The Challenge

MealEnders Cravings Control lozenges (initially called MealEnders Signaling Lozenges) were launched in October 2014. With the exception of one PR hit that drove significant sales, their marketing efforts (primarily a dietitians convention, google ads, facebook ads, paid blog placements, and PR) were not resulting in cost-effective acquisition.

The Process

After fully taking over marketing for MealEnders in May 2015, I increased sales almost 5x in the second half of the year versus the first half, then 160% from year 1 to year 2, and 190% from year 2 to year 3. Growth was driven primarily by: 1) Personally scaling Facebook advertising from $5000 to 6-figures/month while reducing cost per acquisition (while fine-tuning the brand messaging), 2) launching/growing sales on Amazon, and 3) Launching an Email marketing program (and opt-in strategy) that increased repurchase rate by almost 80% and more than doubled the percentage of sales driven by email in 3 years even with tremendous topline growth. I also helped to secure and then leveraged an appearance on Shark Tank leading to over $500K in sales within 2 weeks following the airing, and several hundred thousand more in the following months.

The Solution

increased sales run rate 12.5X in 2.5 years (excluding Shark Tank sales bump) from $200K to a steady rate of $2.5MM for several months.

Prehired

  • To begin, we did a comprehensive needs analysis - uncovering which pages would need to be added, and how we could structure the site so the team could continue to iterate on it.


  • Next, we began devising the design system - how would the visual identity of the brand evolve to reflect this new direction?


  • Finally, with these assets in hand - we planned out the entire sitemap and URL structure, so everyone knew what the final site would entail. From there, we were off to the races!

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.
