“A genius at story telling and portraying the true essence of our product."James New: Founder of Jessie and James

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 qualitative data to understand what motivates people to shop your products and what may stop people buying

COPYWRITING FOR CONVERSION: Building trust, removing anxiety and writing persuasive copy with absolute clarity. Add a little of the human touch. Bingo.

CREATING PRODUCT CONTEXT PAGES: Real conversion gold here. Pages that are built around the context that your visitors land on your site. A hybrid page that is built without the restrictions of Shopify templates. Easy to manage and setup. Ridiculously powerful at converting visitors into shoppers through your email campaigns.

EMAIL TECH STACK: Make best use of the tools that help personalise your customer's shopping experience inc. Klaviyo, review and personalisation platforms.

REAL ACTIONABLE DATA: Making sure Google Analytics is providing the correct information to work with as you track the impact of your email flows and campaigns

REMOVING CONVERSION ROADBLOCKS: Actioning the quick wins that most brands miss (as they spend all day every day on their store)

A/B TESTING PROCESS: High volume emails? I'm here to manage a continual process of testing across copy, imagery and call to actions across the shopping experience. Long form vs short form copy? What works best? Test.

CREATING PRODUCT VALUE FLOWS: using traditional welcome series 'tactics' and tailoring based on what you already know about your customer (there's a lot you may not know!)

REDUCING ABANDONED CARTS: Using your reviews and customer voice through the cart abandoner series will transform cart recovery success.

EDUCATING VISITORS: Create browser abandonment campaigns that help teach your customer everything they need to know to make their purchase. Built on trust.

ESTABLISHING TRUST : Don't leave valuable customer reviews to collect dust in the footer of your product pages. They're conversion gold. I'll show you how to put them to real use in your email flows and campaigns.

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?
