"Ian comes with a wealth of experience and it really showed when he set up much of our "marketing machine" for our purpose-driven e-commerce startup.

From making recommendations for our tech stack to quickly adopting our brand's tone of voice in writing copy that converts to implementing experiments at all funnel levels, Ian was invaluable.

In particular, his work on Klaviyo has set the groundwork for our customer retention. It was a pleasure working with Ian!"

Working with Ian at Ecommerce Growth for the past six months has been fantastic!

Ian’s way of working suits our ethos very well, getting across the brand’s personality and speaking to our customers in a more ‘human’ way. I feel he gets our brand and who our customer is very well. 

He keeps us focused on critical things like profit, growing our customer base, and making the most of our loyal customers. It’s nice to see a marketer that doesn’t suggest giving away lots of discounts and spending a ton of money on ads to grow our business! Ian’s way is a more long-term approach that will benefit us for years to come, not just for now! 

We have implemented new things, including optimising and refining stuff we were doing but could improve upon, like our email flows. The advice is data-driven, and all the small but necessary tweaks are paying off. Because he is always looking at the data, he can spot any issues and advise on solutions.

The team have learnt a lot from Ian; his helpful video tutorials have been great. He knows the best software to use and how best to implement it. He is on hand when we have questions or if something urgent is happening; he has become part of our team over these last six months. 

I recommend working with Ian if you want to grow your ecommerce brand long-term, focusing on profit and building a loyal customer base and not just sending out the same discounts and copy as every other brand.

Working with Ian is probably the best thing that has happened to us in the last 6 years. Ian has managed to help us turn a corner by training up our team immensely.

He is extremely knowledgeable & has the ability to transform an Ecommerce business by bringing all the elements in-house & reducing costs.

Starting with the platform migration from Magento to Shopify. There was no compromise on design or functionality. This was by far the smoothest migration we have ever experienced.

Once the platform was in place, Ian’s best skill set was yet to be discovered. Ian is probably the most skilled SEO expert I have come across. He not only provided us with the full site optimization but also taught us to understand our customers.

We now have a fantastic marketing plan including a retention strategy that is synchronized throughout all channels.
