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.

Although the campaign CTR was very high, the landing page conversion rate wasn't satisfying. I implemented a heat map to recognize where the problem is. I realized that we are missing more images on the product page. once the client added more photos, the CR increased dramatically

Mason Developments

Mason Developments needed help launching their new development Olde Cork Farm. This property development company needed a whole, new brand image. Previously marketing highrise apartments, this new development was focused on country living and modern farm-style homes.

Instead of marketing simply the houses I created a marketing strategy to immerse their audience into the entire lifestyle. They aren't buying a house, they're buying an exclusive lifestyle for their family. Wake up in the morning with the heartwarming sounds of birds chirping, feeling the cool morning breeze. Sunrise through to sunset in the mountains. Driving through beautiful wine farms. Wild horses and parks where dogs play. Showing the essence of what it means to be so fortunate to live in Constantia. A level of luxury, splendour, and warm sophistication. Memories and nostalgia are the main themes of the story, connecting the viewers with the brand and leaving them feeling emotionally moved.
