Ian Rhodes

Ecommerce Growth Coach

I'm Here To Guide You as you make key decisions and implement the advanced processes that drive next stage ecommerce growth

You're wary of escalating costs across Google and Facebook. Sometimes it feels great (when CPAs are in your favour) other times it can feel like a trap. My role is to work with you to help reduce acquisition costs. To do more to retain customers and to build community and loyalty around your brand. Something, perhaps, your agency partners don't appear to prioritise. They like to help you spend more.

Our work is both practical and strategic. The majority of our focus is placed upon conversion, customer retention and the ever evolving business model. To help you make best use of the marketing technology available to you. To invest wisely and get the most out of each tool you bring onboard.

I review traffic growth strategies and provide honest feedback. However, the key to profitable growth is turning those visitors into shoppers and those shoppers into repeat customers.

Our work together spans across:

Evolving the business model with ideas to help build your audience and develop clear differentiation in your market

Advising on recruitment, agency performance and helping in-house staff master their marketing skills

Ensure you're using the best marketing technology to automate, personalise and scale your business upon

Rapidly grow your email subscriber list to onboard potential customers

Growing your ecommerce business internationally - shipping strategies and returns policies

Establishing realistic acquisition cost targets

Develop your customer retention strategy to grow repeat business

Begin recovering more abandoned carts using behaviour-based email and messenger automations

Master email segmentation to drive personalisation

Optimise your Google Ads Shopping feed to target purchase-ready visitors

Focus your price, shipping & discounting strategy

Understand customer lifetime value & target your best customer profiles

To bring a clearer understanding of the use of data and customer-insight to make more informed decisions

Know the Shopify, WooCommerce & Magento apps that boost conversion and improve the customer experience

Personalising the entire customer journey

Recommendations for a Ecommerce coach or mentor

it can be fun!?

"I've worked with Ian since 2017 and he has been incredible!

He truly has become an essential part of the business and continues to exceed my high expectations in every way. Ian's also very fun to work with which is an added bonus!"

Recommendations for a Ecommerce coach or mentor

okay... there's a business value too...

"As a start up eCommerce business I quickly realised I needed some eCommerce support and expertise. I am so happy I found Ian as what he doesn’t know about eCommerce isn’t worth knowing! Without a doubt the business would not be where it is today without Ian.

He has supported me on everything; I rarely make a move without checking in with Ian. His balance of action alongside coaching is the ideal combination, allowing me to learn but jumping in when needed.

Ian has a fun and easy going nature allowing for honesty every step of the way that benefits you and your business. Forget structure, think more action and results! I would recommend Ian to any eCommerce business owner and plan to keep him involved in my business for many years to come."
