test on a daily basis.”

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

how we work together

I work exclusively with funded startups and established retail or direct-to-consumer brands based in the UK or Europe. The majority of clients are omnichannel. Clients are already turning over a minimum of 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?
