I was able to completely overhaul the Deel paid ads program. Before I joined, the Deel team had no conversion tracking or attribution solution in place on their website. I was able to build out a robust data infrastructure to help them identify and measure the entire user journey, and identify average customer acquisition costs by channel.


To date, we've scaled our monthly ad budget by 650% since August while maintaining a stable customer acquisition cost over the past five months. We've also dropped the CPMs of our campaigns by 25%, which is extremely impressive given the fact that the financial industry is one of the most expensive avenues for advertising online.


Deel continues its trajectory of rapid growth every single month. Paid ads remains the top lever for growth across the entire organization.

The Challenge

Deel is a San Francisco-based financial tech startup. They received both Series A and Series B funding in 2020 and were looking for a paid acquisition marketer to help them reach their lofty growth goals.


Deel was looking for someone to rapidly implement and scale a five-figure monthly media budget across 5 different ad platforms. The goals were to acquire new leads to book demo calls with the sales teams, and also drive paid software signups through the website.


Deel is operating in a totally new and innovative financial space. They needed someone who could dive deep into paid acquisition analytics, but also consult on the best creative angles to speak to potential Deel prospects.

The Process

I worked closely with the Head of Growth at Deel to create brand new paid ads landing pages, original social creative, and original copywriting ideas. We spent a lot of time up front nailing all of our creative angles before launching any ads.


From there, we slowly ramped up our ad program across Google, Facebook, Bing, Linkedin, & Twitter. We focused on both prospecting brand new leads with high-quality look-a-likes and search queries, while also building out a robust retargeting program to convert lower-funnel users.


Month over month, as we continued to identify new benchmarks and run additional A/B tests, we worked to scale up the budget while maintaining a stable CAC. This process is ongoing and we continue to scale up the monthly ad budget every month.

The Solution

I was able to completely overhaul the Deel paid ads program. Before I joined, the Deel team had no conversion tracking or attribution solution in place on their website. I was able to build out a robust data infrastructure to help them identify and measure the entire user journey, and identify average customer acquisition costs by channel.

Renown Health Products

Renown was having great success with direct mailers since the 90's, but hadn't developed their online presence and paid media strategy. We had no data going in on which products to focus on, which channels to choose, or how to position ourselves in the market.

Cookies by Design

Take over digital marketing efforts, mainly Google CPC and social ads, and get account performance back to historic levels. CBD had experienced serious revenue issues after launching a new website. Total sales through digital were down 40% YoY, mainly stemming from digital channels and SEO.


We took over Google Ads and social ads, within 3 months account performance leveled off instead of falling weekly. In 6 months we were getting revenue not seen in over 12 months. By 2 years of the engagement, we had higher revenue results than ever before achieved with an ROAS of 12:1 from digital ad efforts with spends exceeding $50k/mo.

Koh

Koh is a D2C eco-friendly cleaning product, launched in 2016, and now selling to over 1M customers in Australia and the UK. With a rapid growing revenue of over $40M in this financial year (2021) and backed up by 60,000 incredible 5-star customer reviews they're taking on the nasty chemical cleaning industry. I've joined Koh in 2018, in the years that followed they expended to the UK and made incremental growth years. My challenge was that, without much experience, I had to manage 6 people and start this all from scratch.

PetO Pet Supplies

PetO were a traditional retail brand, the third largest chain of pet supplies in Australia. They decided to launch their eCommerce store in 2019, but did not see it as a key pillar of their brand until the pandemic, which customers online, as they were unable to visit the brick-and-mortar stores.


The ROAS was great at that time, during the lockdowns, however as customers returned to stores the ROAS began to quickly decline and the customer was concerned about the profitability of the site and their marketing activity. The ROAS had dropped a peak of~800% during lockdown to only ~250% a few months later.
